My self-summary
(Please pardon the silly name...'Twas a bad day for creativity when I made this profile!)

'ello! It's been a while since I've updated this profile, so here are some quick scribbles!

I'm a (supposedly) aspiring journalist and wayward traveller. I recently graduated from university with a degree in Asian Studies (emphasis on Japan) and Political Science (emphasis on international relations). I love to explore new places, go on long drives, binge watch shows, and play games. I'm currently working with a non-profit that runs a couple conventions in Southern California. I eventually hope to travel back to Japan and teach English!

What I’m doing with my life
Like I said, I'm currently with a non-profit that runs conventions in Southern California. Those cons are Anime Expo and Anime Conji. If you're into anime or Japanese pop-culture in general we're sure to get along! I'm also the Executive Editor for a student publication at my alma mater and the occasional guest lecturer.

Aside from that I'm always looking for interesting things to do! If you're up for some adventures in L.A. let me know!
I’m really good at
I'm really good at getting lost! Which is not that much a curse... You find the most interesting places sometimes when you have no idea where you're going :) My friends and coworkers like to say I'm a good writer, but I think I have a lot to learn.
The first things people usually notice about me
The most common answers are typically my smile or eyes, which I find hard to believe. Cliche OKC answer: Why don't you tell me?!

I spend a lot of time thinking about
The future mostly. And what the internet would be like without cats and memes... But mostly the first one. It's fun to think about how things will play through differently depending on certain decisions.
On a typical Friday night I am
I'm either at home relaxing or with friends doing something. If it's the latter we're usually catching a movie, having dinner or just wandering around aimlessly. So long as there's a good book or adventure involved it's a good Friday night! I'm not much of a club person, but I'm down for anything else. Know a good piano bar? Coffee shop? Barcade? Let me know!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
The password for my iPhone is 2-4-7-3 haha No, but really, if there's anything you want to know just ask. I'm a pretty open person.
You should message me if're interested in having random conversations about writing, traveling or anything really! Always looking for new friends. And, if it becomes more than just that, all the better!

Many thanks for reading this far!
