Things that make me happy

Remember my last post about relaxing? Well, my body got so angry with me working too much that it decided to teach me a lesson. I fell sick with some nasty virus... twice. 3 weeks of virtually zero-level productivity. Terrible. If you don't want to end up in the same situation, please take some rest when you are busy!
But my sickness also made me remember something very important. Little things that I really love. As I was reflecting on those things I was amazed at how easy it is actually to be a happy person. And then I thought that I would love to share them with you. Maybe they will make you happy, too...

1) I love it when I don't have to set an alarm clock to wake up early in the morning;
2) I love going outside in the middle of a busy day and buying something. It doesn't really matter whether it's some candy or a new nail polish, anything can work :)
3) I love tea: my Twitter friends have already noticed me talking about strong black one, but I also love herbal tea, that's the one I'm having right now =)


4) I love watching my daughter play and talking with her. She's the most sincere and wise person I know. And she also has a wonderful sense of humor.
5) We have a small budgie at home, and I love watching him play. We call him a gangster because that's who he really is :)
6) I often have my tea in the kitchen, and that's when I love watching the violets on our window sill. Aren't they beautiful?


7) I also love looking out of the window and watching the nature and people... even if its winter in the middle of April... again... :)


8) I love going for walks with my fam;
9) I love it when my ESL students get the best marks at school and then call me to share the news;
10) I love it when my clients say they liked my work. I feel so happy then! =)

What little things make you happy?

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 :)
