What I’m doing now

Last Update: 8 May 2017


I’m in Fanling, Hong Kong. Since I got back here on 14/3, I’ve met several new people via Meetup and my close friends. I’m struggling which career I should pursue in my next 10 years or so (writer, podcast host, or English teacher).

Along with my daily routine, to think and possibly give me a taste of these three careers, these are what I spend my time doing:

Daily Routine

  • Meet new friends via Meetup
  • Meet my old friends
  • Job hunting
  • Learn Spanish
  • Sell books via Sparktake
  • Borrow and read books about writing, language acquisition
  • Read novel, New American Stories

Writing

  • Search for writing-related entry-level jobs, internships, competitions (Job hunting)
  • Write my short story, rethink why I got stuck in writing other people’s story, while I could produce quality prose in DSE
  • Practise Dvorak on typing.com or other websites
  • Maintain this blog, tylerhhwong

Podcast Host

  • Produce my first-ever radio drama (Fame X Friends) and post it
  • Finalise the schedule of the podcast and the direction
  • Research topics

English teacher

  • Practise for IELTS (8.5/9)
  • Tutor students

These are my main priorities right now. 


Clearing up my foggy mind

At first glance, I mostly want to be an English writer because I created lots of tasks about it.

On the other hand, being a podcast host can also let me use English also because I can write blog posts to promotes my channel. And it will broaden my horizons in researching topics. It matches my personality of liking to talk as well.

Perhaps, I still want to be an English teacher. The prerequisite of a teacher is only too high that I could do much about it.

Anyhow, I shall grasp the chance of getting the English Language/ Education degree, (1) to practice my English, and (2) to contemplate what my next 10 years should be, and (3) to open up more opportunities.


I am CURRENTLY open to considering new opportunities, as I highly value novelty, spontaneity, and growth. However, I aspire to stick to my priorities 90% of the time. As a result, I will say no to the majority of requests that come my way now.

If my activities or priorities happen to change, I’ll update this page to reflect those changes. Next review is scheduled on 8 June 2017.
