As of one week ago, I have been offered- and I accepted- a position teaching English to young children in Shanghai. I have an extensive background in working with children so working with them will be familiar to me- always a good start!

Now originally I am from MN, and upon college graduation, moved out to Los Angeles, CA on my own. So I am somewhat familiar with change and moving... but across the world?! Well... we will see. It still hasn't quite sunk in for me that I am leaving, but in the meantime am feeling many different things at once:

I leave in exactly 40 days. Still lots to do and hopefully this will all sink in sooner rather than later....

** Any advice, tips of what to bring/ see/ do/ expect in Shanghai, or even China would be greatly appreciated! **
