During the month of November I have been conducting interviews
for my degree paper and I have met some interesting people.
Among them was a nurse who is working with the refugees,
a UN lawyer, a teacher and journalist working in Palestine
and a woman who is considering transitioning to male.
What, you may ask, am I writing about?
I am writing about communication in multilingual couples
(whose main language is English), and I have met people
from 10 different countries just in the last few weeks.
It's also gotten me out of the house, which is a good thing.
Unfortunately the actual writing of the paper isn't coming along as smoothly...
I won Magaly's wonderful book giveaway in October
and yesterday I received a box full of yummies!
Inside were the two books and the tote I had won,
but also a beautiful card, a fantastic procrastinator's
planner, two glittery adornments and some wicked socks!
We've had two pieces of good news this week.
I found out that I passed my semantics exam - with flying colors :)
- and yesterday my man finally signed his contract and became
a permanent full-time employee - and he got a raise!
Tonight we are celebrating with some Amarone and cheese.
If you are anything like me and you are looking for a Yule
blog party/challenge, head on over to Professor Z's!
All through the second week of December she is hosting
the marvellous Gothidays, and anyone is welcome to join.
