orn in Korea, but grew up in the US for most of my childhood. Lived in
Detroit for 6 years, Chicago 2 years, and Atlanta
for 5 (and no I do not have a southern accent but yes I do tend to say
y'all every now and then). Was considered a bookworm when in elementary
school (I was actually forbidden to read books for a few months because it
interfered with my schoolwork).
Was in sixth grade when suddenly her parents announced "We're moving back
to Korea!" Which was ironic because I didn't even *remember* living in
Korea, while my brother had been born in the US and consequently wasn't
even Korean. So at the age of 13 I moved to the other side of the world,
to a country supposedly my homeland. For the first few years I suffered
from major culture shock, to put it *very* mildly - I mean, after living
in the US for 13 years they expected me to cut my hair, wear uniforms and
put up with corporal punishment? *rolls eyes*
So anyway, somehow made it through middle school alive. Entered Kwacheon
Foreign Language High School as a Chinese major and suffered through 3
more years of Korean education. Entered an English quiz show called "Quiz
Champion" which was destined to change my life - a few months afterwards I
started to actively participate in W.A.T.CH. (short for We Are The
Champions) a club for former participants in Quiz Champion. Presently I am
president of my class, and WATCH takes up most of my time (my life is
divided into the Internet, school and WATCH).
Currently I'm attending Korea University, in the Dept of Western
Literature (very biased name, includes English,
German, French Spanish and Russian). Hopefully I'll
be majoring in English Literature in my sophomore year.
What else? Hmm.. I am supposedly good at drinking, but don't take my word
for it .. *lol* I love fantasy (duh) and read both Korean and English. My
English, by the way, is not as good as it once was, and lately I usually
use a mix of both to form what we call "Konglish" (a language used by
people such as myself, who are neither Korean nor Amercian but something
in-between). My dream is to publish a book before I
die, perhaps fantasy, perhaps not (and have a house full of cats and herbs
and faeries *lol*)...
