    But it's so much fun being a random lurker instead. Oh well, I'm here now.

    Welcome Moirica. You don't want to stay on here too long though. After a while, you end up like Mothy in Anything Goes and start writing erotic fiction about other members on ITIL. I've not even been here a year and I'm sick enough to read the damn thread.

    I'm sure they are still around somewhere. They'll be back, when applications come out most likely.

    And thanks for the welcome everyone.

    All the lurkers, join up. These forums are great for very realistic (and at times a little brutal) advice for applying for JET, and I find them far more informative than the official forums. And the best way to get involved in it is to sign up and start chatting. Start here first...then when you think you're ready for it, head on over to Anything Goes.

    You'll meet some awesome people and gain some good friends!

    And enemies! *glares*

    But no really, its no bother to just sign up and ask the random stuff in your head, its not like it costs anything or the people here have the power to ban you from jet for asking daft questions.

    Completely agreed. I'm now friends in real life with at least 2 of the posters on here. Also, the advice on here is great.

    ITIL is a really great resource for JET stuff and who needs real life friends anyway?

    10 months? You underestimate me...I'll do it in five.

    But enough derailment, the point is, the forums are a great resource for all you newbies and the more you put into it, the more you'll get out of it.

    Lurkers should definitely join, I got some good tips and help on these forums in the Applying forum and was able to have someone look over my SoP - it definitely helped ease the uncertainty that surrounds the application process for JET as well as kill a whooooole lot of time.

    Although I am more of an occasional poster than an established ITILer, I definitely think what Word said is true - you feel more of an affinity to those usernames you have seen before.

    Welcome happyBuddha. Sounds like you've already made an acquaintance with Mothy's thread.

    VonD, how far have you got on TEFL? I'm only on section 2 of core unit 2. I keep finding stuff to watch on Youtube instead. I'm trying to come up with a way to turn procrastination into a quality that I can insert into my SOP. Any ideas?

    Ahh your ahead of me ! and i thought I was doing so well lol, I keep taking loads of notes (over 50 pages of a5 both sides, which seems over the top but its just how i learn) unfortunately I also keep picking up my xbox 360 pad . . . although i think im gonna cut back on the notes !

    errmmm a positive spin, lets see,

    " I find myself adept at undertaking new tasks whilst still giving focus to those I have previously begun in order to sustain an equilibrium, I feel this is a characteristics that would benefit my ability to perform on the JET program because," hows that ? lol
