Oh, hey. I'm Kristin.
I started writing this blog to talk about my move to Cali, Colombia where I teach 8th grade math. Now I write about my cross-cultural encounters with my students and my early years as a new teacher. I write about the incredible adventures to be found in Colombia. I write about the people I have met here, like my roommate Kelsi. I write about the amazing people I left behind in Minnesota. Sometimes I write about my obsession with television or the Minnesota Twins or photography or whatever thing I happen to love at the moment. Or don't love - like people who fail at traveling. And cats. Cats are the worst. And then there are times where life just seems full of endless questions, so I write about that too. And sometimes I just write to write it all down.
What do you need to know about me to read this blog? I believe I'm fiercely independent. I believe that I could write my life story in John Mayer lyrics. I believe there is a deep inter-connectedness to our lives and to the world. I believe I am an ENTJ to the core. I believe the choices we make everyday come to define our lives. I believe in the power of our shared experiences - preferably over a good iced chai, pitcher of sangria, or banana chocolate chip pancakes.
