First off, I’m alive, staying healthy (although I catch the occasional cold), and getting sleep every day.
I’m sorry for the lack on any contact, let me explain in brief:
After coming back from my last business trip, like, literally the day I came back, I finally got details about the new department I was going to join for part of the week.
A few days later, I met everyone in my new team, got my new office in order, etc.
Things started getting busy when staff started to quit in both jobs, which means more work for the rest of us.
Right now I’m in charge of several projects going on at the same time, with no end in sight, or at least not until my contract finishes at the end of March!
Japanese working culture is a bit of a headache too.
You might have noticed when Johnny’s talents get together in big groups, the older, senior talents are always the most important.
The younger talents are always careful with how they act or talk in front of their seniors, and a lot of Japanese companies are like that too.
I have to act and talk a certain way to my older senpai, and while I’m cool with being polite and respecting them, what I do mind are the few senpai who let it get to their heads.
I guess there’s always one everywhere, the person who acts like they are supreme ruler of the world.
In my case, I have a few of those at work, and they’re difficult to work with.
The workload I’ve been getting is quite a lot so unfortunately I’ve decided to take a break from blogging until late January 2013.
I’m so sorry, but I promise to be back!! I hope you all have the best Christmas and a Happy New Year!!
And don’t worry about me, I have a small rebel alliance at work too! Some people who share the same views as me and we like to cheer each other up during the day 😀
