What could I do with learning Spanish?
My old Spanish-classes appear to have stuck pretty well ("learning in your sleep," and all that), and I might as well pursue it further: Spanish sounds funny, anyway.
What sort of business is lead to by knowing Spanish, eh?

You could be a translator via the Internet or a Spanish-speaking country. You could also work at an embassy which uses the language, a spanish-events club, a Spanish/Mexican restaurant, a tutor/sub-teacher at a local school, and so on.
Reach out and let your name be known if you're really good. Keep a network/contact list and make sure businesses (airports, police stations, hospitals, etc) know you can do near-emergency translation for them if there's an issue (Spanish-only speaking person) and that you have very reasonable rates.
TLDR; There are so many options. Start searching, ask any Spanish-speaking friends where they would find having an interpreter to be important if they were struggling with English.
Edit: As a note, I love languages. Spanish is something I'm working on as well, though a bit slowly right now. I'm also pondering learning Finnish before Chinese or Russian. So many fun languages!

Mmm, reminds me of homemade Kimchi. I have a really good recipe for it; pm me if you'd like. Actually I wanted to learn it about a year or two ago and still do but it's on the backburner for now. I knew a REALLY good site for Korean...hmm.

How about I link you this place and you can pick whatever language resources you want to your heart's content? =)
