Hey everyone!

So, I got...probably the best news of my life this afternoon!

Back in October, I sent off my application to the JET Programme (Which places people from English speaking countries all over Japan to teach English and be cultural exchange!). 3 months later, I had to go all the way to London to do my interview. Insane nerves and panic! I thought I biffed it!!

Today, ANOTHER 3 months later, I got the e-mail.

"It is our great pleasure to inform you that you have been successfully shortlisted for the position of Assistant Language Teacher (ALT) on the 2020 JET Programme with the departure date from the UK scheduled for Saturday 12th September 2020."

So in 5 months, I'm gonna be upping sticks and moving to Japan to LITERALLY do my DREAM JOB.

To say I am excited is...understated.

Massive congrats! I've started to think about applying after my recent (and first) Japan trip and would love to hear your experiences once you get up and going out there. Do you know whereabouts you'll be working yet?

Hopefully in 5 months the current situation will have at least stabilized all over the world.

Congrats! You should probably check out this comic if you haven't already. Seem like it might be relevant.
