freaking out

oh god I am so freaking out right now.

Everyone is lovely and helpful and my little place is lovely too but I think rural without an expat community was a mistake.  Teaching the kids is hard and there is no direction to work a lesson plan on.  I feel nervous sick all the time.  Kahurangi doesn't even want to go outside.

I haven't got internet at home yet but when I do I will catch up with all your comments and blogs.

I know, I just have to suck it up.

I know you both are totally outside of your comfort zone but be brave! It's quite alright to feel scared and lost but having read so much of your stuff over the past year, I know you will pull through! Be like Jet Li: Fearless! *hugs for both of you*

It'll take some time..... Buck up. And I'm sure the students are grateful for whatever you have in stow for them.

moving and immersing yourself in a new culture can be quite a shock, but i know you will perservere. I can certainly sympathize though, and even though you might be freaking out now, just stick with it and you will come to think of Korea as your second home. I felt the same way about Shanghai when I moved there, but after a year I really grew to love the place. And I hated it the first 6 months I was there too .... so you never know. Good luck!

Good advice from Mark. Are you allowed to devise your own lesson plan? It may make it a little more comfortable. And likewise with peachey, the students must be so grateful. *hugs* Jaine. Take Care of yourself and Kahurangi.

Keep your chin up things will fall into place. The kids will be fine they are really lucky having you teaching them. Lesson plan wise just do your own thing then you will feel .more confident and in control. Everything will be ok.
