When you've been looking forward to posting this since the summer or maybe even spring.

When you're embarrassed that you didn't know the forms with lienisin, no matter how rare they are.

....when it's just 10 minutes before New Year, and you're logged onto HTLAL.


Right, I'd better scoot - I'm not missing my glass of champagne.
Happy 2014 everyone!

When you wonder where all the other nerds have gone since January 1.

I know where I have been: I have been substantiating in situ my claim to being able to communicate in Dutch, even though it has cost me a lot of money to stay in that aforementioned situ. And my biggest worry (apart from the weather) has been that my minuscule van Goor's Danish-Dutch dictionary didn't even have a translation for ""noisy". And that I haven't brought anything in Irish or Latin with me to study in the long cold winter evenings.

When you can remember 20,000 words in your TL, but not where you put your keys.

When you shout, "Oh, no, here come the mushrooms!" in a tone of despair. Your brother has listened without
comment for the past hour to you mumbling Polish words under your breath, but now he stares at you in
surprise and you explain that all of the different kinds of mushroom you put into your Polish flashcards are
starting to show up. (Why did I think it was a good idea to add words like mleczaj and muchomor to
Anki last summer?)
