The Wild Finish

About two weeks and change before I leave Japan to go back to America (at first, I typed "home", but it isn't, really - I'm coming right back anyways after I graduate).

Still, work is never done. I got an email from a Ruth McCreery, a Democrat Abroad here in Japan, and she wants as many as possible to come out to a voter assistance event on Friday, in the hopes of getting more people overseas to vote despite the difficulties. You know, except for military personnel (actually, wouldn't know too much about them either, since the only soldiers I see are at the clubs, taking all the women away from us English teachers), I've never really met a Republican in Japan, so if we can produce voters in big numbers here in Japan and in other countries, I figure America would be a whole lot more blue than red. The event will be at the Yokohama Country and Athletic Club (http://www.ycac.or.jp), which is near Yamate Station on the Keihin-Tohoku Line. Drop by on Friday from 11AM if you have time - it IS Golden Week, after all.

The weekend I get back, and if you live in or near Boston, I will be taking up teaching Japanese at the anime cons again. We'll start with Anime Boston (http://www.animeboston.com) ; I will hold a two-hour class on Friday, May 26th from 1:30PM. I can only hope this one will be a lot more improved from the one I gave at Anime Central.

And hey, I'm gonna need a job when I get home, so if you're in the New York area and want to study and practice Japanese...
