Employment and The Holidays

leave a comment »

I have become a new person. In the last 6 months I’ve graduated from a four year private university with a bachelors in medical anthropology. I didn’t immediately find work but when I left school it was straight back to the good ole NYC and straight into the summer youth program working for minimum wage. I consider myself pretty lucky considering right at the end of the summer youth program I was interviewing for my next position and got a full time job in a physical therapy office. To be honest, I never thought receptionist work was in my future. It was truly heartbreaking to assume the dull, eventless routine working for people of equivalent character. My position has been hard for me, there is nothing I look forward to lately aside from quitting and moving on to bigger and greater things.

Employment wouldn’t be the centerfold of discussion if not for the time of year where I find myself in need of a position. It is almost impossible to find a job of significance during the holidays which is only making the season even more miserable for me. Seriously, job searching is not how you want to spend your holiday. I’d much prefer having a glamorous time with friends or a significant other but the end of school also marked the end of whatever type of social life I thought I had obtained. Not that I don’t try every so often now and then, but it’s been more dud then fun. I was even talking to a guy or two these last few months and I lost whatever energy I had left for foolishness. I would really love to sit and chat about my failure with finding an interesting and appealing member of the opposite sex but I would really need my friends around for me to be successful with my complaining.

The most important thing for me right now would be admission into the JET Program that I applied to earlier this month. That would give me the chance to teach English in Japan. And did I mention that it would be in Japan. Japan has been on my mind so much these last 6 months and it’s insane that with my constant thoughts my line sister, Dana, actually sent me an email randomly advertising the program. How does one really change the game of life? By leaving the country in my opinion. It’s a thrilling and frightening proposition but I would literally jump head first into it. What a leap towards satisfaction and happiness. This adult life is not (yet) glamorous, it’s not exciting and not progressing dramatically enough for me. I need to go to Japan.

Battle Studies – John Mayer

leave a comment »

I’d describe it as an updated and more personal view into his life than his previous honeybee blog, (Japanese Blogging Tool) which he sadly took down. I really love the videos man. I just watched a recent one – well kind of recent I’ve been doing nothing but play Sims 3 lately so I’m a little behind…in everything! – and he’s in Japan on a little getaway and it looks so serene and artistic and I’m just so jealous. And in love because how awesome is it that your favorite musician and person shares an interests of yours just as deeply. We’re kindred spirits and I love him. Uh…didn’t need to add that but who cares it’s obvious!He says | Seven songs in… lots going on. Took a week off and traveled Japan. Wanted to get really quiet so I could hear what my head was saying. Two words of advice: travel alone. Music via an 8am jetlag pop-awake and Native Instruments Acoustik Piano. I took a break from still photography and used a Panasonic HVX200 HD camera. I stayed still, let life move in front of me. Man, am I deep! |

I love how clear of an image he got through that camera. At Francis Lewis next year I could take take photography and such but not filming T_T. I don’t really mind actually because I will finally be learning guitar xD. YAYYAYYAY! Anyway back to black John Mayer. So throughout this extremely aesthetically pleasing video you’ll see the landscapes of Japan, John having a colorful tattoo filled in and an up-close and personal show with a few lucky people. But no sound. There is sound actually of John playing a piano number as background music but that’s all. The sound quality was very beautiful and made the video even more prize worthy. I have to repeat though that my favorite part really is his being in Japan because he loves the place. In my head I could feel the rainy and peaceful atmoshere around me and what is would feel like to enter that shoji lined hallway and paper screen doors. I’d be very happy.

My aunt found an ad in her flyer from church about a twelve day trip to Japan to visit the following

Tokyo
Kyoto
Mt. Fuji
Hakone
Takayama
Kanazawa

I don’t want to say much more about itout of fear of it worsening my chances of going. And that’s all I have to say about that. (lol Forest Gump line)

Besides that I was looking up these apartments in Manhattan for when I am completely finished with school, and wow they are expensive but not completely bad though. I’m sure I could afford it if I had a roommate or a really dear boyfriend. If I keep myself together long enough and don’t screw up in school I’ll be in one of the beautiful apartments in a few years (basically about 10). .*Sigh*. If Sister isn’t married by then maybe we can still move into a nice apartment together in Manhattan by then. Who really knows.
