I'm heading into the office with the optimistic hope that I might get some research preparation done. It's the 19th century Japanese views of Australia project that I'm keen to get back to before classes start again and before I head to Tokyo, but that doesn't turn out to be the case.
|Breakfast, at 6.12am|
The day at work consisted of lots of little admin mop-up operations and discussions about future directions of courses and programs. I probably should have stayed at home if I was going to get any work done although, as the 6.12pm pic shows...those filing draws are full of the materials I need to sort for the project. I was looking at them with some despair by that time.
I'm also starting to tune into the Tokyo election and fortunately the Asahi Shimbun hasn't put up the paywall for election material. There is so much data to mine...it is truly a psephy heaven. Following the news on my Japanese twitter timeline is generating some interest too.
