    Did you buy anything recently?

    I finally got around to purchasing a CZ-75 SP-01 Tactical handgun. It's an absolute joy to shoot!

    I have heard of English being alingua franca being used throughout Europe, but it still does seem a bit odd going somewhere where I don’t know the native language. Perhaps it’s because I have seen an odd aversion to foreign languages (and even the metric system, which is ridiculously easy to use) over here in the United States, and I don’t want to make it look like I harbor such aversion myself. Additionally, it would be nice to be able to communicate with someone whose grasp of English wasn’t very good. Of course, the difficulty lies in finding time to immerse myself in a foreign language for a few hours each day. It would be more practical for me to learn Spanish over here in the US, but admittedly, I prefer German. However, aside from a small handful of teachers, academics, and dedicated autodidacts, one will be hard pressed to find German speakers in the US. Nowadays, one can find language immersion programs in some American primary schools (these kids can spend their entire K-6 education doing most of their coursework in a foreign language). I wish they had such programs back when I was a kid!

    5. I have a fair deal of paid vacation time built up, so I may as well use it.

    It will be awhile before I can afford to travel overseas. Additionally, I do feel somewhat foolish going to a place where I am not fluent in the language spoken there. The learning of foreign languages isn’t promoted too heavily in the United States (many people will take foreign language courses in high school, but those courses won’t get one anywhere near fluency of a given language), and I don’t have time to immerse myself in language lessons for hours a day to get to that level.

    I don't know when I will get around to traveling again. For the time being, I am going to focus on paying off student loans and personal debt, but that will probably take me at least another five to seven years. If I do any kind of traveling, it will probably we within the United States as opposed to going abroad.

    Did you buy anything recently?

    I recently purchased some clothing, ammunition (9X19mm and .22LR), cat food, and a replacement Blu-Ray drive for my aging PlayStation 3.

    You need to find time to go to Canada yourself someday. I have been getting paid to process .30-06 brass (I love holiday pay). Furthermore, the brass has required minimal trimming.
