Well.. anime, manga, and video games. I also like the culture and I may go back to Japan one day. Who knows, I may need it for a career.

That's been my lifelong dream. But it's so hard to find those kinds of jobs in America :(


:D
Two muffins were baking in an oven. One turns to the other and says "sure is hot in here." The other replies "AH TALKING MUFFIN!"

二つのマフィンがオーブンで焼かれていた。片方のマフィンがもう一方のマフィンに向かって、"暑いね”と言った。すると、話しかけられたほうのマフィンは"アッ!喋るマフィンだ!”と驚いた。 :)

I am learning Japanese because I will be teaching there soon :D . I love the food, culture, women and just about everything else. I've studied Russian/Spanish/French/Chinese(putonghua) . . . I think Russian fascinated me (probably just because of the cyrillic alphabet) second to Japanese.. But I don't have any intension to go to russia again.

So I'm ready for some bukkake!!! (and no, not the americanized depictation of bukkake)

OH yah... I'm pretty obsessed with Japanese dramas.. example : densha otoko, my hero my boss, Gokusen, hana yori dango, akihabara@deep n so on :P
Why is the Japanese restaurant here owned and operated by Koreans? :)

I want to learn Japanese because, I really like manga and anime, so it would be cool to be able to understand what characters are saying without having to watch and read the subtitles. Also, I'm really interested with different cultures and stuff like that so, it makes sense.
