JET Results

There will be more. I promise. Likely much more. For now, though, the suspense is over. The results of my JET Hopefulness are in, and...











..... I'm..............




















...accepted!

I assume I'll accept the offer and do Japan for a year starting at the end of July (flying out of Chicago the same weekend as BlogHer, so maybe I can somehow squeeze in a way to meet some I've always wanted to meet), but I will make the final decision soon, meanwhile assuming I'll say yes and starting all the million things to do like renewing my passport, doing the FBI background thingy that I didn't have to do the last time and making all those other little decisions about the small stuff.

After days of hardcore stressful wondering and hoping to the point of almost splitting into pieces, tonight I'll just bask in the joy of what likely lies ahead of me.

I'll be back, soon.
