I ultimately want to be a web designer, but I still want the ability to work in print too (business cards, letter heads, brochures, invitations, posters, etc.)

samantha londer (samanthalonder) | 37 comments I'm going to be a freshman in college and I have 17 credits my first semester so I don't think I'm going to get very much reading time; at least not at first.

Understandable! Good luck on your first year!


message 12: by Casey (new)

Casey (cprohn) It's going okay, I'm getting slammed with tons of classes though, even though I'm really close to having enough to graduate, I wanted to take a little of everything before I left.

Samantha, What's your major?


message 13: by samantha (new)

samantha londer (samanthalonder) | 37 comments As of now I'm looking at a double major in Biology and Psychology with a pre-med focus. We'll see how long that double major lasts!

I really want to go into international aid of some sort, either on a governmental level or just working for non-profit organizations.

isn´t there some kind of scholarship where you come from? Because we have this programme that is called erasmus, and they give you money each month! that´s the only way I was able to afford it ;-)

I spent this past summer studying at Moscow State University! What's your Russian level?

Yes it is. My financial aid covered everything but spending money and my plane ticket, so it covered about $7000. But I got college credits from the university and excursions in Moscow, St. Petersburg and Suzdal.


message 37: by Daphne (new)

Daphne (daphreads) I am not sure about scholarships here (different country than I grew up in, so it's a bit unfamiliar), but I'll definitely look into it. I qualified for a grant and financial aid for this year which covers my tuition and books during regular school, so I suppose there's something out there for studying abroad!! :D

I took the complete 100 level series last year, which was a whole textbook full of information. I plan on sticking with it and going to St. Petersburg sometime in the next few years.

What's your level? How was Moscow?

Moscow...is an interesting place but I found out after a month and a half there that it was not the place for me. Nor was St.Petersburg. Its very easy to communicate with Russians, they are generally very friendly and the sites are beautiful. There's so much history there. We went to Tolstoy's estate and it was just so cool to see his library and that some of his favorite books were the same as mine. The metro is awesome, so efficent and clean. I am at the advanced level, near fluency is what it's classified as, but my vocab is not strong enough. Grammatically, I am fluent. If you ever wanna practice some Russian I'd love to, or if you wanna read some great Russian books, I have read hundreds and can recommend them :)

That sounds really cool. I'm sure Tolstoy's estate was amazing! I may definitely take you up on that offer, I've been looking for ways to increase my knowledge besides just watching shows and listening to music.

you could also check out Lenta.ru and read the movies news section, its pretty easy and you'll learn tons of vocab :) but yes, message me if you want to practice some Russian or whatever.


Zoe Elizabeth (Booksatlunch)  (booksatlunch) | 61 comments Oh awesome! I will check it out, and I'm sure I will be in touch at some point! Thank you for all the suggestions thus far.

message 48: by Taylor (new)

Taylor (taymaxi23) I'm in my second year of school majoring in media communications. Hopefully with this degree I can either work behind the scenes at a show like Oprah or the Today show, or write script for a sitcom or soap. How realistic of a goal this is, though...I'm not so sure.

Thats awesome! Anything can be realistic as long as you have passion for it!

Haha, I suppose! I just have no idea how to go about getting a job like that. I have a feeling it's a rather small niche with a rather large amount of people to fill it.
