It’s been a long, strange road to get here.
I’ve been trying no less than five years to get my ass over to Japan. I started back when anime was Japanimation and iPods were cases you’d put your contact lenses in. Everything thwarted me. Film school vetoed study abroad. Effects career complicated work abroad. Personal life muddied travel abroad.
Let’s see, does this work?

ILM pwnz j00.
I’m moving to Japan.
I was accepted as a late addition to the JET program — so late that I actually missed the orientation. I will be leaving at the end of July, although I don’t know a specific date, what level english I’ll be teaching, or where I’ll be placed, just yet. I’m going to try to head out to Louisville for at least a week before I leave, although things are kind of crazy here just now.
