I’m back to posting on my Language Practice Blog. I would like to apologize in advance for my horrible translations of the German language. At the very least, I’ve gotten the essen/fressen thing down to memory. I won’t make that mistake again…
My reason for getting back into this is mainly due to the challenge set forth on Instagram for the month of May. A nice person who goes by the handle JoyofLanguages put a challenge out there to be seen using a language diary or be seen speaking/writing the language we’re learning. Since I’m giving German my best effort, I figured I’d join in on the fun. Things like this are better together rather than alone. Plus, there’s a degree of accountability with having to report every day. I’m less likely to slack off if I know someone is watching.
Speaking of…I need to get back on Duolingo. I sense a disturbance in the Force. My ranking is in jeopardy. I’ve awakened the sleeping giants by passing them in XP points and suddenly people who haven’t been on the site in weeks to months are coming back to reclaim their titles. The more the merrier says I.
About the only other thing I’m doing is knitting that blanket still. Thanks to the music of Die Ärzte, I’m a little over fifty percent done with it. I still need to get the remainder finished though, so it is back to the needles tonight and every night until I bind the stitches off. I am so sick of knitting pink acrylic yarn. Under normal circumstances, this is just yarn to me. Right now, in this project, this is a vile abomination. I’m just going to get lost in the music and relax my way to the finish line of this project.
Speaking of the Best Band in the World…I’m making it my mission to get at least one T-shirt of theirs before the end of twelve months. I’m going to scrounge and save every penny I get until I have enough to cover the Cost of Product, International Shipping, and the Customs fees from Germany to here. I love their music that much and I love that I’m picking up more German words as a result of listening to them.
It is currently 86F in my locale. Too warm too soon. I could really do with one of those freak snow storms. Ha ha. Just kidding, people. Relax.
Until the next time, have a safe and fantastic journey around the Sun. Take care, my friends.
