German and Gibberish sound peculiarly similar

Okay, I’d been reliably informed(by friends, enemies, classmates, cousins, distant cousins, parents and teachers) that learning a foreign language was never a cakewalk. I kind of reached the epitome of that today… I’ve been learning German for five years now… they teach it to us at school. Being an Indian, and having had NO exposure to the language before, I was pretty proud of myself before for being able to say “I study in 10thGrade” in German before.(its “Jetze bin ich in zehnte Klasse”.) Now I’d enrolled for this really cool exam for German, Fit in Deutsch, which is like a university degree; meaning I can post it on my resumé today itself, and it’ll be recognized by other universities and companies. I thought it’d be pretty normal.How wrong can you get in life? We were doing the hearing skills today and our teacher puts on the recording in her laptop, and we all go “WHAT THE HELL?!” I mean, no inkling whatsoever of what the person was ranting on about! We were first staring open mouthed at the teacher, then each other, and then the damned laptop. I thought I’d caught a few words here and there but that was unfortunately it. And the exam is in like, 20 DAYS… I’m screwed aren’t I?

Women and Shoes : A Long, long Story

Cinderella was proof that shoes can change a woman’s life. While the rest of the world reels under recessions, the shoe market soars in these tough times. So one does wonder whats up with these ladies and their shoes… Adding six inches to you’re original height don’t do you bad you know. And for Asians, who in general, tend to be short (and no, I’m not being stereotypical. I’m merely stating a fact) its a blessing. Stilettos in general just tend to look so… good. And its not just Jimmy Choo at work here, heels carry a historical significance as well. Earlier, those who did manual labor wore flat, practical footwear, while the rich and wealthy wore high heels. Yes, buying a pair of heels always has had a super natural effect on women. And science provides us with the perfect answer : We are wired for shoe appeal even when our wallets are light. Shop On!!
