I am Kuri. (Pronounced “KOO-ree,” but everyone calls me “KR-ree” because it’s easier.) It’s the Japanese word for “chestnut,” which has the symbolic meaning of “prosperity.”
I’m a nerdy, introverted, clean-eating vegan who’s recently lived in small towns in the USA. Hubby and I plan on living in Japan for a year or two, beginning in 2018!
I spend my time running/jogging, binge-watching my favourite movies/television, reading, playing video games (mostly RPG), learning Japanese and about Japanese culture, and fangirling over astronomy.
Goal For This Blog:
I want to make blogs about my life and adventures. While this isn’t a food blog, and I don’t enjoy cooking (which has nothing to do with veganism), I will sometimes show that it is possible to eat vegan no matter where you are, especially in non-vegan-friendly environments. Also, that there really is plenty to do when you live in a small town with “nothing to do.”
I’ve kept a diary since I was nine, so my entries tend to be long and very detailed — I don’t like to forget anything! However, I always spend more time going over my posts than writing them. This is not only to make sure I have all grammar, spelling and punctuation correct (and no, I don’t miss a lot of spelling — I just don’t spell in American English), but also to cut out any useless junk to keep the posts from being longer than they need to be.
