    Re: JET or 'real' job?

    ^ This is totally true.

    However, even if it's a totally terrible experience, if you've never lived abroad outside of the comfort of being a tourist, I think this is a valuable experience.

    Plus,...

    Re: Top 5 English mistakes you see.

    1) Shitting on each other for mistakes. I was a college writing tutor in the States, so grammatical errors are not something I get irritated by. Attitude, that does bother me. And one thing that...

    Re: Life after JET?

    I basically became an adult during JET. The only growing pains I didn't experience during my time here is the job hunt, and since I graduated into the Recession, it has me terrified.

    Re: Ladies and LGBT ALTs, what's it like to be you?

    No offense taken :). This question is a valid one, and is one of the reasons I just went ahead posting without it. I wanted my guide to apply to as many ALTs as possible, and to look at a wider...

    Thanks for chiming in, you wonderful, beautiful people. (Body image is a thing I would never have thought about, and that aspect of being a female ALT is very interesting.)

    Thanks for the advice.

    Tumblr confuses the heck out of me but I'll give it a look.

    Ladies and LGBT ALTs, what's it like to be you?

    I NEED YOUR HELP.

    Hi. I want to write a blog post talking about the highs and lows of various aspects of life here in Japan so new ALTs can have some idea of what to expect. I'm a straight male,...

    This is why you got rejected.

    Getting rejected sucks, especially for the marathon application process that the JET Program puts people through. For what it's worth, guys, there are an...

    Good ol brain storming is 'ブレインストーム'.

    Thanks, Jig.

    As I keep trying to clarify, I wasn't asking for personal advice, but I appreciate the time you spent on that monster post, and letting me know I'm not alone. There is some good...

  18. Re: What do you guys do to get through boredom/isolation at work?

    I thought maybe I wasn't the only person with mind-numbing boredom, so the 'you' in "What do you guys..." was an attempt at making conversation. I get that people sometimes ask for advice indirectly...
  19. Re: What do you guys do to get through boredom/isolation at work?

    Well, as much as I'm enjoying this flogging, I'd appreciate it if anyone actually wanted to answer the question. If not, do me a favor and let the thread die.

  21. Re: What do you guys do to get through boredom/isolation at work?

    I don't think anybody can multi-task (scholarly proof: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dQw4w9WgXcQ).

    Are you sure you're an ALT, because it sounds like you have an actual job.
  22. Re: What do you guys do to get through boredom/isolation at work?

    'Bowlcut-sensei' is an insult to staff, and I'd die for my own right to say it.

  23. Re: What do you guys do to get through boredom/isolation at work?

    A novel it is.
    Was genuinely curious if anyone else had the above problems and what their preferred remedies are, not just advice for myself.
  24. Re: What do you guys do to get through boredom/isolation at work?

    I am literally kinda lost, I'm new here. :v
  25. What do you guys do to get through boredom/isolation at work?

    Graduation and other times of year where I have no work and am doing nothing kinda make me crazy.
    Your responses, please, I'll love you forever.
