This summer has faded so quickly that I haven’t had a chance to blog as much as I had hoped. It’s my goal to write at least one post every month, and since there are only a few hours left of this busy September, I wanted to publish a quick entry. I moved from my sweet Namerikawa to Matsuyama City, a city of about 500,000 people on Japan’s Shikoku Island. I’ll be working here for the next year as an EFL instructor and editor at an English conversation school / international translation company. It’s been a challenging few weeks so far, but I hope to learn a lot. In the meantime, a piece I wrote comparing bike riding in Japan and Chicago was recently published at Gapers Block, a webzine I frequently contributed to when I lived in Chicago.
