    Good article. Relevant to me. I don't talk to people about the sh*t I want. Barely mentioned my application to JET at all, and when I did, downplayed the f*ck out of it. I don't currently talk to anyone except MG about my long-term goals and plans, and even then, there's sh*t I keep to myself (she probably isn't particularly interested in hearing about how much I wanna **** * ****** ******* ** *** ****** *** ***** *** *********** **** ***** ***** ** *********).

    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.

    A girl with emotional problems came to Japan five years ago. She stayed here all five years while dealing with her issues.

    And then a month and a half ago committed suicide.

    Your problems aren't going to go away on their own, and Japan has a famous lack of mental health services.

    Yeah, but be honest; there's probably at least one day that you came close but decided not to because you remembered that half a bottle of wine sitting on the kitchen counter and couldn't bear the thought of someone you hated getting to drink it.

    Ya but if you've cleaned out a dead person's house before, (or nearly dead) you'd realize it doesn't matter what is left behind. it"s all garbage.

    They announced her death on via email nationwide to all JET participants... real tactful.

    Yeah, she had a bunch of posts about depression and suicide in the weeks leading up. (I didn't know her, I only saw this after the fact)

    What prefecture or vague region if you don't mind me being ghoulish? I knew a few Jets that were on the brink when I left a couple of years ago but I don't do Facebook.

    Well, every JET received the email, so I assume it's okay to tell you. It's Kumamoto.

    True enough. When MG and I moved into our old farmhouse, we were startled at all the crap left behind. I think we've both since promised to not have so much stuff, and that what stuff we do have should just be thrown into a dumpster somewhere when we kick off. I hang on to the occasional old pictures and keepsakes and sh*t but f*ck if they're actually anything that anyone else in their right mind would want.

    Hmm, I guess not.
