Hi, just a friend request cos I resonated with your pictures.. Very Dorian Gray actually. I love Oacar Wilde and like your coat in your profile pic. My Great great x a few grandfather was prime minister of U K when Oscar was on trial and he was said to be a sympathisiser. I don't know too much about the Isle of white except that Bear Grylls came from there. You remind me of the self portraits of Gustav Corbet. Do you know them?
Hi Jon. I came over here and after 7 months married my girlfriend. I've been here for 7 or so years. I'm now divorced, good friends with my ex and living alone. I'm 44 dude and Japan is great. It's a totally unique place, in that foreigners are treated by the opposite sex like rock stars, especially at your nice young age. It might sound a bit shallow to say that, but the bottom line is it's easy to make friends and get students to teach English. Again especially for young, good looking guys like yourself. So I recommend Japan totally as an adventure and then just see what happens. At your age I was into the South of France, and then Florida from my mid 20's. Japan at any age, especially yours, is ideal. Also, if you are good looking, and your pic suggests that you are, (I'm not now, but I was told I was when I first came here) then it's easier to get work too. Why? Because most students tend to be women and bosses consider good looking teachers to be good for business.
Pronounce your T's and S's (Japanese often forget them) and watch your P's and Q's and you'll have a lot of fun. See you.
Nice to meet you! I live in Tokyo. Japan is very nice country and its very easy to live in Tokto for raw vegan. There are small veggy`s shop everywhere, if you dont have time, go to 24H open Famaly Mart or Seven Eleven, they sale fresh salads, apples and bananas. ;) Online shopping, rawfood restaurants and raw food meet up groups. You will like your life here! Welcome to Japan!
I've been to Japan three times now for a total of 6 weeks. Unfortunately I was there to bear witness to the slaughter of dolphins and not necessarily to make friends. I spent most of my time in Taiji and Kii-Katsuura , small towns on the east coast in Wakayama prefecture. As well I traveled up through Nagoya, Nagano and Fukushima prefecture. I spent some time in Otsuchi in Iwate prefecture during the time of the Tsunami. Even though I was there to expose a horrific cultural practice, for the most part I was received in kindness. The vast majority of the Japanese people are unfailingly kind and generous. Japan is abundant in citrus, japanese veggies, persimmons, and bananas from the Philippines. You won't run into decent mangos, melons, or dates but you'd be very close to countries abundant in tropical fruit.
Japan is accessible in terms of public transport but it is also very expensive. The cost of food and living is comparable to Canada.
I hope this helps! It truly is a wonderful country and would be even better if the slaughter would end.
Hey there! I totally understand where you are coming from. Have been feeling the same way now that I am enjoying some down time before school starts again. I don't have MSN, but do have Gmail and Skype, though, it's: " Lyanneheart " for my Skype name and Gmail is email@example.com. (My school has a connection via gmail). What's your info?
Thank you for the Welcoming. No i dont have any artwork online, i have only just started really so just practicing and playing, nothing like yours. Hopefully ill get there though. Did you just practice or have you done any course?
Yep, I definitely hear where you're coming from. I didn't have my facebook profile on here for a long time, but then one guy added me and I realized how great it was to see that coming up in my news feed instead of drinking pics etc. My willpower doesn't always last in the "real" world, so I realized I needed to be a little more proactive about getting to know more fruities. I think a lot of us here just need to start taking more steps after the "add as friend" button.
Thanks for the add. Feel free to message me or leave comments whenever you feel like it. I'm also in the skype group on here. This diet is great, but a little less awesome when you don't have friends to share the fun with!
