Personal text: ある抽象としての人物像

Majored in Japanese at university in US, In Tokyo again starting master's program now. I've been studying Japanese for about 8 years and listened to a lot of metal obsessively since middle school (In Flames, CoB, Opeth, Dark Tranquillity, etc back then). Very introverted since I was a kid, no partying, never actually had to work much. Just listened to metal, lifted weights, and memorized a lot of Japanese vocab that most people don't even understand over here. What the hell was I thinking?

I'm most notably a Jari Maenpaa worshiper. I'm open to a lot of different genres, but so long as there is melody and some kind of emotional maturity in song writing. Which I know very well might by completely subjective. I no longer try to justify my own musical interests, and I'm saddened when people refuse to compromise their own opinions.
