About Me

Pulacu (In Pursuit of Language and Culture) is my personal blog that chronicles the pleasure and pains of learning different languages and cultures. My current obsessions are the Japanese and Korean cultures and languages. However, I’ve also decided to try and pick up an old friend, Spanish.

A bit about me:

I am a college student in Georgia. I have no idea what I want to do with my life after college, but people keep telling me it’s okay, I will find my “niche” one day. Unfortunately, I am very impatient in that respect. I’m the jack-of-all-trades type and my favorite color is brown. I used to hate the color brown, but now I think it is very pretty.

Language experience:

Spanish – 4 1/2 years of formal studying; best at reading and speaking; worst at grammar

French – 1 year of formal studying; on-and-off-again informal study with a small library of French language books to prove it

Japanese – 2 years of on-and-off-again studying (though I haven’t gotten too far in those two years)

Korean – A very basic understanding of the way Hangeul is written and the ability to distinguish it from other languages

Languages I want to be fluent in: Spanish, French, Korean, Japanese, Mandarin, Italian

Countries I would like to visit: France, South Korea, Japan, Canada, and re-visit Italy

Hobbies outside of language learning:

Reading- fiction and non-fiction; currently reading: The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand

Music- current favorites include Alizée, Tokyo Jihen, and Abingdon Boys School

Films- my favorites are Duelist (형사),  8 Women (8 femmes), The Mummy and its sequel, The Mummy Returns, and any Will Smith film

Writing- non-paid writer of Unscripted ezine, creative writing, blog writing

Cooking (French, Italian, Korean, and Japanese), web design, Japanese, Korean, and French films, collecting Moleskine notebooks

Current obsessions: bento lunches
