About Me

This page is to make it easier for you guys to learn more about me better and to relate to this blog. I hope you find my thoughts and opinions interesting.

Hi! My name is Tan and I’m going to turn twelve years old on December 13, 2013 which is this year. I’m originally from Japan, but I was born in Los Angeles, California and both of my parents are Japanese. I have traveled to many countries including in Africa and I have not lived in Japan for that long in my entire life. Before coming here to Japan, I have lived in a country called Zambia (in Africa) for two and a half years and went to an International school there. In Zambia, I have made so much new experiences and I have met so many different types of animals. When I was in Zambia, I also visited a huge waterfall called “Victoria Falls”. David Livingstone, a Scottish missionary first discovered it in 1855 and named it after Queen Victoria who was currently the queen of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland at the time. The summer of 2013, I have come to Japan with my family, also with our pet dog, Gon who’s a Jack Russell Terrior. It took us 18 hours and it was a really tiring and boaring flight. When I got to Japan, I started going to YIS. So far I have made lots new friends and I’m having the best days ever.

My favorite things to do are tennis and soccer. In soccer, I’m a Real Madrid fan and my favorite soccer player is Cristiano Ronaldo. I have played tennis since I was 8 or 9 years old and I have gotten better at playing it not like the time I first started when I couldn’t hit the balls that much. Food I like to eat are hamburgers, pizzas and ice cream, especially mint choc chip. I also like listening to music and the artists I like are Bruno Mars, Maroon 5, LMFAO and etc. Animated characters I like are minions and smurfs. I like them a lot because they are very fun to look at and they are very cute. I know it’s weird and awkward but it’s true.

Here’s a link to a short video to introduce minions 🙂 Some of you might like it, some of you might not. I hope you enjoy!!!

For the future, I don’t really have any dreams and things that I want to do. But if I can become a succsessful person and have lots of fun, that will be fine enough with me.
