I think this is my favorite quote from Patrick in that one episode of SpongeBob. XD
I noticed that I never did an “about me” page and I am COMPLETELY lost on how to manage and edit things on WordPress right now. Menus, links, sidebars, and everything else is new to me because I have never owned a blog like this. I’m used to coding things from scratch… Which should be more difficult, but 90% of the stuff I do doesn’t make sense so yeah. >.>
WARNING: I wrote a
lot ton of crap because I don’t know how to shut up.
My name is Keisha and I have too many nicknames. The most used one is Reika, but feel free to call me something else. I’m born March 25, 1993 so that makes me an Aries born in the year of the rooster. I’m a musician (bass, piano, alto sax.), dancer, maid in Tenshi no Ai Café, k-pop lover, j-rock lover, and ultimately a riot. A nice one though. :D My heritage is Trinidadian, Panamanian, and I may be Muslim. (I don’t know about my biological father’s side, but the last name is Salaam.) I love talking to people and making them laugh so feel free to send a message or add me on anything listed at the end of this post.
Warning: I can be a sarcastic little thing. XD
Another Warning: If you go to my tumblr, be careful. I like Asian men. That’s all I can say and all I need to say. >.>
I may be majoring in psychology or translation or language but I’m 90% sure I’ll have music as one major. I love music so much, but lately I haven’t been playing as much as I should have so my love for it feels like it’s diminished. ;A; Regular playing and not caring how bad or inexperienced I may sound are definitely the cures. I’ve been playing electric bass since Sept. 2008, alto saxophone and upright bass since November 2010, and piano since Dec. 2010. I had some upright lessons (rarely supervised) -.- and was taught bass for a year in high school but had to self-teach after that. I get some coaching here and there from friends as well. Alto sax. and piano are self-taught and I currently don’t own an upright bass so I can’t do anything. At all. My inner bassist is crying right now. CRYING.
LANGUAGE & CULTURE
My native languages are: Proper English and Bad English (hoodlum dialect). I kid you not. I prefer to speak proper English, but I only know bad English because I grew up around people who spoke broken English whether it was from their homeland’s accent (Trinidad) or they were trying to be “hood”.
I aim to learn uhh… A lot of languages. I tend to catch on to them quickly in terms of pronunciation and grammar. Remembering vocabulary is my greatest enemy. Here’s all the languages I want to be able to speak:
- English (CHECK. WOO!)
- European Spanish
- Mandarin Chinese (I fear Cantonese and it’s 8-9 tones.)
- Middle Eastern Arabic
I put a ~ next to Greek and Latin because I only want to learn here and there about the language because it’ll expand my English vocabulary. It’s a lot on the list, but I really really love learning. I HATE being forced to learn to someone else’s standards though. *cough*rudeprofessors*cough*
I’m pretty I’ll learn the languages in the order I just listed. The Slavic and Germanic languages may change their order and French may jump off the list or higher up. I’m not sure.
I aim to do a semester in Japan and a semester in South Korea. It’s been my dream for a long time to do abroad study in college and I am determined to fulfill it.
(Secret: If I could, I want to be a professional dancer and choreographer. I love dance, but haven’t been able to improve my technique because I can’t afford to continue classes at the moment.)
