- Hi everyone! =)
I'm Chinese-Jamaican-Canadian. I was born in Kingston, Jamaica, where I spent a very happy childhood until I moved to Canada at nine and a half years old.
I graduated from McMaster University in 2007 with a double-major in Linguistics and Multimedia, and a minor in Japanese studies. (Ironically, my Japanese is a hundred times better than my Chinese, and my Chinese impersonation would severely offend any native speaker.)
I've been teaching English in Osaka, Japan, since October 2008 and am loving it! Every day I have wonderful students to laugh and have a good time with. This whole experience has powerfully reaffirmed my belief that good things wait around every corner. Every day unfailingly brings its blessings. I'm very grateful for the ways in which I've grown since I've come here.
By the way, I'm generally horrible at correspondence, so please forgive me if you leave a note and I don't get back to you for a while. I may not say anything, but I always appreciate your words.
And now some info about me that's old but still true...
I'm drawn to anything creative: writing, taking pictures, animating, designing, playing with tools like Photoshop and Flash, singing, dancing, and so on. But I spend more time on self-reflection than anything else. Life's beauty and perfection are my biggest interests. I love watching people do things they're passionate about -- activities that bring them to life -- especially dancing and singing.
I feel SO blessed to have such a wonderful family; Mom, Dad, my sister Mel, and my brother Nick are each truly one of a kind.
Other things I really love: dogs, nature -- balmy days, thunderstorms, autumn and late summer; people, heavenly smells, dreaming, reminiscing, bike riding, gaming, Jamaica, World of Warcraft and many other PC/Amiga/C64 games, the Japanese language and culture, plane rides, wild amusement park rides, and motorcycle rides. I remember and enjoy my dreams every night.
