As I wake up each morning I try to look at the sunrise and start each day by saying, "おはよう". A lot of people believe that if you speak positivity at the beginning of each day you will experience it throughout that day. I also believe that saying おはよう each morning, in a way, gives thanks for the opportunity to experience another day. I want to start being more thankful.

Lately I have been juggling a lot of things, which is a situation I seem to get myself in quite often. I start several projects and then put pressure on myself to stay up-to-date with all of them in a short time period. Lately I have been focusing on my overall health and wellness, which includes me going to the gym and posting about it on Instagram in order to maintain a sense...

It's funny to me that the last time I posted was nearly a full year ago. A lot has happened in the past year, and I will admit that I've been swept up in a lot of things that have pulled my attention several different ways. I've been working hard at my day job (the IT world never sleeps) and I've even taken on another startup position with a new company that's been set up called Triquetra Entertainment. I'm working with them to help promote tabletop games in the American market.

Sometimes months can fly by and it feels like an instant. It's like a single moment in time where you blink and when you open your eyes you've timeshifted and have no idea where your minutes went. I think that's what I'm feeling right now. It's been a long time since my last post, and I need to get some sort of update out here.

Over the years I've created blogs, made vlog channels, and done all sorts of things trying to compartmentalize my thoughts. Never have I really put them together in one place. Over the past couple of weeks I've been making a lot of changes to my life and one of them starts here: this blog is going to be my hub. I am going to post whatever I see fit here and try to turn this into my central haven. I'm a fan of so many things: games, anime, manga, food, traveling, lang...

While my life has been rather busy with travel for work, I've put my hiragana studies on hold in favor of my art skills. I've been working on a lot of sketching, specifically of characters and such from manga and anime!
