My favorite internet meme

 

I already think I'm awesome. I don't let folks opinions on the net who have never met me swell or deflate my enlarged ego.:D

It will stay swollen.

 

My Society is English teachers now :pand I already rose to the top. The other society is one I made my stripes in years ago and folks know me. Facebook messages (from enemies) to people on my friend list about my past in an attempt to damage me only enhanced my rep. Mothers at PTA meeting complaining that I released their child from my school for failure to live up to the student contract was intended to damage me but only enhanced me among the education mothers. They don't want a friendly teacher that makes their kids feel like they have a Gaijin friend. They want scores. Eiken tests/TOEIC. They want something they can see. 

 

My point is.. what some see as a weak point others see as a strength. People forget that the world is not viewed only through their eyes. 

I run my own business.

I make my own schedule

I get paid well

 

 

Life is good but

Chuck....even putting my name in a post with him has put my entire life at risk....thanks for that:D

 

 

**Waits for Chuck to kick in door**

 

 CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v80), quality = 100

... bro you'd better get your Chuck Norris shot... or maybe you already have it cuz seriously... dudes your secrect father yo... it's so simmilar it's not even funny 

 

speaking of which, I LOVE Boondocks S02 Ep 04 so much xD I've watched it 3 times in a row now xD, so funny

10% of the folks last time I went were clearly plain clothes detectives. That is the place to get fake drugs,real,drugs and everything else.

 

That Nazi dude.

 

He seems to forget or ignore in Hitlers ideal aryanism world he would be (guy in pic)  a forced laborer or exterminated because his blood would pollute the aryan blood line.

Kinda like a black dude dressing up in KKK garb.

He looks like his stuff is in order and everything was ironed and starched just right but he still looks like a fool.

 

The Nazis have zero meaning here. Japan isn't very good at either knowing about or even wanting to know about what goes on in other countries, unless it is something scary then they stop taking holidays there.

An Elementary Schoolgirl with a train runnin through her legs kinda trumps it:(

 

Fake, but other equally weird stuff exists here that what is in that picture is almost believable. It is a society of crazy contradictions.

When Japanese people do stuff, it is all or nothing. When they do cosplay, they do it seriously. When they do stuff with metal, it is done completely, with everything they can put into it. If you wish to learn the old ways of the samurai, you have to sign with your blood, still. Watch that film on the 893 the guy made over a number of years. The younger generation too -- they go to middle school and join a club, and their lives are devoted to school and club and their home becomes a hotel where they eat and sleep.

One thing I learned: Students are never a problem, but mothers often are.

There was one unpleasant experience I had in Tokyo with my colleague. Just unwelcome, bizarre. That place is not necessarily unbiased.

So when you go to Japan you may not be necessarily be welcome in all the places like I experienced.

The airports are open daily and I am free to leave anytime I like.

 

That said the allowance excuses and the like for stuff like this (there is a sign like this 100 meters from my home...at a bar of course) is amazing.

Japan is a very wonderful and flawed place (Sounds like America or any other country)

Sometimes folks come here with really rose tinted glasses and are very shocked and leave before their contract expires because being a minority and feeling like your getting the treatment like one in the negative way whether it's real or imagined becomes too much for many to handle.

Yeah, I knew that was a fake but it has a kinda symbolism that is appropriate. The Child pron laws in Japan are an epic case of insanity.

Posses (O.k.):blink:

Make (no)

Sell/Share (no)

 

How can you posses if someone didn't share or sell it to you or you made it....both violations of the law. 

 

Whuuuuu????

 

 

 

 

 

 

Parents. Can barely control their child and get upset when a teacher cannot handle 35 of their precious ones. 

I feel sorry for Public School teachers. In Yamaguchi they have no backing and they get thrown under the bus while a kid disrupts an entire class...and is moved to the next grade even if they missed half the School semester.

 

Rinse and repeat all the way to graduation.

 

Love Japan but I am not wearing tinted glasses. Accepting it's weak points allows more energy to enjoy it's strong points. Folks ignoring one or the other end up with too much stress.

Yeah. I'm not gonna get into the details as others are famously doing that. Someone has to fight the fight. This is just a diary thread.

I experienced the discrimination first hand, this was in the late 90's.

Nice one ^

 

One of the very few threads in the Members Lounge that's actually enjoyable and very intriguing. Way to go! Keep doing what you're doing. Love the ''G-thang'', experiences, thoughts and pictures you're putting up. Japan's ladies are some of the prettiest in the world too. And no I'm not referring to the stockist. I've had a special thing for Japan for a long time but reading some of the things said are helpful in opening the eyes. In the back of my mind I'm like I can still see it happening going there at least for a little while.
