Cold feet whilst getting ready for the big move

In my preparation for moving to Japan I have decided to set up this blog to document my time away. I thought this would be a good way for friends and family to check in on me, rather than writing out a million emails. 

I have exactly one week left, so I am planning on relaxing, packing and saying goodbye. Although I have been somewhat preparing for this since November last year, it still feels completely surreal, and I don't think it will sink in until I get there.

These are my fears about doing JET and moving to Japan:
-I have never lived outside of England
-This is my first proper 9-5 style job (quite embarrassing to admit to as I'm almost 25)
-Japan is VERY different
-I will be living alone for the first time
-I will living somewhere somewhat 'rural' - (I'm from London)

All these together seem pretty daunting, but there's a hell of a lot to look forward to as well; I think I should just take it one day at a time, and all should be fine.

I put so much time and nonsense in this blog. Thank you for commenting, even if it's trolling, it makes me feel special.
