Some personal news! This Friday, I’m starting a new job. I’m really looking forward to it, especially since it’s in the Japan-related industry. I won’t say much more about it here, but maybe I’ll be able to share some details in the future.
The reason I mention it is that it’s going to affect the Tokyograph news schedule. I’m switching from a nighttime job to a regular daytime job, which means that I’ll no longer be available in the early afternoon to read the news from Japan and update right away. I still plan to keep the news output at about the same rate, but new stories will now be appearing several hours later than usual. I’m hoping it’s not a big deal, but I’m mentioning it so that I can point to this post when people start asking why the news isn’t as fast as it used to be.
(By the way, if you saw the recent poll about being a day person or night person, I fall under the latter category. And on top of that, I have to retrain my sleep schedule!)
On a related note, the past couple days I’ve also been a bit behind in the news - this is partly due to me trying to finish off everything for my old job, and partly due to the awesomeness that is Super Smash Bros. Brawl (yes, I’ll admit I’ve been slacking in favor of some video game time).
Updates in the near future may also suffer, due to the job transition, the Easter holiday, relatives visiting in a week from now, and yes, SSBB. In particular, I may not get much news done this Friday (as I finish my old night-time job on Thursday and then start my new daytime job the next morning) and this Sunday (spending Easter with the family, then going to the Japan Nite show). Don’t hate me for late news.
If you have any questions or concerns about all of this, drop me a line in the comments or by email. Also, if you’d like to help out in improving the site’s news coverage, feel free to offer your services
Anyway, wish me luck with my new job (and everything else)!
