Dream chasers come from all backgrounds and all walks of life. Each one has their own story to tell and their own lessons that they have learned. Read more on this dream chaser below.
1. Get proficient enough in Japanese to pass the JLPT N3
2. Visit every Disney and Harry Potter theme park.
1. My love of manga, anime, J-pop/J-rock, and Japanese pop culture and fueled my desire to learn Japanese. I was inspired to go further than I did in college when Jason and I decided to visit Japan (his first, my second time). Since we plan to go back to Japan (as part of the #2 dream) and want to visit less touristy areas, I want to go even further.
2. I love Disney and love Harry Potter, so to try to get to all of them is a no-brainer for me. Plus, it gets me to cool cities along the way! ^_^
1. Been taking classes at Japanese American Society of Washington and trying to expose myself to Japanese every way I can (anime, manga, songs) in my spare time.
2. Making plans and learning Japanese. ^_^
My family (for their encouragement and coming with me on my crazy journeys).
Time (classes can sometimes be at inconvenient times, balancing homework and study time with daily duties), Money (The parks and international travel aren’t cheap).
“F**k ’em” which basically means “Don’t be concerned with what others think. As long as you’re not hurting anyone, do your thing.”
Ignore all the voices that give you reasons to put off following your dreams. Tomorrow becomes the past way too quickly.
I can’t just pick one. I’d have to say my mom and dad both inspire me. Dad through his continued artistic pursuits and travel. Mom for her attitude.
Not really a quote, but I find myself reciting “Invictus” by William Ernest Henley rather frequently.
Any Disney or Harry Potter theme park. Also, Japan.
