Apparently if I want to keep driving next year, I either must spend three months in America (to make an international driver's permit legal again) or get a Japanese license. Getting a license would be fine if I were planning on staying in Japan for several more years - it only makes sense to have the license of the country/state you live in.

However.

Just to apply for the test I need to fill out forms and send them and 3,380 yen to the Japan Automobile Federation, and then wait for further instructions. The actual test itself includes written and practical driving, but it also includes being automatically failed the first time, being failed the second time for good measure, being failed the third time just for the instructor's fun, and maybe being allowed to pass the fourth time. One of the other Joytalk employees had to take the test five times before they passed. I don't even know where I'm supposed to go to take these tests after I submit all the documentation.

Japan. Why do you exist to make life hard for people?

Also, no word yet on the training dates for Spring, though apparently the Tochigi people are having it on the 5th (which will be the day I get back from America - I predicted that, but leaving any earlier made the price of tickets skyrocket). I don't even know if I'm staying here in Maebashi or not.

Sigh, my life.

Back to attaching sleeves to my blouse.
