Hi there! My name's Charlotte (hence the super subtle user name). I'm 25 and a grad school student (poli sci majoring in political theory to be precise). I come from the wonderful land of Switzerland (yup, you read that right), squeezed in the middle of the European Union. I'm here to take a look, maybe post a few things, but as you can guess from this brief introduction: english is definitely not my first language (it's french, my first language is french, let's be proud of that). I think it's interesting to write in a language that's actually not mine. To put it simply, it's kind of like dancing with a limited range of motion. I have to focus a lot to make every word count, but I do believe in the fact that I can actually express myself meaningfully despite all of my limitations. Or if I can't right now, I'll probably will someday. So I will try to use my first two weeks around here to familiarize myself with your methods and see if it will make sense for me to try and share some of my stuff here in the future (guess who read the "New Member Quick Start Guide" before posting?!). So bear with me (Literal french translation: Ours avec moi -- this is wonderful). Please. And please, please do not hesitate to correct me if my grammar or else makes your eyes bleed. I don't wanna make anybody sad or angry or grammangry. Bye now!
