Ok, Time to write Something

Haven’t been able to write anything much recently, for reasons no-one would understand except me. So I thought I’d write an update on the progress with JET and so forth. I have finally heard from my predecessor, and I am happy to know my rent won’t be too much. Also, the Chiba City Board that I will be working for kindly provides all the real necessities, such as a TV, Fridge, Stove etc. I’m not too sure how big my room will be, but I have been told it’s a single room (6 tatami mats) and attached kitchen. So hopefully I won’t be too squashed.

I’m still holding on to the IRD forms I’m supposed to fill out, and have yet to send back my VISA application (Not the credit card VISA) So ill be getting onto those soon. Feels good to know you have a place to go to, and find out what you will need to bring. Turns out the JET I’m replacing has been to over 32 schools over three years, so it looks like I’m going to have many schools, rather than one or two.

Nothing Much Happening

Thought I should write something, but I don’t really have anything to write about. Its a drag, waiting to hear back from JET to hear where I will be going. I did however, contact the Inland Revenue Dept regarding what I need to do before I leave the country. Turns out its not that much of a deal, even for those with student loans, all that is required is that an IRD3 be filled out, along with a leaving country form (dunno what its really called). More…I would like to fill these out, but until I know where I will be going, there isn’t much more I can do. Other than that, I’m also trying to get rid of all my stuff (stereo, pc, car) so I wont have too much of a loan to pay back (yeah, I’m borrowing money before I leave cause I am dirt broke) hopefully I can get it to around nothing (excluding my student loan) by the time I leave (when I will need to borrow another $4000) Ah well, a good business man always buys things with other peoples money, cant see why there is much difference here 🙂 Thats all for today folks, I will keep you in the loop regarding progress with JET (should be within a week) and then things should start rolling a bit smoother.
