The Chronicles of Wes - Soon to be Self Published

I was never one to take the conventional route.  Heck, I don't even care to wander along the path less traveled.  Thus far, I've chosen to bushwhack my way through life.  A modern day trailblazer.  I'd rather drive than fly.  But I'd also rather walk than ride in a car.  If anything, I think this shows that I like to move slow.  But as the saying goes - slow and steady wins the race.  Over the years I've been able to cover an extensive amount of ground simply because I've ALWAYS been on the move.

For the longest time, I've lived my life keeping in mind one essential question.  If my life were a book, would anyone want to read it?  Books are meant to share interesting stories, anecdotes, and narratives.  That's exactly how I've wanted my life to turn out.  Full of interesting stories and experiences.  Fortunately, I've been able to continuously discover a series of diverse new experiences.  Now that I find myself back in the United States, I plan to write about some of these experiences.  More specifically, I'm going to write about my experiences teaching abroad.  It's not often that we get answers to the way we live our lives.  But I guess I may get an answer to my question after all.

Regardless of what happens with my writing endeavors, looking back on the past I can honestly say that I have no regrets.  If I could do it all over again I wouldn't change a thing.  And to me, that's the true benchmark of success.
