You know, I remember watching George of the Jungle when I was a kid, the live action movie with Brenden Frasier, not the cartoon. In the movie were two poachers who were living in Africa. Well, they got caught and the African government deported them. I remember thinking that deportation was not really such a bad punishment for poaching animals. But I had no idea back then all the effort required for living in another country. And suddenly, if I don’t get my butt in gear, I could be facing possible deportation myself.
On the sixth of October, I will have officially been in Japan for one year! Yay! But that also means that I have to get my visa renewed because it was only good for one year. Boo! So, I have almost all the necessary paperwork, I just lack the motivation to do it. So, today is visa day. After I eat breakfast and get ready, I’m going to start the journey to renewal. If only that were a slogan for a spa instead of a trip to the immigration office. And it’s an overcast day, so that does not add to the motivation levels.
But you’ve gotta do what you’ve gotta do to keep your job and avoid illegal activity. So, off I go!
