So I've been living in Japan for a year and a half as an English teacher and doing alot of things on the side selling and making art/t-shirts, writing raps and poems, and the usual expat stuff. I enjoy Japan alot, but don't really have any interest in teaching (especially english). I do it because I can and I learn alot from the people I interact with in Japan (about the people, lifestyle, language, culture etc.)
I'm hoping to stay in Japan long term, I could actually see myself just living out here. But I dont want to be the English teacher. I'm going to a art and music conference/showcase in Osaka to network, build my skills, and if I get lucky find a different field of work (probably wont happen, but a boy can dream haha).
I've also been think about going back to university but in Japan for a masters. I'm stuck between indulging in my creative avenues like art,writing, Japanese culture/language, and something along the lines of business management (there are many master programs in English in Japan, not so much for the arts program understandably). I'm also studying the language on the side (I studied for 5 years in America and have been studying by myself as well as practicing with Japanese natives from time to time).
I'm planning to move to Osaka (cheaper and less over saturated with foreigners like myself who want to do creative stuff) to pursue more creative stuff like making music, modeling, and art. But in the mean time will probably just teach. I don't have a job lined up, but I'm not worried really. Teaching jobs are an abundance here, and I have a hefty savings atm.
So any advice lol? I know I'm not very direct on here about what i want to do. Maybe I just needed a channel to drop my thoughts, but any advice is welcomed!
