Exciting news and new beginnings

I don't know how many of you follow me on twitter, but you might see the odd mentions of JES sometimes, likewise suggestions of moving. I wasn't sure if I wanted to write about it on here before now, simply because things were still so undecided, but now more is planned and I feel like I can actually do a decent post about it !

Next year I'll be moving to Japan.

It could be as early as March or as late as July depending on which pos
ition I decide to take up.

I have a meeting/interview with the school I'll be going to in Sendai in August while I'm on holiday, but I could be placed in one of several locations throughout Tohoku, their schools are located in Aomori, Goshogawara, Akita, Kitakami, Furukawa, Ishinomaki, Sendai, F
ukushima, Koriyama, Shirakawa, Aiizu, Niigata, Joetsu, Yamagata and Yonezawa. My Visa will be processed over Christmas too!

The company is small as far as Eikaiwa go, but after hunting for months for information on various employers, they came out as one of the best, treating staff much better than larger organisations such as BERLITZ and ECC. So far from my emails back and forth with them, they seem better than I could have hoped. I have a reason to be nervous about my holiday too now, I'll take the Shinkansen down to Sendai from Hirosaki on Thursday 2nd of August and have my interview! I might go to find little hearts while I'm down there, depends how it goes for time seeing as it's a 2 hour train ride (Thank god for my Japan Rail pass, it's going to really get a workout!).

I invested in a smart suit dress the other day, my first piece of seriously smart clothing! I feel so grown up haha! I'm now working on slowly downsizing my things, and it feels really odd to have to throw out things I would have kept before, simply because I know there won't be any point in taking them with me.

It's sad but exciting at the same time.

A new beginning.

Mt Iwaki. Located in western Aomori. This might be my view!

It's been a while since I've done a gets post! But here are some things I've picked up over the last few months.

LONG omega vest top.
H&M circle glasses.
Mejibray hair scrunchie.
Mejibray lighter.
Various fliers and some new cheki!

Juu went over to Japan last month, and she was kind enough to bring me back the Mejibray merch, fliers, and a cheki of Yuuya from Para:noir. The other cheki I bid from Auok/Mbok and a private auction! Nothing much but just a quick update from me. I'll be heading out to get a new tattoo and pick some more bits up for my holiday tomorrow, so I'll be sure to update more on that then!
