Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
American, living in Tokyo for a little over four years now. I came
over right after college, intending to stay for a year, and haven't
I love craft beer bars, going to see indies rock concerts in
Shimokita or Shibuya, and just generally wandering the city.
I have a group of amazing friends (who are all salarymen, succumbed
to the lure of corporate cash in exchange for their lives outside
of work) and a fantastic, if misanthropic, roommate (who "hates
people" and generally avoids going places where she might have to
encounter them and their stupidity).
All of which has made me realize, I need more friends who will
actually go out and *do* things with me! So if you fall into that
category, send me a message!^^
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.

I love The Count of Monte Cristo, the Annotated Alice, Shadow of
the Wind, and reading e-books on my iPod that I'd be ashamed to
carry around in paperback.
Favorite movies include Spellbound (a little-known Hitchcock), The
Departed, Love Actually, and pretty much any James Bond.
I watch far too much TV.
When it comes to music, I am a serial monogamist. I'll discover a
band, fall in love and listen to their music obsessively for
anywhere between one and several weeks before moving on to a new

I get incredibly awkward in group situations where everyone else
knows each other but I don't know anyone (or only one person). This
usually causes me to come off as quiet and shy, which is not
strictly true. I'll admit I'm an introvert, but in one-on-one type
situations I can have a conversation just fine with someone I've
never met before. It's only in groups that I wind up in
