    Re: 2017 Hopefuls/applicants self-intro thread

    Hello ITIL! It's been years.

    I'm sort of a unique applicant. This is my fourth time applying (Never give up, never surrender!) and I think this year will be my best shot. I spent an entire...

    Been a while, huh? i'll start off by thanking everyone who've been a huge help the previous years. Second: NEVER GIVE UP NEVER SURRENDER.

    Re: Aspiring US JETs 2015

    I'm burying myself in JLPT studies, work, and taking care of my plants. I might have artificially pollinated two of my carnivorous successfully, and I am currently cloning three of them, and I have a...

    Re: Aspiring US JETs 2015

    I mailed out my application today! I asked my bosses what they wrote about me, and I found out that they wrote the kindest things about me! ;-;

    I'm so happy with all the support I got from here...
  7. Re: Some simple advice for you while applying/interviewing

    Your true motivation was for us to entertain you, wasn't it? >_>

    I believe you guys secretly bet which applicants will make it. There's gotta be a betting ring going on.
  8. Re: Some simple advice for you while applying/interviewing

    I'm, I guess that's an invitation then? So far, ya'lls advice has been similar to what I heard last year. I'll have to say that my friends that are in JET loved it, but they knew how to make the most...

    Re: Placement requests!

    Yeah, I doubt any place in Japan would be worse than New Orleans East. It's always fun to come home to police tape around your yard because five of your nextdoor neighbors were shot (three of them...

    Re: Placement requests!

    Well, on the bright side, a city will have more stores and places to go shopping. I try to be optimistic about most things I go through. I'm sure no matter where I am placed, I'll find something to...

    Re: Placement requests!

    Haha, yeah that makes sense. I don't mind rural too much as long as the scenery and nature is great. I lived in Amish-town, Pa for almost a year and it was made bearable thanks to the breathtaking...

    Re: Placement requests!

    Yup! Lived in Metairie, NO East, and the Northshore through my entire college career and up until this past April. Is Shimane that boring? Now I'm starting to lean more towards Gunma and Gifu now.

    Re: Placement requests!

    I ain't gonna lie. That already has my attention. What are the taxes and fees like, though? And the rent? Is Gifu pretty cheap in general?

    Re: Placement requests!

    I'm interested in Gunma, Shimane, Aomori and Gifu. Now I'm interested in Yamanashi. I have friends in Yamanashi and Aomori. Shimane has a prefecture that is a sister city to New Orleans. Gunma seems...

    Re: TweedPawn's Hangout for Second Chances

    Yeah, even if I can't grow carnivorous plants because of the weather, I wouldn't mind taking on flowers as a new plant to try. I hear that Gunma is known for their flowers. Any thoughts on this?

    Re: Aspiring US JETs 2015

    Well, I just moved to a tiny town in Oklahoma in April, but I still consider myself a representative of New Orleans. I would go with whatever you feel the most kinship with! After all, it'll be...

    Re: Error reported in the JET Application

    Yeah, this year is starting to remind me of last year when applications were late to go out. On the bright side, JET seems pretty good about offering extra time when there are hiccups like this.
