Also joined a Buddhist temple in NYC, everyone was so nice and polite. I really need to work on my Japanese. I took two semesters of it but that seems to be too long ago.
I don't think that the transcripts have to be within a certain timeline, so if you aren't/won't be taking any classes, you should be able to order them now or soon. My suggestions is to do what I did: get a folder, write JET STUFF on it in HUGE LETTERS, place it somewhere secure (mine is in a fireproof safe with all my other OCD lists), check that it is still there obsessively, place all JET related items in said folder as you get them up until you mail them out, and then ignore the jokes at your expense when your family realizes that your OCD comments were evidently real and not just jokes. Or, that's just me >.> But that is exactly what I have done. But, as mentioned at the end of the list, I have OCD (my psych major friend happily diagnosed me, since I refuse to pay anyone to tell me things that I already know), so this may be a little excessive
Normal people may just get a folder, write JET Stuff in normal sized letters, place there things in said folder, and place the folder somewhere safe, like a drawer or on a desk.
Also, just for the record, the facebook group is awesome ^_^ It was such a great idea; I wish I had thought of it, so that I could claim to be some great leader of 2013 JET applicants
But, now I want to know who people are!!!! I'm so nosy
I like knowing people ^^;
I wish that I had access to a temple, a language center, anything cool like that. I enjoy Rosetta Stone, but I really need a way to practice my n00bish Japanese >.>
Lastly, and mostly not JET related, I just bought Rune Factory: Frontier and it is consuming my life. I certainly don't mind playing TONS of video games, but I probably ought to do something else that actually makes me think (though it has me doing lots of math, stupid runeys). So, I would love some new ideas for blogging about in my JET blog, some essays (or drafts or lists or anything) to look over or just somebody to talk to ^_^ Also, I think that we should make more use of the fb chat thing with the group
