feeling dejected. I am going through some bureaucratic process for something and it didn't go too well today. Every time I go there they speak at a million words a minute and I couldn't understand anything, told I must come back with someone who speaks Serbian. So yea..
That's my weak spot, bureaucracy. I think the government makes it unpleasant on purpose --- you have a window of just a few hours until they close, at 14:30. What other business closes at 14:30??

I'm also feeling frustrated because despite putting in thousands of hours into study, I'm not seeing much reward in comparison to all the other expats that don't give a crap about integrating and pull English everywhere they go.
And my neighbours are drilling holes in their f%^king walls for weeks on end now.

Ok, despite this, I don't know. I'm behind on the Anki for a few days not keeping up, I'll do this now. Getting bored with my book.
what to do?

an article about lie detection machines (poligraf), i was wondering how factually correct these are.
apparently it's hard to fake ___all___ the indicators at the same time, even if chemically it's possible to fake a few ones, hence the popularity of the machine.
in the article I came across the word "nedoumica" and had a sense of deja vu.. it means something like "doubt", "dilemma".

Thanks for clicking the little heart button, people, I appreciate it.

srpski

I made some good progress lately in my book.
Now, I came across the following sentence just now:

Code: Select all

U Sparti bijaše/beše veliko mnoštvo robova.


the meaning is clear, the verb tense however isn't one I've seen often. Something like "In Sparta there had been a great bunch of slaves."
I still have verb tenses to cover. Surprisingly not all of them come up in my readings; I say surprisingly because French writers sure love their archaic tenses, they are everywhere in literature. Perhaps in the future I will encounter them? Perhaps it is not worth going after them in artificial exert, but rather pick the low hanging fruits I can find along the way.

--

du français

Yes... My native tongue, but I'm unbelievably rusty.
I don't plan on spending that much time on it, but from reading some other log here I got the bug and watched a few episodes of dérapages.
No big issues, I did have to concentrate a bit to understand some of the southern accents there and rewind a bit, but well, I'm a speaker of Québecois.

汉语

I've learned a few random words. I can't type them here, because I have only been taught a few spoken words and i'm illiterate.
There's no plan as of now; get used to the tones some more.

Anki is at 3145.

Gotta love when this happens. I just mean that the word is from french, so there's no way I can forget it.
Prošle nedelje, dok je još moglo da izgleda da za druge teme ima prostora u javnosti, u skupštini i na srodnim mestima raspravljalo se o tome da li je Srbija podeljeno društvo. Čuli smo, ponovo, ista mišljenja raznih ljudi koja se daju sažeti u rečenici: Srbija nije podeljeno društvo – postoji tiha većina koja pokušava da sopstvenim sredstvima, kako zna i ume, marljivo pregura dan i načini nešto od svog života, i moćna ali malobrojna elita koja pokušava da poseje seme mržnje, seme podela. Zanimljiv je tajming za takve procene, zanimljivo je i ko ih plasira, a važno je i zbog čega – baš sada.

The arctic comes from greek, ἀρκτικός which means the bear.
Reč "arktik" potiče od grčke reči artikos, što znači "blizu medveda", a pod tim se podrazumeva sazvežđe Veliki medved čije poslednje dve velike zvezde upiru ka zvezdi Polaris, Severnjači.
