I have officially finished and graduated from my TEFL course and am doing the final preparations for going over to Japan to start working. I had gotten a phone call from Interac yesterday about my placement position (it'll be in Gifu; a rural area in the middle of Japan; at least it's not super cold), and for the first time I feel a little mixed about it:
I have so many friends I need to say bye (for the time being)
I'm excited to see my special someone and give my presents to (which I will prepare the second one this week)
I'm gonna miss my mom
I'm gonna miss my mom's cooking
I won't be able to shop easily for shoes (but everything else will have my kind of style)
etc. . .
I'll keep reading the emails they gave me regarding the position, and stay excited about what to prepare. I have my first present which I think is pretty cool, but I still need to prepare my second one a little bit more in detail.
