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