Lately, I've been into cooking. Very simple pasta dishes and/or traditional Japanese meals.
I've also finally picked up running. Turning 30 was a big punch in the face of how time was just flying by...
I suck at it, but absolutely love golf!!
Been into photography and grab my DSLR and snap shots whenever I hit up a new city while traveling, mainly for work...
To be honest, it may seem shallow, but my goals and aspirations are more number based... meaning that I simply want to hit certain income brackets by certain ages. I'm a sales/marketing manager in the food industry, more specifically confectionery and I enjoy my job very much. Sweet tooth, I am. =P
I'm an ESTJ. Look it up and you'll see what type of personality I have.
Very goal oriented, very social... meh... just google it and read it... it's almost gross how accurate the thing is and I'm not too proud of that...
I've grown up in a traditionally Japanese household and lived in Tokyo for 6yrs from 20-25 where I actually got my bachelors with an English major focusing on SLA and phonetics. I even have 5 English Conversation Study Reference books that I've co-published in Japan. But I still can't get over the fact that I was born and raised in the states, but I studied English in Japan... but whatever...
I can talk forever... but I've gotten better at gauging if people are getting bored... so I'll stop about here in regards to my "uniqueness".
I was raised by a tiger mom and was pretty much forced to play classical piano from 3 to 19.
Had annual piano recitals and even piano competitions as I got older... I hated it at the time, but I actually enjoy listening to classical music from time to time, when I feel stressed or feel the need to ease some tension. I still recall the summer after sophomore yr of HS, I walked into the piano competition hall wearing a suit with spiky bleached hair and Hot Topic hoop earrings and got 1st place for passionately playing Rachmaninov. Take that!! Other nerdy Asian ****es!! I was rebellious, but not rebellious enough to quit piano... yea... very hardcore, I am... (-_-;
Other than that, I grew up listening to the typical hip hop / R&B. I really miss the good ole' slow jams from back in the days with BoysIImen, AzYet, KC & JoJo, Brian McKnight, Joe, 98 degrees, etc. I still sing those at karaoke every once in a while. I have my days where I'll pump myself up with Blink182, Sum41, KoRn, Limp Bizkit, Linkin where I don't know the words so I'll just scream in my car... or other pump-up music such as EDM-ish stuff like deadmau5, Tiesto, Swedish House Mafia and of course, the typical pop music like BEP, Far East Movement, maroon5, etc.
I don't know if this is really fem or possibly that I'm getting too old..., but lately I've been listening to a lot of Lily Allen, Pomplamoose... this rather... easy listening... style...?
