Joined 13 years ago from Devon, England
Hello, and thanks for checking out my profile. I'm from the UK and spent nearly four years in Japan until 2011. I've had a long list of unrelated jobs (including TV comedy writer, philosophy and politics teacher, videogames journalist and marketing officer) and now I'm a language instructor and amateur blogmeister.
My interests are a little eclectic, so hopefully you'll forgive my digressions into subjects as diverse as traveling and living in Japan, home improvement (especially tiling which is - honestly - very interesting), etiquette, politics, sports and society, and whatever else I happen to be in the mood to research and ponder.
This is my favorite hub - some hopefully funny observations about living in Japan.
I've also recently written this article on the subject of Elizabeth Bennet from Pride and Prejudice.
I have an MSc in International Politics and a Postgraduate Certificate in Education, which are of course standard qualifications in the tiling trade...
Please message me and let me know about your hubbage.

Love hotels are, essentially, normal hotels except that you can pay by the hour and are rarely allowed to remain for longer than 24 hours.
