I don't know quite what to do with this, in many ways, LJ was a dead end. I need a place to express myself, to keep a record, maybe to make connections.

My LJ entries were rather cursory, and I might attempt to do a more involved, narrative post, where I get to the bottom of my feelings, whatever those are.

But for people just tuning in:

I am Matthew, I am a United States citizen who lives in Santiago, Chile. I work as an English teacher, to adults. I am 37 years old, and have done a lot of things, although sometimes not as many as I would like or think I should. I teach English to adults, in a business setting, so my days are mostly me travelling to different places at different hours. My classes are usually 1 or 2 people. Its a hard job to explain.

My time is cut up into inconvenient chunks, so I don't really have any time for "hobbies". There is a rushed quality to my life, which is in contrast to the expansiveness I had when I lived in Montana...of course, in Montana, I was unemployed and lived with my mother.

One of my goals on being here is to be able to think more about what I really want out of life. My life has been such a whirl that I haven't really had any time to be myself. I hope to change that, but I don't know how.

Oddly enough, I can sympathize to a certain extent. I'm just a few years older than you at 41, but for much of my 20's, I lived with my mother after having failed at life on my own at first.

I'm also trying to find change in my life. Right now, I'm attempting to apply to a job at work to do what I like (working with computers and people) and to make a bit more money to help pay off some loans.

I've had to develop and make time for hobbies in recent time. It's difficult when things get fast paced, but easier when routine sets in.
