maybe a little premature, but...  
please don't make me regret posting this...

I'm moving to Shinjuku!!!!

It's not 100% final and there are definitely monetary issues to work out and a few things to hear back from. But Naoko called me a few minutes ago and told me that it all seems to be a-ok and tomorrow she'll call me with the 100% okay!!

For those that don't know (okay, nearly everyone, unless you live in Tokyo), the new apartment that I picked is nearly perfect! It's 2 stops on the subway from Shinjuku proper, just 3 minutes! It's on the same line that I work on too, so it's a LOT closer than now! But more importantly, I could actually bike/walk to Shinjuku station! Technically, the station that I'm at is going to be Akebonobashi, and the apartment is 1 minute from the station, just down a side street from the main road. It's perfect!!

The address, I actually don't have at the moment, but it's something-something-something, Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo ward. I am the ultimate dork, because I'm happy that I will have Shinjuku and Tokyo in my address. Me=dork! It's also.. inside the yamanote line! I was told that it was really expensive inside of there, but it's the same price as the area I work in! So it was an easy choice! (And it's CLOSE to all of my friends, YAY!!!!)

There are a lot more details. Let's just say that come tomorrow afternoon/evening, I expect to be celebrating!

I knooooow T_T Some of it's because the Seed characters are very spammy, and they commented a lot, and two of the "UST" couples started talking back and forth in the comments, but.. still.

and I've been in IRC chatting with them all day so I'm only on like, chapter 7 still XD;;

LOL I've been doing other things (like finishing QaF s4) so I've only now just gotten around to continuing the book.... but it's so hard to put it down! I only managed because I kept getting email sounds and my curiosity got the better of me! Plus I had to take out my contacts!! The book's getting better and better!! ♥

YES. I'm glad you were able to navigate the maze of Japanese renting policy. (GAWD the deposit policy in Japan blows.) Hope the apartment meets expectations ... Shinjuku is fucking happening, you know.

Alright. So I am still quite out of the loop about you, but I need to ask;

Why do you live in Japan? I'm a nerd to the-ultra, and have dreamed of living in Japan since I was about nine, but I still can't think of a plausible reason to. And if your answer is "Well, I like Japan, so I decided to move here!!", you'll be my hero. Because I'll have evidence for my parents that it is possible.

Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on July 19th, 2005 02:24 am (UTC)
LOL, you're right! ^__^ I moved to Japan because I started watching anime when I was in high school, and dreamed of living there! I thought it would be really neat to live in Japan!

So as I was about to graduate from college, I started thinking about my options. Being an American, the stipluation for working in Japan is that I have to have a bachelor's degree. It's necessary to get a work visa, but it can be in any subject of course. ^^ Stupid American laws. Luckily, I was 2 months from having my bachelor's degree, so I decided that the easiest way to stay in Japan for a while was to get a job teaching english. It was easy (I applied for a company called NOVA)! Boom, two months after graduation, I was on my way to Japan! ^^

I honestly think that wanting to live in JApan is a really good reason to go! Why else would anyone want to be here? I'm always amazed by all of the english teachers that I meet that have no interest in Japan at all and just came over to make money. ^^;;;;;;; My dream now is to become a manga artist, and I will definitely make it happen!! ^__________^v
