This is me. Andrew Akira.
I was birthed from a melting pot of two distinct, contrasting cultures; the Confucian Japan of the Far East, stressing obedience and discipline; and the bustling world outside our nation's capital. Like my background, my views on life are different.

This site is unlike any other. Letters. Words. Sentences. Paragraphs. All explaining my life. What I do with my time here. Why I do what I do. Why I can never be stopped. Ever. Everyone can and will learn from this site; yes, a bold statement, but I am a firm believer. Visit everything. Read and absorb all. I am not going to shy away from any topic. This is the real Andrew Akira. Take notes.

I've gone to Sidwell since PK and am now a sophmore. Life has treated me well, and I have enjoyed it thus far. I live in a nice house with a supportive family. I don't have any real financial problems or a terrible sickness that is slowly eating away at my body, and my mind is intact. Why should you listen to an educated, half-japanese, 16 year old male's  aesthetics ? Simple. Although I may seem a mere rookie in a game ruled by experienced veterans and elders, my philosophy is one I want to share with the world. Also, if you've read this far already, that means I have successfully sparked your interest, and it is impossible to go back now. Enjoy.
