  Have any of you ever signed up with one those online death notification services?

Or do you plan to live forever though Facebook?

such a cute weirdo.


ahoy!

I went to school over the summer. And then went to a family reunion in Chicago. Which was interesting. It was all of my dad's younger sisters and their husbands and children in attendence. Two of my uncles-by-marriage discussed loudly and at length how they wouldn't allow their girls to date people of color (not their words, they used words no where near civil) or to be lesbians (good luck preventing that!). Then all but two of my cousins (all girls ranging from 13-19) decided they were going to brag about their escapades (theft, destruction of public property, sleeping with every male at school, sex in public, drinking, getting high off of everything from weed to meth) and try to manipulate me into buying/stealing them booze. I tried to tell my mom about this bullshit and she just stated it was their parent's problem. Great. So all in all it wasn't that great of a summer vacation. I'm happy to stick to school as much as I can and avoid people.

  Here!

Trying to decide whether to stay another year in Japan or not. I've been here one and a half years, if I sign I'll be here another year and a half. Everything rational points to staying, I like my job, it's great money (probably the best I'll ever make), I have friends here and not much future-wise back home. But irrationally, I'm afraid that I'm wasting my prime (dwindling) years of youth in a country where I can't speak the language, socialise to my full extent, or get further ahead in life. Thoughts?

Don't worry about wasting your prime years of youth. There's is much truth in the quote "youth is wasted on the young".
Stay in Japan, save money, learn the language. If you do this, when and if you finally do go home, your future will be much brighter. Believe me your older self will be much appreciative of this.

I think if you like where you live and you have people there you'd be sorry to leave behind, you'd be making a mistake to give in to a "grass is greener" impulse and move back to NZ or try somewhere else. Living in Japan as a teacher is probably not what you pictured for yourself as a teen, and I think in our twenties we start feeling antsy about the direction our lives are taking (in spite of realizing on an intellectual level that adulthood is never what you expect), because 1) we don't want to feel we've compromised on *everything* and 2) we miss the naive certainty of adolescence and knowing exactly what we want. But you'll only waste your youth by not enjoying it because you're too busy worrying about another kind of life that will no more be what you planned than this one was.

I'm fast approaching thirty now and just beginning to realize how much opportunity I still have left (a whole helluva lot). It's a good feeling. You have more time than you think, youth isn't the only time to shine.

Thank you for this, Kira. I need to remember this more often...

  I KNEW IT.

Anyway, I think (despite your wonderful advice) I'm still going to leave. For awhile I was considering staying, but I realised I'm pretty much stagnant over here (I only teach 2 of the 8 hours I'm at school) and I am itching for a change. While NZ isn't exactly rife with opportunities, it is at least a place I can use to get to them.

I've been talking to a few Americans, I found this interesting because in NZ hardly anyone has bachelors degrees, but they were saying in the states a Masters is the new Bachelors? (By bachelors I mean undergrad)

Generally speaking this is true. Going to college was quite a privilege for past generations but it doesn't make you all that special these days. In order to stand out, people have to go to school longer if they want to make the big bucks. This is not helped by the fact that America's education system is a joke and employers know this, so they want to see that potential hires have made an extra effort after they got out of said system.

What really creeps me out is how EARLY kids are starting school now. Although a lot of that is just that daycare centers have taken to calling themselves schools. But still.

Oh, and I check here a few times a week, but I won't break the silence alone.

Keep everything in your pockets and hiss at anyone that comes too close. You'll look crazy but no one will bother you or your things.

I'm on the Upper East Side. Switching apartments soon but planning to stay in the neighborhood. I don't plan on raising a family here but I should be staying put a few years.

Thanks hif. :) I'm pretty much resigned now to getting a new one.

Haha yeah, that would probably do the trick. I'd rather people felt comfortable around me, and me occasionally get taken advantage of, than be 100% secure in my person and property, and isolated.

You'll be ok, just don't go trying to buy a supersize coke anywhere, you might get in trouble over that.
