Working hard? Or...

Today at work they gave me a new notebook. Previously, I had been using post-it notes to take Japanese notes on. It looks like a kid's notebook, and on the front is written "A Good Kid's Notebook" (よい子のノート). Even so, I'm happy to get something to take notes with! It's a lot better than post-its, which clutter up the place.

A new adventure

Well, the day has finally arrived. I'm in a Chicago hotel tonight, about to fly out to Tokyo tomorrow for JET program orientation!
I'll be teaching English for the next year in Niikappu-cho, Hokkaido. From what I've been able to learn so far about the place, it's a small town of about 6000 people.

What's On Tap: December

December's going to be a busy month for me. Not only do I have finals coming up, but I also have to work on my thesis! Not to mention, my thesis proposal...

Anyway, here's what you can look forward to from me during December!

  • Revealing the three(!) games I'm working on
  • RSS, Facebook integration + a few layout cleanups
  • Screenshots!
  • The official opening of the Games section
  • Cleanup of Photo section. It needs more... professional-looking pictures.
  • Something interesting in the Etc section... Maybe some things related to my study of Japanese! (日本語が大好き!)
