Hi! I'm Shay, 24 years old, and live in Oklahoma right now, attending grad school. I actually did have a decent bento habit last spring, but due to summer vacation and scheduling snafus that didn't allow a lunch break last semester, I've fallen out of the habit. So I've signed up for this because I really want to get back in the habit of making bento. Previously, I didn't make that many Japanese style bento with rice. I tended to explore the whole spectrum. I'm also very fond of soups in my thermos container. Anyway, good luck to all of us doing the challenge!
