Oh Shit! This user thinks profanity does not exist. (S)he believes that such words are the same as any other words and should be treated as such.

Hey there! I'm Nafield. I'm only a Spanish Wikipedian who came to English Wikipedia to improve his English... And stayed!

Well, I don't like those enormous texts of 2,000 words about someone's relation with Wikipedia that can be summarized in one paragraph, at most. Neither I like to find someone's PhDs, Bachelors, or MAs, specially since I'm not American and I don't get what's a PhD exactly.

My main passions are writing, eating, and linguistics in general. Also, I like demographics, history (specially WWI, and WWII), alternate history, current news (and social impact of these). But, above them all, I have one passion, the United States, concretely, New York City. I think it's such a beautiful city, I'd love to visit it (not yet, though) and who knows... Maybe moving there someday? After all, knowing more about the U.S. and NYC is the main reason I try to improve my English.

As I am Spanish, I thought my contributions would be more useful to Spain-related topics (specially in the start), so it was the first topic I worked with.

I'm currently assessing all of the unassessed articles related of WikiProject Spain.
