Also, university has just restarted for the year, so new posts may be less frequent. But on the positive side, I got a new ID card today. My previous one was awful. They somehow managed to transfer my passport photo onto it. Big round glasses, a non-smile. I had recently had my haircut too. It was a ghastly image. One of my friends commented that I looked like a serial killer. My more recent passport photo was better as it didn't have the big glasses, but I shaved beforehand and didn't notice I had cut myself so there's a couple of blotches just underneath my chin. But if anyone asks, I just say that I like pro-wrestling sooooo much I decided to blade for my passport photo (not even the wildcard is that dedicated! Anyway, they took a new photo today. It's not too bad. I'm smiling so that's a positive. I wore a dalek shirt but the photo taker zoomed into the face so the dalek cannot be seen.
So I just mentioned university. Are you wondering what I'm studying? Probably not, but I'll tell you anyway. I'm doing a Bachelor of Science. Majoring in Ecology and Environmental Science. I have already got a Bachelor or Arts in Japanese too. I completed that, waited a year (to experience the rugby world cup being hosted here in New Zealand) then tried to find employment in Japan. I wanted to go there to build on my language skills and become fluent enough to just it in a job. To get into Japan I would have to be teaching. I'm a shy Whoer so I flunked all the interviews. Eventually I accepted a teaching internship in China for five months, reasoning that it would look good on the CV and maybe get into Japan afterwards. I was substandard, though at the second school I was at I was ok. All in all I realised that teaching was not for me and that I probably wouldn't be able to get a job with my intermediate Japanese, so I returned to university to study
