I received my Sri Lankan entry Visa this week, once I’m there I will have to apply for my residence permit. It’s an exciting step, but getting that Visa made this whole experience feel so much more real.
I’ve known for many months now that I’ll be headed overseas to teach on a Fulbright, but getting my Visa was one of those moments that made me stop and think, wow this is actually happening. I remember a similar feeling when I got my Chinese Visa, its a mixture of excitement, fear (mostly of the unknown), questioning (am I ready for this?).
The next nine months should prove to be some of the most interesting of my life, and I know that this last month at home will fly by.
