Aside

Anyone who has ever been on a plane knows “SkyMall”… a strange shopping catalog that contains all sorts of items, some weird, some a bit practical, some eccentric (the coffee table/fish tank is pretty tempting… not gonna lie :-) ) So what is this post about?   …..applying to a summer study abroad program while currently overseas studying abroad….

Even in the U.S. the amount of paperwork and bureaucracy involved in going abroad is complicated and hard to get finished on time. Overseas its even worse.  Especially when you don’t really have a functioning scanner, and/or you keep having to interrupt your host family with another form you’ve just discovered in the back of your folder that was due about a week ago…    my point? and what does this have to do with Skymall?

I distinctly remember there being a scanner in Skymall. A small one that looks like a stick with a paper slot in it…. I SHOULD’VE BOUGHT IT!!! My advice: if you have the occasion to get a travel scanner, and you plan on traveling and there might even be the possibility of paperwork…buy it. Its worth it.

That being said, hopefully all my paperwork will be sorted by out by next Wed…which is good because I have 7-10 pg paper due soon. Its not the length thats the trouble (7-10 isn’t really that much), its the fact its in French… gotta hand it to SIT I may not be able to read as well as a 6 year old orally- pronunciation is a bit of a problem (I bought this “I’m learning How to Read Game” for young kids…the explanation of how to use the educational tool had the audacity to say that Letters go together to from sounds, which create words… I know English has phonetic issues regarding letter, but not like French… most American English make use of the majority of their letters. The first card I looked at had “haut” ..H’s aren’t pronounced, and I’m pretty sure the T isn’t too…exactly…) anywho… so, my paper is going to take up a lot of time.

 

:-) There will be more this weekend, I just needed to put this out there.

  2. В последнее время малую известность
    получили ягоды годжи. И это не правильно ,
    именно они супер полезные и при этом противные и красивые .

    Ягода годжи хранится в свежем виде .

    При заваривании ее засыпают ягоды годжи – Elinor
    – горячей присыпкой, чаще всего сочетая с цементом.
    Раствор с ягодами годжи получается очень вкусным
    и невыносимым.
