  • You could walk down the street.

  • Oh, hey, this is the fella I met, right?

  • Yeah, I know.

  • Steven is not Steven.

  • Steven goes down and he walks down the block downtown areas on.

  • But that's because he just he's been to every bar in town got drunk with everyone, some karaoke and his friends around and gets invited.

  • Closed.

  • So cheap?

  • Government subsidy on da Yeah, so it's quite comfortable life and the salary isn't bad.

  • Ah, the only downside is your salaries in game on DA.

  • If you're from the UK or America or anywhere that's not Japan, your salary will have gone down a tongue in the last two years.

  • Dip it in perspective.

  • My salary in pound terms has gone from £30,000 to that £20,000 in two years, which is a ridiculous amount.

  • Money.

  • When I think about pounds and when I think about it, I feel like crime a lot in terms of Japanese money, terms of yet it's actually quite good.

  • You can live a comfortable lifestyle, huh?

  • I went on Go jin park dot com and just look down the list and there's loads of recruiting consultant jobs.

  • But a lot of people carried on teaching in different roles.

  • Different schools.

  • Yeah, I guess that's the bad thing is a time frame and there's no sense of progression or you can't go up on DDE like most jobs, you know, you don't really.

  • There's no long term plan.

  • It's kind of like this is it.

  • You have fun now go.

  • So it's kind of a short term think.

  • But other than that, I'd say is really gets I would say this job's been great.

  • I don't give it knowing out 10 9 out of 10.

  • It's a one off being 10 attempts us Okay, someone said the weight loss is what I'm really wondering about the weight loss.
