Tokyo Part 2


Hi,
So I got the job. I will be working for a company called JP something... Anyway I am working in nursery schools around Tokyo. I teach for max 4 hours each day but get paid for 8 cause of travelling time! I teach at one school in the morning and another in the afternoon all around Tokyo. The pay is good. I have two months probation during which I make about $2,500 a month and then it will go up to $2,700. Not crazy amounts of money but not bad. It is more then I make now with Nova but then again I am not living in Tokyo so my living expenses are not so high. Tomorrow Mhairi is meeting me and we are looking for apartments.
I am of course so happy just to be in Tokyo. This city lifts my spirits like crazy! As soon as the train starting pulling in I got excited like a little kid.
I am chilling at my hotel right now and I dont know what I will do tonight.
We shall see....
Oh and ash, I saw some pics from the white trash party.... looking good. lol
Later dudes

I am soooo happy you went to Tokyo...it will make all the difference in your year. I was always so happy just walking around. You have to go to Harajuku Park on Sunday and go shopping down the main steet near it...tonnes of cafes and the SHOES ARE AMAZING!!
