... when you have the following conversations with three of your band directors:

- the different between Spain Spanish pronounciation and your Spanish (Mexican) (During this conversation an enssemble member said, "How do yo know? You just read Japanese books!" In your defense, ever since you started learning Finnish you haven't picked up a manga book. :o)

- what country the Slavic-sounding composer of your enssemble comes from.

- what is "kanji" in Japanese and how it connects with Mandarin Chinese.

- what language(s) they speak in Taiwan.

Crazy day in Band today. :D

- Kat

when you are almost late for work as you found a Japanese newspaper amongst the polish newspapers in your local supermarket and decided to buy it but it's not on the system. So you wait twenty minutes for the manager to turn up so she can sell it to you and you are pleased all day that you bought it.

or when the Japan Centre has used crumbled up sheets of a Japanese newspaper to pack and ship your new Ultimate Rice Cooker. Opening the box you forget the rice cooker and start trying to read the packing paper.

I'm actually not disappointed by the occasional lulls in posting on this thread; it's gotten very long yet never really goes cold.

I let my dinner burn last night because I was so engrossed in learning Polish and Italian. So I simply prepared another meal (the first one was inedible) and while it cooked I spent more time learning those languages.

...when you go into a tailspin after finding out that your favorite Polish language learning website is out of commission.

...when that selfsame website becoming operative again is the best part of your week. Yay!

When, after cleaning the floor with your midterms and successfully getting caught up on homework, you begin to experience severe ennui and rack your brain for a cause, until you remember that you have not used your TL in over a week and are experiencing withdrawals and depression!

When you get in a heated argument with someone about what a particular song (Du hast) means and you actually show her your (German) verb conjugation app on your Android...
