  1. Geography graduate here from California. Ended up in Washington DC. How I still don't know. Working full-time here at Georgetown University and I understand I get free tuition after a year.

I watch Israeli movies and I'm able to pick up more than I imagined I would. However I don't know how to prove knowledge
