There has been a recent spike in the number of hits on my JET application post, something that I had been expecting since the application opened a week or so ago. Hopefully it has given some good tips to aspiring JETs. Good luck with your SOP writing, guys! If you have any questions, about SOP or reference letters or the forms, feel free to ask them here or in the Singapore thread on the official JET forums.
I’ve been thinking how to blog lately. Truth be told, my life has become pretty much normal since I’ve settled in, and there’s very little to update regularly. Those of you whom I know are reading this are also on my FB, and there you get to see my (much more) regular updates about my life and in a more timely fashion too. So, what can I put in this blog that would be interesting?
Give me a comment if you have any suggestions. Otherwise it’s likely that this blog is going to suffer an early demise. XP
So, for Health-and-Sports Day （体育の日）I took the opportunity to run out of Kobe again to continue ticking prefectures off my list. This time round, a visit centred around the modern art-y island of Naoshima（直島）.
I happened on the island when I was looking up possible destinations. It was a toss-up between Okayama and Tokushima until I saw a picture of the famous Pumpkin, which sealed my decision.
Despite Naoshima’s proximity to the mainland, administratively, it’s part of Kagawa. To get there, however, I had to first get to Okayama. So on that bright morning, I got onto a bus and headed westwards.
Too many pictures again…
