Being a linguist surrounded by linguists has its perks.

This is one of the most awesome birthday cards ever!!!

It's got birthday wishes in 11 languages and a syntactic tree.

I had an amazing time last night. They even sang "happy birthday" in a bar at midnight. Thank you, my EMCL crew, and thank you Proko :)

Rainy Tidbits of Potsdam, Germany

Monday, September 23, 2013

We had a guided Potsdam tour today. Our guide was a really cool and funny lady and the two hours flew so fast. With the photos I took I'm not as satisfied, though. (Of course, please don't laugh at my photos, you my friends who try to do artsy photography - you know who you are!) I hate taking pictures in cloudy weather, because the lighting is so bad. However, despite the weather and the fact that it is so small and it seems to me that nothing ever happens here, Potsdam is - I must admit - a beautiful town.

First Impressions: Berlin

Sunday, September 22, 2013

Ok, the camera is here (hooray!) and it's the prettiest little pink baby ever, but I still owe you some snapshots I took with my phone. I didn't manage to update this blog as regularly as I thought I would, because I had to meet a lot of friends who either live in Berlin or have just been travelling so this was their stop. All of them are from Serbia and actually I had a more lively social life in Berlin this month than in my hometown for ages! (I had been living there for the last six months before moving to Germany and had only two friends there, and that is so different from what I was used to in Belgrade, where I had studied. And guess what, I met some really cool people on my very last day in my hometown!)

Anyway, Berlin. I'm not yet sure what I think of the city. I will let myself explore it for few more days before I move to Finland, and then make the final decision. Maybe not even then. I'm coming back here in March, so time will tell. :)

First Impressions: Potsdam, Germany

I don’t have a camera…! I certainly didn't want to begin blogging with this sentence, but hey, a girl cannot control everything. Well, I do have one that I got for my 17th birthday (and that was quite a long time ago), but it’s really old and even my phone camera is better, and that’s why I didn’t want to bring it along. So I’m buying a new camera as soon as I get my scholarship, which should happen soon, and until then I’m going to serve you some Instagram snaps I took since I moved. (If you follow me on Instagram, sorry for doubling, but I inserted more detailed captions here ;))
