Basically, Leizel will stay on JET a fifth year and I will not...however I will continue to live with her here in Mie and accomplish other things, hopefully making money in the process.
I'll be spending some money too though - big money - on proper Japanese school. I've been eyeing a school in nearby Aichi ever since my first year of JET so I'll finally get to go. Working 8-5 during the week made it impossible to go but now I'll be able to go fulltime for at least a few months.
Other than that, I'll be doing as much private English conversation and translation as I can get my hands on.
I should also be able to make a visit home during this time, probably in September of this year.
So it'll be a slightly risky year, not having a set income, but it's a fairly safe risk.
"What happened to Grad school?" August 2011 - for sure.
