Dear sir,

congratulations on passing your bar exam. Please note that we are constantly looking to expand our business and a dirt cheap fresh-out-of-school law graduate such as yourself would be an excellent addition to our highly professional team.

Sincerely,

I've been learning Polish. It's quite a cool challenge to learn a new language, and especially one that's so fucking hard. It's a really good feeling when I can read something that looked like alien talk previously. The people in Poland are really chill and friendly, and this feeling totally reflects in their language. Some words sound so beautiful and cute. I mean look how cute "thank you" is: dziękuję (if you are wondering how to say it).

And in a way it's very similar to Portuguese. I'm definitely having a much easier time getting the pronunciation right than americans :lol: 

I always admire people who want to learn Polish... Hope you are having a great time! Powodzenia :)

The incredible polish women  😊

But seriously, I can see myself living in Kraków one day. It's such a cool, cozy and affordable city, with lots to explore and very friendly people. There's much more to life than being a salaried employee driving to work every day from 10am to 6pm :) I want to see what's it like to live by my own terms, and discover what I'm capable of doing. This is a long term dream and I've been taking each step to make it a reality. There's still a lot that I want to accomplish as an artist at Blizzard, so it feels good to have something to work towards to, and I'll make sure to keep enjoying the hot tub as much as I possibly can haha

Besides that it's a beautiful sounding language.  It's interesting to see how learning a new language changes your brain.

I feel guilty now. I'm Polish and one of the only ones in my family who can't speak polish :(

Also I agree Minos. Krakov is great and if I'm being honest. The women are indeed crazy attractive.

I'll make it language #4 if I'm ever able to penetrate Japanese. It's a pretty brutal language for a French/English speaker to learn.

Interesting that Polish is so hard to learn for an English first language person. At least according to this website https://www.effectivelanguagelearning.com/language-guide/language-difficulty

So I guess from this list Japanese is one of the most difficult languages a native English speaker could possibly seek to learn?

This would have taken less then an hour if the pictures of Shawn showing any form of facial expression werent 240p quality.

 

Feel free to use that btw, hopefully Vince Gilligan wont sue us.

You guys are making me nervous, I won’t be an attorney until later this year, if all goes to plan. There’s a simple ethics test you have to pass and then you have to get sworn in before a judge (just want to point that out to people haha...)😛

Yeah there was an american dude in class and he was struggling like crazy, it's just so hard for americans to lose their accent. At least for me it's much easier, because Polish sounds a lot like portuguese (Most of the letters sound the same). It's interesting to discover that same words are surprisingly the same in both languages, even though they are so far apart in origin. For example, friend is Colega (portuguese) and Kolega (Polish).

Another thing that's very interesting is to observe how language shapes our very own thoughts, since we think in "words" for most of the time. What kind of thoughts would we have if we had no spoken language? Trippy to think about this. For example, Polish uses the same word for luck and for happiness (szczęście) which really makes you realize that they really are the same concept. This is a huge rabbit hole! (Btw if you find this subject intriguing do yourself a favor and watch Arrival if you haven't already, they explore the role of language in thoughts pretty well there :) )
