laughter is the best medicine

I'm an aspiring polyglot with some Spanish and Japanese under my belt. My eyes are set for French, German, Italian, and Hawai'ian. I often get distracted from my language learning by my little family unit (husband, human baby, and fur baby) and life in the Bay. My language skills tend to be more literate than verbal. You can find me as 'moon_goddess' on Memrise, or DM me for Lang-8 or Busuu contact information.
