Today marks the day where I have lived in Japan for 3 months. Time sure does fly by when you are having fun and enjoying new adventures. My time so far has definitely not been without obstacles. Every day is a new adventure. Every day is a new challenge. Every day I learn some more about this new place I am living in. Cheers for all the ALTs for surviving this far.
Up to this point, I have already heard I few friends being asked by their Board of Education (BOE) whether they would like to stay on board for longer. It is amazing when you think about because staying aboard is such a huge deal and technically having only lived in a country for 3-months, it is barely just scratching the survive to getting to know the place. Hypothetically speaking, based on our contract, we have 9 more months til it ends. It is not a long contract at all. One year can go by so quickly and depending on how a person interacts and chooses to explore, one year is not enough to get to know a mysterious place like Japan. Some of my friends have already decided to stay on board for one more year, which seems fair. I have yet to decide at this point. Will keep you posted on my decision later. But anyways, Happy 3-month Anniversary!! Here’s to more good times ahead 🙂
