My arrival date and location in Japan have been confirmed! I will be teaching at 4 high schools in Toyohashi in the Aichi prefecture in Japan. It is about 2 hours away from Tokyo on the bullet train and 1 hour away from Nagoya on the normal trains.
I will arrive August 12th and will stay with my boyfriend and his mom until the 16th for Obon holiday. On the 16th I will go to Nagoya for training. As of right now I am not sure if I'll be staying in a hotel or will be moving directly into my apartment for the first week of training. I looked up the apartment name they gave me and it seems pretty large and inexpensive for Japanese housing! It has 2 rooms and a separate kitchen! It looks a little old but I think I can deal with that for the extra space and the extra money I can save towards loans and entertainment! However, it has nothing in it! So I am a little worried about moving into it during training week if they require me to do so. I hope I can get my boyfriend to take me to buy some things for it one weekend. XD Please~
I am almost done buying all my essentials for my move to Japan. I bought some business clothes and am getting some products I like that I can't get there (aka American toothpaste, deodorant, Sephora makeup). Pretty soon I'll start packing. I also have to finish my first lesson preparations.
I am both nervous and excited to go to Japan. I will miss people here but I know it will be an awesome adventure!
I will keep drawing and uploading cosplay photos so I am not disappearing
I am still selling things for the next 3 weeks:
