I'm 23 years old and I live in Louisville, Kentucky. I just recently graduated from the University of Louisville with a Bachelor's of Arts degree in psychology. I will be returning to school to complete my Psy. D. degree in Clinical Child Psychology.
I love to read and currently own more than 1000 books on varying topics in many different languages including English, French, German, Japanese, and Latin.
I love listening to music. My taste in music runs the gamut from classical to Celtic to blues/jazz to metal. I find myself listening to more and more Celtic and classical music, however, as I find that it relaxes me.
I spend a lot of my free time on the internet or reading. As mentioned above, I own many books. In addition to the 1000+ physical books I own, I own a further 300 on my Kindle. They are primarily classics which I love. I also own a vast array of horror novels which are another guilty pleasure of mine.

Standard Set Answer:
I am interested in this particular topic because I started learning Japanese roughly about two years ago while still in university. I quickly fell behind in the class as the professor assumed that we all had a working knowledge of the language despite it being an intro level course. So, I am here to learn, more or less, at my own pace.
I would like to become semi-fluent in the language. I would really enjoy being fluent but I'm not sure whether this course is designed to teach fluency. I also hope to master hiragana, katakana, and kanji as I am very weak in those areas. I am especially weak in the area of hiragana.
I would be interested in helping to organize a study group.
