Wow, I don't even know where to begin...
Well, basically I applied to about 3 companies in Japan, all English teaching schools, and I got one!! the process was really fast, but also stressful. I really had to prepare a lot, make a lot of sacrifices, plan for things way in the future... and now it's happening.
Of course my number one priority will be my new job since this is the sole reason for everything coming together. I am actually really excited to have my own students, and teaching English is something I've always wanted to do since I find the art of communication to be such an important and beautiful tool that I hope can offer a change in these peoples lives.
My big move to Tokyo couldn't come any sooner. I have to be there by October already! So now it's crunch time as I have more than enough things to take care of. I sent in my Visa application documents yesterday, so that will take a while to process. And right now I'm apartment hunting which is turning out to not be the most fun thing. But other than all the legal matters and technical formalities I don't want to bore you with, the main thing is how life changing this experience will be!
I also have all of you to thank. My blog friends have shown me so much support and love throughout all these years. I'm also so blessed to have already met a handful of you throughout my travels, and for that I am grateful. I can't even really believe it myself. One of my life goals is finally happening and I couldn't be any happier.
So this is probably the biggest door in my life to open, and I am more than ready for this next chapter to unfold. I know it's not going to be perfect or easy and I'm sure I will have a lot of struggles to grow from, but my passion and appreciation for this wonderful opportunity will be a great driving force for me. I am so excited for this new part of my life to start!!!
Japan, here I come.
