Are you a native Chinese speaker?

Born in the US, learned my Chinese through my parents, so I never was taught any cool saying.

What do you love most about Chinese culture?

Don't love it or hate it, I'm just Taiwanese/Chinese. If I have to pick one thing, food. I'm half mountain east people, so I love pasta. My mom said if I wasn't Chinese, I'd be Italian.

Are you using your Chinese for work/school/leisure purposes today?

I use to speak at work. I only speak Chinese with my mom now and I can only take so much of that haha.

How long have you lived/worked/studied in a Chinese speaking country?

Never lived over there. I did spend one summer in Taiwan and started to dream in Chinese, how weird is that.

How long have you studied Chinese in US (or elsewhere)?

Never really officially studied Chinese. Did go to Chinese school as a kid, but I never really learned anything.

Introduction

Just moved here from Las Vegas but originally from Chicago. Left a job where I spoke Chinese rather frequently to one where I never speak at all, so it's getting rusty. I speak rather OK, but I can't read or write a lick.
