About Fighting Windmills
To find out the reason I chose Fighting Windmills as my blog’s name please read this post: What does quixotic mean?
I am a 33 year old, married mother of three. I went to Davidson College. Soon after I graduated, I moved to Japan. I taught English in Japan for three years through the JET Programme, and then was a stay at home mom for 6 years. In November of 2010 I got a job with a software company, answering the phone in English and Spanish.
While in college, I studied abroad in Hamamatsu, Japan in the summer of 1999 and in Lima, Peru in the summer of 2000. I’m especially interested in languages and the connection between Japan and Peru. My husband is Peruvian, with one Japanese grandparent. We met and got married while we were working in Japan. We now live in the United States and are busy fixing up our first house.
This blog is an emotional release in some ways and gives me the chance to meet interesting people and share ideas. Thank you all for your friendship!
