Yeah, it's got consistent rules and I only have problems with unfamiliar words, rather than word order. Most of the time I can understand the gist of what has been said even if my vocab isn't there.

I'm going to try to shoot for B1 by next year. Hopefully I can get fluent in Russian and Spanish by age 30, and maybe add a mystery third language (probably an Eastern European language) in by then.

Join me. Learn polish. It's like Russian, but with shards of broken glass in your mouth.

Or Hungarian, if you feel like taking up an exercise in futility.
They're collectible! Sorta...

Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

This is exactly what economics is like.

I know internships are good to gain experience, but working full time for free (and probably having to get income somewhere else) seems like a raw ****ing deal

Some internships are paid.  Dunno if Sam's is.

Internships I've seen are more like unpaid labor that are sold as if they were ye olden apprenticeships.

Congrats!
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

I would also like to celebrate my new job, but unfortunately I will hear on Monday whether I got it or not.

Hungarian and Polish would be useful to me considering how often I plan on going to Eastern Europe/maybe working there. The Holy Grail is still Serbo-Croatian, though.
