Big Thank You

I just wanted to post a general, public "Thank you!!" to everyone who responded to my post yesterday about moving to Seattle. All of your comments are deeply appreciated and wonderfully helpful. (Obviously, anyone that wants to add anything, of course, that is welcomed. =D)

Hi!

Hey! My name is Ryan, I'm a Junior History and Political Science major at Louisiana Tech University. I was born and raised in a small country town, but have spent a lot of time traveling around the country and spending time in big cities. I'll be attending UW this summer, I'm taking an intensive first year Russian course. I have to have reading proficiency in Russian for grad school so I figured if I had to sacrifice a summer to school I might as well do it in the Northwest. My first experience with the Northwest was three weeks in Portland this last summer and I fell in love. I was just wondering if you guys could tell me any not to be missed things I need to do while I'm in Seattle, I'd love to know anything about Seattle or UW you think I might need to know(I've never been there). I'm also curious about meeting people, I'm single, I'm not shy but certainly not extroverted either. I've never been in a city the size of Seattle by myself knowing no one and it scares me to no end. I don't even know that I'll have free time, I've never taken an "intensive" language course. That word intensive scares me a bit. So any advice or tips you have would be great. Thanks!
