Post in english. :>  
Washing is done, and now I can go enjoy my 5-6 hours of sleep.

I have an interview tomorrow at 2 pm.

Ta!

I *knew* if I hung in there for a year or more you'd eventually post something in English! :)

good luck on the job interview!

Yep. All this waiting paid off! :-)
Hillaehillae on August 22nd, 2007 01:27 pm (UTC)
yeah! Good Luck ;)
Стихийный Эйсид и Пиченька Судьбыxnrrn on August 22nd, 2007 05:27 pm (UTC)
Hehe, thx.

Aw, I feel so privileged. ;-)

Hope the interview went well!
Стихийный Эйсид и Пиченька Судьбыxnrrn on August 23rd, 2007 07:13 am (UTC)
It did, but neither me, nor everyone else are sure if Im gonna work there or not. Although I do have a blessing of their previous admin. :>
Touch of Greytouchofgrey on August 24th, 2007 02:44 pm (UTC)
Good luck with it! :-)
Стихийный Эйсид и Пиченька Судьбыxnrrn on August 24th, 2007 08:14 pm (UTC)
Well, Im in apart from talk with upper management about TeH MonieZ and whatnot.

Bad thing, is even while I feel I'd like being there, Im not sure I want to stay in IT. :>

HOWEVER, this type of thing counts as special circumstances.
Touch of Greytouchofgrey on August 24th, 2007 08:18 pm (UTC)
Special circumstances? As in, the place you want to work is special, or it's special in that you REALLY need a job? :-)
Стихийный Эйсид и Пиченька Судьбыxnrrn on August 24th, 2007 08:48 pm (UTC)
Place is real special (or more like REAL special. Or even _REAL_ special). I will give details once Im sure I work there, or not work there. :>
Touch of Greytouchofgrey on August 24th, 2007 08:53 pm (UTC)
In English? ;-)
Стихийный Эйсид и Пиченька Судьбыxnrrn on August 24th, 2007 08:56 pm (UTC)
Yup. Or at least in english too.
Touch of Greytouchofgrey on August 24th, 2007 08:58 pm (UTC)
Nah, I want you writing EXCLUSIVELY in English from now on. :-p
Стихийный Эйсид и Пиченька Судьбыxnrrn on August 24th, 2007 09:20 pm (UTC)
Writing MOSTLY in english is possible.
EXCLUSIVELY is not. :-p
Touch of Greytouchofgrey on August 24th, 2007 09:26 pm (UTC)
I'd settle for sometimes. ;-)

Do most people in Russia speak English?
Стихийный Эйсид и Пиченька Судьбыxnrrn on August 24th, 2007 09:40 pm (UTC)
Trick question.

I'd say AFAIK most people in Russia learn english (or german, or maybe chineese for places that are closer to china, but I wouldn't bet on that).

But for SPEAKING english, that would be negative. A lot can understand and grunt apologetically and wave hands and transfer meaning, but with a lot of effort.

Some can speak with horrible accent, and a lot of misunderstandings beyound basic concepts.

Even less can speak without misunderstandings, but still. :>
English -is- a usefull skill to have in Russia. Quite a bit of demand for it.

English + French + German = WIN as far as job prospects are concerned. Too bad I don't remember either German or French. (and I studied them, too)
Touch of Greytouchofgrey on August 24th, 2007 09:47 pm (UTC)
So do you speak English as well as you write it? I'd honestly never know that you weren't a native speaker!
Стихийный Эйсид и Пиченька Судьбыxnrrn on August 25th, 2007 05:40 am (UTC)
I have a slight accent. If I were visiting US or UK you'd never know after me staying a week or so. It goes away with that much practice. Well, not just practice, but also exposure to native speakers.

And yeah I speak English as well as I write it. :-)
Too bad that my french and german are FAR behind my english. Mostly to disuse, but also because I was stupid not to make much effort to learn them while in school.
Touch of Greytouchofgrey on August 25th, 2007 03:11 pm (UTC)
So what made you decide to learn English so well? I would assume in Russia you're mostly just speaking Russian, aren't you?
Стихийный Эйсид и Пиченька Судьбыxnrrn on August 25th, 2007 04:41 pm (UTC)
Yep. Well, I have no idea. I am learning english since I was five years old.
Стихийный Эйсид и Пиченька Судьбыxnrrn on August 24th, 2007 09:42 pm (UTC)
Another news:
off to bed. Have to go visit work tomorrow, to get the sacred knowledge of technical process from the previous admin.

Not much of work, but still, have to get up early.
Catch you later.
Touch of Greytouchofgrey on August 24th, 2007 09:46 pm (UTC)
Yuck, on a Saturday?
Стихийный Эйсид и Пиченька Судьбыxnrrn on August 25th, 2007 05:39 am (UTC)
Meh, it has to do with the fact that the admin in question works at some other place and only has time for sharing the sacred details on technology and whatnot on his offdays (namely saturday).

Also, see, the place is special, so he's just as willing to do that as I am willing to go learn.
Touch of Greytouchofgrey on August 25th, 2007 03:10 pm (UTC)
What, an amusement park? *LOL*
Стихийный Эйсид и Пиченька Судьбыxnrrn on August 25th, 2007 04:42 pm (UTC)
Almost as amusing, but...
Better.
Touch of Greytouchofgrey on August 25th, 2007 09:49 pm (UTC)
You will explain at some point, I hope? Now you've REALLY got me curious!
Стихийный Эйсид и Пиченька Судьбыxnrrn on August 26th, 2007 08:34 am (UTC)
I will post, after I talk with high ups about officially being in, and how much Im going to get paid. :>
