    Default Come join us in the lounge!

    Well, now that application season over, it's time to start the long wait until interview announcements. While you're waiting, feel free to come talk with us in the lounge - not only are we brilliantly entertaining and full of sparkling wit, but we can give you some insight into what life might be like if you get accepted to JET. Having a realistic knowledge of the job and the challenges it offers will give you the upper hand in interviews. Not to mention that we want to know whether you got an interview or not! (And we know you'd just be checking facebook at the back of your gigantic lecture class anyway)

    or dont. go out and enjoy the last few months in your home country, take lots of photos of your home town to show the students, study some japanese, learn how to cook without an oven, watch plenty of un-pixilated porn, eat some normal food, read a book on teaching, take lots of illicit substances, live a little god dammit! dont end up like the lost souls here.
    Great men of action never mind on occasion being ridiculous; in a sense it is part of their job.

    I'm incredibly entertaining. Let me tell you about that one time I cooked pasta on my Japanese range and accidentally set the thing on fire.

    Shhhh. That was in college (did you see the picture of the clearfile I found about drying your clothes in the microwave? totally legit).

    This is why I don't have nice things. I'm always getting them caught on fire.

    Do you want some of mine? If you pay for the terabyte hard drive I can have a meticulously arranged collection of shaved lolis at your doorstep within the week.

    yeah, because who needs free flowing drugs and alcohol fueling adventorous sex with taut, lithe young bodies when you could wander around a dying town in the freezing cold with a can of asahi super dry in your hand while some toothless old farmer shouts at you.

    This entire thread is pretty persuasive, but the last six comments won me over.

    I doubt any of you guys remember me from when I was Caturday. >_>
    Regardless, I plan on enjoying December by burying myself under a mountain of freelance work. Gotta earn those holiday dolla dolla bills!
