Hey guess what?
I got the Fulbright.
I’M GOING TO CHINA! FINALLY! Two years in the making and I’m finally going! That is the whole purpose I started this blog! And now it’s finally coming true! WOOOOO (girl)!
Okay. Excitement. Nervousness. Fear. Excitement again. Panic. Intrigue. More panic. Stress. Disbelief….Excitement. I have no idea what lies on the other end. That’s why I’ll begin by researching the heck out of Macau. I’m going to map out that entire country. And then when I get there, it will be a whole new playing field!
Anyways, the point of this post was to announce that I finally did it. I poured my heart and soul into this decision. I fought long and hard with doubt, fear, and ideas of what’s actually possible. The universe answered: anything.
Like I said in an earlier post, if you put your mind towards something and you work hard for it, you can do it. I will bring this attitude with me across the globe because if I believe, so will my students. Let’s not forget it is my students – past and future – who have brought me to this point.
