So anyway, I’m not going to Japan.
Why not I hear the cry? Well I’ve been asked to represent my country before…and in both cases I managed not to swear during the interview…yes I swore.
They were asking me about the Mexican Street Children and I was explaining how hard it was to get through to some of the slder kids and said, ‘As far as they were concerned we were rich westerners why the fuck should the care what we said’ So I’m not going to Japan next year. So in between writing personal evaluations and lesson plans this morning I tried to figure out what I should do next year; of course there is always the possibility that I may teach in Thailand or China or one of the other countris I’ve applied to. Do I try to get a TEFL qualification? Do I want to get my NQT status? I have no idea what I want to do exactly…run a bookshop eventually I think is the plan. Get published would be good…don’t have enough life experience for my sorts of books. I’d like to get the website working better too.
What do I do now that my plans have gone out of the window?
