I have been wanting to start a blog for a very long time now. I wanted to write a little bit about myself. I graduated in late 2011 with a B.A. in English Literature, but I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life. I decided after a lot of hesitation to move to South Korea to teach English. During that time, I learned a lot about myself. I taught high school students for two years and I visited Japan twice while I was living in Korea. After my time in Korea, I moved back to the States where I had a very difficult time landing a job. I applied for the JET Program, and I was accepted this past year. I am currently living and working in Japan.
I have been a fan of anime for a very long time. During middle and high school, I was obsessed with sports but after a friend introduced me to Kingdom Hearts and Fire Emblem, I became a much more interested gamer. It was during high school that I stumbled upon a random anime episode late at night and have been a very avid fan of anime ever since. While I would consider watching anime my main hobby, I absolutely love to read and learn as much as I can about video games and frequent news sites daily.
My aim for this blog is to act as a means for me to actively start writing after putting it off for far too long. It will be focused around anime and games, but it will also talk about my life in Japan on occasion. I hope that you, the reader, will take something away from this blog, and I look forward to embarking on this journey to become a better writer.
