My interests:

Comedy and Art:

I decided back in March/April, 2012 to combine Comedy with Art and start writing/drawing my own comics.

Web Development:

I wanted my own unique place to share these comics, so I started learning PHP to create my own website- Hitting Trees with Sticks.com, which I recently launched. Big thanks to the the Stackoverflow community for all of your guidance and encouragement.

Mandarin Chinese: (Moderator♦ on Chinese SE)

I've also been learning Mandarin Chinese for 6 years and have spent some time over in Taiwan (5 months) and Beijing (2 weeks). I was given the opportunity to provide interpretation for General Electric at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. To give back to StackExchange, I've recently become active in helping out on the Chinese Language and Usage site (http://chinese.stackexchange.com/).

Lol I got downvoted too... not sure why because the question specifically stated "If not, I would also welcome general feedback or comments concerning my question. Thanks!"...

comment 如果你不介意 : appropriate translation from English?
@NS.X. Ah. I thought they were using casually as such when I was in Taiwan. Perhaps I misunderstood the tone of some of the conversations. Thanks for the comment :D

comment 9 Questions from the movie Red Sorghum (红高粱)
can you recommend any other good Chinese movies? I've recently watched the series "黑洞", a story about the mafia (starring 陈道明, one of my favorite Chinese actors), and a Taiwanese series Black & White. I've been learning Chinese for about 6 years, but lately haven't had opportunity to practice with people.

Thank you so much! :D I've watched 大红灯笼高高挂 and 红高粱 so far. I'll be watching 菊豆 and 老井 this week. I'll probably have more questions then! :D
