1. Hi! What's your name?:
Lishie :)

2. Are you D/deaf or hearing?

3. Whereabouts do you live?:
Midlands, England ^^

4. What sign language are you studying?:
British sign language

5. How long have you been signing?:
With the stuff I've taught myself, a little over a year.

6. Do you take classes, or teach yourself?:
Up until now it's been just me and a few signing friends, but I want to take it further, so I've joined up to a local course for my Level 1 BSL. It starts in Autumn. I'm pretty nervous!

7. Do you get to use sign in day-to-day life?:
When I'm with other signing friends, a little as we like to practise, but I've not had to use it yet.

8. What do you like the most about sign language?:
It's beautiful and expressive. ^^

9. What's your favourite sign?:
I do like the BSL sign for book - I'm trying to find an online clip of it but I'm not successful yet!

10. Outside of sign language, what other hobbies do you have? Any fandoms?:
I practise Aikido, I run, I love J-fashion, and I'm at uni for illustration so I draw a lot too. I'm on Tumblr but not a very fandom-y person.

11. Are you looking for other friends on DW/someone to practise sign with?:
It'd be great to get to know folks here, if we have stuff in common I'd love to friend you here. :)

12. If so, is there anything they should know upfront?:
My profile on DW gives a pretty good primer on what to expect from me behind access lock, but I do go through phases with posting on DW. Before now I'll read my subscriber list but not update my own journal for months on end, and other times I post about three times a day. Either way I'm not usually a big commenter. That's about it, though. :)

13. Anything else you'd like to share?:
