Wow, so many changes...

First of all, I watched the new D-Boys drama, Okinawa Boys, here: http://www.netcinema.tv/ It was interesting! It was a little heartbreaking to see Yanagi again like that, limping.. And what his character's girlfriend did was AWFUL. Duuuuude... be supportive!! :X Come on!

Second of all... I was offered the job (that I interviewed yesterday for)! It does pay a bit less than what I'm getting now (I would be working less hours too tho), but I will have GREAT hours and they will sponsor my visa, pay travel expenses, etc. There are two problems though...... it's about 1 1/2 hours commute from Noborito (It's in Chiba, near Tokyo station)........ :X And they need me to start on the 9th if I get accepted. That's all well and great, yes, but I don't know how I'm going to quit NOVA so quickly and not get screwed over. I'm going to discuss it today with my manager when I go into work. Because this sounds like a GREAT opportunity. I can't pass this one up, no way. I hope I can work things out in a good way. OMG today is the day of change!! I would basically be doing what a JET teacher would do in an elementary school. Plus, I'll look into moving to the area in a couple of months so it won't be such a long commute. Supposedly the rent is really cheap over there. I'm really nervous about everything, since I'm not in the US anymore, and things are a lot tougher here.. but this opportunity is a really rare one and I'm really excited to take it. *crosses fingers* I would also have more than enough time to work with Shonen Jump! <3 YOSH~!

Third of all, I was sad because my favorite team was eliminated from the Amazing Race. ;__; Sad. Dude, and when are they going to come to Japan, man? (or China, that would be cool too) Oh, and a quick fourth-of-all.. Yamabuki Myu = luv! I need to go get my copy today. Ahhh, I can't wait!!

O~ME~DE~TOU~!!!!!!!!
Yattaaaa you actually did it!!!! Great!!!
Congratulations!!!! You'll work less and have the week end off!!!!!
probably in Chiba the rent is cheaper since it's a little far from the centre so you should be ok!!!
That's great!!! Now, tell me that you'll be working for Shounen Jump and that will be perfect^__^

I'm crossing my fingers! I told them about my meeting with Shonen Jump next week and they were pretty taken aback! XD

What is the job you're looking into?
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on April 20th, 2005 11:54 pm (UTC)
It'll be teaching in an elementary school. Actually, in 8 different schools. I'll do things like play games, etc.. all in english. =D it sounds like a lot of fun, plus it will give me a BIG hand up on practicing my japanese! <3

Oooo!!! Congratulations on getting the job!! It sounds like it's an awesome opportunity for you ^^

Congrats on getting the job!!!!!!!!

The rent in Chiba is pretty cheap (I was in Chiba when I was in Japan in the fall), and it still doesn't take too long to go to Tokyo from Chiba (and there is a small Animate there).

Aww...I actually miss Chiba a lot, when I start looking into applying for a crappy eikaiwa job next year I'll probably request the Chiba area.
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on April 21st, 2005 12:22 am (UTC)
I'm concerned about being so far from my favorite place, Shinjuku... But I think I'll just situate myself along a nice fast train line and it will be happiness! XD
Bethany☆彡 (べス)sourangel on April 21st, 2005 12:32 am (UTC)
You said the school is by Tokyo station, right? You could easily just hop on the Yamanote-sen to Shinjuku. I was a little farther into Chiba, so I always took the Sobu-sen or Chuo-sen, and it usually wasn't too bad of a ride to Shinjuku. Err...am blanking on the other train lines in that area.
Kokoclarinetkoko on April 21st, 2005 09:24 am (UTC)
Shinjuku is pretty near Chiba... You don't even have to change trains to get there. :D
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on April 21st, 2005 01:35 pm (UTC)
Honto desu ka? :O YAAAAY! That makes me happiness! <3
Kokoclarinetkoko on April 21st, 2005 01:40 pm (UTC)
Meh... actually, it takes an hour and 4 minutes or sometihng. o_O

I looked it up. xD But an hour can't be that bad, the average junior/high schooler usually take about an hour on the train to go to school.

^__^ I've got my fingers crossed for you. I hope NOVA doesn't jerk you around. That would not be nice at all. Job interviews are nerve-wracking, huh? I've got one tomorrow for a job that I really want too. *is nervous*

And yay for Yanagi being on TV! But boo for him getting treated badly by his tv girlfriend.
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on April 21st, 2005 01:30 pm (UTC)
Ah, they SO are!! Good luck on your interview!! <3

Yanagi wasn't on TV, it was an internet movie thing... Sounds like porn.. XD
Chiakichiaki777 on April 21st, 2005 02:45 am (UTC)
sounds cool, I'm not sure about the work experience of JET, but good luck. Hope you can get out without a hitch and onto the new job.

oh thanks for the link... ^^
