My name is Bob, and I'm currently in the Air Force stationed in Baghdad, Iraq. All I have to say is thank god for the internet to have sites like yours!
I'm 27 years old and have a fascination for shorthand, both written and machine. I am currently learning Simplified, and just ordered a simplified dictionary to go with my studies.
One thing that is probably holding me up is the writing portion. Sometimes I stick my book in my cargo pouch when I go to work, and don't often get a chance to do a lot of writing. However, I have read and completely understand up through Chapter 4 so far. I do plan on writing everything that I have read so far, but it's just a matter of when I can get it all done.
I just wanted to introduce myself, and hope to be on here quite often within the next few months!
(TSgt Hull for any military guys out there!)
