Another couple of pictures from yesterday's walk...












In other not-so-news, life continues uneventful. Friday and Saturday I had a Photoshop course because I decided I needed to start improving my computer skills so that I can at least put something in my resume, but since I decided that sometime mid-autumn, this was pretty much the only thing I could still take time off for, and I thought I might as well start with something that at least interests me, even if it might not be the most useful thing in the long run. I really enjoyed learning something new, though; I hadn't really realised how much I'd missed that. Also, the certificate is apparently enough to be able to buy the Student and Teacher Photoshop Edition, so there's that.

Speaking of learning, Russian continues frustratingly slow. I do actually notice a progress in reading,—I bought a Russian/German version of a couple of Chekhov's short stories recently, and for the most part I could stay on the Russian side. Writing also gets easier. Talking, though... my brain simply doesn't process all that grammar fast enough. It's depressing.



I'm sort of watching Girl with a Pearl Earring on TV while I'm typing, and while I can't say it's very interesting so far, it's certainly visually stunning, like the paintings come alive...

Thank you! I've got to say that for a change I'm really happy with how these turned out...
