I've been saying, "I want to go to Japan and teach English" since I was in high school. Now after many applications I've been hired by Interac to do so and will be leaving mid-August.
It's only a seven month contract, but who knows? I may sign another one, decide to visit other countries, etc - I'm gonna leave my options open.
So now I just have to pack & store my stuff staying behind, save up enough for expenses and a plane ticket, try and finish as much wing-work as I can before I leave, etc...
Keep moving forward, however that looks like for you,
