It is time once again, to step out from behind the book and get to know one another better.

We all have a story and a life beyond the book and thanks to Danielle from There’s A Book, we get share. She asks the questions and we get to answer.



This week’s question- If you could take a class for anything (for free) what would it be?

Я всегда хотел изучать русский язык. Translation- I have always wanted to learn Russian.

Maybe it is because I am grew up in the Reagan Era, you know, “Mr. Gorbachev, open this gate. Mr. Gorbachev, Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!”

It might be my love, make that former love of Vodka.

It could definitely be my love-hate relationship with Russian Literature.

It probably has a bit to do with the architecture…

It might just be the cool Cyrillic alphabet.

Whatever the motivation, I have always wanted to learn Russian. The problem is and trust me it never failed, whenever I would transfer to a college that offered classes in Russian….They would stop offering them the semester/quarter that I started.

I swear, there is a vast conspiracy out there. Huge groups of people got together every year and decided to ruin my lifelong dream. It isn’t right. Oh well, someday.
