And the winner is…

If you haven’t read the previous post where I talk about my possible new homes, you can click here to get caught up.


Now, I’m sorry it took me two days to get around to writing this post
A new home is a big thing to wrap one’s mind around
Going to a new, completely unknown place is thrilling and scary all at the same time
On the other hand, neither Tokyo or Nagoya is all that terrifying…
You see, my new home for three months will have a big old festival
And beautiful autumn leaves


Did you guess?


My new home will be…

Yep, next month I will be moving to Nagoya for three months!

Guess it will be time for me to get one of these cups!

I wonder what living in Nagoya will be like? What will my apartment be like (besides matchbox size)? Will it have a pretty view? What fun things will I discover when I have time off? Will I have any time off? What will classes be like? What will my students be like? Will I be able find green space easily? Will I melt in my work attire? Will the festivals be as amazing as I hope?

I have many questions! All will be answered in due time, and not knowing is half the fun sometimes!

Hooray! I was kinda pullin' for Nagoya. Just 'cause the restaurant has special memories and a special place in my heart. But I suppose that's a silly reason! Ultimately, I just wanted you to go where God would have you go. Thank You, Lord, for answers and provision!

Congratulations! I had no idea you had this blog, otherwise I would have read sooner. I'm backreading and so happy for your Japanese adventures.

I found a post I had not commented on! I hope you see this post, as it reminds me of our recent talk about your feelings about Nagoya. Maybe rereading your post will stir a bit of excitement for old Nagoya???
