I’m really excited because (drum roll plz?)…
I’ve been offered an internship with Metropolis Magazine in Tokyo!
As soon as I finish my contract with JET, I’ll head north and spend two months at Metropolis doing a little of everything involved in magazine publishing—both print and online—which is exactly what I want to be doing right now.
I love my little inaka city, but I’m very ready to be among the bright lights again. And if it’s bright lights I want, where better than Tokyo?
At the end of those two months, they’re placing me in Yamaguchi Prefecture, at the very bottom of Honshu, for a further three or four weeks.
I don’t really believe in luck, I believe that hard work and good timing are the main factors in getting what I want in life, but sometimes things line up so neatly that I really have to attribute it to luck or leprechauns or whatever.
I will be sad to leave my wonderful life here in Takamatsu, but I’m ultra-excited to be taking this huge and exciting step.
