Hello! I'm Rin! Not new to LJ, but I thought I would try again as I really miss the sense of community and friendships I fostered on here (tumblr and twitter are fun, but they just aren't the same, IMO!)

A little bit about me:

✩ I'm originally from the Metro Detroit area of Michigan in the USA, but then I moved to Shanghai, China for my MA and now I live in Poland with my husband (who I married December 10th!) I am literally the only mixed Asian girl I know here and I feel VERY detached from my culture, but it's definitely been an adventure learning more about Poland and Europe.

✩ I am a language teacher- I mainly teach English but I also teach Mandarin Chinese and sometimes Japanese. However, I'm working on attempting to continue in my actual field of study, which was philosophy.

✩ I am a HUGE nerd- I am getting into cosplay and I love games, books, as well as anime. (I'm so so so SO happy there is a cosplay and anime/gaming con culture here!) Main fandoms: Star Wars, Fate/Stay Night, Sailor Moon, Gundam, Final Fantasy, Phantom of the Opera, and I will always have a soft spot for Sonic games as I grew up with them (as well as the comics, but I don't read those much anymore). I also enjoy RWBY, and fantasy books such as Kushiel's Legacy and Black Jewels Trilogy.

✩ I'm a witch, but I don't talk about it on my journal. The most you'll see is some aesthetic posts as I keep my spirituality/practises VERY private.

✩ I'm chronically ill and a spoonie, and will blog about it from time to time.

✩ I'm kind of huge into fashion and makeup too, especially Japanese and Korean fashion. It somehow ties into my cosplay dreams as well, haha.

✩ I'm right on the border of INFJ and INTJ, if anyone was curious.

Let's be friends?

You sound quite interesting. I'm an INTJ myself. You can read more about me on my profile if you like.

You have excellent taste in quotes and authors! May I add?

Of course! I'll add you.

Hello Rin. Well Metro Detroiter still, so that caught my attention. INTP-A now though. This is a new journal, but been a long time LJ user. Also a big phantom of the opera fan.

Yay for fellow Metro Detroiters! How is the area lately? I hope my husband and I can visit soon.
