I just got a call from the GEOS office today, when I was on my way home from work...

...and apparently they want to place me in Yokohama. Hells yes XD. I would love to be in Yokohama! That's so close to Tokyo <3.

It's not 100% certain that I'll get to go there, but the fact that they're trying to place me there makes me really happy ^_^. I feel like they really listened, and want to put me where I want to be.

I won't cry or anything if I suddenly can't teach there, but I can't help but be excited at the moment ^_^. If they decide to put me somewhere other than Yokohama, then I'll just find reasons to be excited about going wherever else too XD. *wants to be happy no matter what*

Just... let me relish the thought of living so close to Tokyo now, though ^^;. *daydreams*

if you do get yokohama and i get Ota city, then atleast we can meet up in Tokyo ^__^ it's great that they've given you a tentative placement now though!

How far away from Tokyo is Ota City? My geography skillz are made of fail, so I don't really know where anything is XD. We should definitely meet up in Tokyo sometime, though! Have you been there before? What do you like to do?

I'm so glad that I've been given a placement... it feels like it's real now that I get to go XD. I knew I was hired before, but it was so weird without a place or date to look forward to.

ummm.... well, from looking at a map i found online, Ota city is about twice the distance from Tokyo that Yokohama is, but in the northwest instead of to the south.

i've actually never been to Japan at all XD so.... no, i've never been to Tokyo and have no idea what the city offers in the way of things to do (other than that i want to be nearby for concerts XD)

i know what you mean about the placement. it makes everything more real.... did they give you a tentative training date with the placement?

Well, Yokohama is stupidly close to Tokyo, so that means Ota City isn't that far away, even if it's twice as far XD. I've never lived anywhere near the ocean, so I'm looking forward to being near Tokyo and being near a big body of water.

I went to Japan for a semester in Tokyo a couple years ago, so I've had a little experience with the culture. What types of things do you like? Maybe we can figure out somewhere fun to go sometime XD. If you like anime or doujinshi or manga, I know where all the good stores are XD.

The dates they gave me were... fly to Vancouver on August 24th, train 25th - 28th, and fly to Japan on the 29th. Ahh, now that I have the dates, it seems like those days will be very busy XD;.

lol! well i hear about an hour and a half by shinkansen, so that's not so bad.

that's pretty awesome ^.^ atleast you'll have some idea of what to expect.

as to my interests: love anime and manga (though i can be a bit picky >>). especially love yaoi with a plot XP i'm also a huge Visual Kei fan (so i'll be hoping to catch a lot of my favourite artists while they're on tour). i'm also interested in finding out about traditional stuff (tea ceremony, flower arranging, fan dance, kabuki theatre, etc). i love cosplay (though i'm not sure that i'd feel confident going to a japanese con XD). ummm..... enjoy karaoke (though if the lyrics are in kanji and i don't know the song well, i'm screwed XD). can't think of anything else at 3am XD

that's pretty cool. so i'll have a couple of months to settle in and figure out how to get around before you arrive ^.^

I was really excited to hear that from you, in our sleep-deprived'ness haze. XDDD YOU CAN DU EET M-SAMA, I HAVE FAITH! *LOVES*

I was hiding under my blanket and talking into my pillow when we were talking that time XD. My parents were sleeping in the next room, but I really wanted to talk XD. So that's why, if I sounded odd. I think I had my retainer in too XD;.
