'hey hey' to the old schoolers that still check this!
(probably none, as you all are already sitting in class and reading like whoa every night)
anyway, i'm writing from the motherland- later this week i'll be in tunisia, africa- super stoked about that
if you're still around, at any rate, lemme know how classes are going! (and maybe you could inform people here as to SU's new grading curve, i hear it's much less brutal)
best of luck in class!
(i would also like to take this opportunity to retract any 'graci' i may have used on this board- i have gone through my entire life thinking 'graci' was 'thank you' in italian- turns out, it's not- the embarrasing part is that i took italian for a year in college

Little Rock, AR
Los Alamos, NM
San Antonio, TX
Las Vegas, NV
Austin is the best with Seattle coming in second. You could not pay me to ever go back to even visit Atlanta....barf.
yikes, that's where i'm headed- why so bad?

if you wouldn't want the person you're dating to see it, then you probably shouldn't do it.
that includes pooping.

you know it's funny, it's hard to find a decent seafood restaurant in seattle....where do U go? liberal...seattle? are we in the same town? swim in those waters in the summer? are U serious?
if you decide to settle on seattle, be ready to be pleasantly surprised by the number of homeless people walking the streets, the beautiful surrounding areas that most people who live there often frequent, and to be extremely surprised about how people are geniunely apathetic about a lot of things.
but mostly, i say settle, i mean seattle, is a great place.
as to the seafood, well, i'm just learning to like the stuff, perhaps my pallette isn't as refined as yours- if you like sushi, there are a handfull of really good places in freemont (by the bridge) and ballard (can't keep the names straight because are so many small 'hole in the wall' places); chinook in ballard has good overall seafood; maggie's has amazing crab; the chain places aren't bad either, like ivar's/anthony's/salty's/spuds...
and the swimming thing- yeah, it's kinda cold, but people have been known to go in the water on alki during the summer months

Sounds perfect! How safe is it?
i paint a paint a pretty picture because i really like the city
(someone who hates seattle should post, to even the score)
as to how safe it is...if you stay in the safe areas, then it's safe! there are a couple neighborhoods that have higher poverty/crime rates- but i don't really have much experience with those places- so i don't know- one of my friends that visited from california told me that there were a lot of homeless people in seattle (that's something i would have never thought myself, but maybe i'm just used to it)
EDIT: and (a lot of) seattle drivers are no good! they break when the light is green (anticipating it will turn yellow and then red) and drive below the speed limit in the left lane- but they also don't honk as much as drivers in other cities, like chicago or miami

seattle is a "small" big city; very pretty natural surroundings, very green; you can ski in the winter and swim in the ocean during the summer (water kinda cold though); great seafood; great variety of asian food; the air is fresh; not as expensive as other big cities (although it's not cheap either); there's a pretty significant (and recent) russian immigrant community here too, maybe that would interest you as you're from russia; rains a lot, mostly drizzle, cloudy a lot during non-summer times; largely liberal and progressive politically (a plus or minus pending on your political bent); traffic is kind of no good but then again it's not LA...in general, i'd say the people are fairly laid back and easy going...
any specific questions?
