I was at school and I was thinking about what if I wanted to teach in Asia as a career, and somehow that train of thought led me to "I have to look up and see whether there's an /r/gaijin once I get home". At first I was expecting just a bunch of shitposts about how it's not like how my japanese animes said it was, but then I thought about it more and I realized it might be a decent support network for foreigners living in Japan, as, to my understanding, it can be a very difficult and at times unfriendly society to acclimate to.Unfortunately it is just shitposts including videos of people eating japanese snack food and going "oooh woooow it's not the same as this country i live in several thousand miles away" and another one of someone getting a wild deer drunk.It looks like /r/japanlife is a better subreddit for what I was hoping for, but even that has a thread asking for good places to listen to "anime music".I'm scared of traveling and I don't know how well I'd actually do in the country even if I do learn the language or how well I'd do on my own, but I'd like to teach English there. There are other people talking about this goal in the japanlife subreddit, but japan as a society can be very xenophobic from what I've heard and I want to teach students that foreigners aren't people you need to be scared or distrustful of. I don't know. It's 1:30 am and I haven't slept well recently, but this is a life goal that feels good and isn't totally out of my reach.Wrought, March 01, 2018, 11:33:33 pm
If I don't get out of bed, the day can't really start. That's how it works, right?Sanguinary Novel?, March 05, 2018, 06:50:12 am
