Affordable Dog Sitter in Saitama

Affordable Dog Sitter in Saitama

Pet hotels in Japan can be really expensive. The bigger your pet is, the higher you pay for the accommodation. You may find one that’s not that pricey but the downside of it is that your pet dog will be caged for a long period of time. I know it for sure based on experience. Whenever my husband and I go on a trip without our furry buddy, we’re left with no choice but to leave her at a nearby pet hotel. As much as I feel sorry for her for the inconvenience but it’s just how it goes living in a place where you don’t have any relatives or friends live close by.

If you have a dog and you feel the same way as I do, I offer you my services. While you’re away, I can watch your beloved dog for you at our place. Unlike at a hotel, your doggy will be free to walk around our place under supervision. I’ll also take them out for a walk at least twice a day. I’ll pamper them with lots of love just like my own pooch.

If you’re looking for a safe and happy place for your dear dog to stay when you’re not around, look no further. Let me do the job for you at an affordable cost. Feel free to contact me for more details.

YOLO JAPAN: A legit job listing site for foreigners in Japan

YOLO JAPAN: A legit job listing site for foreigners in Japan

Not so long ago, I signed up for this website without high expectations. I was just searching for online gigs when the name came up alongside a few sites that I’ve mentioned here before. Making an account seemed to not hurt so I went for it. What makes it pretty easy to navigate is that it provides language options which include English, Chinese, Korean, Vietnamese, Portuguese, and as expected, Japanese. Even if my Japanese is still far from business level, there’s no need for me to consult any translating app when reading the given job information. If you’re the same as me or you have just started learning Japanese, don’t fret, they’ve got you covered.

It’s amazing that through YOLO JAPAN, one can apply for a full-time or part-time employment without submitting a full CV or cover letter. Searching for jobs in a foreign country can be nerve-wracking and the same goes for preparing a resume written in Japanese or even English. Instead of having to describe and sell yourself in a formal written form, a self-introduction video feature allows you to make an impression. Although it’ll only take about 5 minutes to record, I haven’t made one yet as I’m still trying to figure things out. To apply as an English instructor or not is an ongoing battle. Some of the listed non-teaching jobs actually interest me, however, they seem unsuitable for me for the time being in terms of the Japanese level requirement and location. The cool thing though is that I can still collect rewards when I share the listings with people who’ll apply for the job offers.

Let’s land a job and earn extra income in a legal way! You can sign up here!

Meanwhile, I go through the other opportunities (and the main reason why I joined) like taking surveys or sharing experiences on social media in exchange for rewards such as gift cards or cash. As a matter of fact, I received my first rewards (2 Amazon gift cards) last month which made me believe how reliable this site is. Big or small, they keep their word. Excited to get more! It’s not just about receiving, it’s also about giving. In taking part in surveys, you’re contributing to those who are carrying out some research and spreading useful information. Furthermore, isn’t it wonderful to try out new products, attend events and get paid for sharing your experiences with others? What an enjoyable way to earn some extra income!

What it Feels Like Studying Japanese in my 20s

What it Feels Like Studying Japanese in my 20s

It’s harder than I thought. Sometimes, I feel like I’m no longer capable of learning it because perhaps my brain doesn’t work like it used to anymore. Is it really due to the fact that I’m not getting any younger (going 29 this year)? Is it the language itself? Or is it just a lack of motivation? Living here should be enough motivating force for me, but it’s not how I feel. I have this dream of speaking Japanese fluently so I could work in a field where my language ability is required. How challenging it would be, I said to myself.

Before I came here, I felt the excitement thinking about learning the language but the feeling started to dwindle the moment I saw the big picture. I feel like I’m facing a big rock. Breaking it into pieces is a stupid thing to do, I thought. Why would I let myself be in that situation when I could just make a turn and walk away from it? But then again, it’s the only way to get to where I would want to be.

Japanese is quite intimidating. Memorizing hundreds of kanji, remembering words that are sometimes difficult to pronounce, grasping grammatical rules that are sometimes confusing are wearing me down. It may sound like I’m complaining, but I’m not. I don’t want to come across as a whiner. I’m only stating facts that some people may not agree with. It’s no concern of mine. What concerns me is the fact that I’ve been losing the fire that ignites me to study the language even when I’ve been given the privilege to learn it. Knowing the root of it is what I’m trying to find out.

I don’t want to put blame on anything. I guess it’s just me. Maybe this is just a period that’s trying to give me a lesson. Maybe this is the part of a song playing on air that’s hard to catch but when you listen to it again and again, you realize that it’s actually a beautiful song. Okay then, I’ll let it play on repeat until it makes sense to me.

If there’s anyone out there that shares the same sentiment, hang in there!
