Hi. I’m Graph. He/him, San Francisco.
I’ve been running this insanely low-effort langblr for 3-ish years, starting in my sophomore year of undergrad. Aside from a brief and catastrophic attempt at learning Hebrew, I’ve really only put effort into Japanese, which I’ve been studying on and off since high school. At my most fluent I was at about N2 level, and though I’ve regressed substantially since then, I can’t seem to give it up for good. I’m a writer by hobby and an editor by trade, and so being able to articulate myself with precisely the right word is extremely important to me; I’ve never had any ‘natural’ talent for Japanese, but I have come tantalizingly close to that level of mastery, and that’s what keeps me hesitantly coming back to my textbooks.
I made this blog partly as a study tool and partly as a way to keep myself sane during an especially grim period in my life. I can’t express my gratitude for the support my langblr peers and followers have shown me, and continue to show me, as I try to get my brain sorted out. I’m glad to have met you all.
