YKYALN when you go to the library book sale to buy books in foreign languages and start using them to prove to your family that you actually meant it; you need them. And now your desktop is full of language files, keyboards, alphabet links, and YouTube clips.

They don't accept Sámi as an answer. That's so bogus.

You know you're a language nerd when you spend each 10 minutes of your free time learning a different foreign language and when you start thinking in more than three foreign languages simultaneously, translating your thoughts from a language to another, and ending up forgetting what the actual thought was about.
(Yes, it happened to me. :D )

when you think that perhaps you should use your flash cards while waiting for the different threads to come up after you click on them...or, just develop more patience.. nah, get out the flash cards.

When you think the coolest of all your birthday presents is a Finnish conversation guide your BFF gave you!!!

Hahaha I always thought a foreign lang guide would be a great present but never thought I would actually get one! Lol, at least someone is taking my language nerdiness seriously hahaha. The best part is that Finnish is not even a target language for me...it's so unexpectedly perfect :D

When you're cashier at a store and you are scanning the customer's items, the whole thinking about German-related stuff, so you accidently tell him the total price in German, the customrer gives you puzzled look and you apologize that you are learning German and he laughs a little, after the completed transaction, he smiles and says "danke." haha, this sooo made my day!!

I don't think I cld get fired for this... can I? lol, but many here speak Spanish, even the signs are in both English and Spanish.... whyyyy not German???? :(
