Hi everybody! How are you?
First of all, sorry for having been silent for 2 weeks. The reason is simple and trivial: I've been extremely busy. One of my recent projects has actually given me an idea for one of my next blog posts. It's going to be about proofreading. I still need to think it over and, hopefully, you will see it next week.
I am very happy to be so busy now. My daughter's summer vacation starts soon, so it would be nice to earn some extra money now in order to work part-time the rest of the summer and spend as much time with my beautiful daughter as possible!
Besides, we are starting the remodeling in our apartment. Hopefully, we'll be able to finish everything before July 16th. My niece is getting married on July 16th, and according to the Russian tradition the groom has to 'buy out' his bride. The process does involve some money, but the poor groom also has to do a number of funny tasks if he really wants to get married. So, since my niece's parents live on the 1st floor and we live on the 7th, our apartment was chosen as the place where the first stage of the wedding will take place. The higher the bride lives, the funnier it is ;-) And we'll make sure it IS fun!
But the most important news that I'd like to share with you is that the voting time for your favourite language lovers has come!
My Facebook page (join me there!) didn't make it to the voting stage, but I am not upset about it. However, you can vote for my Twitter account! All you need to do is go to this page and vote for @Olenkaarakelyan. Thank you in advance :) I really, really, really appreciate your support! I can see the number of my followers and subscribers growing and it gives me much joy to see so many language professionals among them. Needless to say, I follow my colleagues, too!
However, I don't think it would be honest to finish this post now. Why? Because there are other categories in The Top 100 Language Lovers Competition. You can also visit the links below and vote for your favourite:
The winners will be announced in June! So we won't have to wait long :)
Жаль, что нельзя будет проголосовать за твою страничку на Фейсбуке, но я уже проголосовала за твой аккаунт на Твиттере. Буду стараться регулярно за тебя голосовать! Таня М.
Спасибо за твою поддержку! Насколько я знаю, можно проголосовать только за 1 номинанта в каждой категории, так что не знаю, насколько "регулярно" все это возможно :) Огромное спасибо тебе еще раз!
