My self-summary
I am passionate about learning, travelling and cooking. I am fascinated by the way ancient people conceived about the world and how early moderns interpreted the nature. I am studying history and philosophy of science. I love travelling but haven't been travelling lately. I would love to go to Europe and Scandinavian countries but also enjoy travelling inside Japan (where I'm from). There is so much to see. Also I LOVE cooking, again especially Japanese food. I recently made sushi to raise money for the earthquake victims in Japan at school. I also write essays and stories.
What I’m doing with my life
I have just graduated from studying philosophy and history at Concordia University, Montreal, last summer. Just got accepted into the grad program at History of Philosophy Department at University of Western Ontario, so I am moving to London in July. I left for California in the US to study film writing right after graduating from high school. But I did not like the program there. So I went back to Japan for a while to reformulate my life plan, and worked as an English teacher at a cram school. I also worked at a rather large bookstore in Japan as a clerk, also in charge of magazines, where I collected a lot of cuisine magazines. I cook Japanese dishes, and bake some bread. After 3 years, I finally left Japan for university in Montreal, Canada to study philosophy and history - I want to be a professor of philosophy - this is why I am head over heels on philosophy books and history of ideas. My primary interest is on early modern philosophy, 16th & 17th century science, philosophy and medicine. I am also interested in the ancient Greek philosophy, and would like to specialize in both areas. I am learning Latin and ancient Greek for the moment as well as French. I love school, and this is why I want to do my MA, and then PhD.

I have written about on (d)evolution of pop-culture in Japan, Haitian zombies, and Ninja science.

My current undertakings -

- Alchemy and matter theory
- History and Philosophy of Witchcraft
- Medical Philosophy in Japan in the 17th century and before
- Philosophy of Japanese Folklore
- Descartes, Spinoza, and Leibniz and history and philosophy of science in Europe.
I’m really good at
cooking, writing, making people laugh, having good conversations, drinking coffee and eating chocolate, socializing, and playing tennis.

I'm also now growing plants. ;)
The first things people usually notice about me
that I am funny and cheerful, friendly in nature. My jokes are witty and can be sarcastic. - Okay I just realized those are probably after the first few meetings people would normally notice about me when meeting people from online, rather than meeting people 'naturally' or more passively at school or somewhere, but basically, I am kind, smart, and caring. Though, it's rather you who is to be the judge of that.
