I can't wait to try the cuisine, cross continents and start my adult life in a place so rich in culture and human history. Though I never planned to work in education (or with kids), I'm so curious to see if I enjoy teaching. I have to admit I find the idea of teaching a group of 5-year-olds a foreign language a thousand times scarier than moving to a new country. But the fear is a fuel and I've been stationary for far too long. Nearly eight months of living at home being underemployed has gotten me more than ready to start this adventure. The goodbyes have been hard, but I find great comfort knowing they just mean "see you later."
Staying in Touch
I plan on regularly updating this blog, so this will probably be the best way to keep up with us. I'll be posting pictures here and on Facebook and Instagram (@emilygherrington). I have an iPhone, so I'll be able to text and FaceTime with other iPhoners through iMessage. If you don't have iMessage, download either Viber or Whatsapp and we can text. My email address is email@example.com, and I know I'll be checking that all the time as well. Skype: @emilyherrington. Don't be a stranger!
