About

Hi, call me Tree.
I'm a linguist. I teach English as a second language.
I lived in South Korea for 2 years. I want to go back.

I am in love with language, spoken and written.
I can speak English, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin, American Sign Language, Russian and Swahili. I can also do a bit of French, Spanish and Italian.

I've taken Russian, Mandarin and Swahili as intensive one-to-one classes with native speaking teachers. This means I speak better than I write. (but I can read and write Cyrillic just fine)

Japanese, Korean and Mandarin are my primary focus, so I've gotten rusty in everything else, sadly.

私が日本へ行きました!本当に楽しい休みでした。また行きたいです!
그리고, 한국이 아주 좋아습니다. 한국의음식이 최고예요.

I might should mention my other loves, books. Lol. I love reading, especially C.S. Lewis and anything fantasy. ^_^'
Anyway, that's about it. Oh, but I'll leave you with favourite quotes:

OMGSUS!1!
Notice how he(koolaid man) lures the CHILDREN to a REMOTE ISLAND and gives them REFRESHMENTS?


Warrior Bard
Fishing for strangers online is like asking random people on the street to bear your children.

That ain't no trip. That's a vocation.

MemoriesofGreen
human intelligence is the prelude to asshattery

Not so much of an issue for me though admittedly as we have been using an artificial since my senior year of high school (although we bought a new one this year that is pre-strung with lights to cut down on the labor of assembling the tree). The old one is still with us and going strong, but I will be donating it to the Lions Club for them to sell at their weekly fundraiser.

Speaking of which, the grocery store by me is already selling trees, which is a threat as the trees run the risk of dying before the 25th of December and thus becoming a fire hazard (as they need daily watering and can only take on so much water without their roots before they stop doing so).

You'll do fine. ^^ Just get a list prepared ahead of the shop, and you'll be good to go.

I find myself stressing out it seems right now over the wait for the acceptance letter to arrive from the university. xD

It wasn't as bad granted as the time when I was a Junior in high school back in Canada, and I hadn't bothered to do my laundry the night before, and so I put my clothes into the washing machine early that morning. However by the time the washing machine was done, I didn't have enough time left (unless I wanted to be late for school) to dry my clothes, and so I took out a pair of pants from the machine and put them on before walking outside to catch the bus. After I was dropped off at the mall about a mile away, I then walked the rest of the way in January with a couple of feet of snow alongside the sidewalk. My legs were completely numb when I arrived, and sadly the school didn't have any heat pads or such to help warm my legs, so I was forced to wait while the ambient air warmed the trousers and dried them, as well as my body in turn warming my legs back up. xD

Lesson that was learned: Do your laundry ahead of time.

This is the story of Waffle King Richard from last night when he went out to get the mail from the community mailbox, and then head over to subway for his dinner, all while it was 32 degrees Fahrenheit outside (According to the car's report), and he was wearing a short sleeve polo shirt and shorts. ^^

It was cold. xd

I'm a little terrified right now. Remind me to tell you about the super freaky anon I just got.

I agree. It's like "here's something interesting but click on that other button over there for a piece of s**t". I will not waste my internet data.
