Anyways, I've been learning some Greek... well, a lot of Greek. At the moment I'm planning on going to Athens for the following school year on the ERASMUS program with my university, so I gotta know some Greek, right? When in Rome do as the Romans do! There's a myriad of Greek students this year in Wrocław, and as a result I get plenty of practice on a pretty much day-to-day basis. Not to mention my re-watching of practically every Disney and Pixar movie dubbed in Greek which helps a lot. Actually, prior to watching Star Wars Episode VII, I had decided to watch all previous episodes, except with Greek subtitles to practice of course! Before immersing myself in the world of Greek, however, I was learning some Kazakh and a bit of Farsi too at one point, although they failed to hold my interest long enough for me to become significantly proficient in them (sadly). Outside of natural languages, I recently created a new personal language I call "Epistemic", which I then used to write lyrics to Shostakovich's Second Waltz and cover in my (non-professional) singing voice (here). It turned out quite nice to my surprise, and I'm quite satisfied with the language as a whole. Maybe I'll be able to fully utilize it and possibly attain a level of fluency one day? Who knows... My play however is coming along quite nicely; I've written some songs and I'm almost done with the translation. Both the director and the actors seem to be really enjoying it, and I can't wait to see it on stage. I did a dramatic reading of the first 3 scenes with added music and the English translation to get a sense of the play's final form.
Here I am talking about languages and things, yet the winter break has come to an end and I have some essays and studying to be focusing on for the end of the semester! (typical...)
