Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
North Carolinian, gamer, animal-loving, PhD student here. The quintessential language nerd. Did I miss something? I am also an ISFP if that means anything to you.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
A Southern transplant now living in Madison. I am working on my doctorate in Applied Spanish Linguistics (specialization in L2 phonology acquisition) and a minor in Second Language Acquisition.

In general, I love languages. I received my BA in Hispanic Studies and my MA in English Linguistics. Along the way, I've studied Catalan, French, Italian, ASL and Portuguese. However, only Spanish seems to have stuck with me! I am also a heritage speaker of Thai (thanks to my คุณยาย).

As geeky as this may sound, I am an avid gamer and enjoy anything with a nice story line.
