Thanks! I'm trying to focus on being grateful that I have people in my life that I care enough about to be worried/wrapped up in their struggles and also in a position to help. I could go through life with no friends and no family -- I'd have no one to lose and no one to worry about, but I certainly wouldn't choose that path. I think gratitude might be the only cure for fear
Also now I need to learn Romanian. :-/
Started reading a book that's been translated from Romanian. The English title is "cancer, my love". There was a very brief pronunciation guide at the beginning and that's about all it takes for me to be ready to add a new language. I get the letter ș? Yes please.
Really, I've been gently plugging away at all my languages admittedly gravitating toward the mindless activities like Clozemaster, French tv etc. I really want to get more organized with Russian. :-/ I need something external to keep me consistent. I might even be silly enough to try Assimil just because of the built in schedule of it.
Oh and I'm going to gently put in a plug for Like Father on Netflix. You should go watch it
Those who've been reading for log for a while might know why but I'm trying very hard not to make my log too personal since the internet is so searchable.
And on a totally different note, I have a friend who has never left the US. She'll be making her first international voyage this November to Kenya. She'll have a layover in either Frankfurt, London, Amsterdam or Paris -- which she'll find out later, it's not up to her -- and she/we were talking about extending her trip and having a mom's vacation for just a few days, or maybe DH comes too and we do two days with her and two more days alone. So.. London or Paris, I think I'd know what we'd do. What does one do for two days in Amsterdam or Frankfurt?
But there's no sense crying over every mistake. You just keep on trying till you run out of cake.
