I graduated from Ohio University in 2011 with a B.A. in Linguistics with a minor in Japanese. Nearly half of my time enrolled at Ohio was spent studying at Chubu University near Nagoya, Japan. I plan eventually to go to graduate school for foreign language education, to become certified to teach Japanese at the secondary level.

In the mean time, however, I program (primarily in PHP and SQL). I also recently began working as a freelance Japanese-to-English translator, though I've translated anime and manga as a hobby in the past.

comment How to affectionately call someone who is always moaning/whinging?
Honestly, I think it has a lot more to do with how you say it than what exactly you're saying. Any of the answers given below, if said in anger, would have a much stronger negative connotation than if said gently or jokingly.

Answer was based on misunderstanding of elative. Fixed that.

comment Superlatives with “the”
After your comments, I began re-investigating the elative, and have found that my understanding of the elative and superlative was mistaken. I will be altering my answer accordingly in a few minutes.
