I doubt I’ll ever stop editing.
+ along the SouthEastern side of the United Statesl now relocated to the MidWest
+ Taiwanese-American (yes, therefore Asian. Get over it.)
+ the violin, music, studying music, reading, libraries of all kinds and natures, video games (but not necessarily playing them), wordplay, Batman, and all manner of other strange things
+ Music is my life. Over the years, I’ve studied such a variety that at this point, I’m willing to listen or perform or just learn about pretty much any genre as long as it doesn’t cause physical damage. But Classical music has my eternal respect and appreciation. It will save the world.
Listing specific favourites of mine in music would take forever because distinguishing between those that I “love” and those that I just “like” is a near-impossible task. So just read the blog. Every post is probably related to something musical in one way or another.
+ Kiyo-chan (or kiyochan, occasionally kiyokiyo), is an old online alias from the days when giving out your real name was unheard of. It’s a take on the Japanese word for “pure” and derived from my mostly fabricated instant messaging screenname from back in the day… It’s used intermittently now, though some lovable oddballs out there still address me by this name.
+ Simple things like a clear breezy day, well written music, daises (as opposed to more complexly arranged flowers – unless in mathematical context in which case, I suppose anything goes), water running down a hill after a storm, or just being happy in general fascinate me.
+ Bookstores and libraries are dangerous places. I get stuck in them for far too long.
+ I’m an ambiance, cuteness, and caffeine junkie…though not necessarily all at the same time.
+ I’ve been trying for many years now to buy a kite (red, probably – in tribute to Calvin and Hobbes) in order to take full advantage of perfectly weathered kite-flying days. But there’s apparently been a lot of trouble achieving the first step in this plan…
+ I’m hopelessly addicted to playing in pit orchestras and working in orchestra and opera libraries…
+ …But a part of me is probably still hoping eventually to turn into Hiroaki Yura.
+ Apologies for rambling and seemingly random or non-sequiturs. My brain tends to work far faster than my fingers or mouth. Perhaps I am as much an idiot as I give the impression of sometimes, but really-who really knows anymore?
