This Journal is Friends Only!

This is a friends only journal, so please comment here if you are interested in getting to know me better. My full name is Pearl of the Dark Age. Glancing over my profile will give you a good idea of what I might be like, but it's obviously not even the tip of the tip of the iceberg. Does that sound arrogant? I bet it does if you're not used to confident people...

Most people call me Pearl for short. Otaku call me Pearl-sama (with a few exceptions). I was born on April 24, 1983. I live in the Pacific Standard Time Zone. I have traveled to other countries and all over my own. I'm a traveler, and I plan on seeing many more places after I graduate college.

I'm a linguistics major. This means I study languages in a scientific manner. I'm very much interested in many cultures and languages, historical and present. I'm currently studying Latin and Japanese. I plan on learning Romansh, Italian, and Spanish. Maybe Arabic, too... We'll see.

I'm a real foodie. I love food, I love cooking, and I love wine. I identify with Remy from Disney's "Ratatouille." I'm also into anime and manga, so you will hear me refer to myself as an otaku. I'm a geek slash nerd, but I don't necessarily look the part. I'm artistic, passionate, and logical. I also garden. More of my interests are listed in the profile, and if you want to find out more, please comment here.

I will only friend you back if you comment.

Ahh you went for the perma-ccount. Nice. I thought about it briefly for one of my RP journals. XD *lame*

Believe me, the thought occured to me, too, to purchase a permanent account for a RP journal. I knew, of course, that this wasn't such a good idea, as I have no intention of RPing for the rest of my life. (At least using that journal...)

Hey, Pearl-san! I just realized that we weren't mutual friends on here soooo...
Dec. 16th, 2008 12:25 am (UTC)
WE ARE NOW!!! ^____^ Thanks for letting me know! I think that might have been because back when I was cleaning up my flist, I was defriending people I hadn't heard from in a while. Sorry about that. ^_^;; *sheepish*
Dec. 16th, 2008 02:50 am (UTC)
It's all good! lol *huggles* There was a period either early this year or late last year when I didn't log on for like four or five months, so it's understandable!
Dec. 16th, 2008 08:20 pm (UTC)
That was probably it. Thanks for understanding! So, how goes Life?

Pretty good. Just finished my first semester of college and passed all of my classes, so I'm pretty happy! lol How are you??
Dec. 17th, 2008 04:56 am (UTC)
The first semester is the best. ^_^ I'm very happy for you! I wish I was back in my first semester instead of... *lost count*

I've been in school off and on for 7 years now. I just changed majors, but with two deaths in my family only a month apart, I was hit with a proverbial wrecking ball, ditched classes left and right, and now my grades are in danger...

Wanna do my homework for me? ^_^;;

I would like to be added to your friends list if that is ok with you. I will add you to mine as well.
Jan. 19th, 2009 09:50 pm (UTC)
Sure! You're very nice, and I'd be happy to count you among my friends. ^_^
Jan. 19th, 2009 11:17 pm (UTC)
Cool. Thank you Pearl. :-)

No problem!

I am Tosk!
Feb. 9th, 2009 08:47 pm (UTC)
If you're Tosk, does that make me the Hunter? LOL

Uh, when I linked you to my journal, I meant for you to log in and view my latest entry...

Hello there, hunny!
Remember me? *coughalistersangelcough*
Oct. 27th, 2009 06:38 pm (UTC)
Hey!!! Long time, no see! I was just thinking about you the other day, as a matter of fact! ^_^

So, you got a new journal?
Oct. 27th, 2009 07:03 pm (UTC)
Its so good to talk to you again, hunny!

Yep :)
Oct. 27th, 2009 07:05 pm (UTC)
Likewise! What are you up to these days?
Oct. 27th, 2009 07:07 pm (UTC)
Aw, your icon is so cute! *squee*

Nothing really. I got back to do A-Levels at school and I'm having fun doing them. Other than that, I'm still the crazy, hyper, music video making, yaoi fanatic you remember from months (years?) ago.

How about you, hunny?
How have you been keeping?
Oct. 27th, 2009 07:15 pm (UTC)
Thank you! Um, I've been spending too much time goofing off and not enough time seriously studying for school. I'm currently out of school, but I should be back on track soon. I've moved out of the Yugioh fandom, but I've still got a foot in it somewhere. LOL I'm currently crazy about Bleach. ^_^;; I also learned how to make torrents. Lately, I've mostly been RPing on LJ, though.

Yeah, I remember Yaoi Fanatic. ^_^
Oct. 27th, 2009 07:20 pm (UTC)
Ah, every once in a while we need to goof off. If we spent too much time studying, or all our time, we'd be walking zombies :(
I'm the same as you. Hopefully we'll get back on track soon :)

I'm moved out of the YGO fandom too. Oh, you like Bleach? I've always wondered about watching it, but I've never actually gotten round to it.


My videos say it all. I've recently moved into the fandom of The Last Remnant, which is the most in your face gay game ever. There is so much moments that cream YAOI LOVING' right in your face. I love it!

You still a yaoi fan?

hi hi =_)
hi! i saw one of your posts on linguaphiles and thought i'd say hi. =) just wanted to know, how did you get to be fluent in ASL? I love ASL and i'm currently trying to build up my skills. I can help with italian and spanish if you're still working on learning them =)
Jul. 27th, 2010 06:03 pm (UTC)
Re: hi hi =_)
Hi! I became fluent, and then I kinda lost some of my mojo from disuse. I'm hard of hearing, but I was raised without sign language. When I saw that it was offered as a foreign language at the high school I went to (way back when I was in high school), I took it as a foreign language both to satisfy my desire to learn ASL and to graduate.

Learning languages is probably going to have to go on hold for me now. My dad was just recently diagnosed with throat cancer, so my priorities lie in helping him out. I appreciate the offer, but I'm not sure that at this time it's feasible. I'll have to take you up on it at a later date. Thanks, though!
