exhilaration: (impossible things)
19. If you could be anywhere in the world, but you had to be there for a certain cause, where would you be and why?

I'm not sure what "being there for a cause" really means. Does it mean being there for a purpose other than "just for fun" or does it mean a cause like helping people or fixing something or that kind of thing? If I could be anywhere in the world and serving some kind of purpose, maybe I would like to be back in China, maybe teaching English. Thing is, I wonder if I wouldn't feel the same about being in China since the people I was there to see are now HERE. Maybe it would just seem like being in a very foreign environment, and I would just find it stressful. Actually... I don't really want to be in China, much as I actually do. I wish I had been able to stay there longer and see more and do more and just, you know, absorb more... but I think I'd have terrible accessibility issues and I wouldn't actually be that happy there.

So, what's a cause that could use my contribution? Maybe... language preservation? Studying and documenting languages that are going extinct? I think that might count as a cause, preserving something for posterity. And that's something that's happening all over the world, so I could really go anywhere. So, ok. I'd stay here, in North America, but I'd travel the continent preserving language samples from Native Americans. So, there. That's my cause.
