Thank you to Joey of Thoughts and Afterthoughts for subtly reminding me that I have a huge responsibility to update my blog. Although, to be honest, he was only reflecting on his own blogging schedule and I just felt quite guilty.
That feeling when you haven’t blogged in 5ever and your scheduled drafts end up going live. Scorecard – blog: 4; Joey: 0.

I want to give an extra pat on my own shoulder as I have written a couple of really long articles in July not for any other blogging site but my own. If you do have the time, please read my articles (Something smells Kimchi and The Gods of VIBAL’s CPD Program). Also, finishing five books this month does not sound so bad either–I ought to give myself a reward.

10 Innovative Learning Strategies For Modern Pedagogy
My immediate supervisor shared this link and I found it enlightening. However, I cannot make heads or tails of why items 8 and 10 are included in the list of ‘learning’ strategies.
Japan’s Iga city ‘does not need ninjas’ after reports it was hiring
Trust the Japanese to always defend and preserve their culture and tradition- they even posted the announcement in Nihonggo.
Why Jack Ma Doesn’t Hire the Best Candidate for the Job
Just a thought, maybe it’s about time we re-evaluate our screening process. Then again, experience and wisdom cannot be measured objectively.
Finally, I would like to give a great shout-out to my friend, Von, who has noticed the list of articles getting shorter each month that passed by. It takes great friendship to notice that and to tell me the truth.
