Twitch: a sudden movement or vocalisation, usually involuntary, which can cause alarm and distress.
My name is Twitch and I have Tourette’s Syndrome and obviously a golden sense of humour ;) I have a few hundred other things, but alas, I am afraid they are all labels, and I would never use them as an excuse.
I love languages. Like, MASSIVELY! I am doing a degree in them. My ultimate goal is to be a hyperpolyglot fluent in at least 12 languages: English, Italian, Spanish, German, Dutch, French, Russian, Japanish, Mandarin, Rapa Nui, Portuguese and Quechua. Give me 5 years and hopefully I’ll be there…
Ultimately I want to be a human rights lawyer, inspired by a special friend on here. That said, I know very little about law.
I am also fanatical about the piano - my goal there is to perfet Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue…Summer project!
Another hobby is Medicine (I wouldn’t ask…). I don’t want to be a doctor, but I just like learning about it :)
Sometimes I can irritate even the coolest cucumber and sometimes I can drown boat loads of optimists, but hopefully you will find me in a normal mood.
I love to talk but more importantly, I love to listen, so if you have anything you want to talk, SHOUT AT ME!
*Abolish Tourette’s and Austism stereotypes*
