So… my assumption was correct. Our Uni won’t allow us to transfer our semesters over to someone else. Before, the office said that that’s no problem, we were able to do that… so I have no idea what made them change their minds. Thank god we didn’t book flights or anything before we found this out!
It’s sort of bad on their part though. Either it’s a yes or no from them… don’t be playing us around.
I’m not really too disappointed by it, I half expected it to be honest. I’ll miss the family but I really had no clue what I was going to do once I arrived back home. It might have been difficult to find a job, I wasn’t sure about courses that I wanted to do. Also, with my fiancee only being able to stay for a maximum of 3 months, I’d have to be without him for a couple of months.
So now we have to sort out a new job here….aaggh so I’m not rid of teaching jobs just yet unfortunately.
And anyway I do want to continue my Chinese studies here. I know in Ireland I wouldn’t do a tap of study… so at least I’ll have studied an extra semester here. Oh and MAYBE do the HSK Chinese language test!
I like to think that everything happens for a reason… so hopefully I’ll find a few good reasons why we had to stay longer here.
