I did a BA in linguistics and have just finished an masters in library and information studies. Theoretically I'm now out in the real world of careers and all that jazz, but I'm not sure I'm a fan. I might go back.
I keep myself busy with a mixture of research, reading, and dance of all descriptions (read: anything with a partner though preferably West Coast Swing, Salsa, or Tango). I am also fond of walking, though often too quickly for most tastes, watching absurd foreign film, cooking decadent dishes, and otherwise enjoying all the delightful sensory stimulation that the world has on offer.
Big smiles and absurdity are my specialties but I also do Mandarin, sarcasm, and dry wit.
