Unintentionally Going on a Date with my TA

I'm a senior in college who recently started talking to "Kyle" on Tinder. We scheduled a coffee date for this weekend and, in the ensuing conversation, we established that he is the TA for a music performance elective I just signed up for. Where do I go from here? [more inside]

Generating ideas for work in Japan outside of teaching, or Eikaiwa jobs.

I'm currently looking for work in Japan. I'm scouring the internet, Dave's ESL cafe, ALT (assistant language teacher) listings and am not really looking for help in that respect. If you have any suggestions however, I am happy to hear more. The only exception would be if anyone knows of any Eikaiwa (Private school) jobs or any forums that post job listings.. It is my question that since the work is not always steady and there is the possibility I would go there just to tutor, there is waaay too much flux in my ability to pay for rent. I need help figuring outside work. Outside of selling Japanese items around the world, I'm trying to figure out ways to make money with a general skill set. I'm vocal enough and confident in my speaking ability so I figure I can lead tour groups on my free time and post the listings on craigslist. I'm also looking into working as a waiter or dishwasher, but I was hoping for some help generating ideas. Thanks! PS - I alreadly have information on career cross and gaijin pot. If anyone knows any temp agencies are teacher employment agencies, that would be appreciated as well.

Computer TA work ideas

As the IT guy in a high school (180 students), I'm thinking of taking on one or two "TAs" to work with the computers. For the IT people out there, what would you have students do (or would you allow it)? From the students' perspective, I'm also looking for ideas & projects they might find interesting and beneficial towards a future in IT. [more inside]
