… I’m totally at a loss for this section…

I currently live and work in Japan in Kyoto city.  I worked in Fukuchiyama, Kyoto prefecture for almost a year, then went to Kyoto city proper.  Both times I was working as an English language teacher of some sort.

I graduated from the University of Maryland in Summer, ’07 with a bachelor’s in Japanese Studies.  I like sociology, linguistics, film, and language study.

I think the categories of posts will let you know pretty well what I am interested in.


My blog starts when I was at Illinois Wesleyan University. I subsequently went to Northern Virginia Community College for two years after I left IWU, but I don’t know if I mention it.
