We don't need whys, but here are some reasons why you should.

I remember it was not so cold anymore and we were having this constant Kafeinya pizza mood, and there we were, ordering another one, dear Andrushka just smiled at us. I was waiting for Tati, Syd and Valya, the girl that just travelled to Portugal, I was to teach her some portuguese before I came back home. I had so much fun with that, I'm so proud of this language, it's sweet, soft, and seems to just play along. And winter just ended. So what now? We had gone crazy indeed. How crazier can we get. So there we were, Tati and Syd eating a pizza while I read some Camões to Valya, speaking one portuguese, the sound of it, was already so awakward, I should probably call Sophia and share that horrible feeling. Where did my mother language go? And doesn't Camões sound the same? But as I said, how crazier could we get. Camões left the room. Me, Tati and Syd started to make a list. Actually, we met just to do that. And I'm so proud of this. The list goes.

(It starts at 51 because the "Reasons to have sex" group on facebook had already listed 50).


51 - Because he's wearing the tight underwear you gave him.

52 - Because you just bought matrioshka underwear.

53 - Because it's goddam fuckin -30 outside.

54 - Because you're drunk and don't respond for your acts.

55 - Because he has a foreign accent.

56 - Because he's going to the army and leaving the country.

57 - Because you don't want to learn [the russian gramatical] cases.

58 - Because it's [blank] holiday.

59 - Because you finished your sudoku book.

60 - Because you're and atheist and god is not watching you.

61 - Because he's related to Price Harry in 15th degree.

62 - Because it's 3am and you want a cup of water.

63 - Because you're pregnant and you can't get more pregnant.

64 - Because you found the perfect sofa after shopping for sex-favorable sofas.

65 - Because it prevents cancer (what? что за бред?)

66 - Because he gave up being a priest (Thank you, Lord!)

67 - Why not?-feelings

68 - Because you finally found two people that agree.

69 - Because you lived in Kirov and you're in MOSCOW.

70 - Because it's finally spring. And it's APRIL. (You've been waiting since Maslenitsa in February)

71 - Because you finally had the guts to kill the fuckin' cats but it's going to the dacha anyway.

72 - Because you're почему-то covered in shampoo and now you're making out.

73 - Because he's not a rapper (a rapist, smart-o)
Even tho the word rapper is scratched we actually met a russian rapper so yeah. Maybe it shouldn't be scratched at all). And we actually though rapper standed for rappist before Syd arrive - she's american, or as we used to say, ALASKIAN.

74 - Because that random guy had three condoms and there's an empty приезд [stairway]

75 - Because you desesperately want to use the instrumental языком [with tongue]

In russian there are gramatical cases that decline the word. The nominative word of "tongue", without declination, is "yazik", but if ou use the instrumental case, that is needed when you use something to complete and action, the it is "yazikom". We had "yazikom" in my first russian-english phrasebook in the sex part. There was a lot of respect going on for that little book for travelers. This is actually how much you can respect a phrasebook

76 - Because it's made for sharing.

77 - Because Angelina Jolie adopted another kid.

78 - Beucause you found two, and plus you, it's a three-some.

79 - Because they just started making out on TV.

80 - Because his name is not Manfred (in german) or Evilásio (in portuguese)

81 - Because you're coming home after a long time and he said he's gonna tune your guitar, and you really don't care if it's a |G| or a |D|.

82 - Because they're TWINS. Sophia quote: "I've always wanted twins. [pause] Not kids."

83 - Because his dad is hot and he's halfway through.

84 - Because this is how we roll in The Shire.

85 - Because he's in rumspringa.

86 - Because you just witnessed FIVE weddings in Aleksandrovskiy Park and really need to have some imoral sex out of wedlock.

87 - Because he can make sushi (tell Isabela's twin brother priviet)

88 - Because you have [blank] and you're not afraid to use it.

89 - Because you want a place in hell to be reserved for you.

90 - Because he's not wearing a belt.

91 - Because he speaks welsh and raises sheeps.

92 - Because he's not a rapper

Obviously the russian rapper episode didn't go so well and ended awakwardly

93 - Because he started being an orthodox priest.

94 - Because he's a russian that doesn't smoke.

95 - Because he can toss a pizza.

Tati, did I ever mention your weird english vocabulary for a german?

96 - Because he has more than five piercings. And you just decided you like the number five.

97 - Because even tho he isn't russian he always knows the genitive case plural for substantives

More russian grammar involved. You don't want to know about that, it's been known to drive russian learners to deep depression.

98 - Because he wears a turtle neck (but isn't gay)

99 - Because he's a russian sailor.

100 - Because what happens in Russia, stays in Russia. In Russian.

And must I end it, saying: Because someone's gotta be the man. And yes, girls are mean. And we like it.

Last Quote: "I'm doing this AFS presentation and I'm having a hard time finding sober pictures!", Tati

I miss the german part of me.

RIANNE (eu,ich, ja, I, yo), A COLONIZADORA.

Toda criança normal tem como lembrança normal algum parque ou algo extremamente colorido. A primeira lembrança que eu tenho é de um corredor de hotel, uma janela no fim. Depois... Perguntaram-me em New Jersey se o que eu falava era brasileiro ou espanhol, peguei a bicicleta, achei graça e ralei o joelho - não exatamente nessa ordem, mas nada que me impedisse de ir comprar comida chinesa em caixinha do outro lado da rua, eu sempre kept the creeps quanto à vendedora, ela era alta demais pra uma chinesa.
Foi nessa época que criei um certo trauma em relação a indianos, o acento indiano é um negócio a se discutir - parei de comer dunkin donuts. Era uma máfia, em todo Dunkin Donut e posto de gasolina só se trabalhava indiano.
Admito que só fazia ESL pra perder aula, mas o mundo inteiro precisava sentar em um teatro e ver a cara da Miss Rudek, quando eu, o Hupert (chinês), e a Katrina (mexicana) passamos a ser crianças sem línguas maternas: Havíamos aprendido duas ao mesmo tempo, com um empurr…

Формула хорошего врача

“Не ищите ответов”, - сказал он четко. Однако мне потребовалось несколько лет, чтобы понять эту фразу. Её произнёс профессор Философии и пациент отделения кардиологии. “Умейте задавать себе правильные вопросы”. Я на него смотрела и донца не могла понять смысл сказанного. В тот момент мне хотелось лишь выспаться, но с того дня я «допрашивала» себя чаще: зачем я год за годом, отдаю медицине лучшие годы своей жизни? И так уже шесть лет. Мы скоро, буквально через пару месяцев, будем врачами. Что же мне необходимо, какие профессиональные и человеческие качества я должна развивать, чтобы допустить себя к людям в худший момент их жизни? Оказывается, есть многое за пределами учебников. Задавая себе все время вопросы, я понимаю, что приближаюсь ближе и ближе к ответу. Дифференциальный диагноз, интерпретация анализов, написание истории болезней, правильно собранный анамнез — это те термины, которые мы слышим каждый день, которые мы за шесть лет должны уметь применять в пользу пациента. Дост…

We are chimeras

This journey is over. That was a great chunk of my life. I have rented a garage and left a bunch of stuff behind. I shall come back to retrieve it, but will I want it all back, when I reopen those boxes, will I still need them? So I thought about this, and these are the transcripts of my thoughts:

I first step foot on this land as a teenager who denied the existence of the Home. The world was bound to be the Home, and I knew it, even then. I have always suffered from chronic curiosity.

We felt everything, we knew nothing, we toasted and danced, we slept on couches and had neck-pain the other day. I was present and took part in weddings, police investigations, births, fires, carbon monoxide poisoning and car accidents. I left my appendix here, I ran through the streets of a cold winter to catch an ambulance before they left to help a friend, I didn’t think about slipping on the ice and dying, not a single moment. I developed a nail polish habit, a skin care routine and depression as …
