Lauren In Tokyo

Late meeting

One thing about working here in Japan is that meetings with other continents are usually not a big problem. Meetings with the U.S. are conducted in the mornings, and meetings with Europe are conducted in the afternoons.

Tomorrow, however, there will be a 3-way telephone conference between all three offices. What this means for me is that I expect to be up at 3 in the morning either tonight or tomorrow night just to listen in on this thing.

It's funny. This Japanese office actually doesn't have anything to do with the project in question.

On second thought, it's not really funny at all.

  • About 5 years ago I seriously considered trying to get a job at Canon. It didn't work out, unfortunately.

    The fact that it is way out in the suburbs on the opposite side of Tokyo was another big problem for me.
