Conversations in English language.

Post autor: marchewkowy »

Hi there,

As I used to speak and write in that language quite a bit, but now haven't got any chances to practice, right the movies, but that is just one way, not even near to a conversation.
Would like to find someone just to bounce some sentences against.

Happy to speak with anyone either on the forum or via private messages.

Go to ang.pl and find some people there. There are plenty of fucking idiots wanting to learn this stupid language this way. Some time ago I used it and left my contact details there. Now, from time to time, someone asks me via Skype or GG to talk with them. I hate it.

I'm not saying this is a bad method, on the contrary - it's great.

PS. Don't hesitate to contact me by private messages. I really don't bite. I'm only having a bad day today. A bad night I would say. Another sleepless night... That's why.

I don't like Skype, or GG, or any other proprietary software, when I wrote speak I had in my mind write here or private messages.

I find easy to learn from tv series, quite easy to catch up with some character, they tend to have same way of speaking. Can watch it couple of times till I get every word they say.

Btw that was the way I started to learn this language, only when I was confident enough then I started to read/write.

If it is not a secret what kind of job do you do?
There are plenty of different kinds of this language, all of them use bit different vocabulary.

PS. Good way to learn is not to use translators, use dictionary instead, this way you will remember words. Don't use copy 'n paste, writing over will help as well.

Thank you for advice. I'm "working student C++". I'm going to be a developer :) Now it's begining of my career :) I have one question, maybe two :) If I'll go to the doctor, because I need some medications, then I'll get L4? That was first question. What are you doing in your free time? That was second question :)

If that's the case my advice wasn't really necessery, I think.

Don't know what kind of creazy regulations there are right now, better to ask someone else.
About doctors, I went to doctor in 2010, had this problem with piece of metal shrapnel or whatever the name for it is. One like you make while grindig or cutting with angle grinder, couldn't get it out myself, so I had no papers for insurance on me, who think about that in this type of situation.
So today I have this paper from local court saying I have to pay them about 200zł and extra 100 for basicaly their decision. It is not for me being not insured the paper clearly says it is for not haveing prove of insurance on me while at hospital, not for not being insured. I have two ways of dealing with it, one is to pay, second one is to appeal and rise costs of "court case", still taking risk of loosing.

Don't know what kind of drugs they are on, but it has to be strong stuff.

Whant my constitutional right to health care, but the thing is I do not believe they know what constitution is. I think it is article 68 #1 #2 #3 but is there a point in fighting with crooks like them?

What do I do, most of the time I just take care of my garden and fish pond. Today was quite busy day, had to replace filtering system, new pump, new primary filters, new main pressure filter, new pipes, new UV lamp. Work like a charm, but couldn't manage to properly mount it in new place, too tired with cutting, heating pipes to fit them on filters. What is left is to drill holes in big rock, which I found to be best place to fit primary filters, dig hole and hide main filter.
Fishes got bit crazy about all the changes, don't thing they like someone entering their space and fitting new hoses, removing old ones. Hope they won't get too scared and wont stick their asses in places they can't go back, ending up as dead fishes.

My father said, that doctor has to give me L4. So I'll say my menager, that next day I will not come to work, and then I'll give him L4. You have very pleasant activity in your free time. What kind of work do you do?

Right now I enjoy being unemployed if it come to work related to earn money. This doesn't mean I do nothing, I do my best to keep myself as occupied as it is possible. The example of things I do you already know :)
Like to work in garden, doing some home repairs, I'm kind of one who will not let some strange person or some company do things I can make myself.

Yes, that kind of activity is very enjoyable and knowing you are surrounded of things you make with your own hands give you that good feel, it takes your problems away. Especially when you tend to be hyperactive person with too many ideas too many thoughts, not only good ones if you know what I mean ;)

Besides I'm difficult person to work with, and too nervous to deal with all that red tape stuff to do my own business. If I have a choice between being a almost rich slave for some ridiculously rich boss or to be free but poor person I definitely choose the latter. Though couple of years ago my way of life was quite opposite, but it was making me sick in literal way.

So I found myself occupation which bring me peace and keep me away from having too many cares, at least I just care for things that are important to me, not to someone wanting to get rich of my work.

Yeah, it is very important to do something you like to do in life, isn't it?

The thing is that we learn new things all the time, our point of view changes on the way. But that's the reason life don't get boring. At least that is the case with me, never to stop looking for new way of interacting with reality. Unfortunatelly lately I don't meet lot people who still remember that life is just a ride...

Do you have any idea? :D

It has something to do with moon phases, and moon calendar, better to ask someone who has knowledge of buddhist calendar, they should be able to answer with better accuracy.

Fortnight means two weeks, dark fortnight refers to two weeks starting just after new moon, so eight day would be first day of waxing gibbous, just after first quarter. But I'm not sure about all of that, like I said better to ask someone with knowledge of buddhist calendar.

Thank for your answer. :)
Actually it's from the Hinduism website. Unfortunately I don't know no-one's who have knowledge of Eastern calendar.

So it has to be something about some holiday, once every 4 weeks. Is there any name for this holiday? It could be easier to look for the name, go to wiki put that name over there might give some clues.

If I had to guess I would say it could be about celebration of new life, as waxing gibbous is the phase of moon when it goes from half to full moon:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lunar_phase
it can be something about bad-good as it goes from dark to light - light winning over dark, or something about clearing, purification.
But again I do not have knowledge about that, all of that comes from my imagination, can have nothing to do with reality.

BTW. Look at average moonrise and moonset at this phase, that could give you some clues as well.

This hasn't any connection with Hindu holiday. It's a term for specific time when occult powers are the most powerful. 8)

Like I said, I was just guessing. Could you explain what kind of occult, and is it described as something good or bad?
Personally I'm interested in moon, as it has some connection to the world of plants and animals. That's why I connected moon phases with the term "dark fortnight".

This kind of occult powers derived from Kali. She is very helpful and powerful for her followers. With each of every kind occult powers you can do bad or good things (apparently ;) )

Name Kali comes from "kāla" which means black. Goddes of time, death and destruction. Nothing good can be done with that kind of power, even though it can appear as something good for those who don't pay attention.

Kali the first creation before the first light, sounds like satan in our culture.
Often depicted with sabre in one of her four hands, decapitated head in another, next hand is holding tray under the head and the last one is wide open facing the viewer. That doesn't look any good to me.

Wouldn't advice anyone to take help from that kind of "helpful" character.

Seems to me like the open hand is telling, come on I will help, the one with sabre will decapitate me, next one will keep my head to herself, and the one with tray will collect anyting which is dripping of my head.

Kali is the most misunderstood of the Hindu goddesses. By not understanding it is easy to misinterpret her iconography. In the same way one could say that Christianity is a religion of death and cannibalism in witch the practitioners drink the blood and eat flesh of Jesus.

Kali comes from the Sanskrit word 'Kal' - time.

It is correct to say Kali is a goddess of death, but she brings the death of the Ego and the illusory view of reality.
Kali wears a garland of skulls and a skirt of dismembered arms because the Ego arises out of identification with the body. We are beigns of spirit and not flesh.
The black skin represents the womb from which all of creation arises and into witch all of creation will dissolve.
