Hi, my new friend,Jim! I am glad that you have answered me. I was not sure that you would write. Thank you that you found time for the answer. I think that you have many questions for me.I will try to tell you everything about me. I hope that you will tell me about yourself too. I dont know what to tell you about myself at the beginning, but I hope that you will understand me. OK I will try to begin. My name is Anastasiya. My friends call me Nastya, or Nastusha. You can call me as you want. I wont be offended. I am 30 years old. I was born on December 25 in 1973 year. My height is 5 feet 6 inches. My weight is 115 pounds. Probably you will be very much afflicted when you find out that I live not in your country. But I very much hope that it does not frighten you, because I the same lady like many other ladies living in the different countries. I the same person with heart and soul. I have been given birth in village Orsha. Orsha is situated near town Tver, Russia. Tver is 168 km north from Moscow. There are near 1 thousands people in Orsha. It is a very old village. I began to get education in the secondary comprehensive school. After I finished it I entered the medical college. I finished it with excellent results and entered Medical University. At present I work in a small Dental polyclinic. I work as a dentist. We have a little collective, but very friendly. Jim, I shall have an opportunity to send you letters only from Monday till Friday, because I havent got a computer at home. I use a computer at my work. On work I can use a computer almost freely. So it is more convenient for me to write you from my work. Though it too depends not from me. With a computer works another employee. I have not bad relations with her, but she can give me a computer only when she has a free time. For this reason I hope that you understand me. My new friend, answer my questions, if you can: 1. Do you like your job? 2. What is your favourite film? 3. What kind of music do you like? 4. Have you ever had a friend from the other country?(the friend on correspondence). I thank you for your answers beforehand. My new friend, you may not answer these questions if you dont want. In my next letter I shall necessarily answer other your questions. I will tell to you what music and what cinema I like. I send you my picture. I hope to you it is pleasant. I will waiting for your letter with impatience. Anastasiya. Hi Jim! How your day? I hope you are glad to receive my letter because when I have received your letter I really was delighted. Many thanks. At onceI want to tell to you about my opportunities to write letters to you. I write to you letters on my job because I have no a personal computer. The computer is in an accounting department. Lady who works with a computer will sometimes allow me to use a computer in my interests, but only when this lady has a free time. It depends not on me unfortunately. I work five days in a week - from Monday till Friday. It is the standard established in Russia. On this I shall not be capable to write to you and to receive your letters on Saturday and on Sunday. But sometimes I work on Saturday and even on Sunday. It is called - maintenance standby. In our polyclinic always works a doctor on duty who works on Saturday and on Sunday because the toothache hasnt schedules (smile). Sometimes I work as the doctor on duty. On this maybe I will can write to you letters even on Saturday or on Sunday. Maybe. Do you want to know how I will write to you my letters? I write to you letters during all my working day by small parts - in those short time intervals when the computer will not be occupied. And something else. Me have warned that our computer has dependent system of sending of mail. My letters will be sent only after service mail which is sent two times in day - at midday and after finish of the working day. Probable, my letter will be sent automatically after finish of the working day. Working day in our polyclinic comes to an end at 22.00, but my working day comes to an end at 17.00. I work in childrens branch. If you want, I can tell to you about my work. Only tell. Oh! I promised you to tell what music I like. Now I have some free minutes and with pleasure will spend this time to tell to you about my interests. I like various music. All depends on mood. I like to listen classical music. I like Dunaevski And Chajkovsky. I like to listen simply instrumental music. Such music allows to relax and have a rest. Under such music I like to think. I like to listen to guitar masterpieces of Joe Satriani. I very much like group Dire Straits. I like Pink Floyd. They are not similar to anybody. It is great group. I like Madonna, Robbie Williams and George Michael and many others. In America many great musicians. I like many Russian musicians. For example Philip Kirkorov, Valeria or groups: Chaif, Splin. But you likely do not know them. I very much like cinema. In Russia create few good films. I like works of such directors as Tarkovsky, Konchalovsky, Mikhalkov. My favourite movies - Siberian Barber and Tired by the Sun. Its masterpieces of the Russian cinema. The American movies in Russia use huge popularity. The American movies is considered the greatest. I very much like the American movies and I like many American actors. For example: Gladiator, Brave Heart. Mel Gibson - good actor. I like films - The Sixth Sense, the Rainman, One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest, Gone with the Wind, Magnificent Seven, the Godfather, Groundhog day, The Scent of a Woman. My favourite actors - Bruce Willis, Al Pacino, Kevin Costner, Samuel L. Jackson, Julia Roberts, Tom Hanks, Demi Moore, Kevin Spacey. My hobby, if its possible to tell so - the English language. I have loved English long ago, when I studied at school. In Russia the program of training necessarily includes foreign language, as a rule - English, German or French. I have entered in group of the English language and I am happy that I made it. I very much like your language. After school, I continued studying of English language at the university. I like this language. It is a very soft and easily-memorized language. I learn the English language easily. At present I attend courses of the English language. I study your language within 18 years. I want to know this language perfectly. I know that now I admit mistakes, but I hope you wont angry. What else to tell about me? I never was married and I havent children. I am lonely and the reason of my loneliness not only in me. However, I do not know if it interestingly for you. I live honestly, and it brings pleasure to me. I am optimist and I like to smile, because a smile - mirror of soul. For happiness is not required many things. Likely the main thing that does not suffice me now is love. People without love cannot be happy. But when near there is a close person whom you love, life becomes fine irrespective of where you live and what you have. But the loneliness fills a life with sadness. But I do not want to speak about sadness anymore. I am glad that I have an opportunity to write to you and I am glad that you write to me. And at present it really causes a smile on my face. I should finish my letter. You have the big family? What do you look for in a soulmateJim? If you do not want, you may do not answer my questions. I should tell, that the picture from my first letter was taken by my friend Olga. I am very grateful to her, that she free-of-charge creates to me beautiful pictures. I hope, that you understand about what I. Olga for thinking very close person. I think, that we as sisters. I use dating for the first time in my life. I never had the friend from other country. It is my first experience of dialogue in a similar way, and at present I am very glad. You the first and only one man with whom I have entered correspondence. I have given my address only to you and on this to me writes only one man - its you. I think, that it is interesting to you. I never was abroad Russia. I do not know, that for it it is necessary. But I do not exclude an opportunity of our meeting. I think, that it would be fine - for seeing each other. For a meeting it is necessary to study ell each other. We should not be afflicted at a meeting. How you think? I am right? What is life like in a small village in Russia? I think that it is very cold? Do you like the weather? It is very bad. Now in villages very poorly and coldly. I hope to receive your letter soon. Sincerely and with the best regards. Anastasiya.
