Basic Disclaimer: I am not a native speaker. I am using these posts as a way of chronicling a semi-auto-didactic process. In other words, this is my way of seeing my own journey. I hope that others learn from it, and I hope that others contribute knowledge to it. To the Nynorsk activists out there, … Continue reading Nynorsk: The Harvest
Tea: Organic Earl Grey Hello, ruminants. I apologise for the last few posts. Life went crazy for a bit. I have been ruminating something for quite awhile, however. Grab a cup, and hopefully we can get back to our normal programming. One can see that I have a dash of European blood. I could … Continue reading Tea Time Ruminations: What is the Point
Tea: London Fog My results came in! Eg fann som eg er finlandsk -- .2% --, og eg er veldig gledeleg! So, let us list a few of my favourite languages for just a quick list (a minute at most). I will talk more about them in a later Tea Time. Remember that they are … Continue reading Nynorsk: Favourite Languages
So, my boyfriend, and I have both been working quite a lot. We needed a date night. It was amazing, but time slipped away from me as I drifted asleep at 2130! I have gotten that old! We went to see The Nun, and it was okay. I am terrified of the demon nun in … Continue reading Tea Time Ruminations: A Wednesday post?
Well, I went shopping for books yesterday, and I am glad. Today I need the pick-me-up of a good book. Books ( bøker) are those which get me through the day; however, presently I will use them only as examples. One will see that two of the three are books of poesi (m), or diktekunst … Continue reading Nynorsk: Books!
Tea: English Breakfast (my favourite) for a very specific reason. Song: A podcast about whom at least/around half of this is. First off, welcome to September: the last few weeks of summer are here. If one is waiting for me to discuss my September books — like Summer — my August reading is unfinished. I … Continue reading Teatime Ruminations:A Semi-Religious One
Nynorsk is quite an intriguing concept. It is the concept that a standard language can be achieved through rigorous linguistic study, and that a people can be united under it. That concept of a culture united intoxicates me. I find myself chasing it in my dreams -- awake, and asleep ones --. The idea that … Continue reading The Life of a Bird: A Musing on Nynorsk
Have you ever worked a job that just drains your energy? Well, boyfriend, and I have been sleeping all day. He has returned to college, and I have returned to full-time work. It does suck in a way. I however seem to get better ideas when I stride the line between fatigue, and functioning, Nynorsk … Continue reading Fatigue, and Tea
I wanted to get back to vocabulary words. I had broth with a poached egg, salt, pepper, garlic, and -- not in the soup -- mineral water: this was my breakfast after work ( I work overnight now); therefore, I present to you: Broth- buljong (m) is from bouillon Egg- egg (n). We actually stole … Continue reading Nynorsk: Breakfast after work
Tea: Lavender. As always it's amazing with honey. Song: I am listening to silence. I just saw Crazy Rich Asians. This made me have a craving for dumplings. Dumplings, by the way, are the best food ever. Every culture has one -- to my knowledge --, because it is bread, meat, and vegetables. What more … Continue reading Tea Time Ruminations: Date Night Rush
