"Basically start by saying where you were in Akita and for how long, and then talk about the following questions:
1) How was the reverse culture shock when you moved back home? Did you feel any, and how did you deal with it?
2) What are you doing now, where are you living?
3) How did your JET experience help you professionally?
4) Do you have any regrets about not doing something on the JET Programme?
5) Do you have any message for the JETs leaving this year?"
These are the verses I wrote in response, entitled "JET Coaster":
hey everybody my name's JournalRhythm no I mean Eyjilla no I mean AJ
these days I answer to the names of these three folks
it's no joke what I spoke you we goin' for broke
I had an overdose of flow and opened up to music
paired it up with the daily news and infused it
cruised in on the JET Programme and used it
to build another library of words to choose
imbuing myself with bicultural influence
got no regrets. here's my summary and 2 cents:
ジェットコースターみたいにups and downs
you feel kinda like a hero yet a sidekick somehow
けど乗っているうちにwatch out for your calling
こんな時。that ain't no joke, see.
that's my video... you can proceed.
