interesting question by Wolf:
“have you not gone to university yet”?
Well, I’m sure he would know, that i wouldn’t be working here legally if i hadn’t gone to university…anyway, yes i have been to uni numerous times and have now gotten to the stage of having two undergrad degrees (one with a double major in media and computing) and another degree with asian studies majoring in chinese. these were followed by yet another post grad course as well as a masters course. so i think i have been to uni.
it is a well known fact in my country that many people eventually do not end up in a career that is based on their studies. this is about 10 or so years after they completed uni. i am now getting rather close to 40 and still have a strong interest in what i studied though.
the reason i am seeking the entreprenurial route is that i am sick of getting tossed around like a lump of meat by someone else and i am sick of busting my balls for someone else to get rich. time to get off the corporate bus and do it my own way i feel
currently i am working on a project that is related to media and computing and of course taiwan and australia as well as working on a few other little projects as well and liekwise some people have already approached me to help them with a few things as well in terms of trade.
but anyway, yes taiwan is a good place to be as it is a dynamic and well, interesting place to make money. however sooner or later most of us have to leave this place and head back to our fair countries so from that, i am more than curious about what people thnk they will do with themselves when they do finally go back home.
i understand that there are a lot of teachers here so what do these people expect to do back home. i’ve heard of how tough it is for esl tachers to go back home ( and thats for the qualified ones) but what about the make believe teachers - what do they expect to do back home.
althernatively, how many people are seriously considering staying in taiwan until they are old and grey? then what…
