February 2015, Vol. 2

A late Happy Valentine’s Day from the peeps here at GMA.  We hope that everyone was able to gorge on sweet treats with the thought in mind that no calories counted that day!  😉  If sweets aren’t your thing or you need another helping of sweets, hopefully the articles in today’s issue will do just the trick.

We are also now on the lookout for volunteers for the following column editor positions:

MediaBug Music:  Do you have a passion for Japanese music? If so, we are looking for someone to head the music side of MediaBug.

Trivia Trap:  If you enjoy stumping your fellow coworkers or JETs with your extensive knowledge of everything, perhaps you’d like to feature it in GMA.  We’d love to try and solve them!

Publishing Manager:  We are looking for someone who will assist the Head Editor in organizing and scheduling the GMA blog.

If you are interested in a position please email Jacqueline Laibinis at or  Thank you muchly.  🙂
