Japan does a lot of stuff right. Like really cool cell phones, and robots. But no country is perfect, and one of Japan’s flaws, at least in my biased eyes, is the existence of the “foreigner card.” Every foreigner (duh) moving to the country has to get one before they can do things like buy a cell phone or set up a bank account. Most pressingly, and most important for what you are reading now, I can’t get the Internet in my apartment until I get said card. And that takes about two weeks. What do they expect me to do, actually socialize with people???
So yeah, posts may be somewhat infrequent in the short-term. I’ll probably still write, but entries may not be posted until later on, in one big annoying rush of text. Heads up.
