Q: How do you pronounce your username? What does it mean?
A: "BugTilaheH" is pronounced BUG·TEA·LA·HE·H /'bʌg'tiləhi'etʃ/ and is five syllables long. "Bug" is my nickname online and in real life. "Tilahe" does not mean anything. I made it up from the word たけし (takeshi), Sonic the Hedgehog's middle name, which means "brave" in Japanese, so you could say it's "derived" from that word, sort of. The H at the end stands for "hedgehog." Put it all together, and you get "Bug(ley) Tilahe H(edgehog)," my Sonic fan character. What? You don't know who Sonic the Hedgehog is!? Blasphemy! Go look him up elsewhere. By the way, I don't really care about Sonic all that much anymore, but that's how my username came about. I'm just too cheap to get it changed to something that would better suit me. =P

ABOUT ME


Drink! It makes you happy! (Not really. Good stress reliever, though.)

Quick info: Bradley (aka Brad, Bug, Toitle, B-Rad, etc). 25 years old. WGM. Half-Czech. 5'8''. Thin. Brown hair. I was born in Houston (TX), raised in Sugar Land (TX), and now live in Denton (TX) in an apartment with my partner (we married/had a commitment ceremony on May 24, 2008!) and our cat. Pictures herein of the young, adult male are of me unless otherwise stated. I have a sister, who says she will always be 29 but is really 34, and two dogs (at parents' house).
Edu-ma-cation: I graduated from W.P. Clements High School on June 1st, 2002. I then attended Wharton County Junior College for two semesters. I was going to major in Computer Science, but I changed it to Art. But now I am done with college and have a BA in Spanish at the University of North Texas. I used to live in Maple Hall (two semesters) and Bruce Hall (two semesters). I have no idea what I'm going to do after college (er, now). I wish I could stay in college for the rest of my life and not have to work, but we all know that's unrealistic. I need a job, yet at the same time I'm deathly afraid of the "real world." I have student and bank loans out the ass; being in debt before graduating from college is so much fun¡ </sarcasm>
Job: I'm a back translator (Spanish to English to make sure the Spanish reflects the original English) / English editor / English proofreader / website localization project manager for a growing language consulting company in the DFW area. I no longer work there. I'm going back to school for a Master's in Computer Science! That will be after I take all these leveling classes...
Car: 2000 Silvermist Pontiac Grand AM SE (Yes, that really is my car and my parents' house).

GEEKY STUFF

Communities I help maintain: aprende_espanol, lostartists, poscom, linguaphiles.
Other junk: bicho, DeviantArt account, DJ, GJ, Joule, Myspace, Facebook.
Languages: "American" English (native speaker of the Southern variety), Spanish (8 years - I'm not completely fluent, but I can hold a conversation just fine - I'm better at reading and writing the language than speaking it and listening to it, naturally).
I can write/type/read/speak a little of the following (but that doesn't mean I'm fluent by any means): Japanese, Czech, Polish, Russian, French, Portuguese, Italian, Esperanto, German, my conlang ßıkeškaın (under development).
Computer/Web Languages: HTML, JavaScript, CSS, C/C++, XHTML, Java, and very little PHP, XML, SHTML, and DHTML.

Once you study one foreign language, the rest get easier because you know what to expect and how much dedication it takes to achieve understanding or fluency. I can understand a lot of the romance languages (e.g., Spanish, French, Italian) because of my studies in Spanish. This same theory can be applied to computer languages as well: once you understand how one works, you can pretty much figure out all the others. It's a matter of learning the syntax. Well, for me, anyway: I'm very much interested in languages, computers, and the arts. And, I would very much like to pursue a career in any or all of them.
