I've been here for almost 2 weeks and I already got a job. It's nuts. I'm very fortunate, thankful, and lucky to have such amazing friends like Marlow and Antonette. It's because of them that I'm here and have a job. I owe them a lot.
In the meantime of getting interviews for jobs, I've done the following: I've eaten Indian, Vietnamese, Chinese and of course Japanese food, had 2 mugs of Japanese beer with an Englishman last night, went to Karaoke, visited Takeshima (Take Island), learned how to use the subway and train system (I still need work on the train though), tried canned coffee, canned jello juice, other weird Japanese snacks, been to Central Park (underground shopping center), been asked by a prostitute if I want to sex her up (which I said yes to, jk), learned new Japanese words (ku=ward, shi=city, koen=park, dori=street, yatta!=i did it!, beeru=beer, toiletu=toilet, sakura=cherry blossom) and made new friends. All of that in two weeks. Quite a change from Ruskin. I do miss home, family and friends, but as the days go by, it gets easier and easier.
I might get an iPhone. I'm still not sure.
