About Me

Hi, I'm Oishii. I'm a starving American college student.

I have been in college for a long time. I'll probably never graduate either. I'm majoring in Linguistics with a minor in Japanese as well as studying for a certification in translating. After school I will adventure off to Japan to either teach English as a second language or become a translator.

I'm a translator for this site. I've been speaking Japanese for about 4 years. I've lost count really. The reason I love Japan and learning about Japanese goes back to when I was in 6th grade. We had a unit on Egypt, and through that I fell in love with Egyptian mythology. I went through reading about mythologies until I reached Shinto. Once while on the internet I read somewhere that Shinto still has many influences in their modern culture. Intrigued, I started researching the culture to see if I could find traces of Shinto influences and I fell in love with the country.

I enjoy other things other than my obsession with Japan. I spend my spare time reading, drawing, gaming, and writing. I also like to cook, though most of the time I'm making desserts. I've been into reading light novels from Asian countries lately. I barely have time to draw anymore, but most of the time it's fanart anyways. I like most rpgs, my top favorites being KH (of course), Professor Layton, Ico and Shadow of the Colossus. I don't write too much since I have to write a lot for school. I'm in a middle of a silly Egyptian mythology tale, and I'm working on another darker story taking place in 19th century Chicago.

What else can I say. I'm a very shy person. If you talk to me in the chat and I don't reply, 99% of the time it's because I have no idea what to say and I'm most likely freaking out. Trust me, it's quite the sight to behold. Which is why I don't have a webcam... Well, if you want to know more about me, talk to me in the forum. I'm done talking about myself :P

P.S. My favorite Egyptian gods are Amun and Anubis ^^

I'm so mad right now. My dad came in saying my nephew left the house door open and my sister just sits on her butt not checking if the cats are in the house. I search the house and when I don't find one of them THEN she takes it seriously. We found her in the garage, so she was out but not outside luckily.

"We call that person who has lost his father, an orphan; and a widower that man who has lost his wife. But that man who has known the immense unhappiness of losing a friend, by what name do we call him? Here every language is silent and holds its peace in impotence." --Joseph Roux

    I want to actually develop on mine. And developing a 3D game takes up a whole bunch of RAM and CPU.

    That's also a big motivator for me. I want a computer that can handle Maya well so I can do 3D modeling again.

I'm done with taking Japanese classes, just done. It helped me out a lot getting started, but at this point all the classes are teaching me are how to pass Japanese tests. I know how to learn a language for myself better than they can teach it.

    I don't drink. I just feel completely unprepared this semester. It's probably lingering reverse culture shock...

Don't you love when a store gives you a coupon for an item and then doesn't carry the item at their store? Such phishing BS.

    I'm not too sure. As much as I love both the movie and book, that was not my intention to reference it.
