Beijing (how I got here)

Back in 2009 I was looking for a job…there was only one problem.  It was the worst time in history since The Depression, to be looking for a job.  Then I got an offer to teach English in Korea and the rest is history.


Since then I’ve lived and worked in Korea, Thailand, Taiwan, Japan, Saudi Arabia and China.  It’s been an awesome journey for sure but not with out bad times.  It’s no secret teaching overseas can be tough,  horrible bosses,  dishonest schools and loud class rooms can be part of the job.  But I wouldn’t trade it for any high paying gig in the states.  I’ve gotten to see, do and experience so much, from the Buddhist temples of Bangkok to Mount Fuji of Japan…how do you put a price on that? Because if its one thing I’ve learned its this, “We only get so much time.”  It seems like we get a long life…but the truth is our lives are short.




Some people back home think I’m nuts to be living in Asia.  And hey…maybe I am a little nuts but I get moments like the ones you see above and think…I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Thanks for reading guys.  I just want to post this quick intro.  Peace.


Ace here….I’m in Beijing now and just hanging, drinking some tea (The tea is amazing here!).  Anyway, I just started this new blog today.  I’ve got a Patreon page that I write on a regular basis but…word press looks so much better and I really wanted a central place where I could showcase my youtube, writing and photos.   Also I’d like to have some guest writers.  If you live in Asia or travel to Asia or you’re into Japanese culture like me then hit me up!

Today, was a pretty chill day, I woke up made some coffee and checked my twitter as usual (@ace_wall_73).  I follow content creators in Japan and Asia.  Typically they are very active on twitter so there’s never a dull moment.   A few of the people I follow have blogs which is why I’m writing this now.  I’ve been active on youtube for more than a few years now and I’d like to move into writing as well as creating videos.
