Lost in Translation

This morning Arttu woke me up again since I couldn't drag myself out of bed ha ha ha...Not long after that, he laughed and said to me that I made lots of noises last night. He told me that I had snored and farted a few times at the same time during the night. He tried touching me to make me move so that I'd stop snoring. Gladly I did stop snoring once he managed to make me move my position HI HI HI HI...I still CANNOT believe that I snored AND farted at the same time!!! Unbelievable!!!

Today went well. I got plenty of practise again, but I couldn't take a nap even though I'm SO tired. I guess I should just go to sleep early again. Last night I went to be already at around 10.30 pm. Maybe I snored since I was so tired???? Hmmmhhh...I don't snore a lot, though. Well, at least not that I know of HA HA HA HA HA HA...Nobody had ever told me that I snored back in Indo. I don't know if it has something to do with the fact that the air here is so dry or not. Just weird. I used to sleep in the same room as my brother for years, but he never told me that I snored in my sleep (he's an early bird, unlike sleepyhead me).

Oh homework today, but Finnish words and phrases are swimming in my head. It's been like that ever since the course started. Whenever I try to sleep, my brain keeps on repeating the lessons today or what I heard today.

One funny thing about being in an international class is that it's easy to get lost in translation ha ha ha ha ha...I had lunch in the kitchen with the French guy and the Thai girl. Both of them don't speak English fluently. The French guy speaks Finnish pretty well since he had lived in Helsinki for 3 years. When we were talking, sometimes I had to translate what the Thai girl meant to the French guy. My grey brain cells definitely have been working quite diligently these past few days ha ha ha...

Being in an international class also means that you've gotta be good at guessing and reading body languages. Even if you can't understand every single word that someone utters, you need to be able to read between the lines and just take a (sometimes wild) guess.
VERY interesting, challenging, and fun!!! I can't wait to learn more things from the teacher and from my classmates.

One thing for sure, though, if I don't get enough sleep, I'll be in HUGE trouble since I need to REALLY concentrate on listening to either my teacher or my classmates who don't speak much English or who speak more Finnish than English. So I'll still be a sleepyhead no matter what HA HA HA HA HA HA...

Side note: I know what Arttu's going to say if he read my last paragraph. He'll say, "Excuses, excuses..." LOL!!!


  1. I snore when I have a cold, but hopefully I don't fart ;-)

  2. LOL!!! Look at it this way... you werent awake to smell it...LOL!!!!!

  3. Fish: Ah, interesting!!! Snoring when you have a cold, eh? ;-D

    Michelle: HUA HA HA HA HA HA...Yes, you're SO right! ;-D

  4. ^_^;; it's happen to me also if TOO tired, my hubby said i was snored. But thanks GOD it is not usually habits hi hi hi hi...

    I can see that you have difficult to wake up early ^____^ but when you have child later. You have to wake very early and sometimes also in the middle of night. Because baby must drink milk every 4 hours hua ha ha haha...

    I can not wait to read your first experience with ur baby later :D

  5. Sounds like you're well tuned.

  6. ach jul...don't tell about the baby yet to amel hihi....

    my hubby said I snored also, but i don't think so..:)

  7. Yeah, if I'm too exhausted, I'll let out a heavy breathing while sleeping. Sometimes, I do realize it, but hard to control hi hi hi...

    Well, your class is getting fun everyday. I'm happy for you, buddy. ;)

  8. time not happen again, Jeanne hua ha ha ha...

  9. Buddy,

    One thing I am sure now. You are really good at multi-tasking - Sleeping, Snoring, Farting!!!

  10. Hi Amel

    Hopefully not such a noisy nights sleep tonight?!

    Sounds like your course is really getting those brain cells working! I admire you. Languages is not my strong point. I speak basic French but that's about it I'm afraid.

  11. Hi Amel,
    My husband does not understand what my mom and I speak(when we speak our language)but he says that people may think that we are fighting because of our tone !But we are not!!

    The World According to Me: Hubby said I was snoring loudly again last night LOL!!!

    Ahhh...I don't know if language is my forte or not, but I like learning a new one, esp. since I HAVE to ha ha ha ha ha...;-D

    Frasypoo: OHHHHHH...interesting!!! But yeah, sometimes people misunderstand, esp. when they don't speak the language. ;-D
