When you wake up one morning with a fullness in your throat, perhaps tonsils are swollen, and the first thing you compain about is, not being able to do the proper "ach" sound in German, so every morning since then, the first thing you do when you wake up is see if you can "ach" right again, which by the way is getting there, but not yet there fully.

When you just had the realization when writing "swollen" that it would be like it you combined the modal verbs "wollen" and "sollen" together, it would be "swollen" hahaha.

...when you spend time on Wikipedia searching about whatever comes to your head just so
you can change the article's language to your TL and learn it.

...when you've been reading this thread for the past week and you're sad that it finally ended.

...when this is your first post.

When you list the languages of all four countries in Group B at Euro as "studying". And if English counts for Ireland, also all the languages in Group C.

When you had to get a super duper important book from the university library for an even more super duper course project that virtually relies on it, but of course you end up with a huge book on Danish (just because you're so close to the Nordic library - helooo), that is obviously written for academic scholars of the language - and now reading it instead is the super duper important task for you.

When you are not surprised, shocked, or amazed at the sheer number of languages that many
of the people on this forum are studying or speak, knowing that it just takes dedication,
time, enjoyment, and hard work, whereas your classmates would just think that everyone on
this forum must be a sheer genius who can soak up languages without even an ounce of
effort and so they should never strive to learn even one language properly because
they'll never be as good.

When you are shocked and dismayed at your classmates' attitudes regarding languages and
language learning.

When at a funeral your first reaction in trying not to cry is to silently count in another language as it takes more concentration and focus.

:-) I can remember once getting a head cold, when I was actively studying French, and
being thrilled to find I could make those nasal French noises in a much more authentic-
sounding way :-)

When you are watching Doctor Who(Season 4 Episode 14: Journey's End) and your favorite
part is when Martha teleports to Germany and the Daleks are speaking German.

When you stop the video and immediately look up what they're saying.
