I work at Airbnb doing iOS, and I love it.

I love cohesive design: showing that you care enough to design something amazing from the bottom up is a requirement to really get my attention.

I love little details: I probably sweat the details in everything I do—a true strength and weakness—more than anyone I've ever met.

I don't settle when it comes to The User Experience: users, at the end of the day, are the only ones who matter, so if I'm not unwavering in my determination to create the ultimate User Experience, then I'm not doing my job.

Other than that, I enjoy studying Japanese and whistling like a pro to my favorite songs.

comment Can ま be used as an interjection to connote an indignant tone?
On second thought, this question is probably not the best. I can't think of or find any examples that would change the basic meaning of ま, except as it would be altered by intonation. However, this pretty much applies to any word or phrase, so it should be closed. Sorry!

comment Why does お[馬鹿]{ばか}さん contain honorific お?
Well, the さん wasn't too concerning to me as much as the お.

I actually have an example. I'm trying to extract the audio clip and post it here.

Interesting. I wasn't aware that honorifics could be used like this.

Ah, I see. I've edited my question to reflect that. Still, my question remains as to why the honorific is there.

Yes, I had observed (in anime, for all that's worth) that individuals would use it in both contexts, which is interesting to me.

comment Why is katakana sometimes used to replace hiragana?
Oooh, I see. Thanks for the bonus. I was going to ask about っ used like that, actually. :) Do you think that katakana can also be used in place of hiragana to "sound cool?"
