When a good friend of you who works in the foreign office tells you that his next posting is Albania and invites you to visit him, and your first thought is to look for Albanian language resources so you can prepare for a visit in a year's time.

When your friend forbids you to learn Portuguese because you might go to Lisabon together some time in future and you already know too many languages :-D (but I think I'll make her learn Portuguese with me. Portugal is one of her dreams and I think I'm enough of a language nerd to convince her ;-) )

When you wake up at 6 am (with the alarm clock) to study languages before to go to work,
then one day you're too much tired and you fall asleep... and you dream about studying
languages :D :D :D

Guilty :P

And I thought I was the only one. At one point I was considering 5:30 but then decided
that was taking it too far. Sometimes sleep has to come first.
