    Oddly enough I had wanted to spend a year in China, Russia, or South Korea. Different cultures and languages fascinate me. I do know once I'm done with school and start working that my goals will be to see the world.

    Some general prep for an emergency is just good sense, a few of my friends who live up in the high desert near here have been settin up their place for a while, adding a little each year. So I got an emergency bolt hole.

    I'm don't think we're gonna do much here but slide back into peasantry.

    Not with a bang, but a whimper...

    I've read all those books. No need to live it.

    Me neither. I would much rather visit the major cities of the world and the cultural centers within certain nations.

    How are you with languages, by the way?

    I love studying languages. The only ones I know in detail are English and Spanish. However, I taught myself to read the Cyrillic alphabet and to read the Hiragana and Katakana alphabets of Japanese. I don't know much vocabulary in those languages, but I do love learning languages and how to read various writing systems. My next goals are to learn to read Hebrew and Korean.

    Was it very difficult to learn Spanish? Because I think if work will pay for it, I may take them up on it.

    I hated spanish...cheated my way through the second year, I'm ashamed to say. Damned verb conjugations and male/female differentiation. Plus, I can't roll my R's.

    I didn't think Spanish was very hard. Once you learn how to conjugate the verbs it become easier. It's easy to spell in Spanish because in Spanish there are hardly any spelling exceptions and almost every word sound exactly how it's spelled (unlike in English). Spanish draws a lot of words from the same roots as we use in English.

    Re: Americans: Have you ever considered ex-patriation?

    I am extremely displeased with the political culture and suburban life in the states. It's a real turnoff. I'd like to move to Russia and work for an NGo when I grad or possibly work for the government and work overseas. If those don't pan out I can teach English in Japan for a bit while I figure things out.
