I'm a foreign disposable worker so English is my second language.

By the time I graduated from college I could read and write pretty well thanks to English classes that are incorporated in our education system. But I could not speak it, at all.

The fastest way for me, is to make friends, preferably a girlfriend/boyfriend, who speak the language you want to be fluent in. If you cannot move to the country of the target language, then I would try to find and make friends locally. The more the better BaffLer


Your english is very impressive Iggs, would have never guessed it's your second language. Don't forget to add bishglish to your resume as well

Do you get to travel much as a foreign disposable worker (in non covid times), or is it just okc/japan

STFU :x

Spoiler:
we get to travel to show clients around. trade shows, gov offices, major industrial facilities (ofc if permissions are granted)

I think goodboy has lost a gasket due to Heat being down 1-0 in finals.

Meanwhile the Marlins won today and move on to the NLDS, remaining undefeated all time in playoff series. I think they stole the Heat's mojo. Going to win the World Series again and no on even paying attention.

Legit no idea until I saw Heat beat writers tweets today. MLB had such a crazy regular szn with many games being postponed due to covid I didn't think they would make it through.

But I guess I have watched less too, I haven't tuned in for a single football game this year

Mike has some of the most poignant quotes of any fighter that I know of, but this one takes the cake. When I think of the structural differences in other blood sports, such as UFC, I think of this quote

Really? Maybe it's just me, trying to paint with my phone in extreme Flawda weather, but that's crazy-- I've gone thru at least 4 phones the last 4 yrs

Ish is tiring
