新宿に In Shinjuku.....  
All I have to say is... wtf?

Shinjuku makes the strangest choice in stores, I swear. Yes, they were selling drug paraphanelia inside. Ooooh dear. XD;;;;

Did you know that they sell something called a "legal drug" on the streets of Kabuki-cho Shinjuku? I've heard that it's really potent, and yes, it's completely legal. They sell it out of these shady-looking stalls. I'd never try drugs of any kind, but it does make me turn my head.


Crazy crazy Tokyo. =D

Wow, I didn't realize how difficult the requirements were for the test. I can see your point very well. I also feel like wanting to live in Japan, either because I'm in love with it and don't know any better so I'm just saying that or whatever, but I couldn't give up my US citizenship. That really is unfair. I'm jealous of my friend who has dual citizenship just because her parents were born there, but she wasn't. From what I understand, she's only been in Japan 3 times in her life to visit relatives. Grrr, indeed!

The permanent residency visa would be the route I'd choose too, if I were in your position. But still, 10 years...you've lived in Japan for at least 2 years already, right? Anyway, I think that my mom had a permanent visa a while ago to stay in the US. She already got her US citizenship, so that visa doesn't matter anymore, I guess. But I remember that before she got it, it seemed like we'd always be stopped at the Canada-US border patrol. It was either because of the visa or because we "had too many people in the vehicle." It's ridiculous.

I totally agree with you again, on the privilege of birth. There are a lot of deserving people out there that should be given more respect and whatnot depending on the type of person they are...like unfortunate people who are looked down upon because of social status, for example. And then there's a lot of snobs who live the rich life just because they were born into it. I'm disappointed that we live in a society that operates and focuses on social status rather than personal worth.

I really wish that I had Paris Hilton's wealth. Imagine not having to work a day in your life, and being able to live wherever you wanted to. Then you could pursue your dream and really contribute to culture (unlike what she does... or rather, doesn't do... with her money).

There is, of course, always another way out. If I got married to a japanese person, I could stay here. But I don't want to do that just for the sake of a visa. NO WAY. I only want to get married for love, and even then it's not likely that the type of marriage I want will be allowed. >.>;

Pfft. Whenever I think of Paris Hilton, I think to myself, "Why her?" She is famous for literally doing nothing. She makes me angry.

Un, that would also do the trick, but I guess you're not going for that one, huh. Dang, life sucks sometimes XDDD, demo ganbare yo.

Hmm, thanks for talking with me like this. I haven't had an intelligent, rantful talk with anyone for a while now, thanks! ^^

I think that Paris Hilton is rather funny. In the "oh, I feel sorry for you....." sort of way. XD;; I really liked the Simple Life. ^^

I suppose it's not 100% impossible that I would marry a japanese person, even a guy. If I was in love with them, then I suppose I would do it (10 years from now XD). I'd never do it for a visa, though. ^^
