TOTU: Chapter Five

My Spanish lessons have gotten real again.

I've been learning Spanish online for the past six months, and the process has gone reasonably well. I do my lessons on here, watch movies on HBO Latino, watch DVDs on the Spanish option, and chop it up on occasion with my friends who speak Spanish. For the most part, all has gone well.

It's amazing how easy it was to learn English just from being around it as a child. Learning another language as an adult is possible, but it's very challenging. I'm gonna stick with it, though. Quitting is not an option.

I've taken more Ls recently than I remember. Part of me laughs them off, but you never take chances thinking that your effort won't pay off. A lot of it is on me, though. Due to my situation, I feel handicapped about doing certain things, which comes off as a lack of effort or inconsistency. People gotta do what they gotta do to look out for number one, and I get it. However, it takes two to tango, and at times, it seems like one person is doing more dancing than the other.

It looks like things are brewing, in regards to my current situation, and if they're brewing the way all the indicators are showing, I'll be moving around very soon. I'm ready to do so. The challenges that lie ahead are beyond exciting. Plus, it helps that the energy in this area is all positive, and if there is negative energy, I just haven't seen it, or it's minimal.

There are times when it takes a change of scenery to leave certain people and situations behind. No need to say it aloud to 'em, especially if the effort's been there all this time to make something shake and it hasn't gotten me anywhere. The thing left to do is not say anything else, and just go.
