Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Greetings all, I am a linguistics major living abroad in Taiwan
trying to pick up a bit of Chinese. I love being in foreign and
difficult situations, so coming to Taiwan with no previous
knowledge of it seemed quite appealing to me. If this sounds
exciting to you as well (maybe somewhere other than Taiwan,
though), I think we could be good friends!
我已經住在台灣一年半了, 真的好玩! 人多很熱心, 食物都好吃. 現在我想多認識好朋友!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I was student at Shida for a while when I first got to Taiwan, I'm
currently taking a break from studying Chinese (though the learning
never truly stops).
At the moment, I am tutoring and teaching English, though it isn't
something I intend to do long term. But, it is fun getting to know
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Listening, I suppose. I love to listen to people talk about
themselves, their beliefs, anything. I suppose this is what got me
into language study in the first place.
Skill wise, I got really good at calligraphy while in Japan.
Pictures available upon request, if you're interested.
Update: My teachers think my handwriting sucks, but I still think
my brushwork is nice! :3
I'm also pretty good at the-floor-is-made-of-lava. Just one of
those things, I guess.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Probably that I'm carefree. I like to do pretty much everything and
I will try anything once.
Also I tend to be really bad about shaving habitually. Stupid beard
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Recently I've been really interested in the Song of Ice and Fire
series and TV series (Game of Thrones), as well as Breaking Bad.
All the typical nerdy shows apply here as well, such as Futurama
and Firefly. If anyone has any other suggestions, let me know
1984 is probably the best book I've ever read, and I have to
recommend it to everyone. Other than that, if I'm reading something
it's either a research article or the new A Song of Ice and Fire
book is out. Check 'em out, y'all :)
I love all types of food, and even though I like to cook for myself
I am not a food snob. One night may be well prepared steak, the
next night could be a ham-on-hand sandwich. Though I love Japanese
food, I just can't bring myself to make it. Maybe my rice cooker is
just awful? :(
My music tastes are random as all hell, so I won't bother you with
specifics. I'll listen to anything with a good rhythm, however :p
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Most definitely the internet, my laptop, my friends, school,
family, and a thirst for knowledge. Not necessarily in that order
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Chinese, Japanese, and language in general. Linguistics nerd
Other than that, various mysteries of the universe, such as:
damn black holes be scary
is beef what's really for dinner?
is there another word for synonym?
why is zerg so imba?
who invented sliced bread anyway?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
trying to be a social butterfly somewhere. If not, I'm watching a
movie and drinking the pain away :)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I love musicals. Russell Crowe's songs in Les Miserables were my
favorite parts of the movie. I also sing Disney songs in KTV. Deal
with it :P
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you would like to hang out sometime,
you have a favorite animal,

you want to talk to me using pulmonic ingressive speech,
or you would like to get to know more about me :3
