"Part Deux" will chronicle my adventure from start to finish of my application process toward the JET (Japanese Exchange and Teaching) Program and (hopefully) my life in Japan under the JET Program. This blog is meant to inform the audience about life in Japan through MY experience and MY perspective. With that said, if you have any questions regarding Japan, the JET Program, and something I may have posted please let me know.
It's been well over a year since my last post and a LOT has happened... I'll try to write about the MAIN points...
Back to the Basics:
It's been so long I kind of have to get back into the swing of why I started this blog... and it was to share my experience from start to beginning in the JET Program or Programme, whichever you prefer... Also, the blog was a place for those interested in the JET Program to gain some insight into what life COULD be like under the JET Program...

June- My Grandfather visits and begins his month long research on the Japanese Education System in my town.
- My Wife moves in and after nearly 3 years of living a part, we finally begin living together in Hokkaido.
There was sooo much more going on in between, but it'd be a very long and boring blog.
Just sprinkle in "Snowboarding Snowboarding Snowboarding" anywhere between the months of November and March.
This was just a brief explanation as I will be reviving the LonelyIsland VLOGs... After two years of hiatus, it will be back up and running... hopefully soon.
Episode 16: will be a brief explanation of what happened over the past year.
Episode 17: Will be a brief explanation about JET Transfers and what to expect and what happened to me...
Episode 18: Will cover filing for marriage in Japan and somethings you may encounter / tips.
Stay Tuned... I promise I'll get these up! After all I've revived all my video data and can get things rolling quickly!
