Photo Limbo: Japan Jobs

While my attempt at gainful employment in Japan via the JET Program didn’t pan out, I did spend some time browsing some other openings.

Clearly it can be abused, but it’s nice to be able to actually take the name you want by simply adding a last name to your character.

And finally:

Is it hot in here, or is it just me?

This is why I don’t make male characters.
