Making My Stand

My particular eikaiwa has a policy; upon finishing your contract you can choose to accept the cash equivalent of a ticket home, or the ticket itself. Ladies and gentlemen, conservatives and liberals, chikans and chijyos... I will be making my stand here. Despite the fact I have not yet secured a job offer with a visa sponsorship, I will be holding onto hope until the last possible day. I have chosen to receive the Yen in lieu of a trip home. Keeping Pace in Japan will continue. In the event I do have to leave the country, I can always travel to China to visit my brother, and return with a tourist visa. Hey, I'll actually qualify for a Rail Pass...
