This is the time when you should be thankful for having a husband and a family; no doubt it is one of the most difficult times in your life, but a husband and a family is definitely something to be thankful for. He worked nights at clubs in the evening, took care of the kids, cooked and cleaned, and did countless other tasks that kept the family together. He never said, “I’m too tired,” or “I’ve had enough.” He worked as hard as he could just to provide for his family.
If you have ever worked in the graveyard shift, or for an undetermined amount of time on a summer camp, you will know what I mean when I say that working in the graveyard shift is no fun at all. But it’s a fact of life. If you’re lucky enough to be employed in a middle-class job, you may have a pleasant experience there. But if you’re working in a low-paying job, you are going to have to work even harder just to get by. If you want to have a fulfilling middle-class experience, consider learning to cook, clean, and otherwise contribute to society by becoming a cleaner, a tutor, or a tutor’s apprentice.
My nightlife right now is a bit more mundane than it used to be. I used to go out with my friends every weekend. Now, I usually return home late and eat a good night’s sleep. Most of my friends are gone for good, so I find myself alone most of the time. Life seems to be moving a little faster than usual.
The best way to have a fulfilling middle-class life is to learn how to help others. That’s why I teach English classes at a small church. When I first got started as an English teacher, people asked me what my real job was. I thought that I had to answer all of the emails, phone calls, and requests for advice. Fortunately, I have found that my best day is always when I have helped a person solve a problem, build confidence, or just learn a thing or two.
So, if you’re looking for a job that doesn’t involve a lot of hard work, but allows you to spend quality time with your family, a great career choice is teaching English as a foreign language. If you’ve always wanted to travel to Asia, then teaching English in China would be a dream come true. Or if you love the snowy mountains, or the beaches, living in Alaska would be a great job. There are jobs all over the world, but the best part of being a travel instructor is the ability to help people on their ways to a better life through words. That’s why I feel so proud to share these words of wisdom from my own home life:
I think one of the best things about being an English teacher is that you can work from home – which means that you can save money. Another great benefit is that you can choose to travel around the world, or just stay close by to your home life. In fact, there are even jobs where you work in your pajamas! Of course, I would never suggest working as an employee from home, but sometimes, you just need a break from the constant pressure of your home life!
