Stress, stress, stress…

So much to do. So little time to do it.

At least that’s how it feels. I’ve dusted off my books and taken up my studies again at the University. Getting my English degree done. But I’m also working a lot at the moment so there’s this constant struggle of fitting both studies/exams/seminars and actual work into my schedule. Of course I caught a cold – again – too, so I feel pretty exhausted.

Last week was specially stressful because I celebrated my 27th birthday this weekend and so there was a lot of cleaning, baking and cooking that needed to get done before all the guests arrived. Never realized just how much time you actually spend in the kitchen when you cook and bake everything yourself. Lucky me, my cousin and my niece were both such sweethearts and helped me out. I think the party turned out great. Hope the guests thought so, too.

Had an exam in General Grammar the day before yesterday. Fingers crossed I passed it!

Ciao!

I happen to be somewhat of a language geek. I just really like learning languages. And I’m fairly good at it, too. My goal is to be able to speak at least 9 languages. Call me crazy if you like.

The languages I speak (so far) are Swedish, English, German, Japanese, French and Spanish – in that very order – and I’ve now decided to add Italian to this list.

If I had to pick a favorite I would say Japanese. It’s so melodic and sweet. But it takes time learning how to write and read. So many characters!
