안녕하세요 여러분!!!

I'm not sure how many people will do this, but I figured I'd give it a try, anyways! I'm sorta taking it from the JapanesePod101 forum (I'm not learning Japanese. I just sometimes find it interesting to see bits of other languages! :P ). But since I haven't been on here for very long, I thought it would be nice to... get to know people a bit more! So I'll go first...

Hi everyone! Nice to know a bit more about you! ^_^ I'm so impressed by those of you who know/are learning multiple languages! I don't think I could do that... I'd get really confused!

Taliana: you came to Australia? Where did you go?

matthew254: ^_^ I haven't played it for ages, though!

SiEd: If you're able to explain, what's your PhD in? My husband got a PhD a few years ago. You're very brave for doing one! LOL. I definitely couldn't! :P

One of my German uncles married a Thai and I have a half-German-half-Thai little girl cousin ^^.
They live near Pattaya...
I need to visit them some day! Hopefully this year.

Erich, how did you end up being an IT specialist w/ a German degree ^^
