Today was my last day of classroom training at the Foreign Service Institute. Next week I have two consultations in Washington, then I will go to LA for additional consultations on my way to China.
All of these plans are contingent on my China visa coming through. Still no word on that. I don’t want to think about making changes to my plans if the visa doesn’t come through in time.
In any event, it’s nice to think that I am progressing through the training process, and moving forward on the road of this new career. It would be easy to get stressed out over the details, and forget that I am beginning a new adventure, one that I prepared for and looked forward to for such a long time. This is the life that I wanted, and now that I have it, I should embrace the positive aspects of it. And there are many positive things about this experience.
