26 and No Career, Yet

Lately, I’ve been thinking about my career. I’m 26 and I live in a foreign country. I left home a few years ago in pursuit of a career in International Education. After my second year abroad, I realized that
International Education isn’t what I want to do. I’m glad I had the opportunity to travel and discover that’s not what I want to do, instead of staying at home and yearning for an opportunity to move abroad. I
know that teaching English is one sector of International Education. However, it was the position that I was most qualified for at that point, and still am. Now, I have to begin thinking about a career switch.

I’m still young and haven’t had that much professional experience, so it’s not too difficult to make a career switch. I would like some advice from those who have changed careers once twice or even three times, how did you do it? What were the challenges you faced and how did you overcome them? What advice would you give to someone trying to change their career in their late 20s?

Anyways, let’s talk about my day. It’s been very gloomy looking where I live. The weather has been so strange lately. First it was really hot and humid. At some points, it was almost unbearable. Now, it’s starting to cool off but it’s been so rainy. If you live in East Asia, you know that if it rains two days in a row you are going to be behind on laundry.

I started off my day with a coffee, scrambled eggs, an orange and episodes of Beauty Break. I really don’t know why I watch their videos, but the women on there are so entertaining that I can’t help but watch.

For lunch, I had a shrimp salad with lemon vinaigrette, gazpacho and soy
yogurt with PB&J crumble.

For dinner, I had a variety of foods from 7/11. I was going to cook tonight, but I didn’t feel like it after meal prepping yesterday. However, yesterday’s dinner was lit af. I made peanut soup with baked chicken. Girl, I was living.
