Tough Start But Happy Now

by James
(Tokyo )

I came in winter, definitely not the best time to come. I worked for a gaigo gakuin that basically sent me out to a new location every single day.

The stress of having to find a new location every freaking day is immense. I quit and got a job as a high school ALT, on basically a JET contract). Absolutely love it, don't want to quit. Not sure if I want to be doing this at 40 but I'm happy now.

You said it was cold. Tell me about it. I work in Sapporo. You can't pry me away from my kotatsu table after work! Hang in there and drink some hot sake.
