  1. One little personal announcement: I've passed my CPE exam that I made a status update about many moons ago. So my English level as of now is C2.

    219/230 points = Grade B, also one goddamn point short of an A.

    Regardless, I'm cool with this. :]

     

    I didn't get the real badass official CERTIFICATE yet, though. I'm not sure when am I supposed to get it.

      Did you think I'd leave you folks alone voluntarily? No such luck.

  2. Colloquial Greeting Commonly Used In Informal Occasions WHAT'S Risen Above The Horizon? 

    Pronoun Referring To The Speaker AM BACK IN CASE YOU HAVEN'T Become Aware

  4. Amazing bit of English language knowledge discovered during preparations for my exam: "Incidentally" = "By the way".

    Vocabulary broadened by 20%.

     

    Incidentally, before learning the word's actual meaning, I would always mix it up with "coincidentally", which has a completely different meaning.

  5. FYI I've somehow made your pic with the snake my background in my browser's speed dial. I dunno how did I do it or how to change it, so I'll have to stick with it.

     

    ...I feel like you should know that. :P

      Hey there! A lot has been going on in recent months so I haven't had as much time as I'd like to spend on stuff like this. Everything has been slowing down quite a bit now so I'll be able to check in more often. Thanks for checking up on me, great to hear from you again!

  8. Taking the Cambridge Proficiency Exam (that's C2 level) on the 10th of March. The speaking part of it is on the 11th -- my birthday! 

    If I do pass it, I'll have a certificate that will allow me to teach English or something, and that's apparently gonna be a handy source of income when I go to uni. Nice birthday present eh???

     

    Anyway, this exam comprises things that are actually quite difficult (but definitely possible). 

     

    E.g. you have to KNOW and be able to use all those obscure and uncommon English constructions. I'm having quite a struggle with the inverted stuff a-la "Little did I know" in particular. I mean ffs who speaks like that??? aah damn!

     

    Also, punctuation. Sweet Jesus Christ almighty. That's what I get for neglecting it in my internet posting, someone might say (and he'd be right ayy lmao), but English doesn't seem to have very definite rules for this kind of stuff. Words like "which" can be used in constructions that both include a comma and do not, for instance.

     

    Moreover, the various forms of essays (e.g. proposal, review, report OH MY GOD) are damn hard as well. There's a particular structure of your work that should be honoured (Introduction --> point 1 --> point 2 --> conclusion, that kind of stuff), also stylistic things such as vocabulary, and that's tedious to remember. Don't forget to memorise all the linking words as well!

     

    TAKING ALL OF THE AFOREMENTIONED INTO CONSIDERATION wish me luck, right??? This is gonna be so fun!!

      May the rng be with you,but you dont really need it right? :D

      Edit: lol the typo XD

  9. Almost a month since I started wearing braces and that gum-like thing, the teeth do "feel" a bit different. Yay!

    Also I've gotten used to having a long piece of metal wire in my mouth. The ends of it get stuck in my cheeks sometimes but it's bearable.

      I hated when the wires tangled to my inner skin.

      ^ * writes down the handy word "tangled" *

  10. Question for the oldfags:

    So what's the story behind a peculiar file named timeline.jpg? What does it depict?? I see that linking to it on the old forum resulted in an auto-replace to "I AM A MORON" repeated several times, so it must've been something gruesome hahaha.

      W-what? I am seriously disappointed. It's... an actual timeline.

      Why was it so controversial then? Other than the mention of a "Black Jesus", hahaha.

  11. Badass username yo

      Still, he'll gain some extra time from this, perhaps he can clean up his forum a bit because I just looked over there and WOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW

      What did he get banned for, specifically?

    4. Gothic

      Gothic

      My guess is that he tried to summon the elder ones, and got caught before he succeded.

  13. I wish I had as much free time as you do. Jesus holy Christ almighty, that's some savage arguing skillz0rz.

      Change your DW password to something long and annoying to type in, so that the annoyance of logging in is slightly stronger than the compulsive urge to check DW.  Then log out.

       

      Or better yet, for more layers, change your password to the answer to a puzzle.  maybe use software to generate the answer, or an encrypted version of the answer, but just copy and paste the answer, without memorizing it, into your new password box.

       

      Or, I bet there's some browser plugin that just locks websites for you for a certain amount of time, i dunno.

      ps. I just googled and found this: StayFocusd plugin I only skimmed the description but it sounds like what you're looking for (i never used it).  As long as you aren't finding yourself the urge to uninstall the plugin after you start the timer to circumvent the whole thing, then you're fine.  But I wouldn't want to put that idea into your head so I probably shouldn't mention it.

  16. Yo, where have you been? I wondered what happened to you.

      hahaha, its weird to think it was that long. Lot changed from that time, got a new partner (<3) moved and such, but I should be more alive now, well alive as in not being dead for a year.

      It does, I like to believe I can make better wads now, ooh my first follower, I'm not so much of a loner now.

  17. So today I found out that Lil Pump has songs other than Gucci Gang, but they are all just a single collocation repeated like 70 times, and also most of them last for < 02:15, haha. So catchy!

    This dude has truly succeeded in life if you ask me

  18. So now I also have to wear this gum (similar to the ones that boxers wear) in my mouth for an hour a day, and after some time I'll also start wearing it overnight.

    I really hope that the sexy corrected teeth that I'll have in a few years will be worth all this torture ayy lmao

  19. Arrrgh due to the braces I'm unable to chew normally, hell yeah, so I just kinda "pull" food with my teeth so fun

    Also flossing teeth with braces is the single most difficult process ever invented by humanity

    The next 1,5 yrs will be fun, I sense it

  20. I've got braces now ayy lmao so am i officially a nerd now ehhehehe

  21. It's so annoying when your country uses a QWERTZ keyboard layout and you try subconsciously to log on as "byyrak" all the time

  22. Is, like, anything even mildly entertaining happening around here lately?
