    Well, that's okay!

    I've thought about doing a road trip too, and going to the Grand Canyon and California. I always wanted to go to the red wood forest. It would be great if I could go camping there! But it probably isn't allowed knowing California lol. And I know it doesn't exist, but if there was a hotel carved into the remains of a giant redwood tree, that would be sooooooooooo cool.

    Have you learned any other languages BTW? You said you live in Scotland, is that right? Can you speak Gaelic? I technically have roots from Scotland, and my dad found the village we were originally from (I can't remember the name). He wants to buy a kilt and go to there for some village festival. I told him that would be so weird lol.

    I'm currently studying Korean. It's a really fun language, but quite difficult for an English Speaker.
    It is a quiet area this. I'm not on here often either, hence my low post count too.

    The grand canyon would be cool! Only seen it in photos Does California have strict rules on wild camping? Oh, and if not a hotel, then perhaps some sort of overly elaborate tree house hotel :-P

    I'm ashamed to admit I don't know any other languages beyond English. I don't know how to speak Gaelic either - believe it or not, its not taught in schools generally here in Scotland, at least not in the central belt. Mainly its just the north west coats and north Western Isles (Outer Hebrides) that speak it fluently. You'll need to ask your Dad what the name of the village was for me :-)

    I've heard Korean, as well as Japanese and Chinese are quite challenging. Are you at the point where you can have a basic conversation yet or still starting out?

    Oh, that's too bad you didn't learn Gaelic! I've always thought it would be cool to know. Korean, Japanese, and Chinese, and maybe a couple more, are the most challenging for an English Language speaker to learn. The opposite is also true (Korean to English, etc.) The reason has to do with the grammar structure, which is 100% opposite of English.

    100%.

    For example, in English if we want to emphasize something, we will place it near the beginning of the sentence. Example "I worked until 5pm yesterday." vs "Yesterday, I worked until 5pm." <--in the second sentence we are emphasizing that it happened yesterday. So we placed it near the beginning of the sentence.

    In Korean, the most important part is at the end. You could basically not listen to the first part of a sentence, tune in at the end, and probably get the gist of it.

    That's how opposite Korean and English is! Everything is the opposite in Korean (English is Noun Verb Object, Korean is Noun Object Verb). Then there are a hundred and one ways to conjugate the verbs. I could go on and on.

    Anyways, I would say I now can have a very basic conversation, and I get maybe 25% to 50% of what is being said. It's a very slow process, though. My motivation is very ESFJ though...I just want to be able to talk to people lol. Most Koreans know some basic English, but you can't have more than a very shallow conversation. I would like to one day be able to talk about many things with them. So we'll see!

    If you could learn a language, what would you be interested in learning?

    Hello, everyone! I thought I would try to stir up this thread again, and see if anyone wants to chat. ^^ Have you had any worries about the coronavirus stuff? Or are you feeling pretty secure about it?

    I live in South Korea right now. I haven't had any "encounters" but I've been trying to be smart about it as well. It snowed a few days ago for the first time in 2 years...I'm regretting I didn't make a snowman. :(
    What is everyone up to for the spring?

    Getting back in the gym hopefully! I've had something up with my lungs for forever, had to wait half a year to see a specialist. Hope he has some sort of treatment for me, because I inexplicably get out of breath getting the mail and I've never smoked. You?

    I am currently redecorating my house. I thought I hated it because it was messy. I moved everything out of one room and into another... And discovered I still hated it with a passion. Turns out I just hated the layout. So... That's what I'll probably be doing this week until the virus calms down!

    I hope your doctor visit goes well!

    Hi @Sophi . Glad to hear you are staying healthy. This stuff with the Coronavirus is scary stuff (mad worse by social media). Although I live in Scotland, I work for an American company and they have put a travel ban on to South Korea and Japan...oh and China obviously too. Last I read, there has been a total of 9 cases in the UK.

    Jealous you got snow. The bit of Scotland I'm in rarely ever gets snow (although when we do, it causes utter chaos).

    Hi @Phil
    Sorry to read this. I hope the specialist can find and help you solve that issue! Hopefully returning to the gym will help too! Are you going for cardio or free weights, or a mix?


    I've had a pretty meh few weeks. Work has been incredibly busy - it's not so much the quantity of work so much as the multi-tasking nature it has adopted recently of having to jump between several projects at once. Both me and my fellow Electrical ESTJ work colleague are both a bit stressed out.

    Unfortunately also we lost our cat 3 weeks ago. We got him 3 and a half years ago as a rescue cat. He was 14 years old when we got him and had hyperthyroid and kidney issues. But he was a right friendly and sociable wee guy and his condition remained fantastically stable during the time we had him. Then literally out of nowhere he started to go down hill on Friday 31st Jan. I got him to an emergency vet appointment on the Monday 3rd Feb and it turned out it was his heart. The vet, to be fair was fantastic and managed to make him more comfortable. I was able to take him home (and was to come back with him on the following day) and, weirdly, he actually perked up and got his appetite back. Then, just 2 hours later, he took a massive heart attack and passed away in my arms. I know it's so stupid to say this - we knew right from the day we got him that his days would be numbered with his medical conditions - but we still feel so robbed of him.

    Oh @Orian 83uk I'm so sorry to hear about your loss! My cat did something similar before he died...he had cancer, we think. He wasn't doing well for several months (we had him on meds, but they weren't helping much), then one day he seemed back to his old self. Eating, sitting on my lap, seeming energetic. Then the next day his body shut down and we had to take him in to get him put down. I was 13 at the time. I didn't understand that him "perking up" meant he was probably going to pass. My mom told me later that she has seen a lot of cats do that right before they go.

    It's so sweet of you guys to adopt an older cat, though. They need just as much love as a younger cat, and maybe more attention. That added on to your increased work schedule must make it really hard. It's too bad we don't get time off for our lost pets, huh? But I'm glad you could be there for him when he passed.

    @Phil How's the weather in? Have you gotten any snow?

    @orion83uk Wow, I didn't know they issued a travel ban on South Korea too! We were actually doing much better...but then had a new outbreak last week so everyone is a little panicky. I still have to go to work, though. But I've been trying to stay indoors as much as possible, so in true ESFJ fashion I'm redecorating my room! Although at the moment it looks terrifying, and truly apocalyptic (I'm avoiding the dishes. )
