I have so much news coming in from all around, but none telling me if I have any jobs… so I am just sitting here stressing waiting on about four responses…And now it is the weekend, so I just need to find a way to forget about it! I’m obsessing…Maybe I am worrying to much about it, but this plane that is supposed to carry me out of here in 2 1/2 weeks has me worried. If something is going to happen, it has to happen soon!
In desperation I’ve opened my job search to include non-arts jobs and have been really surprised! I have been going to gaijinpot.com and jobs on Japan.com and applying to every job, from business to eikaiwa (English conversation teachers), and I get so few replies! When they do reply, they ask when my visa expires, and when I say end of January, they never call back. It seems that everyone wants me to have a visa already, but I can’t get one without a job, it seems.
Really, any job will be fine for now, as long as I can stay in the country a little longer!
