Here are the various stories, journals & editorials written
by me (except where noted). Listed by type & subject.
- First Four
Months (2001) - A personal journal of my first
four months in Japan. Not all that interesting, just day-to-day
life and what I thought.
Fun - The reason why Japanese schoolkids' English is so
bad? The teachers and material they're taught with! Kinda
In...Jail??? - An article written by someone
I didn't even know (at the time), posted on a Japan-related
message board shortly after my arrival in Japan. Just for
laughs, is not true (although some family members thought
it was after reading it online). This guy (Kawama) now generously hosts this site on his servers (thanks man!).
Train Fare - An article written by my friend,
Drew, on the finer points of 'borrowing' public transportation
in Japan. Visit Drew's website and read about his life in Japan teaching English to schoolkids here.
