Illustrator, artist, pleasantly bonkers. INTJ. Generally confused and absent-minded. Possibly overly intellectual.

This journal started waaaaay back with my student exchange to Nagoya, Japan, including trials, triumphs and paper-making. Finished my third and final year of a British degree course in 2003. Up until January, it covered my adventures taking care of my Grandmother in Connecticut, where I hadn't lived since childhood. I learned to trap raccoons, which is one of the oddest things to add to CV in a while. So far still failing my resolution as of Jan 2004: to get shed my laziness and write the damn Abe no Seimei novel I've been pondering for the past five years. Grr. Currently, the journal covers my thinking about starting my own business versus working for the man.

Read at own risk.
