IRL Ding!


Congratulations, you have reached level 26!
Your Strength has increased by 10.
Your Intellect has increased by 300 kanji.
Your Spirit has increased to handle the constant stress of job-hunting.
You have gained a new ability [Complicated Hand-written Japanese Resume].
You have gained All the TV Feels (Rank 3).

And now we gif
This year was a really weird one. I went back to language school, intending to leave Japan afterwards.
School was actually great. I made friends and can now read a newspaper without crying.
It was also really rough. I had no money for activities and no time for gaming or writing. Losing the writing hurt me the most.
Surprising everyone, I came up with an acceptable thing to do with my life. It involves staying in Japan. Sorry, family.
I began the complicated and stressful process of getting my resume in order and applying to jobs.
So far, all of them have turned me down.
I won't tell you to give up on your dreams, or change them. But it can be rough trying to get to where they are.
I won't apologize for my constant emo whining on twitter. Tragedy is the source of comedy, at least in my case.
Thank you very much for continuing to follow me despite the distinct lack of posts this year. I appreciate each and every one of you, and I look forward to having the time to finally put all this pent up creative energy to use in the near future. :)
Keep positive. Keep moving.

  5. Hey, just recently started reading your blog and am enjoying it immensely. Grats on B-day. So are you going for the rest of the cheevies:
    "Not a Young Chick", "Past Her Prime" and "Old Fart"?

    Just kidding.

    Best Wishes

    1. Hello there! I'm particularly looking forward to the "Old Fart" achieve because it grants the minipet "Cranky Bastard" :)

    2. Oh yeah, he's my favorite too (been an Old Fart for a while now) with the cute emotes; "Get a haircut", "Get a job", "Get off my lawn". Just too adorable. ;0
