I had been teaching English in China and let my visa expire, so I actually got deported! I went from a city of 20 million with awesome public transportation, to being physically isolated in a Canadian town. I looked into teaching online, but the salary wasn't anywhere I was used to.
I had started a business in China and used web-site builder and loved that, so I looked into learning the actual code online. I just got so stuck into it; puzzling out the specifics and still being able to use my creativity!
