Getting Ready to Leave

It's been a little while since I've written, but things have been going by so fast. I had interviews with both schools I applied to and I've heard back from both of them after that. I think it's looking good for me but the problem is that there's so many people wanting a job in central Taipei and they might not have any open right now.

So I'm just waiting to see if any open up and at the same time I'm looking at open positions outside the city to see if it's reasonable for me to commute.

I officially have my plane ticket! We're leaving Feb 1st- we realized that we might need a few extra days to get all of our stuff packed and clean the apartment out. Our flight leaves just before 1pm. We have a 2 hour layover in Tokyo (woohoo!!!!!!!), and arrive in Taipei around 9-10am eastern time- so 9-10pm in Taipei. Spending the night at Albert's apartment in Jhongli City and then going to Taipei to find an apartment the next day.

I want to end my blog with a plug for my mom's new business: Aqua Soleil Jewelry! She makes bracelets, earrings, and necklaces using semi-precious stones and silver wire wrapping. She made me this bracelet with cherry quartz. I love the stone- it's a gorgeous color. There are only a few items listed on her shop right now but she has so many different stones. You could ask her to customize something for you if you want, and 10% of the proceeds from the store are going to the Michigan Greyhound Connection. So please check it out- I really love her jewelry (and it's not just because she's my mom)! I would make jewelry the exact same way if I were in her shoes.

So that's all for now. I'll post an entry when I land (if not sooner). I'm really excited! If you want a postcard, send me your address!


  1. PS- I got to design the banner and avatar on my mom's website!! :)

  2. I am so relieved that someone from Michigan will be here! Please call me when you come up to Taipei, my cell number 0968 551 814, we can catch dinner when/if I get off work.

  3. :) Of course! I was going to catch you anyways cause I knew you would be there.
