Departing Tomorrow! Bye Bye USA.
Rarely in life do things go exactly as anticipated. Planning my semester in China was no exception!
I have been eagerly awaiting my visa as my expected start date in Nanchang quickly approached. This was the last piece to the puzzle that allowed me to leave the USA and begin teaching in China. Fortunately, my visa was returned 3 days before the expected departure.
With little time remaining I booked a flight, packed a bag (or two), and said good bye to my cat. Twelve hours from now I'll begin my journey and be saying goodbye to Atlanta. I expect to feel the excitement once the stress of a last minute pack has dissipated.
I'm looking forward to the unexpected and ready to get this adventure started!
