I was living in in Japan as a long term resident for 4 years. I wasn't a teacher or a student there (although I did spend a couple years in Japan during college). I still work in the same position except I'm mostly based in Norcal these days, but fly to Japan at least once a month for my work.
My company provided insurance as a benefit so that probably might have been why I didnt need the NIS or something similar.
Ook, I really like Joji and Brian and i'm kinda surprised to see 88rising in the little snowflakes section of our forum...can someone please give me a sparknotes explanation as to why? i'm really confused...all I know about them is they're a pretty good management company that tries to bring asian talent into the mainstream (and from what I see, has done an excellent job at doing so). this photo .... is .... what.... it's just Brian posing with the BTS guys.... i don't get it....what's controversial about it?
The Twitter thread had me thinking, and, to not derail the twitter thread, i'd post it here:
Who ARE Kanadajin's friends that she still has? Like, the only people i can feasibly think of as her friend still would be that Kure Rola girl that seems to be her knight in shining armor, and Erika/Pandagoeswhateverhernameis. I can't think of anyone else.
Erika has a history of defending Mira vehemently before Mira became muslim, but seems like since Mira's muslim transformation, Erika kinda bowed out of her life. Anyone else we can think of? Because I honestly think she's pretty much isolated, at least in the Japan youtube community.
Hard to follow cuz of the back and forth and spam and people questioning rodi. Lets just ignore his motivations and appreciate him as the confirmation of pretty much what we all were thinking. He should. Seriously. Ok, let me try to summarize: She's paying for her visa, and she's been married since at least 2016 She is doing this as a means to get citizenship but the immigration office is always rejecting it. This muslim thing might be a sham, or confirming multiple personality disorder. Doing this to get Rodi who routinely rejects her. She's a broken faucet and keeps spilling things to him.
