That’s me!

Hey, I’m Megan! I’m a 29 year-old (holy crap, this is the last year of my 20s), ex-pat living in Japan trying to find my footing in this crazy thing we call life.  I started this blog to detail that process and provide support to others who feel the same way.

The basics:

– I’m an English teacher living in Kumamoto, Japan
– Writing is my passion
– I enjoy visiting shrines and temples on my days off
– うさぎが大好きだよ。 (That’s very important!)

I’m just your average girl, nothing over-the-top or extravagant.  I usually wear jeans and a t-shirt and leave the make-up to the experts.  I like to spend my weekends in my jim jams (PJs) watching movies or exploring this beautiful place I live in.  I’m a huge nerd with a huge list of loves.  (Too many!)

I write about typical things every 29 year-old goes through, with a spin.  Since I’m also living abroad, it brings up a whole different list of challenges.

I also like to write creatively, quite frequently, so you can expect Daily Prompts and other random posts that are written with a creative flair.  I have a big dream and I’m using this blog to help me get one step closer.

I live in Kumamoto City, Japan.  I survived the earthquake of 2016, with a few bumps and bruises along the way.  I’ll bring up PTSD from my experiences and how to handle natural disasters as well.  And I’ll thrown in a little Kumamon along the way too.

So join me on this crazy ride, we can enjoy it together!

    Hi Megan, I am Tarun from India. I am also interested in teaching English in Japan. Although i am a non native speaker, I have near native fluency and can communicate well.
    I contacted AEON about my eligibility and they told me that I was eligible to apply as I have completed all my school and bachelor degree (in computer science) in English language medium.

    I have never taught before, I am a fresh graduate. I am so nervous as I will be interviewed online via skype since I am from India and they don’t have any interview venues in India.

    I am worried about the lesson plan thing as I have no idea about it. I also asked AEON if i a TEFL certificate is necessary to apply. They said it was not necessary but I am thinking of pursuing it anyways before applying as I will know how to make a good lesson plan and other things which will be useful and helpful to me during the interview process.

    Please share any suggestions how to crack this interview especially the Skype one.
    I have read your posts here about AEON but still need your help. Should i just make a lesson plan with the help of online resources or take a TEFL course first.
