Travel

img (changed to: travel to 2 countries) 10 XP
OK, the language - not so much. I'm really, really bad at those. But I did travel to China and to Brazil. Being financially responsible, I'm not going to another country in 2016. Giving myself 10 points for this, rather than deleting the whole thing.

Traveling to China as part of a class this spring, so first one on the list is China and Mandarin. This quest is my New Year's Resolution for 2016.

My Story

Every since I was a 9 year old child, I've done two things: desperately idolized kickass female characters (Charlie's Angels; Buffy; Yu Shu Lien & Jen Yu from Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon; Black Widow...you get the idea), and trained some form of martial arts. These two are related.

While I'm currently a grad student rather than an international woman of mystery, my level 40 version of myself is a hyper-fit, hyper-stylish polyglot fighter who can pilot any craft in a high speed chase and handle any situation.
