Hello!

Postby Lovemelody » Tue Oct 13, 2015 7:50 pm

Hey there! I'm Silo. Nice to meet you! ^_^

I'm a graduate student currently trying to obtain my masters in Deaf Education. In addition to learning ASL and Deaf culture, I absolutely love Japanese culture, and one of my dreams is to learn how to speak Japanese fluently.

I grew up with anime/manga and video games. These days I don't actively watch anime or play games like I did during my undergrad, but I still like to take a look at them sometimes and appreciate how they are drawn and implement some of the elements into my drawings and stuff (I'm not the best, but I do try). I generally like anime that's kind of girly, non-violent, and doesn't have a lot of fanservice.

My other hobbies include playing piano and harp, baking, and painting.

It's really a pleasure to meet you! It's hard to find a group that is Christian and likes anime. ^_^

Welcome, Silo! Glad you are here!

I am a hard of hearing adult and am still in the process of learning/gaining proficiency in ASL. My best friend is a certified ASL interpreter. :)

I miss going to Deaf meetups, though. Transportation is an issue, so I am very, very out of practice.

I look forward to talking with you! :)

For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal." 2 Corinthians 4:16-18

Hallo! Did you draw your avatar, and is that supposed to be you? Very cute! And those are really awesome goals, I wish I had the time to take some sign language courses myself. I'll be going to Japan after I get my Bachelor of Science in Networking for Japanese language learning which is pretty exciting.

I also largely agree with your taste in anime. I'm thankfully more manly than girly, but I like a good romance or romcom and am not big on legit violence or sexual content.

Stick around! Post more! Breathe life into our dead forum! >_> ^_^/

初めまして!
Nice to meet you, Mullet Death!

Yes, that's a little drawing of me I did in Spring. Thank you! :) I had no idea that there was such a major as Networking for Japanese language learning. It sounds like a fun major! ^_^

I will definitely post more! Hehe. This seems like an interesting place and everyone seems so nice.
Thanks for the welcome!

Wow! Nice to meet you Sheenar! :D
It's so nice to meet someone here that is wanting to learn sign and knows about the Deaf meetups and stuff, hehe. :) I'm a bit out of practice too, so I wish the best of luck to the both of us. ^_^

I hope I can talk to you more! Really, it's a pleasure to meet you. <3

Whoops, I have failed at English, never mind Japanese! :D What I meant was "I'll be going to Japan (after I get my major in Networking) for Japanese language learning." I'm currently a Networking Technology student-- boring computer stuff-- but I'm passionate about Japanese. It's one of my dreams to study it abroad.

Hehe, I understand. That's kind of what is happening for me at CM. ^_^
I'm still happy to see you! It's nice seeing a person I recognize!

Hehe, thanks Kraavdran! It's nice to meet you! ^_^

During undergrad, I think Shugo Chara! was the only one I watched all the way through, besides Kamichama Karin. Also, though it's not very girly, I liked Mushi-shi a lot.
Recently, I finished Your Lie in April. It was the first anime I watched in a long time. ^_^

Oh, I see now! ouo
That's really awesome! I wish you the best with that. I hope to go to Japan sometime too for language learning. I really want to go!

I haven't heard of Shugo Chara or Kamichama Karin... although I guess that I'm not the target demographic. haha.

Your Lie in April! I actually haven't watched it yet. But my sister did and said that it was really good. I saw a little bit and the animation looks good. Right now, we are watching through Non Non Biyori.

Since the opportunity has arisen I will cut in again to plug Non Non Biyori. Watch it, both seasons. You won't regret it.
