I'm still in shock at the prospect of moving. For the past week I've walked around with a goofy smile on my face, and every second phrase out of my mouth is "I'm going to Russia". It doesn't feel real, and I doubt it will until I've been there a few months.Fulfilling a long-held dream is not an experience that comes to many people, and I'm over the moon about it.
Sure, there are questions - will my Russian be adequate? Will I function in a different culture? Are my files going to be ready when I apply for the visa? Can I be a good teacher? - but they're at the back of my mind for now. This week, it's just euphoria. I'm engrossed in Russia and my future there.
Surely this will wear off at the first obstacle or simply with time, but in the meantime...
I'M GOING TO RUSSIA!!!
