Oops, I just noticed I haven't updated my journal in quite a while... again. Twitter is giving me this sense of being social online, but still, I shouldn't abandon a journal quite so badly. ;) Although I'm thinking of switching the actual journal over to Dreamwidth since I made a new account with I name I actually like there: urania, just my name without any frills there, yay! So if you're on DW too, please add that account? :) I'm not sure yet though, I'm still quite attached to my trusty old LJ... At least I'll try not to forget to read my reading page over there! :)

Oh, and I actually don't know if I wrote about that here yet, but this semester I'm doing a Polish course! It's a lot of fun so far, and not that difficult yet which is good. I keep accidentally writing Finnish conjunctions and stuff instead of Polish ones, though... Haha, I hope my brain stops messing around with that soon. On Friday we're actually having a test, I haven't studied for it yet because I've been busy with research for another course. :s Our topic is "Whaling" in the context of Atlantic Studies, it's actually quite okay. I think my group is kind of lazy though and when even I think that...

I've started a diet, but I already don't like it. Advent/Christmas just isn't the best time for it. xD Still, cross your fingers for me not abandoning it. :P

I apologise for the randomness that is this post...

Added you :)

This reminded me mixing up French with Spanish during my oral exam. Good thing my professor obviously didn't notice XD

Added you back!

Haha, French and Spanish are not quite as obvious as Finnish and Polish, I suppose. ;)

Oh oh! I live in a whaling town! Lots of whaling stuff laying around and the museum is full of it.

Tromsø had a museum about it too! I'm mostly focussing on Norway, but I came across some stuff about Norwegians setting up companies on Shetland, so maybe there's more stuff about Orkney too. :)

Shetland was a bit bigger on whaling (the town I live in was built for the whaling/herring fishing industries). One of my neighbours has loads of harpoons on his walls when you're going up the stairs XD It's a bit creepy! But he's a diver and when he's been diving in the harbour, it's full of loads of whale bones and rubbish that was thrown overboard from whaling ships. Some of it is really cool :)
