I enjoy it very much. It's fun to learn and speak, it helps that I have had a very enthusiastic and good teacher these last 2 years.

Remember though; when in Germany; "don't mention the war" ~ please tell me you have seen faulty towers.

Hillarious episode of the British comedy where Basil Faulty who runs a hotel gets a concussion while there are some German tourists in there and makes consistently funny references to the war out of turn while insisting that nobody "mentions the war". It is a really, really, really funny show.

The same old, supermarket work; it pays reasonably enough, I already did two years of it in high school and I can get the shifts to work around my uni commitments.

Ahhh I see. Unfortunately we don't really get good British TV shows here. Occasionally some good older ones come on PBS.

Basil then proceeds to mention the war at every opportunity, upsetting the German guests more and more as he rapidly descends into a fit of xenophobic ranting about everything and everyone that most Germans would rather forget.

When the fed up German asks Basil to stop going on about the war, Basil kindly reminds him that they started it. “We did not start it,” protests the German. “Yes you did, you invaded Poland”, replies Basil!

I can just picture how it all plays out. Gotta love British comedies.

Yeah; I just had to feed a cat.

My cat was on deaths door not three days ago, wouldn't eat, vomited when he did, skin and bones and would meow in pain like mad if touched. Took him to the vet, and now he is on a course of anti-biotics, is eating; I have to go to the butchers to buy him real meat to get his weight back up, and I have to give him antibiotics twice a day. Lucky cat.
