This chapter resists theory almost completely in this account, attempting to let the story of a relatively autonomous learner and teacher of Japanese as a second language speak for itself. The first part of this chapter defines what a story is, explains how the author writes life stories, and discusses issues surrounding story-based research. The second half of the chapter shares a life story of one of the author's ex-students and offers reflection on the story.

Keywords:   teacher autonomy, story-based research, Japanese, second language, life story
