My self-summary
I love meat - and I used to be a vegetarian for 7 years. That was before the Japanese taught me how delicious octopus tentacles could be. I lived in Japan for a few years after college where I had the philosophy of "Say yes to everything." As such I walked on fire, ate Fugu (before I knew you could die from it), learned that mochi+red bean soup is pretty tasty, but natto+raw egg+rice is not, and enjoyed "the Naked Man Festival" (really enjoyed it)....
What I’m doing with my life
I recently moved out here following my dream job, where I get to solve puzzles all day and get paid to use my Japanese language skills. All that studying has finally paid off. Being in Koreatown is a bit like living in a Korean drama, now all I need is the love interest
(^ ^)

I don't actually like travelling, but I seem to do it a lot! I've been all about Asia, a bit of Europe, and love discovering beautiful or unusual places.
Next Stop: ???
I’m really good at
being funny...in person...well, some people find me funny .-.
The first things people usually notice about me
my eyes
on a different level, that I'm empathetic. People seem to enjoy telling me their life's story. I am an INFJ so maybe that isn't surprising.
