I'm an American currently living in Italy. I've also been to Ecuador and Panama. I also want to learn Japanese because I've always been intrigued by the language; I like the way it sounds. I'm also interested in Japan and Japanese culture. I like reading, writing fiction, making new friends and doing geek stuff like playing video games or watching anime.
I guess I'm a hobby learner. Makes for slow progress, but that's all right. I like making lots of new friends. Getting different perspectives from people around the world helps me become a better writer.
