Hello, everyone. My name is Christina but my friends call me either Cjiadon or Cj. I am twenty years old and am taking Japanese at my college. I am currently majoring in English and minoring in Japanese. After I graduate, I plan to go to Japan and teach English there for a year or two (longer if I like it a lot).

At my school, I am also vice president of the Japanese club so a lot of my free time during each semester is devoted to that. When I'm not at school, though, I like to watch anime with my boyfriend, Nathan. Some of my favorite shows are Black Cat, Shaman King, and Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha. I also like watching American shows too like Firefly, O'Grady and Friends. I enjoying reading a lot as well. My favorite genre is supernatural. I particularly enjoy stories about vampires and witches and creatures like that.

Right now I live in Minnesota near Minneapolis, but I am originally from Southern California. I hope to move back to California in the summer. I have never been outside the USA, except to Mexico, but I didn't like it there very much.

I think I've rambled enough now. I hope to be able to have great discussions with everyone and get to know everyone better in time.

Thank you for the warm welcome, everyone!

Being vice president of a club can be very tiring when school events happen, because we are expected to be a part of the major ones. Well also have a fall festival (Aki Matsuri) and although the festival isn't put on by the Japanese club at all, we are expected to volunteer for it. Working part of it can be very boring, but afterwards is usually fun. Last fall, we had a taiko group perform for us. It sounded wonderful.
