I know Norwegian, English and I'm learning Spanish. Hablo un poco Español.

I want to learn Serbian because I have a friend whose first language is that. And I think it would be a tad easier on them if I chatted with them in that language instead of english haha.
The other two are because my ancestors were Norwegian and German.
I'd learn Irish too because of that. But I don't really wanna learn Irish....

You should learn Norwegian. I can help you. German is really strange compared to Norwegian. I don't know how to explain that any further.

but aniway, the only language i'm learning now it's english

To be honest, learning Cyrillic (or any other consistent scripts, like the Japanese kana) is shit easy, and should be the least of your worries.

One night when I was bored I memorized the lowercase Russian alphabet. I was able to recall and write all of them down and pronounce them. I never repeated them since so I forgot them.

Divide them into groups of 6. Focus on the first letter of the first group, drawing it as you pronounce it. Do it over and over again until you feel you've gotten it down, then move on to the second letter. Once you've memorized the second letter, recall and draw the first letter, and then the second letter consecutively. (without cheating) Continue until you've nailed the first group, then move onto the second. Once you've memorized the second group, do the same thing I said earlier, except instead of letters, do it with the groups.

Also, make sure you're learning the correct stroke order, or else your writing will look vastly different.

Eventually you'll be able to recall, draw and pronounce all the lowercase letters. From there on, practice them daily (preferrably every few hours in the beginning, if you have the opportunity) and eventually they should stick.

Then learn the capital letters in the same way, tomorrow. Or a week from now, or a month, or right now. It doesn't matter when you initially memorize it, but you need to make sure to repeat them or else they'll fall out of memory.

It's simple memorization work.

It really saddens me when people are scared away from a language because of it using a different script. For me, that's the funnest part to learn. You should rather worry about learning standard vocabulary and perfecting your grammar which takes much more work and much more time.

German and Latin (I've already started learning a little bit of both).

They are beautiful languages.

Dutch > German.

Also, swearing is totally normal for the Dutch.
