Thinking in German.

One interesting thing I've noticed about working totally in German is that I get used to doing pretty much everything (except for coding) in German. What this means is that I've actually slipped into thinking in German whilst working.

The past few days I've noticed that the couple of rare events where I've had to speak english, it's been a bit difficult switching back. Not horribly difficult, but it's taken a minute or so to shift gears.

Back at home, where I deal with many things in English, it's not so much a problem. Go figure.

We went to a curling class on Friday, I'll have to write something up about that in the near future....

It's funny you say that...

I've spoken Finnish and English for pretty much my entire life. My Finnish is no longer fluent, but it's definitely beyond conversational and I have to say that I NEVER think in Finnish. For example, when I'm speaking in Finnish and I have to add something up in my head, I'm always doing it in English. Strange.
