Well I think I'm becoming a language nerd.

Following Fanatic's advice, I've been carrying my ipod and Assimil Italian With Ease around and grabbing extra moments of study when I can.
Late last night I left the book on the train. I called the station but to no avail. At 6am, when they open, I called again. No luck. I now feel naked without the feel of that book in my pocket.

What's worse is that my 144gb partition which is reserved for music and podcasts almost is full.

Or when your 1TB external hard drive is nearly full with more language-related crap than can ever possibly be learned by anyone in just one lifetime.


Or when you have a 1.5TB internal, 320GB and 500GB externals, multiple bookshelves (overflowing), of language-related crap....and you still convince yourself that you can learn it all!?!

Forgot about the last part. Not a problem though, because I actually will learn it all even, if it does take the next few hundred years :)

... one of your life goals is to invent a longevity drug, just to be able to finish 'em all?

... or you believe in reincarnation and wish you could retain your knowledge/language
skills and you're books for your next life?

... or to invent the technology to have your brain uploaded to a computer before you die,
so you can live on to learn them all AND have the memory capabilities of a computer while
you do it. *drool*

Please don't drool on my language material... :(
It's not all digitized/uploaded, and I don't want the pages to stick together.
