June has come and gone and it’s bizarre to think we’re already halfway through 2021. This last year and a half has been such a bizarre experience in general, with the ebb and flow of the spread of COVID changing so much of the status quo for everyone. My own personal journey through all this … Continue reading Thinking About Where to Go from Here
As we slide into June, this blog has slowly and quietly entered year four. I started it back at the end of May/beginning of June in 2018 as an experiment of sorts, tracking my time and effort spent on language learning, going over the stuff that has worked for me and the stuff that hasn’t, … Continue reading Entering Year Four of Blogging
So as we go into May, at the top of the month I thought I’d revisit a topic I’ve covered before, but one that I think naturally lends itself to evolution over time, and that’s answering the question: “I want to learn a new language, where do I get started?” I’m of course not particularly … Continue reading Language Learning: Where to Start
(This blog is the English translation of this week’s primary blog, which was originally written in Spanish.) This week has been strange. Well, just a little bit, and I don't know why I feel that way. There were a lot of normal things, I worked on Monday like a normal day, and studied most of … Continue reading The Big Wait
(This blog entry is written in Spanish. There will be an English translation available tomorrow morning / Este blog está escrito en español. Habrá una traducción de inglés disponible mañana por la mañana.) Esta semana ha sido extraña. Bueno, solo un poco, y no sé por qué me siento así. Había muchas cosas normales, trabajaba … Continue reading La Gran Espera
After 2020 lingered on like the smell of a dead animal, it’s amazing how much 2021 seems to be sprinting by. Part of it for me is definitely just a renewed focus on other stuff, as I’ve been busy and productive throughout this year in ways not related to my day job doing stuff like … Continue reading Revisiting the Yearly Theme for 2021
(This blog is the English translation of this week’s primary blog, which was originally written in Spanish.) These weeks have been a bit difficult to be honest. Right now I’m trying to obtain financial licenses for my job, so my schedule is different. I usually work from eleven to eight, but I have to work … Continue reading It’s March, What’s There to Say?
(This blog entry is written in Spanish. There will be an English translation available tomorrow morning / Este blog está escrito en español. Habrá una traducción de inglés disponible mañana por la mañana.) Estas semanas han sido un poco difíciles para ser sincera. Ahora estoy tratando de obtener unas licencias financieras para mi trabajo, así … Continue reading Es Marzo, ¿qué se Puede Decir?
Here we are in March, and I can hardly believe it. February is of course on the wimpy side as far as month lengths go, but it still counts, and this year continues to go by at a much more expected rate than 2020 did for me. Part of me thinks that’s a direct effect … Continue reading A Monkey Wrench in the Status Quo
(This blog is the English translation of this week’s primary blog, which was originally written in Spanish.) Happy Valentine's Day, I guess. I can hardly believe it, but a month and a half of the year has already passed. After 2020, the flow of time feels strange, sometimes too fast and sometimes too slow. So … Continue reading Did You Have a Good Valentine’s Day?
