Hello my name is Michael and this is my first Hello!s blog. I arrived at the start of this month, although I also lived here from 2009 to 2011. Many people have been asking me where I was and what I was doing for the last five years. My answer is that I went back to my hometown in America. I am from Minneapolis, Minnesota. My parents and two brothers and two sisters all live there now. While I was there I worked for a bus company. That surprises many people. I wanted to teach, but getting a teaching job is sometimes difficult. So I started driving a bus. I learned to drive many different buses and bus routes over the years. For two years I changed my job to working in the company office. I would watch all the buses on the computer and listen to the drivers on the radio, and then take care of any problems. I was often alone in the office late at night, and sometimes very strange problems would occur. Maybe I will post another blog with some funny bus stories, but for now I have to focus on being a teacher again! Thanks for reading!
