Strangelife: How I Learned to Stop Worrying & Become a Porteño

Tengo un aviso emocionante: Me estoy trasladando a Buenos Aires en agosto!

In other words, I’m starting a new life in Buenos Aires, Argentina starting mid-August. I received acceptance today into a TESOL certification course and after graduating in September I will hopefully get a job teaching English in Argentina or thereabouts.

This has happened very suddenly in one sense, yet in another I’ve been preparing for this kind of thing for awhile. I looked at a number of locations around the world, but when I stumbled upon Buenos Aires things kind of clicked mentally in a way they hadn’t for other spots and I’ve approached something resembling peace about this decision. I’ll be living in a student apartment with, I think, two others and the course itself runs four weeks for a combined 120+ hours of study.

Anyway, just thought I’d share my news. It hasn’t fully sunk in yet, and I’ll feel even more excited/terrified once I book my flight (IND -> EZE for ~$450 sounds amazing, right?). I’m already brushing up on my Spanish. Wish me luck.

    All those years of speaking English are about to pay off.
