heh, great minds think alike

I'm Sean. I currently live in Austin, Texas, although I grew up in the much cooler lower-state Michigan - and then went to college in the even colder Upper Peninsula of Michigan, where I majored in Scientific and Technical Communications. I've taken that into a PR/Community Management/Social media career from there.

I am no linguist by any means, although I've spent a bit of time learning Spanish and German - but long ago and I barely know a word of either of them. I did, however, study Japanese for a while during college, and studied abroad in Japan for a year.

Ultimately, the idea of learning a constructed language is still a bit odd to me, I also think this sounds like an awful lot of fun - and hey, I've always wanted to do something truly, unconditionally nerdy/geeky. What could possibly be more so than learning a language from a great sci-fi film? ;-)

 we can be even more nerdy than the people who learn sindarin/quenya/klingon!

I am in the exact same boat!! Tried to learn french in high school, hated the teacher, brother tried to teach me russian, didn't want to, and recently I've been scratching the surface on german, but its weird.  I too want something unconditionally geeky. Even if I end up only learning a few sentences, I really enjoyed the sound of the language on screen and I'd like knowing even just a little.
