Hi, my name is Jess and my toon is Hakutaku. I'm an American living in Japan. Although I've been playing WOW since the beta stress test I dont have many high level toons. My friends keep changing servers on me. Plus when I moved to Japan the timezone gap was killing me. Huray for Oceanic servers!! Anyway, I'll stop here before I ramble too much. See you in game.

I got a job teaching English through the embassy. The job program is called J.E.T. (Japan Exchange Teaching). I teach in the junior high schools and sometimes elementary. Its a great job, but the 'teaching English' part is a bit of a joke most of the time. The school system really isn't set up to teach languages very well. I love my job anyway. Very Happy

Living in Japan can be a bit strange at times. Its not like in Anime where everything is all shiny, high tech, and glam. In fact most of my friends and co-workers are pretty computer illiterate.

I love living here because the people can be really nice, but some things kinda suck. Heating and air-conditioning is my favorite gripe. Pretty much every house/apartment is uninsulated and poorly heated/air-conditioned. Plus the school rooms have NO heating/air-conditioning. Enough griping from me. Good parts of Japan are excellent public transport, good food, odd-ball TV, public health care (coming from the US this is a big deal), and many more.

I think that covers the basics. If you have any more questions or just want to hear more I can post more later. I'm currently staying up way too late and need to get to sleep.

Yeah, I wouldn't be able to live in a country without robust public health care, the idea of having no safety net scares the hell out of me. How long have you been teaching english?

Loving your avatar btw Very Happy

I'd love to try the food some day Very Happy. It's somewhat of a surprise to hear that heating/air conditioning isn't up to standard, just not something you would expect Smile. I have heard that the health care system is excellent though.
Good to have you on the forums Very Happy

I started teaching English when I came to Japan. In the US I got my degree in Art Education, but being an Art Teacher kinda sucked. I'm in the middle of my 3rd year of teaching in Japan. I've got another 2 years available at my current job and then I need to figure out what the heck I'm going to do next.

Gotta love LFG avatars Smile
