Sendai Anonymous; or relax, I’m just trollin’
I decided I needed to put some relevant and important information here, after all. Like my zodiac sign.
Blood type: O
Zodiac sign: Pisces
Favourite book: Blind Assassin (Atwood), stuff by Georges Perec, stuff by Italo Calvino, stuff by Umberto Eco, stuff by Walter Benjamin, stuff by Stefan Zweig, stuff by de Quincey, Sarashina Nikki, stuff by JL Borges, stuff by Akutagawa Ryuunosuke, stuff by Ihara Saikaku, Konjaku monogatari, stuff by Stanislaw Lem, stuff by Isaac B Singer, stuff by Vladimir Nabokov, and far too many others.
Hates: Haruki Murakami (I used not to care, but the more people insist he’s brilliant — haha, no — the more I feel like saying HAHA NO STFU)
Favourite food: COFFEE, kimchi, squid and other seafood, pears, celery, arugula
Hates: sweet stuff, sweet chocolate, licorice
Favourite uni subject: reading (regardless of language and period and scope)
Hates: any sort of conversation classes; hopefully, I will never have to make a presentation about abortion/death penalty/educational system in my country ever again BUT WHAT IF A DECIDE TO PICK UP ANOTHER LANGUAGE BETTER NOT D:
Hobby: reading, collecting books, having no life, saying “it’s unscientific”, swearing, saying “you’re wrong”, saying “you’d better rethink your entire approach to life, really” <— but I only say this in Japanese, it sounds good in Japanese
Dislikes: rain, when I want to go out but everybody went abroad/back to their country D:, having to keep my notes and post-its in order, having to clean my desk, having to warn people not to come close to the desk because of the risk of book avalanche, when I don’t know what to read next
Also, my zodiac sign is Pisces.
I am a very anonymous person who writes incognito about a place absolutely not called Sendai that is in a country that isn’t Japan at all, and well, it’s all a totally secret secret. I also most certainly do not froth at the mouth at the sight of Bad Cognitive Science AGAIN SNAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARL. Hush!
(It’s all lies. My name is actually Sara, I’m finishing my Akkadian Studies MA and Japanese Studies BA. I’m a linguist.
Linguist-linguist, not “linguist”.
I’m also not American.
Update! I’m now in a tiny tiny tiny tininess of a city that on most maps looks like a spot left by an overeager person with a bottle of bleach trying to clean Germany.
This place is absolutely not called Mainz. I also don’t slobber all over our wee collection of clay tablets. Not at all.
