Hi, I'm new here

All about me:
My username is Arathald (duh).

I'm from Chicago, Illinois, USA, but currently living in Japan (Nonoichi, near Kanazawa, in Ishikawa prefecture), and will be there for about another months or so. After that, I'll be moving to Seattle, where I'll be working for Microsoft.

The reason I'm currently in Japan is to study the Japanese language, which I speak (barely) conversationally, but being in Japan is making it much better. I also am semi-fluent in Spanish (in fact, I'm technically a native speaker of both English and Spanish).

My real first name is Greg, feel free to call me that. My Japanese name is 和守 (kazumori), given to me because it has the same meaning as my given name, Gregory (it means, roughly, defender of peace, or friendly guardian); feel free to call me that as well.

I just graduated from a very good technical college with a Bachelor's degree in Computer Science, and, as I said, I'll be going to work for Microsoft in Seattle, who I interned for last year and absolutely loved it.

Among other things, I love to read books (my favorite being The Man Who was Thursday by GK Chesterton), watch movies (my favorite being Stranger than Fiction (2006)), and sing (karaoke, in front of people, to myself, whatever). I also dabble in writing, and of course, enjoy programming quite a bit. I used to be a very avid runner and cyclist, and am planning on taking both back up now that I'll actually have time, not having college to worry about anymore for a while.

Lastly, I'm gay -- I don't hide that fact, and even though I don't consider it to define me, it definitely shows in my personality and interests at times, and I find interactions with people a lot smoother and natural if I put that out on the table right away.

If there's anything else you'd like to know, just ask me. Also sorry for this post being rather scatter-brained and kind of out of order, it's 2AM here and my brain has shut down for the night.

Welcome 和守

I think we have a keeper! I like you! ;)
But then, I am one of many local GF whores, so I tend to like everyone (ps, thanks for the heads up - I was going to flirt with you shamelessly - actually, can I still??? :lol:).

Please do stick around. GF has something for everyone!

I loved Stranger than Fiction as well. Good taste!
