“Man knows – he knows that nothing will begin unless he speaks and that nothing will change unless he moves.” – Vash the Stampede


Hi, I am Jennifer. According to my stats, not many people click on this page. To celebrate this great accomplishment, I am going to go type some random stuff that most people will never read.

Onions are the bane of my existence. I prefer console gaming to computer gaming. Failed high dive attempts left me with a ruptured eardrum and chipped front tooth. I am more apt to read about a movie on Wikipedia than to actually watch it. Edgar Allan Poe’s death has plagued me since birth.  I am horribly afraid of fish. There is always gum in my mouth. I once sprained my ankle power-walking in Disney World. Obsessing over boy bands is one of my strong suits. I type around 80 words per minute. Lastly, I enjoy looking in the mirror when crying.

  2. Hey Jen,

    I came upon your blog in consideration in researching a placement with CETP. I was wondering if I could email you a couple questions and get your opinion on the program? Any help would be great. Thank you!!


    • Tiffany – yes, of course! I have been emailing a lot of new CETP-ers for a while now. Be on the look out for an email – one is heading your way in about a minute or so!

  3. Great blog. I moved from Toronto two years ago to Budapest, and its so interesting reading about your views and thoughts about Budapest and Europe as I compare them to mine. Anyways keep up the posts 🙂

    • Anna, I have actually been here a year (well, a year in four days!). I teach at a bilingual primary school. Last year I taught grades 5th and 6th and this year I will teach grades 7th and 8th.

  4. Hi,

    I’m a newbie blogger. Do you have any tips for writing a travel/teaching abroad blog? As in: Can you teach me your ways?

    I want to impress my friend(s) who enjoy judging me.

    • Your friend(s) who enjoy judging you sound(s) hot. I don’t know. It’s just a feeling I have.

      Pro tip: Cater you blog to your judgmental friend(s).

  5. My wife and I are looking at the CETP program in Hungary, it appears that is what you went through. Can you email us? Would love some information before committing to it!
