Is there a word for attraction to people who speak more than one language? If not, there totally should be. Should I make one? Multilinguaphilia? That’s a lot of syllables, haha.
Whenever I meet a guy who can fluently speak multiple languages, I immediately admire and respect him. And I swear, the more languages a guy can speak, the more attractive I find him.
I can speak English, Korean, and Chinese, but I’m determined to learn more. I want to be able to speak 5+ languages.

Yep, I’m obsessed with foreign languages.

I have been watching Lord of the Rings since 6:30am. I don’t know what year it is. I have forgotten the taste of bread, the sound of trees, the softness of the wind. I’ve even forgotten my own name
In 1967 a 16-year-old Boston kid named Jonathan Richman was obsessed with a New York band called the Velvet Underground. He wrote an article about them for a tiny local rock magazine called Vibrations. And in that article he included this diagram, showing what he projected their career trajectory to be relative to some other fashionable bands of the time. (via this fine book)
