My (real, very real) name is Nana, my secret codename is Oniko -- wait, d'oh... I'm 27 years old, but for reasons you will probably find out if you friend me you will realise I'm ~mentally~ a lot younger. I used to study Japanese, East Asian Cultures & literature and sociolinguistics, but I had to drop out because of my illness getting worse. I'm not a ~typical~ Japanophile (no offense, but you know who you are, I still love you, most of the time)
I was born in Finland, but I'm not a Finn. That is also a bit of a long and rather boring story, so let's just say I'm a world citizen. English is my 3rd language, but the one I use the most nowadays. I've lived in London, England and Perth, Australia, apart from in this little town where I was born.
I love literature, but more than anything I love music, because it pushes the most buttons in my brain. My favourite band is Perfume! (I'm obsessed with the 1980s - I was born in 1984, arguably the most 80s year of all time, booya!) Most films I watch are B-horror movies from the 80s. Favourite films; The Wicker Man (with Christopher Lee, of course + all Dracula Hammer Horror films he was in) and Ferris Bueller's Day off. Plus George Romero, Dario Argento, Sam Raimi, and guys like that.
I'm also obsessed with knowing things, learning things about peoples, cultures, science, medicine, and so forth. I speak quite a few languages and I've always got plans in my head about which one I would like to learn next. Still, right now I'm focusing on Japanese and at least mastering basic Hangul (Korean alphabet).
I love computer games, especially what kids call "retro" these days. Two buttons and a D-pad is all you need. Or even one button and a joystick. Still, I do play WoW, so if you absolutely hate that game, do not friend me. Oh, and I'm an Alliance girl, but not a Horde hater, diplomacy is the key. Still, if you hate Draenei... no, no... D:. I also do play random PC games, last game I really loved was Mass Effect, Dragon Age and Portal, of course ^.^
I have used LJ since 2010, but since web 2.0 most people have migrated to push-button publishing boring soulless blogging. I want LJ friends. Just people who update pretty regularly, doesn't have to be massive entries (but not just memes, please, that's sooo 2003 D:)
So if you think I sound interesting, or if you would like to add a friend to your flist, who is well, generally friendly and attentive and always lending an ear (or eye, really) & commenting as much as I can then, please add me! Oh, but keep in mind I don't tolerate conservative narrow-mindedness, sexism, bigotry, anti-semitism, racism and other evils.
Now I have nothing left to say, so here is a picture of me with a stuffed moose;
