About My "JET Blog"

I had a LiveJournal for many years. I recently decided it was stupid to have a blog and I deleted it. I still think blogs are pretty stupid (unless you're a very interesting person).

Here's the catch:
I'm going to Japan for a year with the JET Program and I want a record of my daring deeds of do. I also want to be sure I keep close with the many people I'm going to regret leaving behind. I think it will help me to adjust to living in a strange place. I also think I finally have something interesting to say on the internet.

So that's what this thing is all about. It's not going to be an "OMG look how weird Japan is" blog, and its not going to be a boring blow-by-blow of everything I do over there, but I guess how exciting it is will really be up to you. This blog is just going be a record of a time I'm going to spend in a place. There will be pictures, there will be scholarly essays, and (god-willing) there will be songs.
