Frequently Asked Questions:

Q. What's the deal with the gray hair?
A. I am genetically flawed. I have had gray hair since I was 12. It got really serious around age 21.

Q. Why are you in Japan?
A. My preceptor visited Iowa City last year and did a darn fine job of selling this internship. I focused my efforts on coming to Japan rather early on. There was good word of mouth on this internship, so I was happy to come over here for two and a half months.

Q. What will you NOT miss about Japan?
A. Low ceilings, "Japanese sized" things, poor television programming, and the absence of the English language (Japanese is a hard language!)

Q. What will you miss about Japan?
A. I will mostly miss the friendly people. Many people have been exceptionally kind to me during my time in Japan. Along the same lines, I will miss the social times as well, particularly the times I was able to go out with the lab people. The food and drink in Japan is also excellent and will be sorely missed. Most of all, however, I will miss my working environment and the fun times I had working at Kameda.

There are probably a ton of little things I will miss that I can't think of right now (my final hours in Japan) but those will become more evident in the next few days.
