The reason I started this blog.
Oh, to live the working life of an JET! To work within the board of education of your community. To not have half of your pay trimmed by your dispatchment agency. To live in the soft lapping beachwaves of bureaucracy – good pay and a small froth of diplomatic immunity washes over your feet and cleans off the sand, keeps the bugs away.
I am not with JET anymore.
I have my pay deducted for fees claimed by a company staffed with non-experts unaffiliated directly with any boards of education or other government agency, which means the drive is for money: my money! MINE MINE MINE.
And meanwhile women continue to disappear on the Highway of Tears*.
