Hello, and welcome! I see you said to someone else that you're in university... what are you studying? I'm also in university (and currently drowning in work >.>), studying East Asian studies as a major, and minors in linguistics and East Asian language (Korean).
Ah, a few of my friends switched from the programs they started on to psychology. At least among my group, it's a popular choice.
When I first started, I wanted to do translation, and that aside, I've always had an interest in languages, so I figured that I would take an intro-level linguistics class as an elective. I liked it, so I set it as my first minor program. Some of it is really technical, which I don't like, but things like sociolinguistics and how bilingual people acquire language is just fascinating.
I don't know much about those, but I know the psychology side of language is pretty neat, especially second languages and puberty. Do they tell you about things like the language instinct or language areas in the brain?
Heh, I'm a university student on my way to grad school, so my hobbies are mostly essay-writing, reading and studying. I usually draw my characters, everyone from an elf girl I imagined when I was twelve to the Druid I'm playing in Pathfinder right now. When I can find time to be, I'm a huge nerd. I have played D&D 3.5, 4.0 and Pathfinder campaigns as well as NWoD's Vampire, Mage, and Changeling. I am also still kind of an anime fan, though I'm not into the mainstream stuff, the only series I'm following right now is Shinsekai Yori. Thanks!
