I'm a former ESL teacher and would-be writer, presently leading a rather random life. I used to be heavy into politics, but it's just a source of cheap entertainment for me now. In my downtime, I play obscure video games, write short stories and read constantly - mostly nonfiction as I find most novels overly verbose and poorly written in general. (Snobbery!) I just enjoy the creative process, even when it doesn't work out (and it usually doesn't). I've published a few things, to very limited success.
Artificial structure makes me itch. That's probably why I up and decided to leave the country. Ironically, I hate traveling - I never get anything out of it. Seeing a place from the inside is a lot different.
This is mostly an attempt to meet new people. I'm hoping to make some contacts with people in whatever city I wind up in. I get along better with women than men, and always have - even as a child.
There's a fair bit of hanzi on this page, remnants of an earlier build of this site that had a multi-language feature. I find it charming enough to leave it. Go ahead and ask me about it, I'm always happy to talk about these things.
