You know that feeling when you've learnt a second language forever and then a native speaker mistakes you for a native?
Me: *on phone to Mum about what she wants me to buy for like 5 mins while walking around the store*
Israeli check out guy: You know, I help you?
Me: לא ידעתי מה אמא שלי רצתה אז התקשרתי אליה
Israeli check out guy: מה?!! גדלת בארץ?
+ For those who don’t understand Hebrew this is an ad for coffee. 
The text says
“Elul Elul! Just wake up!”
It’s referring to Jews who take particular care to improve themselves and repent during Elul, before the Yamim Noraim.

So I was speaking to vshavubanim on the phone this morning about Purim
Note: She’s in Israel and we don’t get to talk as often and I miss her a lot
Vshavubanim: So, how was your עד דלא ידע?
Me: It was more of a עד שאני עדיין יודעת
Vshavubanim: Just checking...
I can’t even take Advanced Hebrew at uni

I was planning to drop National Politics to continue Hebrew but 

a) I’m the only student that has expressed interest

b) the course coordinator who teaches the subject is taking a leave of absence

He suggested that I take a subject about modern Israel instead - using the “you don’t do exams only two essays” to draw me in. 

So…to study national politics or Israel? 

Pros of national politics

1. I studied a similar subject last year

2. Did well and enjoyed it

3. This year is an election year so it will be really interesting

4. My timetable fits and is all good

Cons of national politics

1. I might be bored because I studied it last year

2. I’m more interested in international politics that national politics

Pros of Modern Israel course

1. It’s what I do what to learn

2. It’s easy to do well in

Cons of Modern Israel

1. My timetable is already all set - I’ll have to play around with it again

2. I’m not sure if it will count towards a politics major since this is part of a Jewish Civilisation and Israel major

3. I did a course like this two years ago

Advice?

Benny Friedman - Yesh Tikvah - There is hope

English and Hebrew lyrics included in the under bar. 

I’ve heard this song so many times over the past couple of months - people I know just keep playing it! The words are very relevant to us and are truly beautiful.
