Tips and Advice for Freelancers

Being a freelancer has its ups and downs. Personally, getting to work from home, with my own hours as long as I meet deadlines, being able to turn down work (you know, hypothetically, if I have that much work) if I need to, and — if we're being honest here — cutting down on the face-to-face parts of work are all very good for me, since I'm not really sure I could handle a 'normal' job.

An Introduction to Japanese Bento

The idea of bento (obento vs.bento is a matter of formality, 'obento' is more formal) is nothing unusual — boxed lunches exist just about anywhere. The main difference in Japan is how widespread it is, and how ingrained it is in the culture. Packing lunch happens everywhere, but it's an entire class of meal in Japan, partly because of the amount of time people spend away from home at work or school.

Kanji, Guesswork and You

Kanji, rather infamously, has a lot of characters to learn (or Hanzi, or Hanja, but I'm using Kanji for specifically the Japanese use of it). The sure-fire way is to learn them all, of course; the good news is that you're going to learn what a lot of compound words (jukugo) mean pretty much for free along with those characters. If you want to learn what a lot of kanji mean the proper way, though, there are better places than an online article.

Akihabara exploration series: My own recommended style of exploring Akihabara

Today’s Akihabara is a town of subcultures and electricity.

The district is filled with stores selling anime, manga, various associated merchandise and video games, and maids can be seen in the streets, but that’s not all. If it’s machine parts you’re looking for, you can find that in Akihabara as well.

The reason for this is that a few decades ago, Akihabara was a district filled with parts shops selling radios, wireless machinery components, vacuum tubes and more.
