and was surprised that the test they gave me wasn't easy shmeasy. I mean, I know my hebrew's not great, but I can hold a conversation. I did fine on the assessment (they were testing for what level we were on). But when the teacher told us that this test was on the level of those who finished Ulpan Aleph, well I kind of lost my smugness. I thought it looked like a level gimmel at least. Oh well. In a couple of days I'll find out what level they assigned me to. I'm glad to finally be starting ulpan. It will lend some structure to my days.
On a totally different topic, let me see a show of hands from all those of you who have thrown out tiny little pieces of paper that were left on the table, in the bathroom, on the floor, crumpled up, with perhaps a few digits and/or letters scrawled on it, only to find out that this piece of what-looked-like-garbage housed an extremely critical piece of information that is now lost forever and will profoundly affect our lives. Huh? Huh?
On another totally different topic, let me introduce to a new feature I am adding tonight: the blogroll. It should be to your right. These are other blogs I read. Some of them are so entertaining, brilliantly witty and just plain fun. Others are more poignant. Many of these blogs write about their aliyah experiences, all so similar yet so diffent. Once again, click and go. But remember, they do become addictive, and may even make you want to start your own blog. (And thanks to bec for helping me figure out how to set up the blogroll....)
