I’ve been keeping this one close, but now that the contracts are signed, it’s safe to announce. I’m moving back to Taiwan to start a 9-5 editorial position in Taipei.
This is exciting. I’ll be happy to see all my friends in Taiwan, and Taipei is an awesome place to be. It’s as cosmopolitan as New York, but I can get a nice apartment in central Taipei for 1/3 the price of a shoebox in Brooklyn. The job will be mentally challenging—editing technical ESL documents—and will probably melt my brain on a daily basis, but I’m looking forward to the challenge.
Between pineapple bread and bubble tea, I’ll survive : )
The next few weeks will be hectic. I have to settle my visa, pack, and get loose ends tied up on the home front. Plus, I’ve got Dreamin’ in Dallas coming up this week.
If all goes well, I’ll be settled in Taipei by mid April.
I will spend my remaining time in the U.S. hoarding Cadbury eggs and gaining 20lbs. in Mexican food weight.
