You guys are all really welcoming. In all honesty, I rarely write poetry and I'm much more comfortable with prose. Usually when I write, I like doing science fiction or historical fiction. Writing is my escape from reality I guess.
I like drawing,too, but I'm not so good at it. I really love writing and music is a must for me. I program as a hobby and I'm also studying Japanese, Latin, and Spanish. Learning new things is probably my favorite thing in the world.
Ah, learning languages is so much fun. Japanese is on my list for the future; other than English, I currently speak passable French and Korean (my French is the better of the two, but my Korean is catching up!) and pretty basic Spanish.
I wouldn't say it's difficult so much as its intimidating. It looks scary because of the complicated characters, but alot of them are just groups of others. The grammar is really easy too because everything is marked with a particle.
Anime/manga: Fairy Tail, Code Breaker, Ao no Exorcist, Pandora Hearts, Hetalia (NOT a crazed fan girl!), and I've attempted to read nary to, bleach, gintama, and one piece but I've only gotten so far. But so far I have enjoyed them.
As for video games I like fallout, skyrim, FFX, FFX2, FFIV, Assasin's Creed, KH, and Rune Factory.
