Why do you want to go to Japan: I have a love for the culture and language, and I want to study over there. I also want to visit Japan to see what it's really like because no matter what you read on the internet, you can only make honest opinions about a place through your own experiences, not other people's. I may not like Japan once I'm over there; I may love it and possibly want to live there. However, I won't know until I actually visit.
A little about me: Just a 17-year old girl who has a strange fascination with Japan and its culture. I'm a senior in high school (woot!) and am graduating in May. I've already picked my college, and I plan to major in biochemistry and minor in Japanese (strange combination, huh?). I really enjoy learning (gasp!) and want to become a pharmacist or some kind of engineer. Anyways I found this forum randomly one day, and decided to join because not that many people in my area have the same interests as me... I really enjoy Japanese music, however I'm not really into anime or manga. Just not my type of entertainment. I would like to meet people on here for the common reason many other people joined for probably. This is getting kind of long, so that's my "about me" paragraph.
One more thing, I like to type a lot of smilies.

I just spent about 30 minutes typing up a giant text wall of an introduction, but apparently I got signed out so the whole thing was lost...

Anyways, my name is Clinton, and I'm an 18 year old male living on the coast of Massachusetts in the USA. Online I'm relatively out going, but in real life I'm very quiet and withdrawn because of my diagnosis with AS (Asperger Syndrome). AS is a form of High Functioning Autisim. People with AS can be characterised as intelligent, but lack social skills such as the ability to read peoples emotions in their facial expressions and vocal tone. They tend to avoid most people for this reason, as they become anxious and uncomfortable around them. Also, people with AS generally act in patterns, eating the same foods, watching the same shows, going to the same places, etc... While there are not many, and not always true, there are also some physical characteristics/tenancies of AS such as walking with their hands behind their backs, walking the tips of the toes, hand wringing, hypermobility, and increased sensitivity to light/sound. Some fictious characters suspected of having AS include House, L Ryuzaki, and more particuarly Sheldon from The Big Bang Theory, while some real life people with AS are Albert Einstein, George Washington, and Beethoven.

But enough about that. As I suspect is the reason for a lot of people being here, I'm here to learn more about about Japan, Japanese culture, and Japanese society. And so instead of relisting my other interests here, I think I'll just copy and paste a bunch of them I posted on another site... Computers, programming, technology, robotics, virtual reality, augmented reality, time travel, teleportation, cloning, bio-engineering/enhancing, knives, weapons systems, space, anything zombie related, movies, music, video games, etc... So basically, I'm a bit of a nerd. Though I'm glad I don't look so much like one.

Hmmm... Looks like another text wall. I gotta work on that I guess. Anyways, feel free to ask me any questions you might have, AS related or not. Generally speaking, I'm a happy person and I believe people have good intentions, so it's pretty difficult to offend me.

Hi everyone.
I live in Utsunomiya, my husband's Japanese. And since these days I don't have very many people around me who can speak English, I came here.
So, see you around!

G'day from Australia. I saw this website and thought it an excellent step forward for international together-ness!

I love Guitars. Talk to me about Ibanez or ESP guitars and I will be your best forum friend!
