So here we are Jan 05 2012. I’ve applied to two more jobs. As I browse the job boards it seems as the the wellspring is drying up. I’m applying to jobs in all areas. I’m not picky. Except for one that I passed on because it was so near to the Fukushima area. Sorry I want to go to Japan bad, but not that bad.
So jobs require experience in Japan teaching already. I don’t have that. I’ve seen two that was looking for people who were already living in Osaka. I suppose at the moment there isn’t much that I can do about that. I can take the plunge and head out. But when. When do you do it? When do you say ok now is the time when I know that I can do it. Now is the perfect time to go and apply with hopes that I will find something and that this won’t just be a really expensive vacation. Where? Where do you go? Tokyo? Osaka? Nagoya? Hiroshima? Fukuoka? Okayama? There are some niche market areas. Like Okayama, or Gifu or Mie, but I think the larger cities offer the better chance.
I’m beginning to think that maybe I should spend that year in Korea or Taiwan. Just because I can. I mean sure its not Japan. But its not here either. I mean its the easy way out, but its still out…
I don’t know. But I’m not just sitting here. I am applying; I am trying. I’ll probably do another video blog soon. With more ENGERGY! HAHA. Good things coming soon though.
I’ve got a couple of expansions for the blog as well. One for bikes both here and in Japan. When I see them when I ride them and when I explore on them. And one for cars. Since most of you will want to see the cars that I’ll be looking at or gawking over in Japan. But I probably won’t start that until I get there. Unless I do a quick blog on the Hopeless Romantics here before I leave.
Anyway. I’ll leave you with a song since I haven’t done that in a bit.
