Oh my goodness! Amid the vortex that is this pandemic, July 30 rolled right by and I completely forgot that this year What can I do with a B.A. in Japanese Studies celebrates TEN YEARS of activity! Wow!!
A million thanks to all of you who have been reading over the years, growing with the blog as I traveled down my own path in Japanese Studies, and who have been SO generous in writing for Shinpai Deshou or reaching out to express your appreciation for the labor of love that is this blog. Every day I think about how I might take the blog into the future and improve its content and interface for you all, and I hope to be able to make that a serious commitment in the near future. Thanks for sticking it out with me over the years. 🙂
Stay safe, be well, and, well, 心配しないでね。✨
Paula, I have SO enjoyed your work. MANY THANKS from an OLD “Japan hand” (majored in college in Japanese in the 1960’s !!!). What are YOU up to, professionally?
Thank you kindly, Joan! 🙂 And for following over the years! I am currently in the second year of a Council on East Asian Studies postdoc at Yale. Crossing my fingers for employment next year and keeping busy with all my projects (many over at prcurtis.com now!). Hope you’re doing well!
Happy Birthday, Shinpai Deshou! 🍨 Paula, thank you for offering this wonderful platform to the motley bunch of Japanese learners and Japan-related professionals. 🙂
Thanks Elena! 🙂 Here’s to hoping there’s 10 more! ✨
