Thanks for the advice guys. I've been eyeballing jobs in the US as well. My family really wants me back there (this was before the quake) and everything. There are a number of companies which speak exclusively English in the offices and everything (Rakuten, Uniqlo, and I think Sony), but like I said before, I missed he boat for new hires with those companies. Right now a lot of companies are targeting foreigners, but as far as entry level jobs, I'm not totally sure. I...
Well, I thought I should check in. I was out doing a rehearsal for a fashion show that was supposed to happen today, when the quake hit. I was talking to a German dude who hadn't been here very long when everything started kinda rocking. At first it felt like a little one like we often have and I reassured the guy it was nothing, when it didn't stop quickly I knew something was up. Then it really started shaking hard, easily the strongest quake I have ever felt, words can...

Thanks for the well wishes.

One of my weaknesses, I dont speak enough polite/business Japanese, so many jobs are ruled out right there. While it certainly would be a boon to my cause to be totally fluent, many large Japanese companies are targeting foreigners and switching their official inner office language to English. Though that is not to say I...

Well, I graduated back in December and have been job hunting and so far it sucks pretty hard. Im having trouble finding any jobs that are available for anyone without years of experience (I'm looking in Japan and Singapore), and unfortunately I missed the boat when it comes to Japanese companies hiring new grads as they get hired about a year before they start. I am considering other countries at this point (would like to stay in Asia), but either way I need to get a job...
Went to "Hard to Explain" Vol 72 or 62 or some shit with a girl I often see at a my favorite bar, hung out and talked to her for a bit but then kinda shook her. This was the same party I went to for Christmas, and guess what, the same thing happened with a different girl. Made out in a corner for a while and she was all up in my shit. Her friend recognized me from the time before and knew me as the guy who did the same thing, haha. I ended up taking a girl down when she...
Good luck! Skateistan is one of my favorite NPOs and they do great work. As for clothes, most people wear normal western style clothes (think jeans and shirts). Stick with that and you will be fine. Kabul is a moderately safe place, but I believe you will still get some security escort for the most part. There are a couple luxury hotels in the city (you will likely be put up in company dorms or something though), one is known for getting attacked all the time, the others...
Maybe offer Siphon Coffee for the plain stuff. I have been drinking a lot lately, and straight its pretty damn good (though the blend may come into play here too). Much better than your average cup of drip crap. Looks impressive/like a meth-lab too
