busy, busy, busy…

4 Jun

I know. The blog has been horribly slow.

I’m getting things sorted for Tallinn and toying with a few things. Last weekend I took an intensive TEFL course, which may open a few opportunities over in Estonia to teach English. Indeed I’m thinking – in the long term – of maybe opening a small language school of my own. Not sure; but you know me, if there is the slightest chance of a business opportunity…

I also have some fiction I want to develop, for a book or a screenplay. I have bought the excellent Scrivener, which is looking to be a treat and a great writing solution.

I’m going to continue to write my travel and politics entries here, but I may cross post relevant ones over at Rational Geekery. I actually expect RatGeek to be busier than tygerland as I get stuck into some tech stuff. This will remain my “personal” blog… for now.

BTW. I’m getting on wonderfully with my MacBook Pro.

    Scrivener looks like an excellent bit of kit. + I like their website. My friend ran a summer EFL school in Peterborough for years. made good money from it too. His brother went to Spain 20 years ago to teach English and he never came back. Married a local girl and loves his life in Gallicia. Damn, I wish I was 30 again 😦

    Hi Mike,Yeah, loving Scrivener – for writing long pieces with research. Still liking Journler for shorter bits ‘n’ posts, although thinking Evernote could fill that gap.I can’t see me scratching out a career as a 4-hire EFL teacher – not for long anyway, but private tuition or running a small language school may be ideal. I’d need more accreditation to run a language school, though.
