Flip the Switch. Help out your Community. / by airi katsuta

I've been talking about Japan and the earthquake & tsunami that happened on March 11, 2011 a lot on here. And I want to keep informing everyone that help is needed. I was planning on moving back to Japan next spring to find jobs and experience Japan to the fullest since I haven't LIVED there since I was 6. However, I got scared and back out of my plan after the earthquake happened. I was like, I don't want to live in a place where I have to be scared! But after weeks of thinking and seeing my sister volunteer and all, my mind changed 3 days ago. Flipped the switch, I suppose. I bought a round-trip plane ticket for Japan for a whole month and decided to go back to Japan this summer and help out. I can keep talking about it but now I want to do something about it. I'm very excited to volunteer for an organization and make a difference, even if it's small, so I can be a part of something that's larger than me.

And I'm 20 now and that's the legal age for everything in Japan. So I'm excited to experience Japan as an adult :)
