If death doesn't get you then life surely will

Mood: tired
Music: Die Toten Hosen - Schrei Nach Liebe

Well, I finally made my great escape from Missouri. Chicago is just as boring as Kirksville, although I'm eating quite a bit more. Oh well.

I'm a materialistic person. So. Some particularly exciting things I received for Christmas:
- The World's Writing Systems by Peter T. Daniels
- two Russian newspapers and two Russian alphabet books for kids (e.g. "A is for Aardvark...")
- iPod shuffle (yes, I am slightly behind the times)
- new CDs by Beirut and Carrie Akre

My mother received Spoken Here by Mark Abley and season three of Project Runway. I will be borrowing those starting tomorrow.


Goals for this break: finish novel, finish short story, finish application(s), stop stressing out about school!, relax.

Goals for my life: become fluent in Russian, French, and maybe Georgian (or Portuguese?), explore, live.

Спасибо, и поздравляю вас с Новым Годом!

Да, я говорю по-русски; я изучаю русский язык в университете в США. :)

Вы написали:
"Goals for my life: become fluent in Russian..."
а я могу сказать (о себе):
"Goals for my life: become fluent in English,"
русский - это мой родной язык.
Если нужно, то я готов консультировать Вас
по русскому языку.
А у меня иногда бывают вопросы
по английской грамматике...
Думаю, что мы могли бы помогать друг другу.
Пожалуйста, подумайте о моем предложении.

there is good reason to believe that to use email will be convenient for us .
serkor@mail.ru - it's me, try to send any message...
My name is Serge (or Sergii, or Sergey, but it sounds very funny)

правильно "помогать друг другУ"

Привет, Сергей! Меня зовут Адам. Если у вас вопросов, посылай мне электронную почту (an e-mail) в atomiller AT gmail DOT com. (at = @ а dot = .)

I will try to respond back in a more timely fashion (more quickly). Это очень трудная неделя. :(
