    Re: Aspiring Canadian JETs 2016

    I think I got my JET number when I was notified of my placement, not when I accepted it.

    Re: Aspiring Canadian JETs 2016

    Call them first thing on Monday. Explain to them that you missed the email. Things like this happen. I'm not sure what the co-ordinator is like in Ottawa, but it's possible they'll understand.

    Hello! congratulations on getting an interview! To you and your husband.

    Re: Aspiring US JETs 2016

    If you interview with past JET participants, they'll probably mention it during your interview some time. They might not do that at the start so don't assume anything.

    I think weep is right.

    I think the people who come to Japan understand the social connotations of being an otaku and don't talk about it unless being asked about it by others.

    Maybe it's best to use the JET Inbox and see if they received your application.

    Re: What do you do when you get homesick?

    I think this is true for me. I don't miss home as much as I miss the people I was with when I was home. This is more about my friends than my family.

    I'm one of those weird people who enjoy...

    Re: Not Invited to Enkais

    They are attached to special events. I've gone to all of them. I feel good that I'm invited at all, because I think some people don't. I've had two so far, and will have another one in a few days.

    I think my ability to write English has atrophied since arriving in Japan.

    I just checked Air Canada's website and all it tells me is what's in the initial email from KIE. Maybe closer to departure date we can see seats and possibly be able to change it.
