Arbitrary Post :)

Because I love them.

That, and the fact that I really don't know what to say at the moment. With a new and ready-to-go Adobe X Pro installed on my computer, I shouldn't be having any more converting issues, now if I can just get my lazily busy college bum on the job. XD

Going home for the 3day weekend~! Sure it's a 5 hour drive (10 roundtrip) but I can handle it. Besides, I can always use the time to study for my Math midterm and Chemistry quiz. Shoot me please |l'OTL

Fun times. I keep telling myself that I will look back on this week and laugh. Probably around December. Yeah...

LyricsTranslate.com seems to have found me a new friend. I only realize in hindsight that she's e-mailed me at least 3 times, but I only replied to the last one. Sure it was in Chinese, but the interface was German and I sorta kinda put it in my "aahhh I'll read it later" list. Cutely enough, she needs help with Spanish so I can do my little bit of linguistic magic there =)

I need to take Chinese as  a class. Probably going to take 1A instead of 1 because I can speak as well as a native but can't read too much. Dx Had a chat with the Chinese 1A professor today and she told me that I'd probably have to wait until next year's fall quarter.... so I'll probably stick to Italian and stash in a Japanese class somewhere in there in the meanwhile.

GOD I NEED FORMAL CLASSES. Self learning doesn't cut it. In fact it bothers meeeeee (TTATT) [coming from the person who provides the powerpoints and worksheets, wow....]

No but it's more of the fact that even with self-learning, you can only learn so much. and THEN there is that freakin' barrier. Like earlier this week we learned an Italian word in context.

FIDANZA: (lit.) engaged

But this word is used to describe just about every couple that's been dating for at least 3 months or so. So if you and your boyfriend are going steady and people use that to describe you..... No, it does NOT mean that you will find a ring on your finger but just the fact that you guys are going pretty steady. Which amuses me because that means (in the spoken word) that you'd be going from one engagement to another if you breakup.

Ahhh, sweet words in cultural context. Yummy.

Hurray for going home! :) That's a fun drive though—just don't die! D:

And yeah, self-teaching can be rather hard. I haven't been able to put as much effort into it as I'd like though, so I'm sure I could do a rather decent job. And I guess it just depends on the person. I have a friend who's teaching herself a number of languages and she's rather good at it.

You know how people ask you that one wish you'd want more than anything? Mine would be to understand, speak, write, and read every language in the world. :) Wouldn't that be AWESOME!?

And that's a cool tidbit about the meaning of the engaged word. I shall store that away in my head. ;)

Best of luck to you with everything! Love ya~! ♥
