How To Learn A New Language At Home
I've been trying to improve my French recently, and came across these awesome YouTubers called DamonandJo. They have self-taught themselves nearly 6 languages! I believe they speak French, Spanish, Portugese, Italian, German, and of course English! You can either watch the video above (which I suggest cause they have the BEST sense of humor) or check out their tips below: 1. Follow Famous YouTubers in the language you want to learn! There are tons of youtubers in other languages, and often if they are famous enough, there will be english subtitles. Listen to them to hear real people speaking the language rather than a text book! They're usually super entertaining too so it helps :) 2. Follow those YouTubers or famous people on twitter so you see that language each day! The easiest way to get used to a foreign language is to see it all the time and this really helps! 3. Change your phone/facebook/etc language to your desired language! Since you probably already know where everything is in your phone or facebook, you wont be confused and you'll learn a ton of new vocab! 4. Listen to audio books in the language you want!!! Audible has a ton of foreign language books. Try starting with a book you already know well (like Harry Potter for me - I'm trying to read that in Korean right now...) and listen throughout your day! 5. Sign up for foreign magazines or newsletters! Or even better download their app in another language! For example, my boyfriend gets push notification from Le Monde which is a french newspaper :) Even if you only read the headline, its practice. 6. Try cooking a meal using a recipe in a different language! You start to learn that a lot of words you actually already know (for example, sauté means the same thing in french and in korean bokkeum (like bokkeumbap) means fried! so literally "fried rice!" 7. Watch TV shows in the language Duh!!!! 8. Talk to yourself and dont be afraid! Practice speaking whenever you can, even to people who are strangers! be brave! What languages are you trying to learn?!
Remember the French Press?
I have been travelling lately for work. I was in Hamburg for a few months and I shared an apartment with a roommate. To my absolute delight, when I first arrived in Hamburg I discovered that my roommate had a decent coffee maker in the kitchen. I am a light traveller and I hadn't even packed light coffee gear such as an Aeropress. I had planned to sort out my coffee situation when I was settled in and so I was over the moon when I realized that I didn't need to. To my utter dismay, my roommate moved out after a month or two, taking her coffee maker with her. "Oh", I heard myself say when I saw her packing up the coffee machine, "I forgot you would be taking that with you. Now I have to think of a new way of brewing coffee in the morning!" "What about that French Press?" she replied. What? The dusty old appliance I had all but forgotten the name of, it had been so long since I used one, was sitting on a shelf, unnoticed. I had almost completly forgotten that French Press brewing is a totally legitimate way of making coffee. In fact, several coffee shops where I used to work actually used to serve French Press coffee as their only hand brewed coffee option, and it was delicious. https://coffee-brewing-methods.com/how-to-use-a-french-press-coffee-maker/ So what was my problem with the French Press? The main memories I have of the French Press (known as a Cafetière in my neck of the woods) are from my parent's home, where they would brew a pot of French press coffee every morning that was thick as mud and and intensely caffeinated. I also remember a friend of mine telling me knowingly that you are supposed to add an extra spoon of ground coffee for every person who is partaking in said coffee drinking experience. Needless to say, the French Press wasn't associated with artisan, speciality coffee when I was growing up. In fact, the French Press is an amazing, unique and extremely affordable way of brewing extremely delicious coffee in your home, if you apply the same principles of coffee brewing that are used for other types of coffee preparation such as pourover or espresso brewing. French Press coffee has wonderful tasting notes that are impossible to extract with other methods of coffee making. Due to the lack of a fine filter and the extended time that the ground coffee has with the water, the French Press yields rich, full and complex flavors. This type of coffee contains compounds from the coffee oils such as cafestol and kawehol that are absent from drip coffee but which totally change the taste and coffee drinking experience. These compounds have also been shown to be anti-inflammatory, anti-tumorigenic and to have many other health benefits. So why was the French Press coffee I grew up with so variable? Well, the catch is that French Press brewing requires the same care and attention that other coffee brewing methods do, using freshly ground coffee ground to the appropriate course grind for French Press, an appropriate ratio of coffee to water, correct water temperature and a monitored brewing time. After my roommate left I started using the French Press every day and experimenting with recipes and different beans. I experienced a complete French Press renaissance and still find myself completely obsessed with it, long after I have moved on from Hamburg and regained access to my coffee gear at home. So here is my coffee challenge for the day: I am willing to bet that most people have a French Press lying around the house somewhere. Dust that bad boy off and rediscover its wonders. If you have never experienced the taste sensations of well brewed and properly extracted French Press coffee, you are in for a treat!
Drama - A Historical Romance
If you love your historical romance novels and Kissasian Asian drama, you could already be keen on length drama; however, if this is not the case, then allow me to introduce to this charming form of leisure. Period Drama - Movies "I love you, continually have. I need to marry you," confesses William Wallace (Mel Gibson) to his sweetheart, Murron. Braveheart struck achievement, with its kilted madmen, demure heroines, Scottish royalty, unleashed savagery and the heart-wrenching subject of love and freedom. Story-tellers always have re-hashed memories of the past, and filmmakers are not any unique. Why would not they latch onto those suitable ready-made tales? Lives of royals inclusive of King Arthur, Henry VIII, Queen Elizabeth and Queen Victoria have just the right elements to set the display screen alight; controversy, love, loss of life, marriage, lust, opulence, poverty and tyranny. Period Drama - Series Adaptations of English Literature and the BBC move hand in hand. Classic novels; of which there has been a rich wide variety in the nineteenth century make for exciting viewing. Romance and social evaluations shape a winning combination. From the shy to the saucy, wicked to the brave, weird to the smart; there is a colourful kaleidoscope of excellent characters. Painted with meticulous care by way of such terrific authors like Jane Austen, Charles Dickens, Elizabeth Gaskell, the Bronte sisters, Daniel Defoe and William Thackeray; too many to mention! Getting to recognise these characters is a fun affair. Watching the naughty deeds of Moll Flanders and Becky Sharpe (Vanity Fair) is pretty mind-blowing. At the same time, in the different arena, of morality and desirable grace, sweet Molly Gibson (Wives and Daughters) and Esther Summerson (Bleak House) take the cake! Women with intelligence, wit and flair, dogged through the constraints of their intercourse but attempting their darndest to stay actual to themselves and make the excellent in their state of affairs. We cheer them along as we take an experience down memory lane; bonnets, petticoats, knickerbockers and the like. Rolling hills, tumbledown mansions, grandeur, poverty and urbanisation, are just the right medicinal drug for those craving their historic romance hit! Drama Is Comedy! "Humor helps us to suppose out of the box. The ordinary toddler laughs about four hundred instances in step with day, and the average adult laughs most uncomplicated 15 cases according to today. What occurred to the alternative 385 laughs? Anonymous Ever get sucked into speaking to someone who is a drama queen? They have the burden of the sector on their shoulders, not anything ever works out, and s-t usually happens to them? In discussing New Year's dreams, a pal these days advised me that one in every one of his thoughts for 2011 is to no longer be a drama magnet. I permit him to realize that that specialize in not having something is similar to having it. You will entice the very aspect you want much less of! You need to cognizance, especially on what you do want. E.G., you do not see awareness about dropping weight. Your recognition of reaching your ideal weight. You do not cognizance on no more extended drinking. Your knowledge of staying sober. There is a flip side to the whole thing. And you always have a desire which aspect you want to play. Are you tired of Asian drama? Flip it! What is on the turn facet of theatre? Comedy! Watching a traditional George Carlin set, or a Jim Carrey movie, or a Chris Rock special never fails to position the entirety in attitude for me. Something magical happens in our brains and our bodies while we giggle: endorphins are launched. Otherwise, anxiety and pressure collect and toxify your whole mechanism. No, our problems do now not disappear; however, we, without a doubt attain a healthy detachment and for this reason, a brisker attitude on them.If you love your historical romance novels and Kissasian Asian drama, you could already be keen on length drama; however, if this is not the case, then allow me to introduce to this charming form of leisure.

The Christmas Latte to Rule Them All
I've talked about this cafe before, and I'll talk about it again. All That Sweets is hands down my favorite dessert cafe on Earth. Watch my video review here or read below^^ Today I went alone so I passed on a slice of the strawberry shortcake but look how adorable is it! Their cakes are always light and creamy, though the flavors change daily! I've seen chocolate, vanilla, and even kiwi cakes. Instead I opted for one of their amazing macarons. Because I came late in the day, my only option was the chocolate raspberry "merry xmas" heart macaron, but I probably would have chosen that anyway. These flavors also vary with the season but every single one I've ever tried has been absolutely delicious. But of course, the star of the show is my Christmas Tree Latte <3 Their lattes are amazingly intricate, and they have a dozen of them on the menu at all times. The homemade (delicious) whipped cream is covered in melted chocolate, sprinkles, and meringue cookies. I seriously thought I hated meringue until I tried these babies. Now I can't get enough! They sell these for the month of December, and then usually move on to make snowflake or other winter themed lattes. All year 'round they offer rose, raincloud, and even coral styled lattes! This year they also introduced a gingerbread man latte that I was tempted to get, but I had to stick to my traditional tree :) You can also find me here: Tumblr Instagram Twitter Facebook SnapChat: cari.cakez
