    My advice, quit thinking about it.

    Trying and failing. Advice? Disabling the auto email notification I get whenever someone replies to this thread would probably help.... haha

    This is my general philosophy haha. Just wish I had a clue where my life was going post-July. If I weren't waiting on JET, I'd probably be applying to other career-related things rn but knowing I might possibly be in Japan is making me not want to put a ton of effort into other applications... although I guess if I had truly adopted that philosophy I'd be applying to other things anyway.. hmm.

    Talking to a miserable wretch like Mothy should be enough to curb your interest in Japan

    Assume you've already failed and get moving on finding something else. Although rejection would suck, rejection without anything else going for you would be awful. Almost as bad as getting accepted and wasting years of your life in Japan.
