Somewhat able to surface and take occasional breath now. Still many good things on my table, but they are all happening simultaneously, various immediate multinational companies’ projects. So amazing. I thought I was happily bonding with my Japanese comrades over the past 2 years, but seen from another perspective, I was in vigorous training to learn all about Japanese workplace culture and practices, which is the kind of knowledge and experience multinational companies headquarters desperately wants to have in Japan. And through it all, I am learning to be sensitive to cultural differences between any different cultures.
