We no speak americano!

First things first. I added some photos from my trip to Washington D.C. to the gallery. Personally, I don’t think they’re as beautiful as my previous photos, but still I hope you like them :)

I’ve been really good today, because I was working on the text for my English-German Translation Seminar Paper… and you have no idea how time consuming that is :o
I only finished the first page of the story and it took me all afternoon :cry: It’s not like the text is too difficult, not at all, I have no problems understanding it, but understanding it and translating it into a  proper German sentence are two very different things…Sometimes I seriously doubt that German actually is my first language. It’s weird how you can get so much into English that after reading through it you are just not able to construct a grammatically correct German sentence anymore. Thank God I’m not the only one who feels like that *lol* Apparently, all my fellow students feel the same :D
Kind of sad though, while our English might be at a good level, we’re still not perfect and making probably still too many mistakes…and now we’re starting to fail in German too, so we aren’t really good at any language *lol* how depressing… ;)
No, well it’s not that bad, I eventually manage to get my grammar rules sorted, it just slows it down a little because I have to think over everything twice. Oh and choosing the right vocabulary is a pain in the a** I mean, you have several possibilities to choose from and you have to decide which one would fit best into the story…well, not difficult, unless you have a decision-making problem like me :?
Now it looks like I’m not enjoying this at all, when truth is, I actually really like translating. It’s after all why I decided to study English and not something else. But as always I have to nag about it, otherwise I wouldn’t be myself ;)

I also heard some good news today, or maybe they will turn into good news eventually. They tested the noise level at the stadium, which means if it went well, they might get the legal permission to host concerts there…and I’m definitely in favour of that :D
There have been many arguments and discussions about this stadium because of the circumstances under which it had been built. I totally understand that, because they certainly handled things wrong, but I just don’t see the point in building it back after it’s already there. They should just get off their lazy a**** and find a good solution to maintain it.
And the residents in this area should also stop complaining and shut up about it being unbearably loud during events because it just isn’t true…I should know since I live there. They are just slowing down the process… well, maybe they come to a conclusion soon.
Silly having such a stadium and only using it for football games once in a blue moon….I say: LET THERE BE ROCK!! ;)
