I study Japanese!

継続は力なり

I started off with three beginner level Japanese courses offered by the language center at my uni. Once they were over I continued learning on my own.

I tinker with tech!

Mostly in terms of software though.

Linux systems, tools, games, ... tinker with all the things! What you see above is one of my Raspberry Pis.

I have a website!

It's a clunky pile of Python but I don't care. :)

Started doing this in 2005. Content changes over time as do my interests.
