Frühjahrsmüdigkeit already? Or maybe it's because work is so very mind-numbingly slow and boring at the moment. Came home from Russian class yesterday, barely managed to cook some pasta, eat it, and be frustrated over not being able to download the new NIN album (see below), before I fell into bed and slept for 8 hours.

I'm really enjoying Russian, though. I don't know why it is, but I'm having a lot more fun learning non-romanic languages and I still mean to pick up Turkish again at one point in the future. What baffles me though, listening to the others in my class, is why people (educated people) seem to have such a hard time accepting that different languages have different structures, especially once you move beyond the ones based on Latin, and that it's more sensible to just accept the new rules and work with them instead of constantly comparing and dwelling on the differences. If you're a linguist, sure, but if you're merely trying to learn a new language, you're really making it harder for yourself, IMO.




In fanish news...



Good for them, not so good for me, who's been unable to download since yesterday evening. And I guess I'll have to wait, because being the good ex-fangirl that I am, I already payed my $5 at the official site (€ 3,29 for 36 tracks? I can definitely live with this new way of selling music directly... Also, 36 new instrumental NIN tracks? ::fangirls like whoa:: Sweet.) instead of going to amazon... ETA: Downloading now!


But no wonder, if they've even made Austrian (internet-)headlines. :)
