I just ate Indian food in Tokuyama! It was amazing. It was the best meal Ive had since Ive been here. I decided one of the cooks is my new boyfriend.

So, we still havent been paid. The President of the company is missing. And now it's getting real, when friends say they have no money for coffee and they literally have none. I'm still looking for jobs, I have a lot of work to do with that, but they're turning off our internet soon for lack of payment, so that will make it very difficult.

If I dont quit my job and the company goes bankrupt I will receive 80% of the wages due to me in 6 to 12 months. And then I dont know if they'll deposit that into my bank account, or mail the money, and to where. I dont know how I would access the money outside of Japan. I dont know if I should keep going, or devote myself to finding new work full-time.

My belly is full and happy.

What happened to suicide? We certainly discarded that option in a hurry.

well guess u have to ask yourself can you afford to wait 6-12 month for your 1st pay check? ( that you may never get) or should seriouly start looking for work or pack it all in and come home to another cold Boston winter, by the time you get back all the celebrating for the red soxs will be over. Isnt life fun. Never a dull moment when you live in a foreign land.
