I am an Obsolete Skill
You are 'Latin'. Even among obsolete skills, the
tongue of the ancient Romans is a real
anachronism. With its profusion of different
cases and conjugations, Latin is more than a
language; it is a whole different way of
thinking about things.
You are very classy, meaning that you value the
classics. You value old things, good things
which have stood the test of time. You value
things which have been proven worthy and
valuable, even if no one else these days sees
them that way. Your life is touched by a
certain 'pietas', or piety; perhaps you are
even a Stoic. Nonetheless, you have a certain
fascination with the grotesque and the profane.
Also, the modern world rejects you like a bad
transplant. Your problem is that Latin has
been obsolete for a long time.
What obsolete skill are you?

Well... I started with a new company in downtown Atlanta and I like it. We're busy al the time and I'm exhausted when I get home - enough to go to bed at oh 9 - but I'm learning alot and meeting new people.
I made the Dean's List so I'm pretty happy with that and won 3rd place (yes, it's not first but it's better than nothing) in a poetry contest at school (read college). Pretty impressive for someone who work(s)-ed 60-70 hours a week, isn't it?
At any rate, this new job is casual corporate but I've yet to find anything to wear that compliments these oh so fashionable "walking boot" that I have to wear due to sprained ankles. Yes ankles, I sprained both at the same time but that's what you get when trying to play Dukes of Hazzard. (Mental note: must write to Ford and ask them to slightly lengthen the windows of the Ford Mustang), lol. That's not how it happened but I'll let you decide.
HAPPY SPRING ALL
