So, that brings me to the formal introduction of my newest summer goal: to teach myself Spanish. I figure I am tired of wasting money on college courses only to be quizzed, tested, and stressed out. I feel like I don't really get much out of them anyways since I cram the night before an exam and forget half the stuff as I walk out of the classroom. So, if I study for myself and study because I want to, I think I will have a bit more success.
I'm serious about this!!!! I know a decent amount of Spanish already, but what I need is focus and practice. This past Friday night I proved my focus to myself when I did nothing but sit in my room and write out Spanish flashcards. I then proceeded to go to the public library yesterday and I may or may not have checked out a couple of children's English-Spanish picture dictionaries. Best decision of my life.
It may be a bit loser-ish...but I'm stoked about it. Hopefully someday I will be able to pose as a Latina and find myself a fancy little Latino lover...pah. A girl can dream, right?!
And maybe someday I can wear this proudly......?
