Well the consulate didn't respond to my email, but since it IS October, I am officially putting the final nail into the "going on JET" coffin. I will NOT be going on JET this year.
I will, however, be leaving for Japan on November 18 at 7:15 AM. It is a Friday flight. I'll arrive in Japan on Saturday afternoon.
Emily is going to meet me in Tokyo and then we are going to head back to Takaoka.
This is going to be exciting.
