My name's Gabby. I'm learning Japanese and I've been learning for a few years now but I'm still not proficient (yet). My purpose for learning is simply that it interests me. I mean if I can implement Japanese into my future career that's a plus for me but I don't plan on singing in Japan, acting in Japan, being on TV in Japan, modeling in Japan, or anything else that really requires someone to know Japanese. But if I became like...a Japanese diplomat, that would be sweet ^^ I like almost all kinds of music, but pretty much just J-Pop. Recently I have gotten a lot more into K-Pop and a tiny bit of C-Pop. I like many, many artists. In my top 25 on iTunes:
(These are DEFINITELY not my favorite artists. Some of them.) Japanese: Kana Nishino, Rie Tanaka (Fields of Hope), Koda Kumi, Eiko Shimamiya, Koizumi Kouhei (Chance), sifow, ERIKA, YUI, Chihiro Yonekura (Ten Years After / Shine in the Storm), Kanon (Brand New Breeze), RURUTIA, OLIVIA, the brilliant green, Love Planet Five, Shion Miyawaki
Korean: So Nyuh Shi Dae, Anyband (TPL / Promise You), Cheon Sang Ji Hee The Grace, Eugene Kim, Navi
I love to write songs but lately I haven't written anything praiseworthy. I DON'T like anime. I did. Now I don't. End of story.
