Things that are "neat" about me.
I have a Master's Degree which makes me ok smart. I have "mastered" the arts. All of them. Except the dark arts, because of the whole muggle discrimination thing...
I know a lot about linguistics, especially phonetics, specifically articulatory, acoustic phonetics, and the productive mechanisms involved in early infant speech development. What? Huh??? Exactly. Nobody knows, nobody cares, nobody wants to hire me in that field... hence my quarter-life career switcheroo to creative, fun, and cool things. I still partially consider myself a linguist and love to learn, hear, and think about language. I am quite fond of early infant acquisition, brain and language stuff, and accents... mostly.
PS. Asking a linguist "how many languages do you speak?" is kinda like asking a veterinarian "how many pets do you have?"
If you must know. I speak Russian, Spanish and French... mostly.
I was a nationally competitive figure skaterice dance) until 2000 when my partner dropped me and I hurt my back and I was forced to quit skating and go back to being a regular university student which made me kinda bitter and a little bit mean... (I guess that's last bit is something that's not so neat about me.) but every now and again I get a hankering for spandex, sequins, and mini gloves -- an impulse that I just can't ignore.
I also a Model, Actress, and a Singer/Songwriter/Guitarist. I know what you're thinking. "She IS perfect. Is there nothing this girl can't do?" My answer: Not much really. But if you must know, I am a fairly rubbish cook and I can't juggle to save my life. So if I master those two things, I may be close to the "Most Perfect Person Ever". Either that or the "Most Vain Person Ever". Which ever. They are both pretty sweet titles.
