If I had half the luck I had with guys, I'd be rolling in feminine affection.
So far I have:
-Been treated to drinks and snacks by random dudes I meet on/walking on/walking off the train.
-Ended up guestlisted anywhere in Shibuya I'd like.
-Grabbed phone numbers and invitations to go out from massage therapists, managers, businessmen, and students.
Have fun, y'all- this break is what you make of it. As for me, it's a few nights of dating, drinking, sleeping, and networking, then a trip out to Nagoya to see Sandy, a girl from my home college that invited me out to my family's place for the holidays. Merry Jesus-day, happy hanukkah, and a festive pagan solstice to all.
Ok, actually getting to today's event wasn't due to me- it was Sam, the awesome front-and-center Jew in the above picture, that hooked me up with these guys and their crazy holiday party. That said, I feel (and know) like these sorts of opportunities are all around- I came to this knowing practically nobody, and three months in, I have enough contacts to bury me in clubs, alcohol, jobs (mebbe less of a bury and more of a lightly sprinkle), and general recreation. For a foriegner in Tokyo, life is about one choice: are you going to have fun, or not? If you set your mind to it, you can meet new people every night, keep up your grades, and grab silly discounts everywhere you go. Most people love foriegners, and if the people you're with don't, meet some new people. This country is what you make it- go out and make it great.
