Well, I've finally landed an account!  I knew it was a good time to start anew, and this might be a good place to start as LiveJournal is getting easy to find oneself lost in.

Though I'm generally heading towards font design for the time being, my overarching goal is to be a translator, and a linguist of course.  Because of this I'll update often in foreign languages.  Of course I'm not claiming to be good at any of them, and constructive criticism is welcome!

Unfortunately however, my spell check is stuck on Italian for the time being. :)

In today's news, classes are ending next week, and it's a bit sad.  It seems like every semester ends right when I begin to understand my professors and classes in a greater sense.  We've already finished the Divine Comedy (it's ridiculous in Italian), and handed in the bulk of our artwork.  Our drawing professor took us around the campus last week when the weather was nice to use some of the tricks we'd learned and it was more fun than I'd had in that class; I wish he would have done that sooner.

After my class today, I didn't go to the Illustrator's Society for the sketch group as planned, it's just too humid and disgusting.  Instead I went shopping with a friend, and bought, against my greater conscience, a manga.  Now, I like manga on occasion, but the reputation it brings is really not something I enjoy.  I don't watch anime, I don't prefer the art over more traditional styles, and I'm not obsessed with Japan.  However, it's a great way to encounter colloquial and unorthodox Japanese, which I need really badly.

Though what I bought today (Junji Itou's Black Paradox) is a bit different.  Horror manga seems to have a bit more artistic merit, and some of Itou's work is hardly even drawn in an 'anime' style.  The tradeoff however, is that there are no furigana.

Anyway, I'm off for now!  I can't wait to see how this site turns out.
