I just like to write. I've had a setting in mind that has sort of existed for over a decade, with much revision along the way (and more to come, probably). I study linguistics and am a few credit-hours away from a degree.
I've never been able to focus on any particular field or career or subject of learning. Instead, I learn about and dabble in practically everything. I have better than average to way better than average laymen's knowledge on dozens and dozens of topics, and I'm an expert in none of them.
I'm mostly a foreign language freak, but I also read a bit of literary fiction, fantasy, and historical fiction. I got into conlanging through foreign language, and I decided to integrate it into a story that I'm writing. I'm still in high school, so I don't exactly have an educational background to speak of.
