What I'm Doing Now
- I just finished a 104 voyage around the world on Peace Boat on November 24! It was truly a unique experience where I got to see 23 different ports in 19 countries, learn from guest speakers on board, and meet some truly unique people on board. Great experience, though I still have a lot of processing to do.
- From December 28 to January 5, I joined Peace Boat again on their 2017/2018 New Years Cruise! to Taiwan and Okinawa. It was a different experience being the only non-Japanese staff, but it was a lot of fun and chance to see a different side of the Peace Boat, this time more from the staff side instead of a volunteer.
- I would like to do some research. Currently I am looking into how environment impacts learning, and am thinking about doing it on Peace Boat which is a pretty unique venue! It is not very often that you have a mobile classroom! I am also very interested in language identity, and how learning another language can move you out of your comfort zone to make you reconsider how you communicate with others.
- Finally finished reading Ringworld, and found out the secret of the engineers. It was a fascinating world to enter, and makes me think about what mysteries await us out in space.
