Scientific Research & Self-Development Activism
I went on holliday to Krakow this week so i thought it might be appropriate to learn some Polish.
I had three days to learn polish before i went, and it was a good idea too. Most of the people i met knew english, but when going outside of the tourist-track it feels better to be able to explain what you want instead of waving your hands around pointing at stuff.
I managed to learn enough to keep myself well fed, but i won`t have any prolonged discussions about global politics in polish anytime soon.
Aside from that, i got myself a book by stephen hawking about quantum mechanics to read during flights and such. Without overstating my knowledge about quantum mechanics, i can fairly say i have a better understanding of what it is.
Now, as a goal for the four days left of this week i will finnish the book (i haven`t read it through yet:/).
