Well, this year is about over. I can't say I got as much done with language learning as I wanted when the year began, but then again, I had a lot going on:
1. Drew the epilogue for my comic, Concerning Rosamond Grey, and thus concluded the comic.
2. Graduated with my second undergraduate degree, in medical laboratory science.
3. Got a job in Boston and moved across the country.
4. Lost said job, and am currently looking for another in the Boston area.
I guess two big accomplishments for me have been my grades in my second semester (my lowest grade was a B-) and moving to Boston. I had wondered if I could
across the country, and if I could adjust to a new culture and learn to like it. I did have culture shock, and sometimes I still note things that are done differently than back in Idaho, but I have grown to like Boston. In fact, if someone told me to leave Boston and go back West, I would be seriously depressed. I absolutely love
the access to native speakers of so many different languages, and of course, their food.
Last week I visited a Japanese church, and while the pastor and his wife are fluent English speakers, most of the time the sermon and subsequent conversation was in Japanese. The attendees were very hospitable to me, and a couple helped me with my beginning Japanese.
I have met up with my Quebec tutor twice now, and my French pronunciation is improving.
Probably for the next year, I'll make a new log. I feel like I've wandered around with my language studies on this one, and I would like to be *focused* for the next one, and for the next year. I'll also post my resources on the first post.
