First let me say I apologize for not being able to segment the various blogs from the home page. I would like it if only the MOM blog was displayed when you arrive at my space, or if you had the option to select a blog for your default view. This does not seem to be the case (limitation of the software I suppose). Since this is not the case, I hope the Japanese entries don’t bother you. I may end up scratching that blog, but I don’t know yet.
It has been a long time since I have used Japanese, so I am forcing myself to relearn all I knew at one time. It’s not like there are jobs in Japan, or their economy is so strong that getting familiar with Japanese will benefit me in my professional career. All things Japanese are an interest to me. The language especially, but I enjoy the culture, history, art, music, etc.
I gained an interest in Japanese while I was stationed overseas at Camp Hansen in Okinawa, and Camp Fuji in mainland Japan (Honshu). Once I returned from our temporary active duty during the first Gulf War, I started to take Japanese classes in college. Eventually I got a BA in Japanese with a minor in International Business (yet I work in the IT field!). My first degree was a BS in Criminal Justice. So I suppose if things get out of control in Japan, I could always apply for a job as a Japanese police officer and have a side job in some trading company!
Anyway, I just wanted to let you know I am as frustrated as you in regards to the blog layout. The intention was to keep this pure MOM/IT related, but I have blog fever and can’t seem to stop myself. Next I’ll probably put up a blog about my Barbie collection! Just kidding! I don’t collect Barbie. Those toys were to expensive. I had to settle for My Little Pony.
P.S. The primary focus of this space will be in regards to MOM and the world of IT. The secondary seems to consist of family, friends, Japanese, and other odd things eventually. If your primary interest is the MOM information then all you need to do is click on the MOM category and bookmark it. Seems to be a decent work around.
