Thanks for stopping by

I don't normally write much about my personal life. I figure there's a niche for that kind of thing, and it's not what I'm aiming for right now. But from time to time I do like to share little insights into what's going on in my life, for those who may be interested.

Life is full of ups and downs. Living in another country doesn't change that. I've had my share of both suffering and happiness here. And I'm grateful. Certainly to many of the people I've met here, but also to my friends and family back home for being so supportive. Thank you all.

And also to those who have been reading Just Another Day. Readership has been picking up, and the comments and support are most welcome and most appreciated. I've discovered that I find blogging to be both very enjoyable and rewarding, and the Japan-related blog-o-sphere is full of interesting and friendly people. So to those who are reading, to my fellow J-bloggers - thank you very much! I'll continue doing my best to provide both entertaining and informative Japan-related material.

On a related note, I would also like to thank Shadow (though he hasn't touched pen to paper in some time) and Joe for their help and their well-written contributions. Two (or three or four, as the case may be) heads are better than one, as they say, and I'm glad to have contributors who can provide differing views and insights.

(And don't be surprised if you see more more contributors in the future - I am always striving to improve the content here).

Right now life is pretty good. Work is satisfying, I have good friends both here and abroad, and I just started dating an awesome girl who isn't afraid to call me on my Japanese mistakes - thanks, Yoshie! =) Recently I've been pretty lucky.

So everyone, thank you very much. Keep reading and I'll keep doing my best!





今のところに人生は結構いいと思います。仕事は一般的に満足です。日本にもアメリカにも仲良い友達います。凄く素敵な女の子と付き合い始めたばかりで、彼女は僕が日本語間違っているときに遠慮なく指摘くれる子です。ありがとう、よしえ!=) 最近僕は結構ラッキーだと思いますね。



  1. It's ok to write personal stuff once in a while. A little transparency brings you closer to your audience. Though too much is definitely not my thing.

  2. No, no, no, Thank You! It's fun to share my opinions with the unwitting public. I'm also glad to work with someone as motivated as you. Let's keep the ball rolling and synergize and all that
