That sounds rather dramatic, doesn't it? It's nothing bad though, just an update about my personal life that I thought might be interesting to share.
A while ago I mentioned my struggle to get a job and joked about shipping myself off to Japan.
Well... about that... the joke sort of became... a reality.
Since August of last year (2013), I have been living and working in Osaka, Japan! I am an Assistant Language Teacher (if you know the JET Programme, that's pretty much what I'm doing) for Elementary School. Hurrah! It's pretty exciting. And I can't believe it's almost been a year already.
What's great about my job, however, (other than my awesome kids) is that I am left with a lot of freetime between classes. I mean hours of freetime even after I finish making lesson plans and preparing materials for upcoming classes. And, I am allowed to read during this freetime (although I only realized it was okay, recentely).
My Kindle and I have become best friends to say the least, and this blog has become very active!
It feels great to have time to read again.
P.S. If you guys ever have any questions about Japan, feel free to ask! I may not have all the answers, but I can try.
