forgot to remove the 'engaged' part again
I'm sorry but this post is too funny
go for russian, dude, i'm a junior in college and it's great. Best part is, english natives knowing russian makes you a hot commodity, girls will fuck you for your passport
My father's side of the family do. But my father basically cut ties with them until his marriage with my mother, and always refused to have them help him in basically any way. Political differences fucked up their relationship for a long time.
I mean, we were not poor or anything. Journalism and Law pay decently, even though my mother didn't get paid often, what she does is mostly activism, for example defending workers who trashed their workplace while on strike or helping political refugees. I would say we were upper middle class. But that's nothing compared to my paternal family. To give you an idea, my grandpa now lives in the family's castle, all of my cousins went to the best private schools, traveled all over the world, some got stuff like an apartment at New York for their 18th birthday, and they could retire now if they wanted.
Sometimes it felt a bit weird at family gatherings, but eh. They are all good people, if maybe a bit disconnected from reality.
I just wanted you to know that I was sorry if there was any bad feelings left between us, I dont want to make a big deal, I'm just happy to see you
Why dont you use the template? It organizes everything better
I'm too fucking lazy to add more details, but here it is.
Japan used to be fairly poor and large numbers of people emigrated to latin america, due to it being very easy to emigrate and almost every country in the americas have birthright citizenship, so its was easy for your kids to become citizens after you Settle down. Peru has had several Japanese prime ministers.
I'm actually half-japanese... and that kinda sucks too, since everyone here also claims to be one, or tells me that i'm bullshiting, which i', not (I even have some retarded and autistic friends who name themselves after some weird shitty anime).
Oh and let's not forget the fact that Mexicans are almost always racist as fuck.
Someone even told me once to fuck off back to China, but they didn't expect me to answer in Spanish (Btw that was hilarious af).
Updated with historical flags from the period and more accurate info
Its ok lad, maybe you will be the interesting great great grandfather on someones tree some day
>mfw we got the latin countries to deport their japs so we could put them into camps during WW2
I think he's Indian but I could be wrong.
They haven't met him yet, but will pretty soon. My dad is still kinda "ruskies+cold war=bad" but I'm sure it'll be fine. The issue with my sisters boyfriend is that they met online while he was an adult and she was a minor, and my parents really didn't like that. See >>53658414, but he also wants my sister to move to Canada, which my parents really don't want to happen.
While looking for grad schools. From the looks of it is that we're ending up at the same one.
Ah, I've talked to you before it seems! Well, long story short is I found a fulltime MS IR program in the UK that is a year long, and will be a lot cheaper than Georgetown. And the neat thing is it's an half hour train from where my boyfriend will be living, so we can live together while he does his MSEng.
I know. He's not very nice either.
>Ah, I've talked to you before it seems!
Yes we have, a while back, I will be studying in Ireland during the summer it seems, but I'm jealous that you get to spend an entire year in the UK probably especially when its probably cheaper than paying regular tuition at my school.
Good luck on your masters though! International relations seems interesting, my mother traveled all over the world and I am very jealous of her and if doesn't bring the money at least you found a guy in STEM.
Do Newfies regret joining canada? Is there any kind of independence movement?
At this point you're kind of like the princess of /int/! Everybody has seen your half-selfies
Miami has toilets, but we've still got some sanitation issues.

>Joey Smallwood signs Newfoundland into confederation in '49
>Canada then allows Russian, Chinese, Korean, Japanese boats into the Grand Banks of Newfoundland (at the time was the best place for fishing in the Atlantic)
>they used way too small net sizes for regulation, which meant they caught young and old alike, destroying their ability to repopulate
>Canada did nothing
>these industrial fishing tankers scooped along the bottom of the banks, disrupting any sort of ecosystem for fish to be born and grow
>Canada did nothing
>a huge fishing area that had been used since the 1400's and 1500's by Portuguese, British, Spanish, Dutch and more had been destroyed due to lack of enforcing common sense rules in less than half a century
>this absolutely destroyed Newfoundland's economy, tradition, culture and pride
fuck joey smallwood
pic related, Newfoundland dogs
to add to
there are small scale independence movements, but nothing concrete, as their economy is still recovering and it would be hard for them to deal with this on their own
Had to take some wild guesses, i couldnt met any of my grandparents tbf, they were either too old or too dead to actually have a conversation with
>You need to diversify that economy lad
oh yeah, we eventually did, but when Newfoundland became Canadian they were still a North Atlantic Banana Republic, with no export other than fish and some mining.
Nowadays, they've diversified to a point, with a lot more coal/iron mining and oil, as the Hibernia Oil fields to their east are really rich
since they are the easternmost point of the americas, they are big for naval navigation and international shipping
hopefully they get more industry soon though
here's a full sized Newfoundland Dog
