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.

I have a friend who is currently living the dream teaching English in Japan, and recently she got to be on national television! The way she described it was that white people are kind of viewed as toys in Japan, and "Japanese TV is pretty bad about twisting or falsifying the contents of interviews with foreigners. ". But hey, if you've got a moderately thick skin and don't take things too personally, it can be fun. She's having fun, you can have fun, fucking go for it!

My pointless thought of the day was that every tiny point of light in the sky is a fusion reaction of unimaginable magnitude beamed across distances of unimaginable magnitude and I almost fell off my bike.

I would reccomend teaching in South Korea instead of Japan if you're open to it. Feel free to pm me about TESL work.

a trans autistic mentally ill homeless teen girl sent me a message on tumblr about how bad it was that yet another popular funny tumblr blog turned out to be run by fascists, and it took everything in my power not to tell her that I'm  neither popular nor funny

Was telling my friend about the F Plus and he remarked that the name sounded like a fetish group. I just shrugged and said 'half right'.
