The internet saved me a PhD in a country where I had been struggling for years to get my work in.
I’d had a number of years to study and it had been a huge help to finally get a foothold in academia.
But I didn’t even finish the first year of the programme and, while I could have gone back and finished the whole thing, I didn´t want to do that.
I had a hard time putting my mind to that.
The idea that the internet could be used to teach me something so simple and important was terrifying.
So, after two months of working from home, I applied to a Japanese institution.
The first step was to get a university degree.
After a few years of doing this, I had enough qualifications to apply for a job as a teaching assistant at the university where I was studying.
And the first thing that I learned about my Japanese was that the language is actually a lot more complicated than you might expect.
The Japanese system is a little more formal, the written language is not always spoken.
And, of course, there are more words than there are letters.
So, while there are a lot of words that you could say, there is also a lot that you can’t say.
In Japan, there’s actually a whole system of rules and guidelines that govern how we speak and how we talk about things, like how we can pronounce the word 『僕業』 and what words to use to form a verb.
It is the same in English, so it is difficult to say what to say in Japanese.
The internet was very helpful in a lot, but it is definitely a different environment.
It was very hard to work from home.
It had its perks, but I felt like I was missing out on things that I might have done differently, or better, with the internet.
After two months in Japan, I decided that I wanted to continue to study Japanese, and I found a Japanese university.
And after a year of going back and forth between Japanese and English, I finally got my degree.
I started my dissertation in 2017 and I have been working with it ever since.
I started working at the National Institute of Information Technology (NII) in Tokyo.
I’m also part of the research group that has been working on a book called How to Teach Japanese: How to Create an Emotional Language.
I am a professor of linguistics and it’s my job to create an emotional language in the world, which means that I have to write in Japanese a lot.
So I’ve been writing a lot on how to create a language for teaching and learning in Japanese and also to write a book on the history of the language, which is a bit of a different animal than what I have done in English.
So I work as an assistant professor, which isn’t very often in Japan.
But, because I am the only foreigner in the lab, I have had a lot opportunities to learn from other Japanese students.
For example, there was one professor in the class who is the only Japanese person I’ve met and who I’ve learnt from quite a lot from, and he’s the only person in the group who speaks English, too.
So there are lots of opportunities to talk to Japanese people and to study with them.
And I really like doing that.
It’s really interesting.
One of the challenges of working in Japan is that it is very remote, and it can be quite lonely.
So if you want to start working, you are expected to do a lot in a short time period, which I think is really important.
I also feel like I have a really good team.
I have so many students in the classes, and we can work together really well.
And that is really nice, because it gives you the freedom to do what you want.
And we have lots of fun.
I have been able to go to Tokyo to study for the last three years, and the first two years were spent in Japan doing my PhD. But then, I went back to Japan a few months ago and started doing my Ph.
D. for my thesis.
And so, the first few years were really challenging, but now I am really happy with what I’ve achieved.
I feel like the first five years were quite tough.
But now that I am doing my thesis, I think I have overcome all that.
As I say, I am going to be a professor in Japan for the next two years, so I have more time to study, but as soon as I start my Ph, I will be doing a lot less.
The thing that has kept me going is my students.
They are always there for me.
It has been a really important experience, so they are really helpful.
It feels good to have a group of people who you can talk to and who you will learn from.
I think that that is a really nice feeling.
And then, of the things that they say, you can learn
