Election Day

November 7, 2006

 For the first time in my adult life (I’m 31), I voted today.  There’s really nothing special about it, other than that I’m proud of myself for doing it.  I almost chickened out, as I had to drive past the intersection where my fiance was killed in a car accident in January, but I didn’t.

On the language front, I’ve been continuing with MT Italian, and am working on CD 8 and LB1 right now.  I’ve been thinking that I’d like to run through MT Spanish, as a review, but I feel like I’m doing well with my Italian and I don’t want to spread myself too thin.    I have also been flirting with other languages, just to hear what they sound like – mostly listening to the first lesson or two of the Pimsleur series in a number of languages I’m interested in learning at some point like Chinese, Japanese and Swahili.

I’ve found a gentleman in Spain who collects  language learning books, and i s interested in trading for anything he does not have.  You can check out the thread at isohunt’s forum about trading language learning materials.

I will be adding a number of links to language blogs & other websites of interest for language learners in the next few weeks.
