Ephemeral Dreams was born on April 02, 2011. This name came about due to my fleeting thoughts and fantasies from my hobbies, anime and manga. Ephemeral Dreams also has a sister blog, Ephemeral Curiosity (Ah, forget it. It’s dead now. I’m just leaving the link there so you can see what a horrible job I did on my first blog. Go to my Flickr instead for travel and photos.), that focuses on my other hobbies, travel and photography, and my lifestyle.
What you should know about me:
- I’m deaf. I have severe-to-profound deafness. Contrary to popular belief, deaf people are NOT debilitated. We are capable of doing anything; just not the ones that would involve listening. I have been wearing hearing aids my entire life, and that hasn’t impacted my interest in music (J-pop, classical). I can speak quite well and I am a proficient signer of ASL (American Sign Language). I do not think that my loss of hearing will impact my interest in anime at all, since I am able to hear with my hearing aids (or I could choose to watch subs without my hearing aids.) Either way, I am certainly one unique anime blogger from a whole different kind of world. Here’s my history of how I first got started in anime and manga, and for those of you wanting to know more about me, here’s my 50 Questions post about me.
- I can pretty much watch any kind of anime genre from romance to horror to sci-fi. I can also read any kind of manga, but my particular favorite genre has been yuri.
- I am a big fan of Miyazaki Hayao’s, Shinkai Makoto’s, Key, and TYPE-MOON works. Enough said.

Now, about my blogging style. As suggested by my persona, Ephemeral Dreamer, my style tends to fluctuate quite a bit, with some themes merely fleeting or ever-lasting. Of course, that is the nature of dreams, and I do think that my name will fit my style. So, don’t be quite surprised if I suddenly seem to go off track with some posts!
Oh, before I forget. Any questions pertaining to my interests or issues not mentioned here in my blog can be asked at my Formspring account: Ephemeral Dreamer. Ask away!
