JetWit Blog Beat by Crystal Wong

JetWit Blog Beat by Crystal Wong (Iwate-ken, 2002-04) is a recurring item featuring posts from the blogs of various JET alumni.  Crystal is a formerEnglish-language writer for Kyodo News. She now works as a media planner in Chelsea and sorely misses all her favorite midtown ramen joints.

The shift from spring into summer seems as good a time as any to take stock of where you’re at with your goals as we hit the six month mark for 2009. Or better yet, maybe it’s just time to take a break from the grind and go on a much needed vacation. Either way, we see all these themes at play here at Blog Beat as we go through the blogroll.

Take a peek at some of the JET alumni reporting from their divergent paths:

From Tokyo, Lars Martinson gives us insight into the name behind a Japanese indie rock band.

Kevin and Aaron share tips on traveling in Japan.

Lee-Sean Huang (Oita-ken, 2003-2006) is headed west for a summer internship.

A house grows in Japan: JET alum Toby Weymiller shows us the adventure of building his own home.
