The beginning...

So I'm sitting in my room in Ohio 4 days before I take off on this adventure and I'm wondering what in the world did I get myself into? How could I think this was a good idea? Going to Japan for a year, by myself, to teach little asian kids??? Am I crazy??? As I make preparations and say my goodbyes I'm second guessing every thought of how this was what I needed to do. I always said that I wanted to live overseas for a while and when this opportunity came up I thought that this was it...but now I'm not so sure. I know that God will be there every step of the way, my issue right now is all the people that I love won't be. Sure they will be as close as skype can get us but I'm doing this all on my own which is scary. 

Now don't get my wrong I'm super pumped about this. I know that I am going to grow in ways I never thought possible and hopefully come back better for it but it is just harder then I expected! And so I am trying my best to first get all my junk packed in my bags (which doesn't look good at the moment) and everything prepared for April 15th to start this new adventure!!
