Hi there. My name is Carolyn, but in Japan I’ll go by Tara-san. In two months, I’m moving to Japan to teach in the Japan Exchange and Teaching (JET) program.
My feelings about this can be summed up in one concise word: Eeeeee!!
Specifically, I’ll be going to Fukuoka Prefecture, on the island of Kyushu. I don’t have any more specifics than that, but I’ll update the blog as I learn more.
The meaning of this blog is threefold:
1. To document my JET experience.
2. To serve as a resource for future JETs.
3. To update my family and friends on my goings-on, and share my Japan life with them.
I would end this entry with a gleeful cry of “welcome” or “let’s go” or “onward” in Japanese, but I can’t figure out how to say any of them. 😛 So I’ll end with one of my favorite silly English catchphrases.
Never give up, never surrender!
