It is generic. My school doesn't have a lot of options though so if I choose something more awesome, like a bachelor's degree in... paragliding... then I'll have to transfer. I don't think I ever would have really thought I'd be going into communication, of all things, on account of my awful lack of communicating skills, but I seem to do okay when I get up there. One of the older, less shy ladies said that I seem totally collected and my smile is engaging. :D And she does a radio thinger!
I know he's not a real southern, just like Carlos Mencia's not really Mexican and his real name is Ned Holness. The problem is that people around here are pretty much like the stereotype, not so much with the accent but definitely with the mentality. I take solace in that I'm not from here and will be moving on soon. I'm actually okay with country folks, just not the racist, sexist, holy roller kind.
Thanks for dropping in Wes. I may have to sharpen my skills to stay afloat around here. Unfortunately I live in an area that considers Larry the Cable Guy a genius so I've not had to work hard to match wits.
Mm.. we definitely have parts of VanCity that smell like that... on our commute home, we can be seen driving as fast as humanly possible past the notorious Main & Hastings -- if you ever want to see a ridiculous amount of homeless people stinking it up in the same place, this would be the area.
It's fun to people-watch there -- from a car going at least 50 kph, that is.
I've been to Seattle a few times, back before we needed passports to cross the border (an item I still have yet to procure -- no more US shopping, not that it matters much any more with the dollar the way it is in recent times).
I lived down in Oregon for awhile, and prior to that I used to take the bus from Vancouver to Oregon -- I had to stop over at a greyhound bus station in Seattle, and was always shocked at how "seedy" the bus-station was compared to Portland or Vancouver. It scared me a little every time I went ;) Always wondered how a city like Seattle could have such a crummy greyhound station :P
lmao I had the guy scheduled for the day I got the keys. Move went well thanks! Found a "meeetup" group here for Atheist and Agnostics.... Missed there first meetup last month. another one coming up...
I'm in, Let me know when and were and if I can help. Moving this weekend to the Newberry hill side of Silverdale but after that I've got a decent place with a big charcoal BBQ if it turns out we could use it. Hows the shoulder? I had carpul tunnel surgery a few years back, worst pain ever.
