Thoughts

I think Tabun was a lot more welcoming the last time I was here several months ago...what happened to everyone? Here are some things I have to say that may clear up some confusion for some people.

*I am a friend of altro 's. I met him when we were both studying abroad in South Korea. Although we went to separate schools, he saw me wearing a brony shirt one random day, and we became friends.

*I came onto Tabun several months ago at my friend's request, because he had posted about meeting me, an American brony in South Korea. I mostly joined to be funny, and because I wanted to see a different kind of brony community. People on Tabun were very kind to me.

*I'm not here to spam or troll anyone, or to fill up your website with English. In my last post, there were some people emphasizing that this is a Russian website. Don't you think I know that? I'm only here to chat with people and make friends. I'm not hurting anyone or anything by speaking English. If I could speak Russian, I would. There is no reason for people to be annoyed. This is a website on the internet, I'm not stealing from your house!

*There were also some corrections to my grammar on the last post, which I thought was funny. Though it's true I am an English teacher, no one's use of any language is infallible. Also, there is a difference between writing a formal essay and just talking on a message board. I wouldn't mind strange arrangements of sentence structure; I'm not very prescriptive when it comes to language, anyway.

*I remember some of you from last time! Hi!

*If you can't speak English, that's okay. If you want me to be able to read your response though, you should post in Cyrillic script, because then I can use a translator. I can't read phonetic Russian!

*I'm a real American, I promise. What can I do to prove it?

Well This is Embarrassing

Does anyone still remember me? I don't blame you if you don't! I haven't been here in a while because I got so overwhelmed with work and school. I even had to drop a class at the beginning of the year...that was a little damaging for my pride. I'm sorry I never got around to helping with English or anything; I just was so busy with other things. As for the future, I have to say that I can't promise any more to help with the English language, because I have so many other things to do! But I'm still here, spying benevolently on everyone.

Fanfictions

So it looks like I've been named the resident fanfiction viewer on my last post. I think that will be okay, as long as there aren't too many! Show me the first fanfiction to look at! A shorter one would be nice at first so I can see what I'm dealing with. I would be happy to help.

Greetings from an American in South Korea!

Most all of you don't know me, since I am brand new, but for the few of you who were watching the comments on this post you know me as the American girl from Kansas that altro met at a meeting.

As for my information, I am 20 years old and studying to be a schoolteacher of English language literature. I am an exchange student at Ajou University in Suwon, South Korea, and I will be back in America by late June (just in time to go to Argentina in a month to see my sister--I'm a busy girl!). I speak no Russian but Google Translate seems to be doing good things for me, so feel free to post in Russian or English; I love to talk to people!

I have been a brony since late 2010, and I have introduced the show to a few other people, but not many. In my mind, it's better to share with close friends than the liberally share with a lot of people I don't know well, but that is my opinion.

Here is a Russian translation by altro! (There have been some edits from before.)

Большинство из вас меня не знает, я здесь новенькая. Некоторые из вас, которые читали комментарии знают меня как американскую девушку из Канзаса, с которой познакомился altro
Обо мне. Мне 20 лет, я учусь на учителя англоязычной литературы. Я — студентка по обмену в универститете Аджу в Сувоне, Южная Корея и я вернусь в США в конце июня (как раз чтобы съездить в Аргентину на месяц встретиться с сестрой — я занятая девушка!). Я не говорю по-русски, но Google Translate помогает мне, так что можете писать на русском или английском, я люблю общаться.
Я — брони с конца 2010 и познакомила нескольких людей с сериалом, но немногих. Я думаю, что лучше делиться сериалом с близкими друзьями чем болтать о нем с кучей людей, которых я не знаю, но это мое мнение.
