YouTube Vids

Yo yo, here's the last two updates. Enjoy!

w00t w00t!


Lifeness, Lifeitude?

Hello gang! Boy has it been awhile or what? Ok quick check list of some things that have happened in the last month!

1. Got a 3-year visa from Japanese immigration!
2. Got my 外人と六書 aka Alien Registration Card (sorta like an American green card)
3. Moved out of my brother's into his neighbor's spare room (home stay).
4. Been teaching some private students.
5. Got a job at Interac and am just waiting for my schedule. Should start in March.
6. Been doing a lot of design work for my brother's yoga studio as well as for some other fwends.
7. Might be starting up a video advertising company with a friend I met out here!
8. Finally started to shift into high gear with the Japanese study.

So really a lot. I haven't updated my Vlog in a few weeks but I'm hoping to remedy that soon. Had some really great conversations with my brother and we're getting along really well. Looking forward to doing more design work for him as I've had a ton of fun with it.

Not much Japan specific news. Had some ume wine the other day... It was delicious but strong!

Yeah so like I said, I'll get to working on the Japanese specific news soon. And I know I said it before but I'll start writing more here.

Until then...

I Lied.

Yeah so in my last update I said updates were a'comin. But they didn't. Such is life. I have been trying to stay abreast (haha) of my Vlog which you can view over here. Just to save you the trouble here's the latest iteration of it.

Hope you all enjoyed that. Anyways, there's so much I want to tell each and every one of you but just not enough time or desire to type it all out so I'll just hit you up with this fancy numbered list.

1. Got 2 job offers. Nova and Interac. They are both conditional on me getting my visa.
2. Still waiting for my visa, I'm thinking another 2-weeks and I should have it.
3. Have been spending most of my time walking around, going to interviews, trying not to go stir-crazy in this tiny town, and doing a lot of yoga and Tai Chi.
4. I think I've lost like 10lbs.
5. Made some good friends.
6. Seen some VERY interesting people.
7. Taken a lot of pictures, need to upload them however.
8. Got my first ever paying design job.
9. Been helping my brother make videos and flyers for his Yoga school.

And that's all I can think of right now. Not so much I suppose. I'll try to make my next update more... interesting. But until then, keep it real people!

Updates Are A'Comin' Paw!

Hey gang. I know it's been a long time and I hope you can forgive me. I will tell you this, I have been busy and have some fun stories to share. . . Though not just yet. However, in place of those oh-so-awesome stories I leave you with some pictures, and links to more of the like :)
