Where I am at right now

My name is Alex.  I am 26 years old and I live in South Korea capitulating young minds.  I work on contract here and spend my off time traveling or planning a backpacking trip.  I will be leaving here in March to go to India and South East Asia before settling somewhere new that will employ me.

I have spent a brief time as a delivery driver, waiter, childcare technician, courtesy clerk, concert promoter, warehouse supervisor, secretary, singer, journalist, poet, writing tutor, master of ceremonies, soccer coach, water carrier, ditch digger, shit mover, basketball coach, and chess teacher from what I remember off the top of my head.

I have been on 4 continents some more than a few times in the last 3 years.  In that time I have taught english, math, and science, fought a Russian military officer, eaten every part of a sheep, and much of a scorpion, dog, horse, and silkworm, seen a man made structure older than stonehenge, climbed a mountain for 7 straight hours, rode the world’s tallest fastest and most looped roller coasters, saw Judas Priest, been drunk with the young and old of many asian countries, fed and washed the clothes of hundreds of orphans, seen a million dollar firework show, slept in a Russian church, and rocked a Moroccan kasbah.

Hopefully this time next year I am making a buttload of cash in Australia then making my way back to Indonesia for some diving instruction.  Then I am off to learn more from a “higher institution”.

    I love you alex and glad to hear from your autobiography ( much of which I assume is fake) that you are finding yourself quite well. Anywhoo state side I have nothing to report. americans are still stupid, I still need to grow up, portland is still full of annoying hipsters. The fast food is getting faster and the movies less stimulating, Cars are getting greener and nothing but the christmas theatrical release of the latest Heath Leadger film to keep me going.

    Best holiday wishes and sparkles to my dear old Long Beach.


    ps send me yr street address and I can send you a holiday card. I think that would be real nice.

    pps sweet blog.

      have to say that there isnt a fake thing on there. I will send you my address. It is great hearing from you and miss seeing you very much. Get the hell out of portland and meet me in India in March. I hear it is the next stop for the hipsters after leaving Cali and going to portland.
