Starting January of 2017, which happens to be the beginning of the Year of the Rooster, I (Michelle) made the biggest leap of faith in my life by moving across the globe to work as an English teacher in Chiba, Japan. It hasn’t always been easy starting out, but little by little I’m getting better at my job and being an independent adult. I often think of home and how I wish I could be with everyone I knew back in the United States, but the support of my fantastic family and home church has been great inspiration.

So, this blog is for me to update all of the people back home about what I’ve been doing and what life in Japan is like. I’ve always loved writing, but I’m also a die-hard procrastinator, so we’ll see just how well I’ll be able to keep this in order. Anyways, thank you for checking it out and don’t hesitate to email me if you want to ask me anything. 🙂
