On friday, I went to Tennouzu Isle. I had to go to the Immigration Bureau. But woohoo! I got lost. I find it easy to get lost in Tokyo. But it’s okay. The only bad thing was that it was SO hot. When it’s not raining, it’s boiling hot here! It’s almost summer.🙂

I really don’t take enough pictures. I think I’m worried to look like a silly tourist..hehe.
The rainy season started, but we have pretty shiny sunny days in between.

I’ve been working a few hours during the weekend somewhere, but I’m quitting after tomorrow. I have a few jobs I’m about to pick from right now, that will give me more hours. But I’m still unsure about which one  is the best choice. I have another interview tomorrow, so after that, I might know a bit more which direction I need to take.

As any reality is…. you gotta provide for yourself to live. So my priority right now is to work so I can extend my stay. Without money…no rent, no food, etc. My account’s balance is getting very low, so I have to be careful. I’m not giving up though!

Of course I do my best to look up auditions that are possible for me to enter. But a lot of them are demotape auditions…which can take forever to get a reply, if any. I want to find more live ones. There are some auditions with age limits too. And a lot of auditions are open only for singer-songwriters. I’ve even seen an audition that refused demos containing cover songs where you use a commercially released karaoke track (from a CD). ^^;;; But anyway, if you ever hear of anything that I might not know about, I’d gladly take suggestions. I buy a magazine called ‘Audition’ that comes out once a month. That’s where I find most of my opportunities.

But either way, I hope my financial worries settle down soon so I can put more energy into singing.
My only practice is when I go to karaoke box so… it requires money. So I can’t go very often. But I need to. I do my best to learn new songs “mentally” by listening to them at home, then try them out at karaoke. ^^;;; It’s not easy to proceed that way, but it’s still working out alright. I just need to get used to it.

I’m sorry I don’t have any incredible news to tell, but I’ll keep doing my best to find opportunities.

Ciao ciao for now!
