JET Program (Round 2)

“Congratulations! It is our great pleasure to inform you that you have successfully passed the second stage of the screening process for the 2010 Japan Exchange and Teaching (JET) Program.” That’s what I saw when I opened my e-mail this past Thursday!

I am officially accepted into the JET Program! Come July 31st, I will be on a plane heading to Japan. Now, I’m not sure yet where in Japan I’ll be (find that out in May), but I’m in! 

Looks like I get to keep this blog and continue updating when in Japan.

Now, just need to graduate!

JET Program

やった (Hooray)!!

I recently received notification that I have an interview with the JET Program. I am so excited!!!

Ever since I received the notice, I’ve been scouring the internet for blog, vlogs (like a video blog), and info on the JET Program. In case you are unfamiliar with the program, check out this website OR this one to learn more about it.

So, I’ve begun my last semester and I’m praying that I will end up in Japan by the end of this summer. Honestly, I wouldn’t mind being anywhere in the world (preferably outside the U.S. though for a little bit), but I imagine living in Japan will be easier than living in a country I’ve never been. I understand the culture shock and language  I’ll experience in Japan.

However, until February 18th (the day of my interview), I will be a player in the waiting game. AND THEN, after the interview I have to wait until April for notification. So much waiting!!
