    Hello, Buon Giorno, Salut, Buenos Dias, Guten Tag, (click click pop)

    Hello all. I've finally taken the jump and registered for the cyburbia forums. I've been secretly watching from the shadows for a while now, and I decided that maybe I should register for those occasional urges to respond to a post or whatnot.

    I am at a ripe old age of 18, heading off to college in september (uchicago)! I'm still unsure about career choices and whether I'm actually going to planning/design/gis/whatnot, but nevertheless stuff that goes on cyburbia is the stuff that really interests me.

    so again, hello all, my brain is ready for the molding.

    Ciao, Comment allez vous?, buenas noches, Guten Abend, and Willkommen.

    I would say more, but I cannot think of more in any foreign languages right now. Is English okay for the future?

    welcome aboard.

    If you are female we might have a match for you. He even speaks a few of the languages in your welcome.

    Too lazy to beat myself up for being to lazy to beat myself up for being too lazy to... well you get the point....

    "Great minds think alike."

    It would still be witty if you said it in some other language. Try to complete one of these foreign sentences:

    En Francais: Je peut something plus, something er other je ne peut pas penser de plus de quelle autres langues. Est-ce que, en 'the future', Anglais est sufficient?

    Auf Duetsch: Ich moechte zum sage etwas something er other, aber ich kann nicht denke von something er other andere Sprache. Im 'the future', ist English gut genug?

    (or try a whole new language that I am not even this familiar with)

    ¿Que tal?, mucho gusto, bienvenidos, saludos, hola y halo!

    LOL! I had 4.5 years of French in high school and my sentences would probably have even more "somethings."

    Welcome.

    You'll love Chicago.

    And don't believe all of that propaganda that UoC puts out about the areas around Hyde Park being so bad that you'll be mugged/killed/raped if you even step foot in them. Bronzeville has seen hard times but it's improving, and you should be fine there as long as you keep your wits about you.

    Turning Canadian? It is infectious.

    I grew up in the north 'burbs, but lost my taste for the big city when I lived in DeKalb for most of a decade. The quality of life in the city (metro region) declined in some ways during the 1980's and 90's, particularly in the suburbs.

    Oh no! I am! I'm going to have to go watch Canadian Bacon now to get it out of my system.

    Haha, I would have known that you were a suburbanite without you saying it. They're the only ones who confuse Chicago with DeKalb county. You weren't one of those suburbanites that were so afraid of the city that they won't use Ogden to get downtown, were you?

    Nah, the whole crime thing is not much of an issue with me. I used to park on Lower Wacker even when I'd be heading out of the city after midnight, and I was on the near west side the day of the Rodney King riots (Chicago was quiet).

    Wow. Lower Wacker, that's pretty risky if you. :P

    The french spoken where I live is not far off from the postings here, with one exception. When you don't know a french word or want to punctuate something in french all you have to do is include a four letter explicitive.

    Sorry Skel, I tried.

    Remember this motto to live by: "Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming 'WOO- HOO what a ride!'"
