    • Be a moderator! & Reports Announcement   03/07/19

      We're aware that PULL needs more moderation and attention, so we're actively looking to expand our mod crew! If you're a regular user and intend to stay this way, then rest assured that we're working on improving PULL for you. In order to do this, we rely on user reports, so I'd like to take this opportunity to ask everyone to report posts you think break a rule, disrupt discussion or shouldn't be allowed.  There is absolutely no concern over getting too many reports - we get a handful of reports per week. More reports would be great because it helps us figure out how our users want the forum to be - leaving criticism in threads doesn't make it easy for mods to find your opinions. Furthermore, don't worry about being a "snitch" or too harsh - a report doesn't mean action will be taken, that's up to the mods. A report really only tells us to look at the comment and to gauge the community atmosphere. Often times, peer pressure or established community atmosphere will dictate the direction a thread takes, and criticizing certain posts can be uncomfortable or downright futile when the majority disagrees with your view. This leads to groupthink and degradation of thread quality because the loudest/most active users get their way. So reporting is a way to quickly and anonymously (to other users) give feedback to the moderators. If we don't get this feedback, we think everyone's happy and there's no need for change. So use this feature as much as you'd like to help shape PULL into a more constructive community again. If you'd like to be a moderator: Click here for the application form.

    Japanese colleges are usually really really lenient on grading. An A can be 100-85 B 85-70 C 70-55 D 55-40. Most of grades are based on attendance and participation. It is really easy to do well and basically impossible to fail. If she fails out or loses her scholarship it means she had to have tried really hard to fail.

        She seems to treat other people (friends and esp. romantic partners) like crutches to the point that they can't handle the clinginess/ neediness and run away. She works so hard to be a bad bitch to hide her weaknesses/fears/insecurities. Everyone has weakness of all sorts, but a lot of people learn how to deal with them in a healthy way (talking with friends/therapists, by exercising, healthy eating/sleeping habits, and abstinence from all substances (including alcohol)). I think a lot of her habits are self destructive to the point that she has normalized it as a "healthy" part of her life. Things like anxiety and depression get worse with the use of alcohol and caffeine. Yet here she is every other night going to a bar and staying up until ungodly hours drinking and thirsting for low quality dick. You're not going to find anything good at a bar/club.
        On a side note: If she is serious about meeting a good man, she shouldn't date these gaijin fetishers who are constant bar/club goers. They seem to have low motivation, bad life habits and are all around flakey individuals. Even if she was in a more stable place in her life they wouldn't be a good match. If she really thinks herself to be a god she should stop letting these type of men into her life and also aspire to be the best version of herself instead of blaming everything else for her problems.

    I don't have personal experience but my understanding is that any time you want to stop taking psychotropic you should be working with a medical professional. Apparently a lot of side effects can happen and some of them are really severe/ harmful, and potentially worse than what they are supposed to be treating. Even if she doesn't want to take medicine anymore she really shouldn't just be taking matters into her own hands. Medicine can do some strange things if misused.

    You need a degree to teach English as a instructor under and instructor/ specialist in the humanities visa. However, she can work part time under a student visa and for freelance teaching of english you don't need a degree. Lots of men would love to pay her for "English lessons", that how she can get the big bucks even if her lessons are sub-par.

    Someone is credited as having been the editor, but I feel like whoever it was was not qualified. If this is the edited version, imagine what it was like before.

    A lot of Japanese students want to be a fashion/makeup/hair/influencer something, so her choice is pretty garden variety. Except for a few very competitive public schools (in japan public schools are more prestigious than private ones) they are basically a waste of money. Since her social media career is going pretty well she might be able to loop it in to some opportunities though.

    Fun fact another way to call a quiz in Japan is Sho-testo which literally translates as small test aka quiz. So maybe she hears that and doesn't understand the phrase so she thinks its an actual test and that she should get an hour for it....

    Sally Amaki is ethnically Japanese. I am sure her visa situation is completely different due to the fact that she is likely a Japanese citizen. Also Kenna doesn't have appeal to a Japanese audience. By Japanese standards her height, weight and body type are normal. Her appearance, while on the cute side is relatively normal. She doesn't have any special skills (singing, dancing, or modelling) and she has no esteemed college degree which she can use on some game show to answer questions (like some shows where graduates of top universities compete for prizes). There is nothing special or unique about her that doesn't already exist here. There are plenty of people in Japan with better Japanese (including of course Japanese citizens), better attitudes and more drive to get the limited opportunities that do exist here. Therefore, she is not going to get a contract to be a talent or idol. It's not even a possibility.

    People only have JLPT level N◯◯ if they pass the JLPT. Otherwise it's all conjecture. People can be a fluent speaker in Japanese but if they can't read kanji up to a certain level they can't pass. Likewise you can pass the JLPT at the highest level and not be able to speak a word.

    She didn't actually become a model though. Most of the "work" that she has done seems to be portfolio shoots for the photographer. She isn't selling any products. She doesn't make the cut for models in Japan, nor does Kenna for that matter. The actual models working in Japan work for foreign/ partner agencies, are super beautiful, thin and around 5' 9"-11". The market is saturated.

    I really wonder at what point they decide to commit so much to the shoop that they become separate human beings from their internet persona.

    I would say near impossible unless you prepare every single meal you consume from scratch. Otherwise, most premade or restaurant foods contain at least one animal product, even if they do not include actual meat. For the same reasons, vegetarianism is also a rather difficult lifestyle to maintain.

    As for that station in particular the walls are actually white and everything else is grey so its really heavily filtered.
