I'm a senior at Minnesota State University, but I'm from Massachusetts and have also lived in Utah and China. I like to move. My B.A will be in East Asian Studies with a concentration in Chinese, but I have absolutely no idea what I want to do with my life. I do know that I want to go to graduate school, but I don't know what for.
My passion and interests mainly lies split between foreign language/cultures and theater. I love acting, directing, scenic construction, dancing.... anything. I work for a summer stock theater company every year. But then I also do translation work for fun. I'm an odd duck. I speak very passable Spanish (I understand almost everything), mediocre Mandarin Chinese, and I read French very well and am working on being to understand it when spoken. Actually production of French can wait. I also took a semester of Arabic and it was so difficult I kind of wanted to die. I do want to give it another go, though!
I also love video games (mainly JRPGs) and television. TV shows I am watching now are more or less just Heroes and The Office, but I have a yearly love-hate relationship with American Idol and I keep meaning to catch up with Ugly Betty. Past shows I will sometimes still blabber about include: Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Veronica Mars, Gilmore Girls, and Joan of Arcadia. And when I'm feeling really nerdy, a terrible/fantastic campy show from New Zealand called The Tribe.
I don't update terribly frequently (a couple times a week, usually) but I'd like to both post and comment more in the new year. I hope to be LJ friends with some of you soon!
