I could die for all I care. Haven't had my usual forty winks for some time now... and now I have to clean up the whole apartment and cook a dinned for two (my sis came for the weekend). And then I have to learn shitloads of stuff about phonetics... consonants and how they are articulated, and where. So, speech organs, yeah. All that labial/alveolar/glottal etc. stuff. Why in God's name do I have to know that? I want to be a translator, not an actress or something.

Oh, and my descriptive grammar professor told me that knowing stuff like this will help me find job in the UK or US. Yeah, she even gave us examples. Like her former student who is (or was, don't remember) a waitress.

So remember, kids: want to find a sucky job abroad? Learn Queen's English.

Not like I have something against it, it is orgasm-inducing when someone speaks QE, but forcing poor Polish students to learn such stuff is like... man, I do not even know what to compare it to... trying to teach a monkey how to play Chopin on a piano. Yeah, something like that. Ever heard Polish-English? It's quite funny :3

My head hurts. It must be the new cabin-cleaning stuff. Ugh, m'gonna puke.
