So in more personal, non-depressing news -

A while back I entered the JET Program Video Contest with my wee vid Tanegashima - This is Our Island. I was lucky enough to win one of the prizes and get invited to the 30th Anniversary Commemorative Ceremony???

Here’s an NHK World segment on the contest that I did an interview for (AGH, MY FACE ON TV). /o\



And an interview for the local Japanese paper. \o/



Also, photos under the cut of me being awkward while getting awarded in Tokyo and stammering my way through this thank-you speech -


I’d like to thank CLAIR and the other Ministries here today, not only for this award, but for providing me with the ability to support myself and my family through the JET Program. I also want to thank the other participants of the Video Contest, many of whom have skill and talent that leaves me humbled.

But most of all, I’d like to thank the many people from Tanegashima who dedicated their time and support to the creation of this video. If there’s anything I’m most proud of tonight, it’s that I can try to give back to the community that has given me so much.

So, this is for them. This is for my students, who I love for being brilliant and for being themselves and for driving me straight up the wall every day. And lastly, this is for my mother, who makes all things possible. Thank you.

Thank you!!

I glued those shoes back together so I could wear them for this, lol, but later regretted it when I had to run across the whole hotel to make the interview. PAIN. FOOT PAIN. /o\ My feet hurt so much that I literally went to the reception in my slipper socks and hoped no one noticed. >.>;
