WOW its sooooo crazy only 24 days til the big day arrives!!! i cant believe how close i now am to flying off to Thailand to be a TEFL teacher and quite frankly im not sure what's more daunting; travelling miles from home and all the familiar comforts for 6 months or having to stand in front of a class of school kids and try to get them interested in learning English while desperatley hoping they'll love their teacher and not throw things at me lol
Well with the day drawing ever closer and the sense of being completley overwhelmed with the mad task ive undertaken the butterflies in my stomach are doing overtime and emotions flip from being so excited i could do the crazy lady dance with a massive chesire cat grin on my stupid face to moments of shear panic and the ''oh god oh god what the hell am i doing'' speech in my head pondering have i made the right choice but then i tell myself what would i regret more and i know how bloody cheesy this next bit sounds but honestly when im having those moments of doubt i ask myself ''what feels right in my heart?'' and the answer is always go for it!!! travelling just feels right like its part of who i am. So back to the ridiculous amounts of packing i go, yes my bag will be heavy, yes i will probably have taken everything bar the kitchen sink even though everyone says pack light but heck im a girl and i need stuff lots of stuff : )
On a more practical note i really should brush up on my grammar and finish reading my TEFL for Dummies book before i head out so i have some remote idea of what im doing out there its a great little book and so far has been a big help, i best brush up on all the stuff i studied during my course as well so i dont look as clueless as the students lol
24 days to the start of my big adventure eeeeeeeeeeek!!!!
