Sorry for the delay in blog entries, but the past couple of months have been a whirlwind! After 3 weeks in Hofu, I decided that the job and life there was not exactly for me. I hated to make the decision to leave, but after looking back on the events over the past 2 months…..it seems as though it was a pretty good decision after all. While contemplating leaving Hofu, I began to look online for jobs in Okinawa. Because I have been looking for jobs in Okinawa for the past few years and sort of knew the types of jobs that were normally posted. You can imagine my excitement when I saw a job posting for the University of Phoenix that provided SOFA status (Status of Forces Agreement---a visa status that says you are with the military and legally allowed to live here). I have actually never seen a SOFA status job listed for someone without any specific skill set…..and believe me, I’ve been looking for a long time! I contacted The University of Phoenix right away and they said they would be finishing up interviews on March 19th. At this point I had already purchased a ticket to Okinawa for March 18th to visit my friends before returning back to the US. I got into Okinawa on the night of 18th and was interviewing for the position 14 hrs later :))))) I found out 3 days later that I got the job and so here I am..... living in my very own Japanese style apartment, studying Japanese on my own and once again soaking in the Okinawan sunshine!
長い きゅうけい すみません。防府に住んだ事が ３週間 だけ でした。せつめいしにくい ですけど 生活は 良くなかった。３月に 沖縄まで ひこうきの きっぷを 買いました。あの時に 沖縄で めずらしい 仕事が あきに なりました。めんせつ できました！ さいよう しました！ ４月から 沖縄に はたらいて 住めます！ ついさいきんは 私のアパートに 引っ越しまして 車を 買いました。新しい 生活です。沖縄が 大好きですから とても うれしい です。むかしいは 私の夢：沖縄に 住んで はたらいて 日本語を 勉強する。今、それは 夢じゃない。。。。しんじられない です！！！！私は とても LUCKY です.
