Welcome to my blog!

My name is Anita and I am a current Assistant Language Teacher (ALT) from the JET programme. I am placed in Shima, Mie (pronounced mi-eh) and I teach at 2 Senior High Schools. One of them is a somewhat low-level high school and the other is a marine technical high school. I have to take a ferry to get there!

This is my first year here* and I still can’t believe that I’m here. It really has been my dream to teach and live in Japan since I was 15. Although, I had many doubts that stopped me several times like earthquakes, tsunamis, and other natural disasters but I am SO glad I am here now.

My primary purpose of these entries is to have a record of all my awesome adventures that I will have here so that I can remember them when I go back to Canada. They may be boring and weird sometimes, but you are welcome to read them!

I hope you enjoy going on this journey with me! =D

*Well, I’m in my second year now, but I still can’t believe I’m here.
