Uhm. So what with runandgun
2013 ending and me being a creepy stalker I figured it might be a good idea to update LJ again? Also it's just for the sake of updating my LJ, sometimes it makes me kind of sad that this place is so dead. (If anyone wants RnG recs, I read 28/65 fics, sooo... :P)
So I've been back from Japan a little over a month now. The first two weeks I was busy writing up my internship reports and preparing for Japanese Language Proficiency Test (I took N1 *___* totally failed it I'm sure) and then I went to Dusseldorf with neko16
to take the test. So it doesn't feel like I've been back that long already.
I've been applying for part-time jobs here and there, because if I want to go look for work in Japan after I graduate I'm going to need some money to get me started (I didn't spend all the money I got from the internship grant, so I've already got some money set aside for plane tickets, yaaay). So far it hasn't been going well but it's vacation time and I figure everyone is looking for work now. Applied for this one job at a health insurance company that starts in October though, and it lasts for 10 weeks. I have high hopes for that one, since I already have some experience working in insurances?
My thesis is still pretty much nowhere, but I've more or less figured out the kind of primary sources I want to use for my research: Japanese movies from the 1930's that feature women in some prominent way. My thesis advisor told me to just ~immerse myself~ so for the next couple of days I will be watching a lot of old Japanese movies :') see if I can come up with an interesting research question.
How are you all doing?
