This is the message and picture I got from Paul today while on my way home from a very rainy day of work. I knew exactly what he meant…the IT.
My paperwork from Japan. I have to be honest…I kind of just stared at the package before hugging it and running upstairs like a child on Christmas morning. I am not sure if that’s charming…or pathetic 🙂
I will go with charming! My packet included a letter from the headmaster’s secretary, my contract, our visa applications, heath insurance information and profile sheet, and something about a physical (yuck). Those are the official items.
She also included a Nagoya InfoGuide, March and April’s Nagoya International Community Center Calendar…which is a monthly published magazine with local events, articles, coupons, community bulletin boards, tips, etc.
I also got the NIS (Nagoya International School–please just memorize NIS…) Connections quarter magazine that has load of information for alumni, supporters, and parents…it gives a great snapshot to last spring and this past winter.
What started out as a dismal rainy Monday…ended much brighter! The yummy fruit sangria I made might have also helped 🙂
Oh, and I learned some new words this weekend.
Hai means yes…
Arigatō means thank you…
