When I was in law school, I had a long commute, about 30 to 45 minutes. I used to pay my
roommate to drive so I could study in the car. I didn't realize until recently just how
unusual that really was.

instead of "the" :)


...when you decide that your "future study" of Georgian just cannot wait and you *have*
to study it alongside Czech, French and the flirtations with Icelandic.
