Life After ESL: 2 Years in Canada, the Update

Recent Blog Posts - Tue, 2018-01-16 02:56

As I scroll through my Facebook news feed while eating breakfast, there are more and more memories of the time I spent getting ready to leave Korea. I lived there for a bit over a decade. I left in February of 2016, so it’s been almost 2 years in Canada now.

Leaving was one of the hardest decisions I’ve ever made. I had a great group of friends, went paddleboarding all the time at the beach down the road from my house, had the best job I’ll ever have in my entire life and was a huge fan of a ton of stuff Korea (the food, how fast you can get things done, etc.).

It was also the best decision I’ve ever made. There are, however a number of disadvantages to living in Canada, including:

  • Far, far, far less disposable income
  • Paying ridiculous amounts of $$$ for basic services and eating out
  • It’s much harder to make friends (everyone has old friends from way, way back)
  • Extremely high taxes
  • Did I mention how expensive it is yet?

However, I’m much happier. And although I don’t regret staying in Korea for 10 years, the reality of moving back was easier than I perhaps thought it would be.

Here’s what I’ve been doing for the past 2 years.

Thing #1: Movie Industry

I kind of fell into a high-paying job, working as a first aid attendant/snack table guru (they’re combined into 1 job) in the film industry. I did this by taking a 2-week first aid course that cost around $1000, and then buying a first aid kit for a few hundred bucks.

It’s kind of a cool job! I’ve met lots of interesting (famous, and not) people. I’ve seen the behind the scenes of how movies and TV shows are made. I’ve been to so many amazing places around greater Vancouver. The money saved has been fabulous because they feed you three meals a day, every day. You never pay for parking. You don’t really have to pay for anything yourself, ever. And I worked so much that it was impossible to spend any of the money I was making.

The only real negative is that you kind of have to sell your soul to do it. The hours are extremely long, a normal day is 12-13 hours, and sometimes it’s up to 15 or 16. The hours are also variable, which means that it’s impossible to plan any sort of social activity around them. One week is nights. The next weeks is days. The next week is 1/2 days, 1/2 nights.

I’m happy that I did this because it gave me some serious financial stability. I ended up using almost none of the savings I had set aside for my first couple years in Canada. I also worked enough days to be able to join one of the unions and get extended health benefits.

Thing #2: Working for Myself, Online

The online thing. I have various websites and self-published books. I’ve been working on it pretty casually since I got back to Canada, instead focusing more on the movie industry thing.

But I’ve made the decision to work on this full-time for at least the next year and see what can happen with it.

Advice to Myself, Before Leaving Korea

Honestly, I was a bit terrified to leave Korea. Life was easy there. I knew that this would probably not be the case in Canada.

Before I left, I wrote a book “Life After ESL: Foreign Teachers Returning Home” based on a questionnaire and interviews I did with almost 50 teachers who’d done the same thing. I compiled the results and came up with some advice for myself, as well as other teachers in the same situation.

Here are some of the things I said.

#1: Get Yourself a Large Pool of Money

Many of the people surveyed mentioned that you’ll need more money than you think when returning to your home country. Although I did find a well-paying job after a few months, I did end up spending a lot of money moving around, buying a car, damage deposit for an apartment, etc., etc. It really added up.

The money thing didn’t really stress me out though, because I had set aside far more money than I was actually spending. It honestly would have been terrifying if I had only had a few thousand in the bank, especially when living in Vancouver where rent is kind of ridiculous. Avoid this at all costs.

#2: Humility: Be Willing to Start at the Bottom

People in the survey mentioned the need to humble yourself and start at the bottom. This was my experience in the film industry. My first job was working at a background performer for minimum wage. I then worked as a production assistant (also for minimum wage), until I got my very well-paying job as a first aid attendant.

It was a tough few months, especially after having such a great job in Korea. But, having a good attitude about it was what actually got me my break into the better job. This is what happens to most production assistants—the good ones get a “lucky” break and end up working in another department. The luck is actually a positive, helpful attitude and attention to detail.

#3: Flexibility: You Need Lots of It!

People mentioned the need for geographic, and work flexibility. It’s good to have a plan, but it’s also a good thing to be open-minded and look for opportunities outside of that.

I originally moved to Vancouver Island, and thought I was going to stay there for at least a few years. I ended up staying only a couple of months before moving to Vancouver. It was an excellent decision in terms of work, and social opportunities.

I planned on doing the online thing full-time in Canada from the start. But I ended up doing something else for a couple of years in order to gain some financial stability. I’m happy that I did it, and I now feel like I’m doing the online thing from a much better place.

#4: Use your Time Abroad Well

This advice was more from me, than the people I surveyed. On this blog, I’ve talked numerous times about using your time abroad well. By that, I mean don’t waste your time. Decide what your longer-term plan is and work towards it.

If you want to be an ESL teacher, get qualified. Maybe you want to be a teacher in the public system back home—see if you can get qualified while still abroad. If you want to work for yourself online, get your side-gig going on. Maybe you want to change careers—see if you can do an MA while still working as an ESL teacher. That way, when you return home, you can hit the ground running instead of burning up a ton of money going back to school.

Whatever it is, figure it out and take some steps towards that.

The last couple of years in Korea were busy ones. I wrote around 15 books that I self-published on Amazon. I also started around five websites. Those things I did are still earning me money today. And I’m now working on improving the websites and adding more books.

It would have been tough to start at ground zero, once moving to Canada. The first couple of years, and especially the first few months were very busy. It kind of felt like I spent months mostly on the phone, with various government agencies trying to do a million and one things. I didn’t end up spending as much time working on the books and websites as I thought I would.

Check out Life After ESL

Life After ESL: Foreign Teachers Returning Home has a ton of solid information. Looking back on it after my two years in Canada, I realize even more how true this really is.

If you’re thinking about returning to your home country, but are scared, and unsure of how things will go, check out the book. It’ll help you through the process, guaranteed. If it doesn’t, send me an email and I’ll PayPal you your money back.

You can check it out on Amazon:

Tartine Coming to Seoul

Recent Blog Posts - Mon, 2018-01-15 11:49

Along with beer and coffee, bakeries in Korea have come a long way. Long-time expats will inevitably have a bakery story, featuring some half-baked aberration that still haunts their dreams. Some folks, perhaps scarred by a congealed-cheese-and-cold-hot-dog danish, or layer cake topped with tomatoes, find it hard to believe that the average bakery today is light-years distant from the bakeries of yore, but if you haven’t ventured into to bakery for a while, it could be time for a re-visit.

On that note, I was cheered by this bit of news reported by San Francisco-based Eater Magazine that one of the Bay City’s most famous bakeries, Tartine, will be opening a Seoul Branch in late January in Seoul’s Hannam District. The Seoul branch will be the very first overseas branch of Tartine, which the New York Times food critic Mark Bittman once called his “favorite bakery in the United States”.

This Busan resident will be sure to second-guess his decision to settle outside the capital drop by Tartine on his next Seoul visit.
