In the middle of Neverwhere

И свет, угасая, отрезал безумного мальчика от его тени...
Maybe not exactly in the middle... but I am definitely going deeper to London Below and all those floating markets and stuff. First of all thanks to #neilgaimanweek which took place in Saint-Petersburg. I am literally enchanted by the idea of a floating market as much as creatures who one might meet there. Sadly, despite the fact that a place for the party was perfectly chosen, we must admit, that those who made my day evening were those who could do that in any place and in any time. So on the one hand, I considered this event as a nice way to touch Neil Gaiman's world... but that hardly happened... I think the point was the scale of the project... not big enough, not ambicious enough. But I do hope it was just a start...

I wish I did my best to catch the air of the event... at least to draw it from my own imagination. But I failed. So, I would not mind getting some help from those who hosted the event. Partly because I came there for that, didn't I?

Quid pro quo

И свет, угасая, отрезал безумного мальчика от его тени...
This is how Autumn grants wishes... and I am glad even if all magic comes with a price.

1. Yesterday I was ponderind how wonderful it could be if today they postponed our lesson at the language school. The reason was simple - I'm not sure that I'll be able to attend my dance class on Sunday and I'd hate missing a whole week. Today in the morning I've got a message that was the following: 'Unfortunately, your class is postponed. As for your Monday class - we will let you know later.' My price - is my salary, which at that very moment got a bit smaller (can't believe that's even possible...). But that meant I could have a dance class today. Learning instead teaching. And besides I don't have to worry about Sunday.

2. Another subject for a pity could take place on Thursday. Because the time of my job interview coincided with the time of a lecture on Southern Gothic Literature as a genre and its representatives. it was supposed to take place at the British Book Centre. Though it was my fault that I completely forgot about this lecture when I appointed time for my interview. Anyway, it seemed I had to say goodbye to Anne Rice, Tennessee Williams, Stephen King, and others writers. But the second news that came today proclaimed that the lecture had been cancelled. So I need neither rearrange the time of the interview ( what's obviously unprofessional) nor regret about my unusual absent-mindedness.

That eagerness which I had got to make things go this way is as surprising as obvious the price I paid for them going this way.

6. Have returned to reading 'How to teach English'. It's interesting to see that many ideas that the book describes were given us when I studied at our University in Rostov. Though probably in some different way, probably some foci differed but all the same. Now I'm going through chapter 5 and I can't say that I'm coming across anything totally new. That means that I have an idea more or less what teaching is (probably I don't know some concepts, terms and methods but I use them without thinking). That's somehow connected with my teachers from different language schools I attended. Because since the very beggining of my urge to languages I've paid attention how they gave information. But I am interested in finishing this book to be aware of terms and concepts, to understand the essence of the methods. To speak the language teachers of the English language use. For example "ESA lesson sequence". That divides the lesson into an Engage part, a Study part and an Activate part. That's quite a natural divisioin... but when you know that as an approach that provides your teaching with some system and structure. I'll try to keep on reading, come what may.

38. Finally I somehow enjoyed freestyle waltzing coz we were given some patterns and opportunity to practice them. So freestyle is stopping to be so terryfing ....like 'what I am suppose to do, how I suppose to react... let me go'. Sometimes I was able to predict my partner's actions and answer to them just in time. That appeared to be quite possible. But you have to be very attentive and careful. A funny thing: How does a lady understand that it's time to do an inside turn? When a gentleman raises his left hand up. Like a Pavlov's dog. Can't get rig of this very image.

1. From what I've got from the plot of 'American Psyho' I have to admit that a film is not worse than a book. The book contains too many details that copy each other, moreover, it slurs the character's development. To my liking it lacks contemplating. It lacks grounds. Though their absence is likely to mean something as well. As for the film. This time the lack of screen time did good. They have to reach the scenes to house as much infomation given in the book as possible. So it results in a number bright pieces forged together. That made dynamics. Especially I appreciated how Patrick's views on some music bands were presented. In the film they are adressed to other characters not to a reader/viewer. That shows the difference between Patrick and other people, what they focus on.

1. Не так давно обсуждали с Г., что даже активную физическую деятельность можно рассматривать как форму медитации. Потому что ее тренировки (и мои танцы) обладают этими самыми определяющими для медитации характеристиками: сосредоточенность, концентрация, повторяемость элементов, ритмичность, музыкальное сопровождение. К тому же, все эффективно помогает переключиться от бытовых проблем (как бы тривиально это не звучало). Я действительно на полтора часа выпадаю из жизни. На очень приятные полтора часа

2. Решила все-таки попробовать сдавать немецкий на уровень B1. Завтра-послезавтра разберусь с оплатой и прочей бюрократией. Надеюсь там места еще есть, хотя особого ажиотажа вокруг не заметила. Если все сложится, то будет почти неделя на подготовку. Понимаю, что не самое удобное время - это максимально удобное время по сравнению с другими вариантами. Хочется верить, что результаты будут удовлетворительными.

А пока прошла тест на сайте Гете Института, который как оказалось не дает никакого представления об уровне языка не дает:
