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 really depressed about getting Christmas presents this year. I told my family I honestly don't want anything but they insist that I have to have presents. I feel like making a Christmas list was me choosing what kind of coal I want.

    If they like the thought of giving you a present, then it won't be a waste for them. I've watched my mom sincerely enjoy finding presents for her relatives' kids. But if there's legitimately nothing you need, why not make it an event? Go somewhere you wouldn't ordinarily go to.

    I gave my birthday to charity:water last year. I suggested it again to my mother but she already made a donations to several charities this year and is not keen to give up my Christmas for another. I don't know where I could go either. Nothing interesting is close to where I live.

    Yikes. Could they be convinced to put the money in savings so you could donate it later?
    Regardless of what they do, I certainly hope things start looking up. It sounds like a frustrating ordeal. X|

Apparently at my Gamestop people were begging them to give them the LE w/ the pin even though they didn't preorder it. Looks like the pins are more popular than we thought (at least in my area, or those people are just douches).

    Haha! Welp, they should pre order.

I just beat Monstro and I'm heading to Atlantica. I've decided to run through and try to beat the game before tomorrow, homework be damned.

Well, my mouth was supposed to stop bleeding 5 hours ago. I think it's time to call the surgeon.

    I'll wait and see what my surgeon says, though I called 40 minutes ago >.>

Had all my wisdon teeth taken out today. Now my jaw is really numb and I can't talk. Good times!

    Normally there are only four, but I was a freak who grew two extras. That might've explained why just opening my jaw was harder than it should've been.

    If you're lucky, you might have no pain at all.

    My doctor said I could chew gum when the bleeding stops to keep my jaw from getting stiff so I might do that. Even though I don't like gum...
