Recent events + some blogs I recommend

Wow, I can't believe it's almost September already. September has always been a very special month for me: its the start of a new academic year in Russia, so besides New Year resolutions I often make September resolutions. This past month has been full of events. That's what I love about life most of all: it is full of surprises, and even if you have lived a hundred years you can't say you know it completely, because everything can change in a blink of an eye.

I have met several new good clients and I hope our collaboration will be long-lasting and very, very fruitful. I was very glad to get messages and new projects from my "old" clients. Some have even found me in FB, and I am so glad they did!

This past week has been particularly busy, full of big decisions and therefore intense emotions.
I am also continuing the process of learning more, because this is one of the keys to becoming and staying an excellent professional.

Those are some of the blogs I regularly read and gladly recommend:
I learn a lot of things from them. Hope you enjoy them, too.

Have a wonderful weekend! See you soon! =)

"Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm."
Sir Winston Churchill If Sir Winston Churchill was right, then I should be very successful. We all make tons of mistakes. And I am not an exception. My mistakes nowadays may not be as big as they were at the beginning of my freelance career, but I still make them and do my best to learn from them. I also watch others make mistakes and I do my best to learn from them, too.

So here's the list of major mistakes in freelance business I made since 2007. Hope it helps other colleagues to learn and grow. And you are welcome to share the mistakes you made, so we can all learn from one another!

10 interesting facts about the Russian language

In my previous post I promised to follow with the  interesting info about some other languages. So here are 10 facts about the Russian language which might be of interest to those who are studying it. If you would like to have this list in Russian, please contact me and I will send it to you by email. So, what do I find interesting about my native language?

1. Russian has about 500,000 words, but only 2,000-2,500 of them are used frequently. 100 most frequently used words make 20% of all written and oral speech. A high school graduate's vocabulary usually has 1,500 to 4,000 words. Those who have graduated from a higher educational institution normally have a richer vocabulary consisting of approximately 8,000 words.
2. It's compulsory for all astronauts in the international space station to learn Russian, so we can call it an international language of space :)
