  1. Re: Application question - do you think I will be automatically disqualified?

    In this instance I think a 9% (which is hilarious, by the way) is better than a mark that is closer to a pass. Surely a 9% shows that something awful occurred. Just be prepared to answer questions...

    Re: JET and Student Loan Debt

    So I can't speak for every location, or every situation, but I am having no problem saving money. Without ANY struggle it is easy for me to stash away about $500 a month. I saved around $800 this...
  3. Re: AJET Connect: TO - Worth it's weight in...?

    I know people love to shit on AJET, but it seemed relatively well put together. Some of the information was somewhat interesting, even if almost all of it had already been covered by the...

    Re: Currency Issues

    I don't know if I just lucked out, but my local credit union didn't charge me anything. They gave me the same exchange as the FOREX was reporting, so they didn't conceal their fees in the exchange...
  5. Sticky: Re: Official "Things that can and cannot be found in Japan"

    I would rather deal with it honestly, but I understand that it is usually better to ask for forgiveness than to ask for permission. Basically, I will have to feel things out when I get there....
  6. Sticky: Re: Official "Things that can and cannot be found in Japan"

    Height won't be a problem. I mean, worst case scenario I can Micky Mouse something.

    Anyway, I feel like we are getting off track... It appears that this is something that hasn't been seen in...
  7. Sticky: Re: Official "Things that can and cannot be found in Japan"

    Well, personally, I may be stuck with a BOE twin size bed. I am a grown ass man, I can't sleep on a godforsaken twin. With no ability to rid myself of the bed (without ruffling feathers), this seems...
  8. Sticky: Re: Official "Things that can and cannot be found in Japan"

    Does anyone know if it is possible to buy a twin bed bridge in Japan? For those who don't know what I am talking about (which is probably everyone) here is a link.

    Sticky: Re: Not so obvious advice for new ALTs

    The majority of the new hires aren't capable of reading kanji, so writing those words using kanji isn't super helpful. Just sayin'...

    Re: Alternates Hangout

    Surprisingly, I would say that there is a good amount of people in their late twenties this year being hired (at least out of Toronto). I expected to be the oldest, as I am nearly thirty, and found...

    Re: Alternates Hangout

    Oh no you don't. Don't be a tease like that! I want the dirt. You better start another topic, name it something like "The worst that could happen", and tell that story. Only a monster teases juicy...
  12. Re: Questions about furniture and interior design...

    Yeah, her reaction to me asking about a place I could buy furniture probably says it all... I didn't want to push the issue as my pred has been absolutely amazing (I sincerely doubt anyone has ever...

    Re: Alternates Hangout

    I am happy there is FINALLY another Canadian upgrade. Hold in there, guys, I am sure there are more to come.
  15. Re: Questions about furniture and interior design...

    Wow, thanks for the huge post, Lian. There is a lot of good stuff there, some of it doesn't apply to my situation (I do have a balcony), but it is still solid advice. Hopefully this topic can be a...
  16. Re: Questions about furniture and interior design...

    It is partly subsidized, I won't be paying much (about $150 Canadian). Personally, I don't actually want to cause problems for my BOE. Also, I am personally thinking that two years will be the length...
  17. Re: Questions about furniture and interior design...

    That is very interesting. I was considering doing something similar. I don't know why, but my apartment appears to be one quarter closet space. One wall of the main room (it is a 1k apartment) is...
  18. Questions about furniture and interior design...

    So, I have seen pictures of my apartment... It is small. That, however, was to be expected. Now, while some people will surely be happy to just leave their apartment as it is, I would prefer to make...

    Re: First Month on JET (This Upcoming August)

    I am not in Japan at the moment, and it sounds like most schools won't have any REAL use for you in the office when you first arrive, but don't you think that sounds a little unprofessional? I don't...

    Re: Alternates Hangout

    I have met many of my fellow newly minted JETs now... Most of these people appear to be super solid; others that I have met, well, not so much. There are at least four JETs, that I have met, that I...

    Similarly, I did the CELTA program and I am a true believer. I was VERY happy with the program. Very intensive, but super insightful.
