And I am ridiculously giddy about it.
No, not that kind of past. I'm the one who got my clearance in 2.5 months...that should tell you a lot about my actual past.
Which is to say I am pretty boring!
No, what I mean is that we now have a past tense in language.
Unlike many languages, future tense is really pretty easy in Estonian. Because there isn't one. You just use the present tense and add a time in the future. As in, "I am reading tomorrow."
For past tense, we have been using present perfect. But now, we can use a real past.
I'm a nerd...it makes me really happy to say "I was" instead of "I have been"!
