ah yes back to normal…high and in bed
I went to new south wales to see my family :—) where did you go?
I am flying home to melbZ thank goodness gracious me
I got my full license. now I can have a beer AND drive. what a time to be alive
i usually blush, laugh and say “I wouldn’t say that but i can maintain a basic conversation.”
truly an angel
a new mantra: it is not enough to say that you are — you must be.
i think it’s definitely worth it. it’s just difficult. it’s not the structure or the tutorials or anything, it’s just difficult to get your brain to adopt a different grammar system. it’s hard work to unlearn everything you know about a language. you need to almost become a newborn again. the best way to learn is immersion, which i will do once i am in a position to.
very much. for french, there are only 4 contact hours a week, the rest is left up to us individually and it moves very quickly. i have been learning for two years now and the thing that i struggle with most is vocabulary. i would not say that i can read fluently, though i can understand (most of) the grammar and glean, if not the full meaning, a general meaning from most sentences. i could probably read it but it would take me a long time.

i am back in my hometown. interactions so far have been filled with conversation about a friend of my sister’s who died last week. it’s affected most of the people i know but everyone’s in the same boat so it’s nice to know people will help my family if something happens and i can’t be here. my mum has the healthiest mind. the way she speaks of my sister and i (half of her children who have moved out) is so … healthy. she is not sad for herself, only excited for us. i hope i adopt this attitude fully one day soon. this is the way i think it should be, but it’s not the same in action all the time. now i will eat and drink and be merry for a week
