5 random facts about yourself and then tag 10 people of your choice.
- I am the child of a mother who used to rescue stray cats and kittens, and so have helped raise a grand total of 17 fur-babies thus far (that includes Daemon).
- I play a lot of video games, and have managed to hold onto just about every game I’ve ever played. My collection is up to about 1,500 titles starting in the NES/Sega Master System era up to present.
- I studied abroad in Japan for two semesters as part of my Japanese Cultural Studies minor, during which time I worked as an English teacher’s assistant and tutor at a middle school, and then as an intern for the International Relations department of Toyohashi, Japan. I used to be proficient enough to pass the JLPT sankyuu certification but it’s been like a decade since I used my Japanese for anything other than critiquing fansubs and reading imported manga/video games.
- As a teenager I used to help fansub anime for Anime-Kraze. I tried my hand at translation at first but since I was still fairly new to the language I took too long to translate episodes and so I switched to typesetting instead.
- I am a second-generation IT worker. My mom started working in IT in the late 70’s/early 80’s for the University of Toledo, back when the entire IT department was like five people (it’s currently about ~300, fyi). I work as the lead of the IT department at a software development company in Cleveland, Ohio.
