I just really wanted to leave this somewhere temporarily. Yeah America may be one of the most hated and misunderstood contries. That's what happens when everyone views you entirely for your government. Yet, for all of those past the border whom keep running their jaw about us, why the hell do all of you keep listening to our music, movies, and enjoying the other parts of our culture.

Hmm, well I'm an English major so I've had the good fortune to read many of the classics for class. I love love love Les Miserables...or Hugo in general. Umm... other's I enjoyed: Last of the Mohicans, Pride and Prejudice, Emma, Candide, Frankenstein... I'm having trouble thinking of a lot of them. And there are so many more that I know I need to read! I'm also a fan of plays and poetry.

Posted by thesundancer8 4 years ago

I just read The Alchemist for a class and it was awesome. I'm a huge fan of Tennyson as well. Also, I finally got to read Paradise Lost, and I think Milton was a genius. I see you have quite a few favorites as well! It's nice to see someone reading classics.

Posted by thesundancer8 4 years ago

Science, huh? I ran away from anything science and math related. I don't envy you at all! What do you intend to do with it? Yeah, sometimes having to read some things for class doesn't work out so well. And I am usually so busy reading for my classes, that I don't have any leisure time for it, which is probably the main drawback. I also wish I had more time for writing as that's what I truly love to do.

Posted by thesundancer8 4 years ago

Language is such a fascinating thing and writing is my one true outlet. But alas, I must make the most of the time I have to do what I must. I can’t complain too much – I’d be an eternal student if I could, I think.

Posted by thesundancer8 4 years ago

Yeah, that’s my goal, actually. I want to teach in Japan for a couple of years through the JET program. I want to see the world, in general, and that’s probably the best and easiest way. Not to mention…I kind of just want to DO something. I am interested in learning as many Asian languages as possible. Well, as many languages as possible. I’m constantly seeking change and knowledge. What better way than to travel the world? So when I graduate, I’m going to do that, I hope.

Posted by thesundancer8 4 years ago

That’s cool that you want to teach too. I never thought I would want to teach, but the more I think about it, the more I like the idea. I want to get at least a Masters, but I think I’ll travel a bit before doing that. Majoring in English was never my first choice, ironically. Linguistics is what I really want to do, so I’ll get my Masters in that.

You play instruments? Which ones? I’m starting violin lessons tomorrow and I’m really excited about it.

Posted by thesundancer8 4 years ago

So why didn't you do it? The language degree, I mean? And I'll see about the Japan thing. I'm not worried about it. I just simply refuse to fail >< I'm going to get ESL certified before I apply to help as well.

Oh, the piano. Nice. I took lessons for a year, and I really wish my parents had made me stick with it. Next to the violin, it's my favorite musical instrument to hear. And together they are amazing. It's always impressive to watch and listen to a good piano player.

Posted by thesundancer8 4 years ago

Yeah, I know what you mean. Money is always an issue. I hate it. But, I am considering a doctorate if I get my masters. I have time though to work with that though, and it isn’t my current priority, of course. And that’s not a bad goal. Comfortable, anyway. I think if I ever settle, my goal will be to live out in Montana with horses and be a writer. As horses are my life and writing my passion. It would be my perfect dream.

Posted by thesundancer8 4 years ago

You have an idea of where you are going, and that’s good. My plans change with the wind…but I suppose it’s to be expected. Nothing is permanent. Math wasn’t a bad choice if it works for you. I would have died. The harp? That’s interesting. Why won’t you attempt to learn?

Posted by thesundancer8 4 years ago

Oh, I see. The piano has an amazing sound. I frequently listen to it when I'm writing. Hmm.. Horses aren't beasts of burden. My horse is everything to me. I've been riding for fifteen years, and I can't imagine life without her.

Posted by thesundancer8 4 years ago

Haha. Yeah. She owns my bank account. And gets everything she wants. And eats better (and more--way more) than I do! But she deserves it. I have a cat too who is a spoiled pain, but too cute to ignore

Posted by thesundancer8 4 years ago

AWW you have a great dane? They are huge! Might as well have a horse! Hehe. I had a dog for about a month but had to get rid of her because she had separation anxiety and tried to eat her way out of my apartment to find me. I am not a dog person, but I loved that dog. Now ... I have a cat. And she's just as nuts. What's your dog's name?

Posted by thesundancer8 4 years ago

It's a shame large dogs don't live as long as their smaller counterparts. Great Danes are really intriguing dogs, though. I have a collie back home who is actually a little over 12 1/2 years old, which is pretty impressive. She was my companion in childhood.

Posted by thesundancer8 4 years ago

Oh you are buying a house? Nice! And I can imagine that that is quite hectic. But, hey, it'll be nice to have your own house. And I don't envy 14 hour shifts either. I like my 5-6 hour ones =P

Posted by thesundancer8 4 years ago

hey sry wasn´t online for a while,... and no not anywhere near the ne side im in hessen that´s about the middle of germany

Posted by faith_connors 4 years ago

hannover is about 2 1/2 hours by train from here,... I once was there with my class but since it was a complete girl class I only saw everything clothing store and shoe palace from the inside but didn´t really see hannover. But if you visit it I´ll warn you don´t take a girl with you they have a ridicoulous number of h&m there seriously it´s like beeing in hell only that they painted it neon coloured hugz

Posted by faith_connors 4 years ago

Sorry it took so long to respond. You are a prison guard? That sounds tedious. Anything new happening?

Posted by thesundancer8 4 years ago

We don't see much snow here. Maybe once a year here, but it doesn't stick for more than a couple hours...if it sticks at all. Then, back home (230 miles south of here), it snows MAYBE once every decade. lol. Yeah, school is going to be a pain this semester. My English classes aren't bad, but my French class has the teacher from hell...

Posted by thesundancer8 4 years ago

Hello. Long time, no talk. Hope everything is well your way!
