Departure

Hello Lovelies!

 

Tomorrow is the day.

I have Procrastinated and Procrastinated in writing a post for a very long time.

I’m sorry!

I have SO MUCH to tell you!

But for now, I am leaving tomorrow.

Today I have packed up my life, cried, hugged, and nothing seems real.

I am so emotional, and so ready, and so not ready.

This past month I have experienced everything so differently, I have felt things so much more than usual.

A sentence, a look, a pause, and I’ll start crying.

I’ve seen the extravagant love that I recieve day after day, and the support and the huge amount of caring that I’m surrounded by.

I will miss them.

I will miss them terribly.

I will miss them so much hit’s hard to breathe. 

Today is emotional.

Today is another step forward to changing.

I will be posting again, and it shan’t be sparce anymore.

(Raise your hand if you still use “Shan’t” Anyone?         okay.)

I’ve just been taking in everything.

Saying goodbye, and learning how to say hello.

 

 

 

This is me right now.

Well this is what I’ve been trying so hard to do.

 Today I’m taking everything in.

I’m going for the change!


Much love,

Where in the world is Jessie going to be? Part Third times the charm

Hello Lovelies!

So, here’s the deal.

I went on a trip and had to make some blog posts.

So I made them.

While I was still on the road.

They were finished.

Turns out, that this iPad of mine does NOT function well without wifi.

And it saved none of it.

So, My initial reaction was:

And then go into fetal position and cry for a couple of days.

 

😦

 

Let me tell you guys. 

Transitions are hard.

And lame (sometimes)

 

But no more! 

 

For I shall figure this iPad and this transition out!

it may take a little while, and be depressed at all of the fails I’ve done, but I SHALL PREVAIL!

 

 

And you guys, I have BIG NEWS.

 

DID YOU WANT TO FINALLY KNOW WHERE I AM GOING?


I HAVE SUCCESSFULLY COMPLETED IN CHOOSING THE COUNTRY THAT I SHALL RESIDE IN.

 

DRUM ROLL PLEASE

 

 

 

 

 

 

Are you drumming the roll?

I don’t think you are.

It’s okay.

I can wait.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

OKAY.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I AM GOING TO:

 

 

 

YUP.

It’s officially official.

I know what you’re thinking.

“FINALLY.

SOMETHING THAT IS OFFICIAL.

ABOUT TIME THERE JESSIE.

I WAS STARTING TO GET REAL SICK AND TIRED OF THIS I DON’T KNOW BUISNESS.”

 

I feel ya man.

But now I can tell you that I am 110% sure that I am going to Taiwan as my foreign exchange.

Breaking the news to Australia was actually not as bad I a thought it would be.

Their whole attitude was kind of stand-offish and I don’t care about you really at all.

While Taiwan’s was wonderful and kind and welcoming and more than willing to assist in any way possible.

 

How crazy is this?

 

Taiwan wasn’t even on my radar, yet here I am, MOVING TO TAIWAN.

TAIPEI IS A HUMONGO CITY.

 WILL BE IN A CITY.

*internal screaming*

If I would of chosen Australia, it would have been a itty bitty town of less than 3,000 people that is over an hour away from the next City.

 

IS SHALL BE GOING TO COLLEGE IN TAIWAN

Even though I’m not even graduated yet here in ‘Murica.

It’s turning out that I go to college, then come back to here graduate high school.

They told me what school I’m going to, and I got to Google Map it and walk around the Taipei streets like I will in a couple weeks! Only this time was virtual and not even the real thing.

BUT STILL.

PRETTY AWESOME NONETHELESS.

 

Taiwan has given me a time frame in which it would be best if I could arrive.

(Aren’t they wonderfully effecient?)

August 22nd-27th is the preferred time, but they’re pretty flexible 🙂

(How nice)

 

 And apparently The Rotary club is HUGE and totally respected over there.

 

So many bonuses.

 

So many beautiful bonuses making me want to live there as soon as possible!

 Gah.

 

Much Love~

Where in the world is Jessie going to be? Part: one too many

BIG NEWS YOU GUYS

 

I MAY OR MAY NOT BE GOING TO AUSTRALIA.

 

MOSTLY MAY NOT.

 

I know, I know, you guys are probably all like, 

Where in the world

and all like

“Geez Jessie you told us about one part of the world saying that it’ for SURE, and then you disappear for the next week or so, and show up with a completely different destination that you had in mind!

WAY  TO BE A FEMALE.”

 

And I deserve that. 

Sorta.

That was kind of mean you guys.

 

Remember in my last blog post where I just kind of mentioned that I was looking at going to Taiwan or Spain while Australia was failing in every communication way possible?

 

Well I looked more into it.

 

And to tell you the truth, I’d rather go to Spain, but that’s not going to happen.

And ACTUALLY I had absolutely NO intention of going to Taiwan if I could help it.

 

But whilst in another hiatus with any sort of communication with Australia, I got this strange email from Taiwan!

There was this girl introducing herself and Taiwan, and wanted to know what kind of school I’d like to go to.

 

I of course was flabbergasted and kind of weirded out.

So I sent an email to Macho Man saying, WHAT IS THIS. WHY. WHAT DOES IT MEAN.

And he calmly answered with “It means if Australia falls through, then you’ll have a place to stay.”

So as communication with Australia still not happening, communication with Taiwan was booming.

We were emailing each other back and forth, my questions have been answered, I’m going to a business school, and I even have a link to it!

So, with all of the communications going splendidly, I just wanted to know more about Taiwan.

And as I looked at the videos, and blog posts, and articles, it was all overwhelmingly positive.

 

And I know if you look up anything it’s mostly positive about the place because they want you to go there, but I was looking in the comments section.

and the comments were full of nothing but praises to Taiwan.

About wanting to go back.

Calling it the “Hidden Jewel”

Saying that they wouldn’t trade anything for the experience that they had.

And MUCH MUCH more.

 

So I looked up Australia, and most of the videos were about large cities, and swimming all day every day.

If I were to go to Australia, I would live in a town of 3,000 people with over an hour and a half to the nearest city.

 

If I went to Taiwan, I’d be going to Taipei!

The largest city!

The busiest!

 

And turns out, there is a girl that was a foreign exchange student to Taiwan that lives in a town like 10 minutes away from mine!

So I’m going to meet up with her before I have any final decisions.

 

Basically this explains what’s happened during my absence of posts on this blog.

expressiondifferenceswwords

that’s me at the computer btw

And I’m going to dedicate a blog post to the Pro’s and cons to both places.

So stay tuned for that! 🙂

 

But this is the crazy update right now.

Boy I’ve been changing my mind so much ya’ll must think I’m a mouse in a cheese shop trying to choose his favorite cheese.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now that I think about it the differences aren’t that significant.
