    Default I thought I'd introduce myself

    Hello, my name is [redacted]. I'm a junior in college in Texas studying business. I plan to apply for JET next fall. I've been interested in Japan for about 5 years now, I've wanted to do JET for about 2 years. I love travelling and experiencing foreign culture. I'm half French and fluent in it from my mother speaking it to me at a young age and traveling to France almost every summer to visit family. I'm eager to chat with all of you, after lurking for a few hours I get the gist that you're all on average a lot nicer than other J-forums. Feel free to ask me any random questions or introduce yourself!

    Are you sure you have the right tab open in your browser?

    Oh come on, I'm sure we are nice(ish)...

    ...

    In applying at least?

    Edit : Anyway, it's nice to meet you Kisling, though I have a feeling your post is in the wrong section of the site.

    I wonder what other j forums must be like. I might have settled into the wrong place

    My advice to you is to start on your sop now; the current years crop are twisting themselves up over it, having their extended family and all their elementary school teachers edit and critique it. You'll be halfway done with that process when the app opens next fall.

    Heh, I'm looking forward to starting it soon. I know the terrors of procrastination firsthand

    Seriously, you need to be here a few days and see a real sh*t storm go down.

    But if you survive, best of luck to you and join us over in the lounge some time.

    How will you be able to stand the wait till next fall? I'm already about to go crazy and I just submitted everything last week.

    Eh, if it happens, it happens.

    If not, then move on to the next plan.

    It's hard to find good hemp rope these days.

    Seriously though, what is the next plan? I've always thought people invest too highly in the possibility of JET.

    For me, it's not like I'm having an existential crisis over JET, even though I'd really like to get in.

    If not, it will just be life as usual (I've already got a full time job). Maybe I'll move out of state after a while, buy a house. Take a vacation. Who knows.

    I don't like KPop or JPop haha. I'll look into going to South Korea in case I don't get into JET. I'm interested in Asia. Not for the lame reasons like the girls or anime and whatnot.

    That's a good attitude, in my opinion.
