Lol! That is so true! I don't think I even have any music on my phone, just foreign audiobooks and language courses! And I wouldn't change a thing :-p (except memory size!).

Battlefield 3 in Russian but you put the subtitles in Spanish, just to ensure you
understand every word... while at the same time listening to Serbian rap.
Yeah very familiar, just change languages and activity types...

When I feel really guilty about having taken a break from learning languages for a few days and even more guilty about admitting that I actually do have a social life away from this forum.

When that nice pair of shoes you splurged on, which you knew was made in Israel, is even more appealing
because of the lovely script on the box! And Hebrew isn't even one of your languages ... yet.

On that same theme: when the notebook in which you jot down new vocabulary is more valuable to you than the
Precious.

When you feel lucky when you have found a French textbook you had wanted some time ago in
a second hand bookshop. And then, you flip through the pages and find three four-leafed
clovers dried inside. Isn't it some kind of a sign?

In the same bookshop, I found the textbook I had been learning from when I was nine or
ten years old. It is a bit old (but phrases like "Michel et Monique jouent au cache-
cache." don't change that much) and some chapters mention Czechoslovakia and Soviet Union
(our teachers had sticked a paper over those and replaced the dialogues with new ones), I
still think it is waaaaay better than most modern textbooks aimed at children. I have
reserved the book till next week and perhaps, it will serve my sister or brother one day
(at least I tell myself it is the reason to buy it. In fact, it is pure nostalgy).
