About the webmistress
Hello! My name's Sarah (she/her) and I'm from Melbourne, Australia.
I started making websites in , when I was 10 years old. Everything I made back then was hosted on GeoCities (RIP). Although the web has changed a lot since then, I hope that this site can capture a bit of the spirit of that time!
I've been listening to j-pop since and I started learning Japanese in . (By the way, if you're also studying Japanese, I've collected some of my favourite resources on my links page.)
I'm using this site to house my song translations. I was fortunate to get into j-pop at a time where there was a lot of information readily available in English on fansites and LiveJournal. A lot of those resources gradually started disappearing, and at the same time my Japanese kept improving until I no longer needed to rely on English translations. Around I became interested in translation as a hobby. Looking for something to practice on, I decided to make my own resource for lyrics for my favourite artists.
Essentially, my goals for this site are to
- practice translating things
- introduce my favourite artists' music to a wider audience
- have the opportunity to translate deep cuts I never thought I'd see translated
- use it as a fun webdev project and place to collect my misc. web things
My favourite Pokemon is ...TEDDIURSA!
