I would like to ask you guys for some input, advice, opinions etc.
My dream has always been to move and live in East Asia. So, to prepare for this I made some investements over the years, took language courses and graduated in a field I couldn’t care less about, but I know is in high demand.
I went out of my way to gather recommendational letters from some of my teachers back then (they do ask for that), paid for language certificates and what not. I basically have all the documents I need, but when I started this process the world was a different one. Literally one month after I chatted with my school director about going to Taiwan, and her telling me that I should document all of it, so she can publish it on the schools page as a fun story of an ex-Student, the chinese military aggressions started. Now we have Ukraine. Most people kind of forgot about Taiwan because of that.
So, I genuinely don’t know what to do now. It’s been over a year now since I prepared it all. I want it to be a one and done thing. Not the type of person to just go and return if it turns out like crap. So, I decided to relax for a while and see how things go. Seeing what the world around us turns into I started to think more and more about just doing it. I’d rather die by China than sit in a dungeon for Megumin (it’s not illegal where I currently live, but the western toxicity is god awful which increases that changing).
All I long for is a place where I can engage with people, in a society that’s not so toxic over these matters. It’s horrifying how the west is putting their colonial mindset on yet another easy to frame minority.
You might wonder now and think: “Well, what can I add to this? You seem like you already decided”. Pretty much, but any advice, or opinion from someone who did such a monumental step would be appreciated. I am still young and I wouldn’t want my dumbass to forget something.
Anyways, thanks in advance!
PS: if you are wondering how I plan on moving. As I said earlier, I picked up a job just for its demand and pay. Taiwan has a golden Visa program which I already had contact with and would get approved for. Plan B would just be to study abroad.
