The Kiosk Diaries

October 5, 2012

My friend M works in a tobacco stand; this is the view from where she sits each day.  M and I are going to collaborate on a photo project for this blog; I provide the camera, she provides ideas. Together we’re going to take a fresh look at our small town lives.

“I have a degree in early childhood education, and my dream is to be a preschool teacher. I work eight hours a day, with no days off. I’m supporting my parents.  The best part of my job is that I’ve met a lot of people that I would never have met otherwise. I love Enrique Iglesias. I want to learn English. I want to learn to drive. I want to buy a sewing machine and start my own business adapting clothes with my own cool custom-designs.”

This is the view from my office window.

“I have a degree in comparative literature. I work for an intergovernmental organization and my dream is to be a documentary filmmaker. I work nine hours a day.  I write reports. The best part of my job is that I’ve met a lot of people that I would never have met otherwise.  I miss my family. I want to learn how to play guitar. I want to take aerobics. I want to start a blog.”

    Hi!
    I’m so excited that this blog has started 🙂 Glad to be introduced to M…
    Is there a shortage of open positions for preschool teachers there?

    unfortunately there is a shortage for most jobs… I talked to a city official the other day, and he was complaining that the young people aren’t getting married early enough and that many social problems are caused by that. he told a young teacher, “you need to get married and have kids, or what do you expect? you have to make work for yourself!” hahahah! 🙂
