Yesterday was Valentine’s day, as usual I got nothing. I don’t mind though because its stupid raising the price of chocolate and restaurant meals for one night. I did see this man in the supermarket though in the evening.
I made friends with the Belgium guy at work, he’s an intern and is here until June. We were kind of forced to get a long because we were put in a room in the basement all day to pack up brochures. He is 22 and he thought I was in my 20’s as well. He was visibly shocked when I told him how old I was.
A surprisingly large amount of packages went to New Zealand and Australia, again, Belgium guy was shocked I was from NZ because I have lost my accent.
I was shocked when he told me he spoke 4 languages, I was in awe. (Flemish, English, French, German)
I then saw what frozen mince meat looked like, I swear it looks like cardboard pellets.
I have also taken it upon myself to learn Russian. I think its going okay, despite probably pronouncing everything wrong.
Привет, как теба зовчт?
Как твои дела?
Хорошо а у тебя?
Its hard to type out and read and understand and pronounce. I’ve been wandering the house repeating the formal/informal greetings. The dogs getting confused.
