The internship is fun if exhausting! My field is environmental science. I work in the local municipality, helping out with what I can on the sustainability department. I've mostly helped produce statistics for the greenhouse gas emissions. The goal is to curb the municipality's impact on the climate change.
They quickly noticed I was really good with Excel, so I've been doing that a lot xD The work feels good because it feels meaningful to me.
Anyways, I've been stressed out this weekend due to pressure to work o.o I've started to come to terms with the fact that I'm going to have to file for disability due to my PTSD o.o Life's odd sometimes.
Ah xP I like history and geography. Sweden's history is very bloody which might surprise those who just knows of modern Sweden. We fought Denmark, Russia, Poland and Preussia (Germany sorta) a lot xP
Cool that you started with sign language because you liked it :3 It helps to have that kind of enthusiasm :3
I see a sign interpreted at my intership workplace on Mondays, when the municipality head brags about things for people working there during the weekly coffee break xD He has an interpreter. It's cool.
I know a little xD It's a purple state, so democrats and republicans are kinda even there.
It's an original state and it donated the area that today constitutes West Virginia.
I also believe it was a major battleground state in the US civil war razz
Ah, nods. I don't have a geneaology account active atm (it costs a little) but there's some free time during Easter so if you got name, date of birth (and preferily location they came from) I can check them out and send you some pics of the church logs :3
Oh cool! I learned the Swedish hand alphabet as a kid but I've forgotten most of it. I never got to use it because I don't know anyone to use it with. Do you have family or friends who are hearing impaired? Apparently the guy in the video hears fine but both his parents are both deaf :3
Ah, Virginia :3 I know most US states but am worse with the cities.
Yeah Minnesota was common for Swedes to move to biggrin Still they must've emigrated late? I think most emigrated around 1880-1910ish.
There's a lot of material available if you wanna do geneaology on your Swedish ancestors some day xD
I did manage to find an ancestor moving here from Norway in 1790 xD So I'm 1/256 Norwegian razz
I've been ill the last few days, bad cold and stressed out really xP Are you getting easter break now? :3
Btw, you had an ASL song on your profile :3 A guy in my local town made national (even to some extent international) news recently for his song sign interpretation, check him out if you like: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=19P91F6_wcM (Sadly he signs Swedish sign language, but he's still good o.o My fav song in that medley is 2 minutes in, the one I'd say he does the best is 5 minutes in.)
