“What do you see yourself doing after university?“

“My dream situation (if you’d call it) would be to go to Japan, work for 3 years there—because I’m curious about what’s going on in East Asia, which I absolutely know nothing about. Japan for me would be the gateway to East Asia. So starting next semester, I’m starting intense Japanese courses.”

“What’s your biggest pet peeve?“

“Oh my god, people who use the word ‘BAGAL’. Like instead of using the word ‘bagel’, they say ‘bagal’. I hit someone for doing that once.”

“How would you spell that?“

“I don’t know, like it’s spelt the same but it’s not pronounced the same. People just can’t use proper grammar. I knew a guy that used to say, ‘on accident’ instead of ‘by accident’, and I used to go home in tears. It was so bad, and it was just so painful to my ears … and my life.”
