It’s 11:26 now, though, and I’ve realized there’s nothing else I want to do. I mean…what. I could get a desk job in the US; that would be fun! I could do what I’ve already been doing all my life. I could get in a serious relationship, and have a kid who gets to do all the things I wish I could have done.
Or, I keep trying. The economy’s against me. My family’s against me. The Japanese don’t want scary foreigners invading their land. But shit..this is all I’ve wanted for two years, and I’ve done everything I could to do it. So now, I’m going to apply for more Japan jobs, and if that fails, I’m just going to work till December (when the AEON lady told me I’d probably get in w/ them if they were still taking people), and use that money to fly to Japan and find a job over there. I’m not giving up.
I guess I just wanted to get that out there. I’ll probably keep coming to the forums, vainly hoping I get upgraded…but one way or another, I’ll be in Japan sometime in early 2010 at the latest.
