About Sofi Kokos
It’s morning. Euro is stealing up
slowly. It jumps to my bed. Approached to my head, it starts to play a morning
hymn, using her squeaking toy. So, my crazy day is just getting started.
Breakfast with the whole family
charges me with cheerfulness and good mood for all day, because there are my
dearest, closest people, my family around me. Now for me they are my purport of
life and all that I do, I do to make my parents glad. Sometimes I have to
sacrifice my interests for my sister, but I’m sure that if she were me, she
would behave the same.
Often I’m too busy in university
and spend little time at home. But I’m sure, my family waits for me and they
are always joyful to see me. Home is the place, where I always hurry to return.
My life consists not only of
family gladness and worry but also of funny and wild student life. Oh, how I
I am a fan of languages. That’s
why I entered the linguistics and I didn’t make mistake. I have a calling for
linguistics. After graduating I want to continue my research work and I’m going
to enter the postgraduate course.
As if you know, linguistics, it’s
enormous and each its schools are very interesting, unusual, and breathtaking.
You also can imagine what a difficult choice I should make: what do I wish to
devote my life to? Maybe I would like to connect my life with applied
linguistics, maybe with ethnolinguistics or maybe psycholinguistics is the most
amazing. I don’t know yet, but the time will show.
I’m a person, who is easy to
inflame to risky adventure deals and acts, stir with enthusiasm. But if I get
down to business I will carry to completion.
Evidently therefore I become
attached to social activities in our university. I worship students’ soviet and
students’ labor union committee becomes a window to town’s active social life.
Every day we organize, create, decide, discuss, and, of course, respect opinion
of each other. We became real friends, a real united company. Every day I get acquainted with new people,
try myself in new (totally unexpected for me) activities. Generally, I can say that
I improve myself and inspire my soul by this fact. Thanks them I start to have
faith in myself. They show me that I can do my best, I shouldn’t doubt myself,
I should only try, dare and then I would be a winner.
But to tell in confidence, that’s
not all, what I’m occupied with. For me it’s not enough to be a good student
and indefatigable activist, I need something for pleasure.
This something became dance.
Practically I came to the first lesson of German collective recently and I have
already become an immediate participant. On the lessons I feel me wonderfully
as if I find myself in euphoria: I forget about problems, route deals and
troubles, and move gracefully to the music. Participants of the collective are
friendly, sociable, helpful and are fond of dancing. Apropos, not every of them
has German pedigree, but they are keen on German culture. I suppose that maybe
we will go to a dance festival. I’m looking forward to this event.
Of course, it would be great if
we would be invited to Germany. It would be interesting for me not only as for
dancer, but also as for linguist. Because you know, what a linguist doesn’t
dream to go abroad! I’m not an exception. I desire to have a world tour. But I
don’t want only move from one country to another. I wish to stay at country for
feeling the atmosphere of their culture, learning new and useful, understanding
their world-view, taking in their mood. That will be incredibly splendid! I
hope that my dream will come true.
To over my story about me I would
like with the following words said by Henry Fielding: "Happy is the man, who
considers himself happy”. I think that I’m the happiest person. Do you consider
