To start life over again in the US
I've just moved back from Barcelona, where I had the great experience to teach English for the past year. Now I'm in beautiful New Orleans once again, where my soul is second lining triumphantly through these vibrant streets.
I am a person who really likes to learn. If i could be a professional student I would, however, it seems money tends to go out more than it comes in that profession. I love museums, art galleries, live jazz, and going out at night. My hobbies include writing, reading, making short films, watching movies, biking, and looking for new music. I really like learning foreign languages and I am constantly trying to learn and explore different cultures in search of a better understanding of the world. I'd really like to explore both east and west Europe. I am also extremely fascinated with Eastern Culture. I'd really like to tour China and Japan.
I don't like spending most of the day time inside and I suppose I don't like staying inside at night either. I like to constantly be doing something because I know there is always something that can be done at any time. As far as going out at night, I like to go to places where I can dance like discotecas or clubs, but usually I'll start off at a bar or two before doing so. I really like to meet people and feel involved with the places I live at. I want to feel rooted with the people who live around me. I am looking to be involved is some club or activity and I'd love to get to know my local music and art scene.
Some of my favorite websites are Netflix.com, TED.com and NPR.org
**QUICK NOTE** If you're coming to visit New Orleans, I thought that this would be a nice little list of Do's and Do not's to show you: http://www.concierge.com/ideas/hotspots/tours/501343
This should give you a good start on getting more out of you visit.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I've run with the bulls in Pamplona and I travel around working on movie sets. That stuff is really fun! I've lived in Spain three times and Rome and India for a month. I mean there are lots of cool stuff that I have done, but I'm also sure you all have done amazing things! Let's chat and discuss these things over coffee! I love to tell stories and, likewise, I love to hear them.

I can help people with learning Spanish and English. If someone could help me learn an instrument, that would great.
