I'm still waiting to hear back from JET. From what I understand, it should be coming via mail/email anyday now. That's the name of the game here, hurry up and wait. They ought to call it the Japan Patience Building Program, cause that's all I've gotten out of it so far. Even after I hear about possible acceptance, I still have to wait to hear from them about placement. It gets a little ridiculous after a while and it's starting to eat away at my nerves.
I recently heard that three girls from my high school class are getting married. You know you are getting older when your peers start getting hitched. It was definitely a strange feeling to hear about them. To be honest, I feel weird even typing about marriage at all. As for the girls, I say good for them, although from my perspective it's tough because every time someone gets married, that dating pool starts to shrink a little bit more you know? I thought the trend was to marry later these days, but maybe not.
North Carolina finally started their lottery today with scratch-off tickets. I'm glad NC got the lotto, I always thought it was kind of backwards that all the other East Coast states had one but NC didn't. That said, now that it's here I probably won't play it as much as I thought. I work too hard for my money to just toss it away like that. But as a little fun here and there, well I suppose that can't be too bad.
I blame Chris Turner and Capcom for my current gaming addiction, Resident Evil 4. Man, that game is awesome. I'll spare you the details but it's about the most intense experience you'll get in any type of entertainment. Capcom deserves blame for making the game, and Chris because he keeps egging me on with stories of epic boss battles and infinite rocket launchers. I had a rough go of it tonight, died a whole bunch of times. It's all due to the hordes of axe-throwing zombies. Maybe they're the ones who have my JET acceptance letter?
