ABOUT ME ▪ 自己紹介
My name is Tom. I was born on August 24, 1988, which makes me 24 years old. I (somewhat) recently graduated from college with a Japanese major. I've been studying Japanese for over 6 years now, but I still have a lot to learn. Since graduating I've been doing a lot of self-study so I don't lose my language skills but it can be tough, especially living in an area with few Japanese-speaking people. As of now I'm not sure what kind of career I would like to have. I can see myself being a translator or working for some kind of group dealing with human or animal rights.

As of December 2, 2012 my layout header features Ke$ha with lyrics from her song "Die Young," and was created by me using Paint Shop Pro 9 and Photoshop CS6.

The layout itself was created by silentevocation @ fleeting_days (the code can be found here).

Here's a list of LJ users/communities and websites that I am crediting for various graphics related things:
