”Speaking of Old, Valuable Things”
Internet Architect, Otaku, Loves Anime and Japan
I am Kris (online often called Voltie). I am an Otaku who will one day live in Japan. Right now I live in Virginia in the United States, which I love and will always love. But I will bury my bones in Japan one day. Before that day, I want to live in Japan. I want to enjoy Japan's harmony and culture, while also helping Japan grow and thrive. I can't enjoy Japan unless Japan can enjoy having me there. Perhaps I can help Japan or a Japanese company improve their Internet capabilities, help tighten security or somehow benefit the society with my computer abilities.
I'm middle age, 48 years old, so not a spring chicken anymore. I look younger than I am, sometimes its a problem as people think I'm 30-something. I have two wonderful children who live with me. I have always been the caretaker and loving father to my kids, who are now all grown up! (16 and 21 years old!). My kids and I are close, closer than most parents are with their kids. This is partly because I am playful, like to laugh at funny things and am not in a rush to be old. I don't mind my age at all, I am of German/Dutch lineage and love Japanese people, so its hard for me because I'm white and prefer people who are not.
My kids and I are a team. We call ourselves "the enclave", and act like a group of Akatski - close, trusting, honest, caring. I earned this respect from my kids by treating them as equals, not as inferiors, which is not traditional for most families. For my family, it works well. Everyone in my house is an equal, old and young alike. Respect is also equal, and in this way everyone takes care of everyone else. We have our disagreements, but we always talk them out right away and have alot of fun together.
We love Anime, and watch it together as a group. My Hero Academia is our current favorite, but I'm also a big fan of Fate/Stay Night and Naruto too. I enjoy being and acting like a mature adult in public, and enjoy a comfortable family life in the home. I'm very passionate for a guy, emotionally willing to talk about how I feel, to cry if the moment calls for it without feeling weak, and to trust people more easily than I should.
I am still learning how to speak Japanese, but as soon as I have a little more learned I will be comfortable-enough to make my first actual visit to Japan. I have learned alot about Japan but never have been there. I hope to make more friends in Japan that I can visit when we come.
