Poland: The Update

polish english 

Today i accidentally fond movie “Poland: The Update” on youtube, saw all 5 parts,
Foreigners living in poland describe their feelings, impressions, how do they live there etc.
Partially i agree with them but not in everything. Worth having a look.

Ostatni Dzień

polish english 

Today is my last day in old company…
What is the most funny and interesting, today i pressed shuffle button in my iTunes and computer randomly picked up some music to fill my ipod – and soon after leaving train it started playing polish song – Boys – Last day, Last Night ;-) ;-) I had LMAO, even my computer knows it’s last day ;-).
How do i feel? – weird, maybe more calm, i will totally change environment, only old friends will be the same, will meet whole lot of new people,
new big company, new interesting and responsible opportunities, new outlook for life, possible transfer abroad when i get bored with japan. Soon new apartment…
changes and more changes, no emotions at all – interviews, negotiations and visa process took long enough to make me get used to everything and everything is calm now.
What next ? – don’t know, will work some and will see…

New Life

polish english 

New life ahead, few days ago i received my visa, soon i will change my job (company name is secret for now), everything is just perfect.
For those who don’t know – changing visa while staying in Japan is very much possible and not so hard, despite fact that my current visa was valid until end of november and preparations for changing it were quite long there was no problems, i didn’t have to leave Japan (to invalidate visa), no tricks (and officials know very well that popular trips to ie. korea are used to reset visa status) etc.
In my case i need a bunch of documents, including resume, diploma, contract, termination letter and even confirmation that i receive salary (or remuneration). After completing all documents it took exactly 8 days to approve my status change, later 2 days to put new status in my passport and that’s all. I didn’t even have to wait standard 4-6 weeks. I got best visa ever possible – 3 years(and that’s a lottery, even relies on mood of official), no limits, with multiple reentry permit.
