Bad choices make good stories. I saw this poster a few days after arriving in Budapest a few weeks ago. It really resonated with me - because I wondered what had I done? How had I left my family for a semester to teach in a foreign country alone, so far from home, with absolutely no grasp of the language? What was I thinking???
This blog is an attempt to catalog my experiences while I am abroad teaching as a Fulbright Scholar in Budapest, Hungary at ELTE. Hopefully I will get to chronicle my mostly good, but undoubtedly, also some difficulty experiences that I am sure to have.
Because I have always understood that life is short, I have spent a good part of my life trying to experience as many things as I could. That has sometimes meant making what appears to others to be bad choices, or at least crazy choices, Too often in life woman are told that they can't do things - but that's not always true.
This is what this Fulbright is meaning for me - making a crazy (but NOT bad) choice in order to live more deeply and fully - in order to tell good stories, because life is just too short to not live it.
