Hello readers. You are clicking on this page because you want some more information on the guy who is reblogging a life experience that happened 10 years ago (possibly more depending on when you are reading this).
My name is Andrew and I was born in Comox, Canada in July 1978. I grew up in a small town outside of Winnipeg. In high school I was the kid who didn’t play sports and listened to “weird” music.
In University I spent two years working on a computer science degree before realizing that I didn’t really like computer science. After a two year hiatus filled with part time classes and work I returned to University to get a business degree with a major in accounting. The goal was to graduate, get an accounting designation, and then get a job and work for the rest of my life.
Along the way I took into to Japanese as an elective course. I loved the course so much that I followed up with Intermediate Japanese and then decided to spend a year teaching English in Japan. As you will learn my reading the blog, one year in Japan ended up turning into three.
I returned to Canada in late 2006, got my professional accounting designation, and now work a manager for a large Canadian corporation. I am happily married to a wonderful woman, and we just welcomed our first child in February 2014. Read about the story of our son’s birth here.
When I am not crunching numbers and taking care of the baby, I spend my time playing video games, watching movies, learning how to play the bass guitar, listening to music, blogging music videos on Tumblr, watching UFC, and of course, drinking beer. I am also a big fan of the Winnipeg Jets (GO JETS GO!).
My goal in life is to retire at a sensible age and spend summers in Canada and winters in Japan.
Thanks for reading!
