Helper Description:
Szia...my name is Joseph. I am currently in Budapest, and it is my aim to stay here in Hungary, but who knows...life does as it pleases. I am 47 years old, the father of two amazing people, a daughter and a son that I miss so much, as they are in California. When I joined Helpx I was still in California as well, wondering how and when I would make it back here to Hungary. I first came here back in 2010 on the New Year's Eve of 2011, after which I returned three more times, staying months at a time. Simply put, I fell in love with Hungary...with all of it. I rode my bike everywhere, under the Hungary Sky, who was a constant companion. I am Czech by descent, but I thought surely I must have some Hungarian blood pulsing through my veins...I felt such a natural attachment here...such a pull. Now that I have returned to Hungary once again, after more than four years have passed, I feel not entirely the same. Perhaps the time has changed me a bit, or...could it be that life in Budapest is not like life in Szolnok or other smaller cities and towns...perhaps. Well now that I am here, my challenge is to make it so, that I could remain here. I have been seeking employment, but as I am a 'beginner' regarding the Hungarian language, and have only my native English, it has been most difficult to say the least. Regarding my expertise...there is no border. I have a lifetime of real work experience. To put it simply, my dad handed me a shovel as soon as I could walk. I am intelligent, organized, detail oriented, determined, self assured, straightforward, reasonable, considerate, fun, energetic, and very personable. I am passionate about people and life. I love the outdoors...to walk/hike/run, swim and bike. I am a perfectionist and a lover. I endeavor to balance the perfectionist, but as for the lover...this is me and it will not change. I need a place where I can breathe, be free, be happy and at peace.
