Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I grew up in Washington State, but have been living in Japan since
2004. I love Osaka, music, and hanging out with friends.
I'm a nerd, a teacher, a fangirl, an academic, a gamer, a foodie, a
writer, and a whole lot of other nouns.

Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a Japanese-to-English translator of video games, anime, and
other entertainment media. The variety of the work is pretty

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Friends! My friends are extremely high on my priority list.
Concerts! I usually go to 2 to 4 a month. I like to have at least a
ticket or two to look forward to at any given time.
Tasty food! It doesn't have to be expensive, but I like to enjoy my
meals, not just fuel up.
Games! Anything from card games, board / boxed games, tabletop
RPG's, party games, video games, to even stuff I'm truly horrible
at like pool or darts or bowling.
the Internet! for work, for fun, and most of all, to keep in touch
with people who are important to me
Recently: To-do lists. I was never much of a fan of them before,
but for some reason they've been amazingly helpful for me in the
past year or two. I'm getting things done!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
