Hi, I'm Kira. I'm 20. If you're looking at my journal you probably know me already, but I'll spit out a little About Me anyway.

I'm from New York but I'm studying abroad in Japan (at the University of Tsukuba) till early July 09. I'm a fine arts major (photography) but I really have no idea what I want to do with my life--aside from maybe owning a business.

I'm addicted to the internet and food (I love cooking) and more recently, House. I've got one super-good friend here, Jesie. She's from Indiana. My two best friends back home are Tom and Alex, but I'm also great friends with a good chunk of other people from high school--mostly, the ones that I worked with when I worked for my town's movie theatre for 2 1/2 years (I still do the website). Dannie, Mariquita, Amanda and Eddie all work (or worked) at the theatre with me, and I love them all. So if you see me mention them here, you'll know who I'm talking about. :)

So far I love Japan. I wish my language skills were better, but I'm trying to improve as I go along. Don't ask me to translate, though--I suck at kanji, so I may not be able to even read what you show me.

Not much else to say. If you're interested in seeing more touched-up versions of some of the photos I post, feel free to go check out my flickr account (there's a link up above). Leave comments if you do!

Oh, and by the way, I'm on Skype a lot more often than I'm on any other instant messenger. You can also find me on facebook if you know my last name; I'm on there a lot, too.
