Favorite Things Friday

Phew. Made it through another week. I almost thought I wouldn't survive for a while. Anyway, it's time for a few of my favorite things.

1. The German-American Mind Meld that is currently going on in my brain. I actually have a love-hate relationship with this, because oftentimes it leaves me looking like a speechless weirdo no matter which language I'm speaking. When I'm wanting to speak English, it seems like I can only think in German and vice versa. Either way, I love that this is happening, because it's a part of being fluent, and that means I'm almost there.
 2. Teaching. Yes, this is a favorite. Even when I have a crappy day and students are a royal pain in the butt, I love it. I love that they listen when I talk, I love that I'm getting to share my knowledge with them, and provide them with valuable language skills. I love that I get to be at the front of a classroom tellin' it like it is.
3. Savage Garden. Old school, right?! But who doesn't love this song?

4. Friends. Yes. My friends are my favorite. Especially all of the new friends that I'm making on this here bloggy-blog! You guys are all awesome, and I love finding all of the new exciting blogs. Anyway, I've been kind of homesick over the past month, and this girl (mah bestest fran) has always been just a Skype call away, and she's so supportive, and the best friend a girl could have.
5. Ronan Keating. Seriously, why have I never heard of this guy. I actually came across him just a second ago and thought he was blog worthy. You're welcome. Ha. 

What are your favorite things? 

Happy FRIDAY, people!!!!

So I just went through a few of your posts. I've just joined the party and so glad I found you. I grew up in Colombia among Germans. I know funny, huh so German is my second language as well as it's culture it's like it's my own. You are lucky to be experiencing life there and seeing another world. Hope you take as much as you can from it.
Following ;)
P.S I could not live without skype.

k i relate to the language this, but with Spanish! It's terrible! Ha I always feel like such an idiot but I'll forget random words and want to say them in Spanish...Or just randomly say a word when I should be speaking only English. guess it's a good sign though, right? And teaching seems so fun! I'm debating about getting a teaching degree for my masters!

Kylee - I must say... I highly recommend teaching! You should go for it! I'm a little biased, though...
