Uno Due Tre Quattro Cinque

Tatiana asked and I obliged. 

1; The number of languages I've learned these past twenty years, is ridiculous. French is my mother tongue. German was the first foreign language I learned. Two years later, I started learning English. I was 14. I also studied Latin for 7 years. And here are the languages I studied at the university: Ancient Greek, Old Norse, Korean, Italian & Sign Language. I also took an online-course to learn Icelandic. I only learned Norwegian when I moved to Oslo. I was 23. And the reason why I learned it so quickly, relies on the fact that I didn't have internet for the first three months. I can spend hours reading about linguistics. Just for fun. Yep, I'm a bit of a nerd. Or a language whore. Or both. 
And yes, I am silently judging you whenever you misspell their, there and there.  

2; I don't like talking on the phone.

3; Beer is the biggest mystery to me. It looks like piss. It doesn't taste any good. I just don't get it.

4; I would love to shave my head once in my life.
Remember Natalie Portman in V for Vendetta? Yeppers, that.

5; I participated in a photo project a year ago and my face ended up on the poster promoting the exhibition. 


  1. Super cool :) I don't like beer either...gross x

  2. I don't like beer, but love it if I mix it with Sprite :)

  3. Yay!! I'm so glad you did this! I can't believe you know all those languages! Good for you! Your English is fantastic so I can only imagine you are just as fluent in all the other ones as well. Also, I totally HATE talking on the phone too. It's like my biggest fear in life that I'll become friends with someone who likes to talk on the phone. It's just so awkward... Thanks for doing this! So fun! xoxo

  4. so many languages. you are amazing!

  5. Ahh, i wish i could speak that many languages but I am also fascinated by reading about them. Would love to learn Icelandic but it looks so hard! x
