Albania // United States
Student and artist
Anything to do with my lovely countries, Albania and the United States and anything involving my beautiful part of Europe, the Balkans. Also, politics, futbol/football (soccer), Eurovision, Eurobeat, 20th century US history, Ronald Reagan movies/filmography, vintage things such as pop art comics. (20th century exclusive; I'm not a big fan of Victorian or colonial things. It's interesting to study the history of those times, but the aesthetic of early 1900s to 2000 is more interesting to me. The time we live in is a very fascinating time, but I'm not really hyped about it. Maybe the next generation will be, haha.), and anything else included in "About Me."
☺G E N E R A L
•Proud to be Albanian-American; currently residing in the United States. Might reside in Germany in the future, but there are high chances that I might stay in the United States and not move at all. I'm a natural born citizen of America, but I am also registered in Albania. I'm considering signing up for German citizenship, as I feel a sense of home towards Germany and German culture. (though I know I have no German blood) Plus, I'm learning German; I am currently part of the German Honors Society in my state. I love and support both of my countries and will do so till the day I die, because if you can't be proud of who you are, the world will not know who you were.
•High school student; I've always been told to value my education, as knowledge is the ultimate weapon in life.
•Digital and traditional artist; I used to work on commissions, but I currently don't.
•Poet/author. (I might publish my poems here; I work on stories by myself, but they're not published anywhere in real life or online–just my notebooks/journals)
•Musician/instrumentalist/marching and concert band member. (pianist, flautist/flutist, tenor saxophonist, and sometimes vocalist; I want to be a voice provider for a Vocaloid character one day and produce my own music in the process. I eventually want to learn the guitar and violin. Also, possibly piccolo, since I hear it's really similar to flute.) At the moment, I'm in love with my tenor and can't wait to officially be considered a player of it.
•I have worked for Google Translate before. Currently, I do not. I haven't worked there in quite a while and honestly, I haven't thought of making a comeback.
•Likes: anime, manga, memes, history, politics, culture, languages, the arts (music, photography, etc.), literature, marching and jazz band, football/soccer, volleyball, the Olympics, Eurovision, traveling, historical fiction films or just any type of film in general, etc. (mostly ones staring Ronald Reagan; he had a sweetheart look and vibe to him) I truly love 20th century American politics and there is a special place in my heart for Jack, Bobby, Teddy, Joe (the big brother to the Kennedy brothers), and the Kennedys in general. I hope one day to be a successful politician and have a family that's quite similar to their's. That's my American Dream.
•Hetalia, Yugotalia, Yuri on Ice!!, Avatar the Last Airbender/The Legend of Korra, Love Live!, Sailor Moon, Lazytown, Tekken, Killing Stalking, etc. fan (I love Tahno so much; he's an edgelord.)
•Fan to the soccer/football teams of Albania, Germany, Italy, France, and Portugal.
•I love Real Madrid, Chelsea, Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund, Arsenal, etc. (Robert Lewandowski, Cristiano Ronaldo, Antoine Griezmann, Oliver Giroud, Gerard Pique, Erik Dürm, Marco Reus, Granit and Taulant Xhaka are some of my favorite players.)
•Personality type: mix of INFJ-T and ENTJ-A. (If unsure about what this means, Google it. They're two of the Myers-Briggs personality types. And yes, you can have more than one personality. It's possible to have a mix.)

•I only accept one way of saying "Thanks"; just pressing the button that says "Thanks!" will do.
•I don't accept ratings as a way of thank you if you don't understand the language that the song is sung in or have no experience in the languages.
•Notify me if I have made an error; I will fix it automatically, but do not give it a low rating just for an error.
•Please read my copyright notice/translations' signature.
•Please give me credit if you are going to use the lyrics translated in any way.
•Credit must be given to me if you were to publish the lyrics anywhere else. (I'd rather have you notify me first. That would be greatly appreciated.)
•My translations can be used to make other translations, but please give credit.
•If I am not given credit for my work, I WILL take action, since I hold copyright to the translated work.
Thank you for reading and happy translating!
If you ever want to talk or need something translated (Albanian to English, English to Albanian), be it a request or just something in general, I'll be glad to help. Just check if I'm online and contact me through message or chat. I don't mind, whatever form it may be. Please take into account that when you make a request, it will take me a while to finish, as I have school, too. School is a very serious matter to me and I am very dedicated in getting somewhere with my education–it matters a lot to me, as this is my way to my future career. I hope you all understand this, but I will still be able to help you, but just realize that if I take a while to get your request finished, it's because I'm busy with school or I am preoccupied with something that has arose in my schedule. Right now, I'm almost done with school, but I'll be busy during the summer with travel and band camp, so please be patient. I appreciate getting requests and chatting with people, but as mentioned before, it may take a while.
