I'm surprised that there wasn't a thread like this before.  Oh well.

I'm 19 years old, study Classics and I'm a Dutchman from the Netherlands.

I'm Achronos (Alex), OC.net's attention whore par excellence.

I am 25.

My current job I am afforded the luxury of sitting in a cubicle all day sorting through Excel cells while risking my company thousands of dollars daily.

I just moved to Pittsburgh PA back in May, more so for spiritual reasons.

I like to think I am an artist when I want to be. My mind is always thinking creatively, I love painting, photography, graphic design, music, writing, literature, etc.

I went to school for 2 years, got seriously disillusioned with it and also was in a toxic relationship that almost ended in marriage (maybe a bullet later on).

I have on and off depression about my future, know exactly what I want to do but worried about not financially making ends meet if I was to do some art fulltime. I know I have the talents and skills to be successful and hope one day I will be recognized for them.

I post on online message boards because I can still socialize and talk with people about subjects that interest me, because it's difficult to have those random encounters with people that like the same stuff I do, so message boards are a good outlet for me to get out what's on my mind.

Everyday I want to learn something new or gain some wisdom. I never want to stop being competitive with other people, and I don't accept mediocrity of myself which is why I am a perfectionist. Anything someone can do, I will work hard to do better than them.

LOL. 

I can't read Arabic, but after 9-11, I got annoyed at all the strange looks I'd get just for being brown while downtown, so I'd buy an Arabic newspaper and look at it while drinking coffee at a cafe.  A lot of fun can be had for very little money if you're creative.

Oh well.

I'm a Finn and twentysomething. I study comparative religion but at the moment I'm working for my civilian service in a state office. I'm hoping to get hired there also after my service is finished.

I spend too much time on internet and dream of having a dog, studying arabic and moving abroad.

I am in my early 30s.  I teach social studies in a public high school.  I live in the broader Four Corners region of the Southwestern United States.  I am originally from the Midwest.  I was raised in a rather conservative household.  I was raised a Calvinist in the Dutch Reformed tradition.  I am a committed member of a Protestant congregation.  I study Orthodoxy in my free time.  I own the books even a pious cradle Orthodox would never read and it doesn't do me much good.  I am married with no children.

My name's Fred.  I work in sales for a Title Insurance company.

I love and "do" art and am a huge fan of the humanities.  I'm a big jazz music fan and sports fan (baseball, football (soccer), college football, hockey and basketball). I'm also an avid reader and have a nice collection, relatively speaking.

I speak Spanish (since I'm Hispanic from Central America), some Italian, French and am learning Greek (very slowly).

I went from Roman Catholicism, to Gnosticism, to "nothingism", back to Roman Catholicism, Eastern Catholicism and finally home to the Holy Orthodox Church.  There is nothing, and I truly mean, nothing like Orthodoxy.  Having studied philosophy, Roman Catholic Theology and Gnosticism, I can safely say that there is nothing like Orthodox Christian Theology: It is THE TRUTH!

You young whippersnappers, never you mind how old I am!

I live in the South in Atlanta, GA with my husband, my mother and an Australian Shepherd who has done a great job of training all of us to give her dog snacks on demand.

I work for a church organization, writing and editing. For which I make very little money, but I like it a lot.

My husband runs a food program for the homeless, and is active in prison ministry (he makes even less than I do!)

my hobbies are (...) reading arabic books in public places.

That's what's supposed to be my hobby now. But even worse: I should read them aloud. Because this academic year I finally started the Arabic Studies at Warsaw University. And I have problems with some sounds and, more, with nice linking of the words, as it has to be; I don't have probelms with recognizing the letters, as I've been writting and reading (slowly, with vocalisation) Arabic for a few years.

Anyway: my name is obvious, my father is Serbian and the mother is Polish (Roman Catholic). I came back to the faith of my fathers almost 2 years ago. I'm 22 and live in Poland. Probably my writting style and appearance look serious, but I'm not such person Wink

There are many things I love (handsome men, my friends, chocolate, kebab, wine, rakija, old cartoons, dancing in a way I feel the music, byzantine and Oriental Orthodox chants, sometimes being in the centre of attention, Lost Tv series, travelling, writting, speaking and gesticulating too much, the district I live in Warsaw etc. etc.)
and few things I hate (too much shorten services and lack of their proper order - I mean the scheduling, concerts during Divine Liturgy, ignorance in regard with Orthodoxy and Christians from Arab speaking countries, sayings that Kosovo is not Serbian, parties without dancing, sermons in Russian Polish Orthodox Church - fortunately they're very rare in my parish, and such stuff).

Oh, and I'm a single. And don't want to be a nun.

My name is Jeremy. I am significantly older than some of you and probably significantly younger than others. I am a recent convert to Orthodoxy from Roman Catholicism. I live in the desert southwest of the United States, where I work through the local university designing and grading exams for Linguistics courses that are taught there, since that's what my degree is in (Linguistics, not exam design). I don't have a fancy ethnic or national background like the rest of you, so I'm not sure what else I should write.

Oh, in addition to English, I speak Spanish more-or-less natively (since age 4 or so; my grandmother came to this country from Mexico and eventually married a white guy, so she never taught my dad or his brother, but she taught me...different attitudes for different times, I guess), as well as a little Russian (6-7 years of study in and out of classrooms; I've forgotten a lot since then, though), Arabic (1 year classroom instruction + naturalistic learning via church, though not as much as you might think since 80% of our liturgy is in English here; I can give the responses and follow along with everything, but don't ask me for anything extemporaneous!), plus bits and pieces of a few other languages I guess I can technically say I've studied for work or in the process of getting my degree (Coptic, Lithuanian, Amharic, etc).

I like pugs, sleep, and non-fasting food. Embarrassed Currently I have none of these things. Life can be difficult.

Dude, even generic White American is an exotic ethnicity. Combining it with other ethnicities and/or culture takes it to a whole another level.

I don't really understand what you mean, but it's a subject for another thread anyway. I only wrote that because I didn't know what else to write and somebody in this thread mentioned how they speak Spanish. There aren't very many Spanish-speaking Orthodox (though there are more than there used to be thanks to the newer churches in Mexico, Bolivia, Guatemala, etc.), so I figured I should come out and identify myself as one too.

As much as I hate to disagree with Mabsoota about anything (after all, she's no doubt right about this), I cannot separate the sound of spoken Finnish from my childhood memories of my mother's Finnish best friend yelling at her children in her native language whenever they did something wrong and she wanted to scold them in front of company (us) without us knowing what she was actually saying. I understand the logic at work, but that really doesn't make it any less awkward. Finnish, the language and the tiny but fiery women who yell it, is just plain scary.

Too funny not to edit to include: Going around the nerdy/language side of the internet is the following fake IM "chat" between Finnish and other languages of Europe.

Well for starters nobody talks like that in the real world. That kind of lists are fairly artificially constructed. Also, people will undertand you despite possible mistakes with cases. You might get few smiles due to funny grammar but then again it's not that serious. Smiley

I'm 32 years old. I have taught in secondary schools for the past 9 years (1 year as a science teacher, and 8 as a math teacher).

I'm currently in my tenth year in education, working as a coordinator of a night school program, which includes both teaching and guidance counseling duties. This spring and summer, I will also be teaching dual credit courses: College success 101, and Logic and Reasoning (an intro philosophy course).

I am just about to finish my M.A. in Philosophy, that is, as long as my thesis is accepted in December. After that I will take Latin courses to prepare for the Latin competency exam. Additionally, I will be getting ready to take the GRE.

My long term goal is to earn a PhD in philosophy with an emphasis in the Catholic philosophical tradition, and I would eventually like to become a professor of philosophy at a Catholic university (hopefully not too pie-in-the-sky).

In the mean time, I will be applying to teach intro level philosophy courses at the local University and Community college.

Had too google this but apparently we have 15. It's just that we can combine them together. For example:

pöytä - table
pöydällä - on the table
pöydällänsä - on his/her table
pöydällänsäkään - not on his/her table either

etc.

Hello there,

I'm a 19-year-old Russian-American, born and raised in Johnson's Polar Bear Garden.

Currently, I'm unemployed, doing my college's General Education Requirements, and completely unsure of where my life is headed. If all else fails, I might just end up becoming a commercial fisherman like everyone else around me. I've already got a salmon permit headed my way and, considering that there is only ever some 700 of those particular ones floating around, they aren't exactly cheap.

Well,
Im Henry and I'm a 34 yr old in Virginia and this is my 2nd year as a teacher. I teach Information Systems at my old high school. I was a network engineer who left the industry briefly and tried my hand at insurance. I ditched insurance after I realized it sucked.

I have quite a few hobbies. Cooking, fishing, reading, ancient history, I love cleaning, dating, and collecting ancient coins, Im a musician (jazz and blues bass mostly, but getting into ancient music), martial arts, wrestling (the real kind), soccer, paper and dice role playing games, and Im a huge video gamer.

That's what's supposed to be my hobby now. But even worse: I should read them aloud. Because this academic year I finally started the Arabic Studies at Warsaw University. And I have problems with some sounds and, more, with nice linking of the words, as it has to be; I don't have problems with recognizing the letters, as I've been writing and reading (slowly, with vocalization) Arabic for a few years.

Anyway: my name is obvious, my father is Serbian and the mother is Polish (Roman Catholic). I came back to the faith of my fathers almost 2 years ago. I'm 22 and live in Poland. Probably my writing style and appearance look serious, but I'm not such person Wink

and few things I hate (too much shorten services and lack of their proper order - I mean the scheduling, concerts during Divine Liturgy, ignorance in regard with Orthodoxy and Christians from Arab speaking countries, sayings that Kosovo is not Serbian

Why study arabic? Do you plan on visiting an arabic-speaking country in the future?

Serbian people are really cool! I'm actually very close to a Serbian family as great friends of mine.  They bring me cool things whenever they go back to Serbia like hats and t-shirts.  Grin

I also believe Kosovo is Serbian -no doubt!  This is something I studied about years ago as I am a big fan of history -in particular, ancient history.  Plus, it was one of my majors when I was in college.

Do arabic-speaking people tell you that Kosovo is not Serbian? You confused me when you wrote: "

I love your avatar as I adore the Byzantine two-headed eagle symbol. Since I also love drawing and painting, I drew that shield with pen but with a little variation of adding a sword by the cross and I put it up at my work.  I also wrote on it: "Само слога Србина спасава" -over the shield Wink

I’ve been once in Egypt and once in Tunisia a few years ago (before these revolutions). Arabic and the culture, music and so on of Arabic-speaking areas have been my passion (hobby?) since the childhood. And after a few years of trying to get into these studies (it’s really difficult as there are only 15 places and I had problems with achieving a good result from one exam and that was not mine fault but it’s a long story) finally I managed to do it this summer Smiley

It’s great to hear that! Cheesy And yeah, we have some cool t-shirts with special slogans Wink And it’s cool you know some facts, even from college Wink

It was just an accidental order, some Poles (but not only) say such things.

You know, some of the users can call you too much hyperdox or something like that Wink But I appreciate such works Wink I have similar saying, but rewritten by st. Nicholas Velimirovic, put one the doors to my room Wink (I don’t consider myself as a Serbian nationalist, really Wink)
