    Another thing about these types of events is they can be a motivator to study harder or brush up on old languages to prepare for them, much like for class or family reunions you want to lose weight beforehand or something. I’d love to go to one of these meetings and meet other people like me, but unfortunately there’s always something getting in the way!
