Preparing to GO!!
It's the final 2 weeks before I start my new adventure. I have the contract, I have the ministry permission to teach there, I have my degree originals ready to pack, I have the 20+ passport pictures for documents there, I have the visa and I have WAY too many things to pack!! My new school doesn't offer shipping, so I have to pack what I want in suitcases. Thank goodness that my parents are gracious enough to store my furniture and books for me. It makes a big difference. So now I have to find a way to fit all my worldly goods that I want to take with me into 4 suitcases and 1 carry-on. I know about rolling the stuff and I know about vacuum seal bags... but I gotta make sure they aren't overweight because that is an additional $100 on top of the $225 for the extra 2 bags. As it is, it will cost me $450 to get those 2 bags over there and I only get reimbursed for $300 so... *sigh* decisions, decisions. Just when you thought that being an international teacher was all about fun and games!! ;) I love what I do though and would recommend it to anyone!
