    I hope that's not your real name that you're posting here?

    Haven't we been using real names? Or did I miss something?

    If you saw a pair of Bogans jump off a cliff, would you copy them?

    Zing!

    But yeah people, I'd say don't use real names. One of the advantages of using a place like ITIL is that you're anonymous and can ask questions/make complaints that you wouldn't necessarily want just anyone seeing.

    I will try not make you too jealous with my current plans:
    29th October - 6th November: Cairns/Port Douglas (Scuba diving and running Great Barrier Reef Half Marathon)
    6th November - 12th November: Bali (Chilling)
    12th November - 14th November: Kuala Lumpur (Travel Hub)
    15th November - 27th November: China (I need to go back to try get a Police Clearance Certificate from when I worked there, as I will need it should I get accepted to JET. But also catch up with some friends)
    27th November - 17th December: Philippines (Cannot wait to get back there!!!)
    17th December - 20th December: Kuala Lumpur (Travel Hub)
    20th December: Back to UK :-( after 3 and half years away. But going back on the hope that I get accepted, as I will have to interview there. If I don't get accepted, I need to get a new passport anyway (running out of pages and expires Jan 2018). Kinda putting all my eggs in the JET basket at the moment, if I don't get accepted I will worry about it when the time comes.....
    What's with all the old people applying?

    Oh, hey. Didn't see the mention of Seattle before. I also was from Seattle in the long ago before Japan.

    Age is only a number my friend ;-)

    We "old people" are wiser and won't go crying home to mummy and daddy, as we are immune to culture shock :-p

    Really? Because the way you substitute sideways smileys instead of actual punctuation suggests that you are in fact a 13 year old girl on msn.
