"He is the shosei (student) to whom the earth is too small and the heavens are not high enough. He dwells in castles of air and feeds on ethereal words of wisdom. In his eyes beams the fire of ambition; his mind is athirst for knowledge." - Bushido: The Soul of Japan (Nitobe Inazo)

Just a traveling samurai scraping together photos and videos and random awesome. Often stuck between sleep and studying under the watchful eye of graduate school. Here for the fangirl support groups. Sometimes found watching TV with dear friends I don't live near on Skype for the hilarious banter that makes such hours enjoyable.

For randomness feel free to ask. Stay well and travel safe. PS - DFTBA

 

Early Voting (2012): Early voting started today and I managed to get my stickers before the 3 hour drive back home for evening classes. Whatever your positions, I hope those of you in the states are exercising your right to vote. And I hope those of you outside the states are exercising you right to absentee vote. I used my absentee vote when I was in Japan. I remember my colleagues there telling me in Japan if you were out of the country you just didn’t vote and were surprised that I could do so by mail. I was glad I could still vote then. I actually enjoyed absentee voting more because I would never forget. In fact, I probably voted more abroad simply because I would always get a ballot in the mail for any election or voting decision. Anyways, go forth and vote.
