I have to stop to do the math these days, since I don't care much.

I'll let you do the math. I'm from '63.

I was about to complain about being surrounded by young folks... but I guess you're older than me. I'm 34. I know what you mean about it being easier to remember the year instead of the age. I've stopped counting and just recalculate when I need to know. :)

Congratulations you young folk!
I wish I had started studying Greek when I was a teenager instead of in my late 30's.

That disproves my theory that you and my former classmate (last name Bingley) are one and the same... well, that and the fact that you live in Jakarta.

Seems like you're the youngest :) . When did you start learning Latin and Greek?

Yeah well he's a freak. Plus he had the opportunity to do it in school.

I wish I had discovered it when 14. I would have become a genius.

They start learning Greek at age 14 at my school now, it was 15. Not sure that'll do the language any good, though. I think more people will take French instead of Greek now, although two years below me just as many choose to do Greek as did French (you must either learn French or Greek).

I now have the courage to admit to being 46, but I was born at an early age. Time hath my golden locks to silver turn'd.

Most of my "golden locks" (or more of a copper colour) are still golden, but, as my hairdresser very tacfully puts it, I now have a few "silver highlights".

I don't care if you have no chemicals, your school sounds relatively great!

Kilmeny! It's so good to see you here again! Are you real? I'd pinch you or shake you if I could just to make sure. :)

I hope all is will with you. Which part of the world are you living in now?

:shock: Wow! I never thought about that! Maybe I'm not real after all!!

Yes, all is much better than it was -- I got flattened by way too much work in the course I was trying to take and had to drop it, and have also changed jobs so am really busy, too.....

But I'm still in Winnipeg until March, when I move to Kingston until June when I move to...... beats me! (Gotta love certainty in life...... Hopefully I'll be able to get back into the Latin and the Textkit somewhere in there.... by which time I'll be 38, to stay on topic.... :D )

O Milito! Laetissimus factus sum te viso atque ob te nobis denique scribentem!
Scribe in hoc foro saepius! Si non ita feceris te reperire conabor ut animalia tua interficiam! "Playero" sum itaque tempus non habeo quo diutius quandam regionem incolo! Igitur te velocissime faciam! (Haec verba, si tu non scis, sunt non vera...est episcopus ille loquens de alia "Re frumentaria"!) Salutemus hunc (aut hanc!!) militem! Atque haec plurimum valeat! Ne me interficite si mea verba latina dicta bona non sint. Scribite mihi tamen epistulam sed 'domum meam'... :oops:

A quick post for my sister, who is still studying Latin (although not as often as I'd like her to!) but is too busy to post...she's just turning seventeen this December.

Now I'm 18! My birthday was on Monday and the last few days have been very hectic, and right now I'm at home with flu! :x
But otherwise my birthday was fun and all, and now I've finally got my driving license :) .
