Two things stressing me out right now:
1) Gotta do my taxes on my own this year and deal with full time income & contractor income. I'm giving myself the month of Feb to figure it all out.
2) Need to study for and take the written and practical drivers test here in Iceland. I haven't had to take a driver's test since 1997, so this will be fun. :/
Listing these stressors will hopefully take some of the stress away.

BA in Italianistics, doing an MA in English Linguistics since Fall 2019. Slowly working my way to becoming a researcher. My current interests are #sociolinguistics #phonology #syntax #ConstructionGrammar (and other non-TGG approaches).
When I'm not ranting about web or desktop computing, I toot interesting links, showerthoughts, and increasingly more linguistics stuff.
