Joshua Radin

I love this song. Look into Joshua Radin if you haven't heard of him yet. There are very few songs of his that I don't listen to over and over again. This one, I think, is from his first album.

I like my job, too. I'm a freelance translator now, but working for a specific company this month as a trial for full-time employment, possibly starting in the new year. It keeps me busy because there's a lot to do and a lot of new things to learn, and it's wonderful to be grappling with Japanese all day long. Sometimes the texts are bulky and awkward, sometimes they're peppered with yet unfamiliar technical terms, and sometimes they're pure linguistic elegance, flowing with keigo and courtesy. My goals for now? Increasing my understanding and efficiency, building trust and amicability with my team, and.... writing a bucket list.

Best wishes with you new employment and your bucket list. You are one of the few people who I could honestly see achieving every goal you put down on your list.

Best wishes and keep rocking!
