I got a Job!

Filed under: — Andy @ 5:33 am

Yay, I found a job in Okinawa. Better yet, it’s a computer job. I work for a company called Aplix, which makes cell phone software… well the software that runs the software on cell phones. The group I am in makes sure there are no bugs or problems with the software. The office is completely Japanese people, and my Japanese skills are improving every day. Also, for being a Japanese work place it seems a very relaxed atmosphere. There are a few problems though. The first is that I live in Okinawa so my pay is very low, especially when comparing it to Tokyo. The second is that I live in Chatan while my work, as well as all major companies, is in Naha… a 45 min bus ride away. I dont like the busses very much as unlike the Tokyo train system they are not on time and you are never sure which route it is really going. Because of the busses, I was even late for work durring my first week on the job. I think I am getting more used to them now though. Here is the bus I take every morning:
