Farming in Germany!!!

Alright! I have a confession to make! I have a seriously "one-track" mind. (Not the kind of "one-track" that men have though!)

I have been like this since I was a little kid. I do things in "fits". When I get involved in something, I give ALL of myself to it, and I find it very difficult to divert my attention to something else at that time! And right now, my entire attention is focused on my new Hobby -- Farming -- and my German Language Course.

Today, we had our very first test in this course. And guess what! I scored 49.5 out of 50 in this test! :D It turns out that I broke all past records in the Institute. My Teacher tells me that nobody has scored so high on any of her tests till now! :D

One of her old students, who is currently doing the Second Level of the course, took this test again with us, because he's preparing to give the International Certification Exam conducted by Max Mueller Bhavan (or Goethe-Institut, as it is known internationally)... and he scored a 46! :D

So you know now why I have been away from this space for so long! Of course, FarmVille also has a big hand in this! Here's what my Farm looks like now...



As you can see, it's not the whole Farm... it's just a close up of one small section of my Farm. You can see my Farm House there, and the Workshop next to it, and the blue Tool Shed at the corner. You can also see all those beautiful Swans that were once-upon-a-time really ugly ducklings! You can see some more ugly ducklings too in fact, next to the second pond in the picture. Oh and you can also see the sparkling new Hot-Air Balloon that was on a special Weekend-Promotion... on sale for just 10 coins! Makes the Farm look so much more cheerful, doesn't it? I had to sell-off 2 of my carts though, to make room for it on my Farm! :p

Well, this German Course will be done before Diwali, as our Teacher is leaving for Germany right after Diwali, and won't be back till end of December! And hopefully, my fit of farming will also be over by then! These days I seem to work on 2-lane tracks apparently! When I was studying for my PGDBA exams, I was full-fledged into blogging too simultaneously! And with the Java Certification preparation, I was more into playing Mahjong in my "breaks"! German seems to have paired up with FarmVille I guess!

Anyways, I'll try to get regular here again as soon as I can. Until then... miss me! :D
Cheers to all of you!

S B Tamare:
Thank you for your kind words. I'm glad you were able to relate to any part of this blog! :)

According to Swami Vivekananda... there is no such thing as 'talent'. It is only a 'mark' of our previous births...

Hence... you were a true blue german in your previous birth aka 'avatar'... QED! ;)

Kaddu said...

Roshmi:
Oh Wow! That's a nice thought! So I guess I'm only revising it all right now then? Hmmm! I wonder if I was a real German Farmer in any of my previous births then!

Roshmi Sinha said...

Absolutely!!! And you lived right next door... to Einstein! ;)

Kaddu said...

Roshmi:
LOL! He was born in 1879, and I was born in 1978. Just 2 digits interchange their place! :D :p He he!

Awesome lady!! First of all Many Congratulations on breaking all records! YaaaaY! Go ahead and farm in Germany with all your farmville and Max Muller Bhavan Insti effect! I'll give you a free supply of organic pesticides, and you in turn shall give me organic veggies.. :D Deal?

Kaddu said...

Sandhya:
Ha ha ha! Deal! :D

Roshmi Sinha said...

QED... again!!!

Neha said...

Kaddu said...

Roshmi:
Ha ha! Ok ok! I got it! I was a German in some previous birth, and I apparently have some connection with Einstein! :D

Kaddu said...

Neha:

Kaddu said...

Soin:
Whosoever wants to play Mafia Wars, can play Mafia Wars.

Whosoever wants to play FarmVille, can play FarmVille.

Whosoever wants to watch porn, can watch porn.

Whosoever wants to watch Ekta Kapoor's mega soap operas, can watch them.

Whosoever wants to watch 11 players going after one ball, can watch that.

Whosoever wants to watch all the morbid things happening around in the world, can watch the news.

It's a free world buddy! We're all free to do whatever we want! Cheers! :D

Neha said...

ok, i will keep sulking till see meself thr... :((((((((

Shobhit said...

Hey, you'd let me spend my holidays at your farmhouse,... won't you ?? :D Ok Ok. I promise to work at the workshop for free. I'll also sow the seeds. And I'll even feed the animals. :)

My... that really looks like an ideal place to spend all the free time one's got on his or her hands. That's my favorite setting. To be one with nature with lots of animals around... Sighhhh....

avdi said...

I cant farm. No mafia wars either. Maybe because I am not learning any foreign languages.

Anutations said...

Kaddu,

Way to go, gal! 49.5 on a 50 is brilliant. Also, I can see that u are making rapid strives in ur career as a farmer.... *The hot air balloon is the USP ok?* Weekend promotion? Women somehow always know of the best deals anywhere on earth! :P

@Reply to Soin,

Tee-hee! :D

Cheers,

Anu

"I was a German in some previous birth, and I apparently have some connection with Einstein!"

?????????????

'Some previous birth'... ???? Naaaaa!!!!

In your birth prior to the current one... you were a german who had Einstein for a neighbour... Got it... ??!!

Hence, you're scoring so highly in that 'foreign' language while simultaneously doing several other courses!!!

Dazediva said...

You are hilarious ! So now you are a reborn German Farmer with a hot air balloon ?? Why is that even on a farm or is that part of the service :P

But seriously - you have a pretty looking farm .. I'm not a part of farmville - don't want to be either but good farm baby hehehe

Oh and I took German classes yeaaaars ago .. Guten Nacht :)

Kaddu said...

Neha:
Next pic mein pukka u'll be there! :D

Shobhit:
Seriously! Although I wouldn't like it to be so crowded in real! :p

avdi:
Wow! What logic! Ha ha ha!

Kaddu said...

Anu:
Arre that hot-air balloon... I thought it was just going to be a decoration on the farm, but other farmers actually thought they were going to get some heavy bonus out of it in some way! And I just found out that many people even sold off their trees and animals to make space for the balloons! Apparently 1 guy bought 300 of them! And it's all gone to waste eventually, because they turned out to be just decorations after all!

Kaddu said...

Roshmi:
Ha ha! Ok ok lady! Got it! In my last birth, I was a German living next door to Einstein! LOL! Because of your "Albert Einstein" funda, I even ended up playing some dame called "Alberta" in our little 2-min skit we did in German today, at the instt.! :D

Kaddu said...

Dazediva:
I have no idea yaar! And it even has a black sheep sitting in the basket! Maybe it's meant to be used in place of a helicopter, for spraying fertilizers or something you know... from the air!

Oh and all credit for my rebirth goes to Roshmi! LOL!

You should see the Villa they have on sale in the FarmVille Market... it's gorgeous! And it's also very expensive! 1,500,000 bucks! I only have a Farm House at the moment! Need to earn a LOTTTTTTT of money before I can buy that Villa!

Ok so do u remember more of German? I really cud do with some practice.

Roshmi Sinha said...

See!!! More 'coincidences'... to 'reinforce' it...! QED

Kaddu said...

Roshmi:
:D

sobhit said...
