Anxiety surrounding a new job is completely normal. In fact, as Fast Company reported in 2015, science says people are "hard-wired" to feel anxious in pretty much any new situation. With the added pressure of wanting to make a good first impression with your new supervisor, or to excel at your job duties off the bat, it's no surprise that making the jump to a new career can be an anxiety-provoking endeavor.

I had a job once where I felt constant anxiety. I thought that I would be fired. Another (extremely narcissistic) teacher had something against me, and they tried to have me removed from the school. I wasn't the only victim; the teacher also made the lives of other teachers hard, along with the Chinese staff. Much harder than it should have been. In fact, the teacher made the Chinese staff cry on multiple occasions. In a western workplace, all this would be referred to as bullying, and the teacher would be fired immediately. I even think the teacher hated the Chinese people, which is truly ironic.
The teacher had issues with all the English teachers, of which two were pressured to leave. They pushed one of the teachers out because they couldn't handle the fact that they stood up for themselves.
Let's hope this teacher learns from past experience, but I doubt it. A really sad situation. Let’s hope; ‘What goes around comes around’.

There is a typical cycle that most people experience when they go through the loss of a job. It includes denial, anger, frustration, and eventually adaptation.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
