Want to know what gets you money?

Do you live in the united states? Have you ever lived here?



From the sky, To the ground
Rain is falling all around
Thunder rain and wind
A song of storms begins

Play a song, A melody
Then everybody will see
The hero of time
Has come

I do live in the United States, and if anything I have more freedoms here than in Japan.

The US isn't the only Country like that. It's hard for any country to be a country and have it's people be completely free. All Country's have their own pros and cons, but I too like Japans culture and past.

They aren't saying it's impossible, they're saying it is near impossible, and I understand where they're coming from, though I don't like it.

Kenpachi, I am going to guess you are a high school student. I know it's hard, but the experiences you are going through now are not universal, and do not stay that way.

Right now you don't have a lot of freedom, that is true. But you also don't have a lot of responsibility. As you get older both of those things grow, no matter where you live.

yes i am a high school student and im in the 10th grade but i know alot about the government and how stupid and how many tyrants are in there. they take away the death penaltiy until like a month ago when my state was the first to do it again and it was lethal injection. I really dont see how the death penalty is bad i mean if you kill a person they only get like 20 years and when they are release they do it again.

I'd rather stay on topic than talk about the death penalty.

In terms of government, American people have much more faith in their government than they do in Japan. Change is slow there, and scandals are an almost daily event.

Just out of curiousity, if you are 16, why have you already decided you are not going to college? If you want to be an international traveller/worker, things are going to be a LOT easier with a degree.

Orodreth, and I am not trying to discourage people to try to live in Japan, I am trying to encourage to start that quest with a degree in hand.

It's a lot easier to build a house with a hammer and nails than just with your bare hands.
