I guess that's not too terribly far off.
Needless to say, the very thought sends the otaku in me into a frenzy. I would do this in a heartbeat.
But there are a few pretty big cons: 1) I have yet to find any way to contract a teaching job for less than a year. Poncho is not willing to go for a whole year; 2) The companies I've looked at insist that married couples be responsible for separate apartments, and only say they'll try to put them near each other. Excuse me?! That's epically lame.
New Zealand is looking more and more promising. Everyone I knew who lived there moved to the States, but I do still have a cousin once removed there, so we wouldn't be entirely on our own. And we've had friends move there temporarily before. It's still on the maybe list.
Alaska is also still a maybe. It's cold! As a rule, I hate being cold. But it's also... neat. We visited once. And Poncho recently watched a documentary on gang activity in Anchorage, which for some reason made him even more interested. Should I worry?
We worry too much about the exchange rate in Europe, and have no clue where to even begin trying to get jobs. I guess that makes it a no.
Japan - oh please please please
New Zealand - maybe
Alaska - maybe
Europe - non, nine, nie
The suspense is kind of killing me.
