Late night, thought I'd look in.
'People' didn't turn on me, beelzebub and Bulk just seemed like unhappy people who like disagreements or want to instigate. Beelzebub in particular seemed like a dummy, so it was easy to ignore him. Not that Bulk seemed smart, but I'd label him smarter than Bub. I can't block Bulk, so no point wasting my time processing his comments. Facebook is pretty good that way, when someone is just being an ass, you cut them off without replying, but that's not an option here. Benoit's 'pretentious' comment actually struck at me at the time, and I had to consider it. Ultimately, I had to decide that it's better to expect more from life and my own work and get labelled pretentious rather than just aim low and produce what you consider garbage. My goal has never been to work on the Big Bang Theory.
I'm still in Sapporo, and considering the greedy stupidity the city has had with ALTs this year, I'm sure the (relatively) massive number of new teachers the city is getting this week will be surfing this site for advice... there's zero chance they will be adequately trained. Here's hoping this site is a solid resource.
Since I last posted, I've got a publisher, had a book published, and am now working on a new book about the stupid ALT scandal here. Appearing at the Nevermind the Books in Sapporo, and Comic Arts Tokyo this month. Good times, hanging with creative types. Having properly settled into Sapporo, I really like life here. If anyone reading this is in Sapporo, and does comics, PM me, I get an e-mail notification, and we'll bring you into the fold.
Anyway, best to those who are good people, and my sympathy to those who spend their time being dicks online. Haven't been following the forum, but odds are that those who were good before are still good, and those who were dicks before are still dicks. I'll check in in 2019 or so. No promises.
