I come from a warm, generous family and my mom is like my best friend. I can be an emotional person, I'm highly sentimental, but I also think things through logically and aim towards being reasonable. I'm highly affectionate but also sometimes clumsy.
I lived in Japan for five years and have strong ties to the culture, but I promise I'm not too much of a weirdo. I mean, not that kind of weirdo, anyway.
I also work at a yarn store because I love to knit.
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Graceling, The Lunar Chronicles, Harry Potter. Fantasy that doesn't involve elves and dwarves and swords and wars. Character-driven plots with fun dialogue and fluid writing. I still love high school romance. I read manga, too. 99% of the books I read are children's books, partially due to my job and partially because I just love them. I have a To Be Read pile a mile deep.
Disney movies, witty and comedic movies, high concept movies, dramas that explore social justice and other cultures. No horror though.
If it's well acted or thought provoking I'll probably try it. I guess the common theme is "clever." I love Brooklyn 99 and Leverage, as well as Modern Family. Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood, Ouran High School Host Club, and Hyouka are high on my list for anime.
I listen to the radio a lot. I like pop and celtic/folksy music. Basically things that are hooky or pretty. I almost always prefer a female vocalist. If you wanna hear one of my favorite musicians, copypasta KOKIA 記憶の光 into the YouTubes.
Italian (pasta!), Japanese (not just sushi), and American, mostly. I can be kind of picky! I'm also a wimp when it comes to spicy things so I avoid.
The world around me.
The media I consume.
How to be better.
But usually I'm a very in-the-moment person.
On my days off, I try to catch up with chores and do some nice things for myself. I see friends when I get a chance and go out to movies or dinner.
Message me if you would go with me to Disney movies, if we could read stories aloud to each other, if we could play board games and video games, if we could go to museums, if we could go explore new places and take photographs and go on hikes, if curling up on rainy days with some tea and a movie sounds good.
I'll also probably want to knit you things, so be prepared for that.
