Seriously. I just wanted to take a language different from what all the other students at university were taking, and wound up in Japanese. For some reason, it was strange and different enough for me to fall in love with it.
Since then, it's been eight years. I've since found that I love Japanese food, and have been studying Japanese cuisine for a while now, along with Buddhism and literature.
I couldn't be happier.
Talk about serendipity.

1) I am a student pilot, and I wish to fly for JAL or ANA, for their consistant and lucrative international missions.
2) I am also an independant research scientist in Aerospace Engineering (aircraft/spacecraft design). Nations willing to engage in major technological advancement, such as Japan, are a perfect place for me to work freely (unlike the U.S. where it's nearly illegal for certain research activities and aircraft designs to be tested)
3) The japanese culture is one of refinement and elegance, that few people in other countries can honestly treasure, as I do, and as I hope others here in the forum do.

So, honestly, there is no reason for me wanting to learn Japanese at the moment. Of course, learning Japanese could be the result of my voluntary isolation from the world. (And yet again, another long story)
