My self-summary
I'm an opinionated, outspoken nerd who is living in Fukuoka, Japan!!!!!! :D I graduated from OSU in linguistics and religious studies, and I am working on my MA in applied linguistics. I live for debates, being outside, crock pot meals, rpgs, and a good beer. I'm slowly learning more about wine although I've always enjoyed it. I'm a simple person, but I try to make the most of things.

I love being outside. Anytime I can I'm out for a walk, riding my bike to new/fun locations, at a park, or just outside doing SOMETHING even if it's just sitting on the front porch with my animals.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm currently living in Japan teaching English at an English immersion after school program. I love where I'm living, my job, and the kids I'm working with. I'm looking for any excuse to travel around Japan so that I can see as much as possible.
I’m really good at
I'm pretty good at talking for hours about anything that I happen to deem interesting. I really enjoy a good conversation/debate.

Crafting. I will take your used everything and make them into a new something awesome.

I'm a really good listener. I can identify with people fairly easily.
The first things people usually notice about me
The fact that I'm a Gaijin. Source: Japan.

Also, that I'm not so normal. This is usually realized about 2 minutes into the initial conversation.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My favorite books are a series of fantasy novels by Jacqueline Carey; The Kushiel's Legacy Series.
I really enjoy could I not. He's an amazing story teller and made up some FANTASTIC languages.

I'm in love with "fantasy-esque" action films. King Arther, LOTR, Braveheart, etc. I'm really into imaginative films...if you would call them that...films like mirror mask, coraline, etc...slapstick comedy, the occasional romantic comedy, horror films...really anything but cheesy love stories or mobster flicks.

Music...well...I really do love a little bit of everything. I'm into Metal first and foremost. Folk metal, power metal, death metal, black metal. Also, 60's & 70's rock, instrumental, traditional cultural music, indie, bluegrass, keeps going. I'm really not a fan of rap or country, If you have talent...I will enjoy your music.

Food? well I just like food. I don't question it. I just eat it. I'll try everything twice.

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'll admit "private" things when I'm in matter how close I am with you. so yeah. wait for those spontaneous statements.
You should message me if
Message me if you're interested in trying new things, enjoying doing random things, and are just a genuinely good person. Also, if you can stand my stupid nerdy moments :) then we'll get along fantastically :)

I AM NOT INTERESTED IN MILITARY MEN, unless you have an amazing friendship to offer. The messages I have been getting remind me of how much I dislike military men. I will, most likely, not answer your messages.
The two of us
