I hear the Tokyo police are doubling down getting rid of these gangs and that they've sent kids with watches to deal with all the yokais.

We don't know yet. It's a promise we made to my stepdaughter who is a huge Japanophile. We'll likely make plans as to where to go specifically and for how long once that time gets a bit closer.

I drew my friend, Red. It took 9 hours. Looks terrible, but much better than what I was expecting considering I don't draw or practice art in any way.

Aye. Funniest thing was seeing some Japanese rockers forced to do the silly-*** dance from the show on live television the other year on the Kohaku(New Years Eve music festival).

Looks like on October 9th I'll be taking my first trip to Asia. First to China for a day, then the remainder of the week somewhere in Japan. It's work related thoug, so not likely be able to go much of anywhere beyond certain places.

I'm sure Sogoro will bend whatever direction it takes to hook up with you.

I live 10 minutes from Sky Tree and the Kaminarimon(Lightning Gate), if you have time and want me to show you some of the places I know in Tokyo I'm free on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursdays during the time you'll be here. If you don't have time to hang out then definitely try visiting Shinjuku and go to the Metropolitan Government Building. They have free observatory at the top of the tower. Good place to see Tokyo from above for free. Sky Tree and Tokyo Tower are quite expensive to go up.

Looks like the place is relatively close to Akihabara. I don't know details about how long I'll be staying or what my schedule is like though. Sounds like the Japanese company wants to some off some R&D facilities they own. I have no idea what city in China I'll be headed to. While I'm interested in Japan, I can't say I'm as interested in the China part.

Last time I went to another country for an industrial tour, it was to Italy, left on a Saturday night, got there Sunday morning, then left Wednesday morning. They tend to be very short and focused events. The host brought us to a nice little cathedral on a big hill, and we drove over toward the Venice area. Had a few meals. Saw people sitting down at a nice restaurant, nice suits and dresses, and eating pizza.

I've been here ever since (not living there, man...working there). Find something worthwhile to you and do that. Even if you start as a volunteer, do it. Get out of your own head and do something for someone else.


I was in the shower just now, and I thought about this.

It occurred to me that I'm never happy unless I'm making someone else happy, or helping someone else in some way or another. --whether it be something like helping them to move furniture, or writing a paper. When I was running my server, it was a thousand times easier for me to help someone else with theirs than it was to work on my own, for myself, even when they were the competition. It was also on the server that I realized: The best of times are when I'm talking to people, offering the best advice I can, and helping them work out the problems they're having by helping them see things from different angles.

I touched on this a bit in a thread I made about two years ago regarding an online friend I had become particularly connected with. That thread had become a back and forth argument over whether or not it was appropriate considering my friend's age, who was 11 at the time (and yes, I still talk to her.) At the time I thought perhaps I could not relate to people my own age, and some suggested I seek out jobs working with children. Then came Pokemon Go, and suddenly I found myself completely surrounded by literally hundreds of adults with similar with similar interests and mindsets to my own, not a single one more than a year or two younger than myself-- of which I would have never known existed without the game. I was never interested in working with kids, but because of the individual, my friend Red-- it became an issue of age. In reality, she could have been 24, or 37, or 115 when I met her, and the outcome would have been the same, only less dramatic and awkward. Talking to her, and helping her come to terms with her many life problems, and being there for her where there is no one else, making her laugh-- it is my greatest happiness. I feel validated. I feel needed.

Now I find myself in the midst of one of many occasional periods where I am not needed so much, and in her absence, I have had time to think about all of this. I have befriended other people, adults, via the local Pokemon Go community. --and I have found myself interacting with them in very much the same way. We will go out raiding gyms around town, or play League of Legends online together, and they will talk to me about their personal problems, and I do my best to help them. I don't feel needed by them nearly as much as I do with Red, but it's something.

So now I'm thinking, maybe I should pursue an education in psychology. Then I can help people more effectively, and on a professional level, and make a meaningful career out of it. I don't know where I'll go from there, exactly.

My advice would be to get a degree in Social Work with minors in Psychology and/or Sociology.

I was going to suggest fighting crime as a costumed vigilante, but the work would probably be too sporadic. This is probably a better idea.

Doesn't that mostly lead to government jobs, where you're barely helping anyone due to the massive bureaucracy? And often, actually f'n them over.

Go get a job at some place like Habitat for Humanity or another charity. Or do you need the above degree for those?

Speaking only from my workplace (a 5013c NGO) I can do my job without a degree, but to be a councilor I'd need a degree. Because nine years of actual counseling and doing the real work isn't enough to get a title and a pay raise.

So, yeah; if you just want to work in a "social work" environment you don't need a degree. If you want the real money, you'd better get one.

Bear in mind i work at a homeless shelter. I don't think I could work in a soul-crushing bureaucratic environment like, for instance, the food stamp office.

I'm starting at University of Florida next Spring. Never dreamed I'd be a Gator. My plan is to get a decent job with a bachelors degree, then use that help pay to get my masters, then doctorate. I wish I could have started with all of this 12 years ago when I was graduating high school...
