Man I wrote down everything that came out of his mouth. My stupid self opened the wrapping on the book but never once opened it. I could have gotten my 80 bucks back!
Yeah, that happened to me too my first quarter. Paid 120 bucks for a geography textbook that I only opened twice. I've since learned to ask around for used books, and wait a few weeks before buying my books to see if they are really needed or not. It's saved me a lot of $

Oh I bought used all the time, this was the one book I had to buy at the book store...I thought I had no time to wait for it from Amazon.

If you're an outdoorsy kinda guy, you'll love it. If you don't like driving 20+ min to get somewhere, you'll probably hate it. I'm probably biased because I grew up there but I like it the best out of the places I've lived so far (Charlotte NC, Utah, Florida, Mass, various parts of Japan) by a long shot. Sucks during the winter tho.

Dang man I'm glad I got out of there for the winter - nothing like spending an hour every couple of days digging your car out of the driveway to get to work. Going to college in ME?

Schools good, just finished a minor in Japanese, now I'm debating whether I want to go on and switch my Major to Japanese, or keep it as polysci (JP major will take almost 2 semesters less for me). Looks like I'm still gonna be out in UT for a while. Hows things going yourself?

A lot of money to be made for those who are bi-lingual, especially Japanese, good for you. Where do you go to school?

As long as I can ride my motorcycle in the summer and ski in the winter I think I'll be happy. I've grown up in the NE, the particulars of NH are what interest me.

PS; **** me, you get around a lot.

Majoring in Japanese? Intense man lol. Things are going good I suppose...I need to really go change my major soon. Screw the Pre-Pharmacy track. I hate science and chemistry.

Yep, can't miss having to wash your vehicle every other weekend either? I'm not sure where I want to go to college yet. Somewhere in New England. I'm actually a junior in high school but few people know that because I have better grammar then the average poster here, which isn't very tough.

Are you trying to say my Idaho education has done nothing for my grammar?
