Well that's the problem, I really didn't think about what I'd be doing after. It just seemed so far off still! But now I'm almost done and I don't know what to do!

Congrats on being in grad school! You're doing your MA? What are you studying?

I know right.

Thanks, it sucks though. Absolutely didn't think it would bore me so much haha. But I'm almost done...hopefully...studying economics by the way. I didn't take a break from undergrad which is why I'm so fed up with school.

Try to learn Chinese. One short word has four different meanings depending on a melodic accent!

The best is English, though - one short word has 10 meanings without any accents - ideal for sitcoms

It is really easy to know Russian better than American professional Russian language translators do.
Considering, again, that title they came up with: "War and Peace"

I have fonts too, I see letters ok, but cannot type,
Even if I installed the keyboard driver, I still would have to hunt for letters on the keyboard.

I think Russian is really hard to learn. It's just so incredibly different from English that it's very difficult for native English speakers to learn. And even though it only has 6 cases (compared to Finnish which I believe has about 19-20), this is still very hard for English speakers since English has none.
The sounds and sentence structures are just completely foreign compared to English.

Well, the sentence structure is something that is probably frightening in Engilsh for a Russian speaker
Russian language gives much more freedom, as all synthetic languages do.

I know a couple of synthetic languages, so they seem rather easy to me.
But if I had to learn Arabic or Hebrew, for example,
there are things in these languages that are very unusual to me and seem difficult, such as changes of sounds in roots of words, or even their alphabets..

Probably Bella would say that Filipino language is easy,
but I somehow suspect that it would not be easy for me.
