So after all the uncertainty, I really am leaving for China. It's been a mix of anxiety and intense happiness over the past month and a half as I think about what a dream come true this is and anticipate some of the challenges of adjusting to a new role and new place. It's strange to have had such a short span of time to go from being a college student to being a middle school laoshi, but I do feel very lucky to have the opportunity to see a China very different from what my great-grandparents left. I'll be keeping my observations and (mis)adventures on this blog as well as changing the images here once I have some photos of Hunan.
I'm a 3rd year WorldTeach volunteer.
