What great categories right? These are probably my two favorite things in the world.
We’ll start with language learning. Learning foreign languages has always interested me and for a better portion of my early life I got my enjoyment out of learning one specific phrase into a multitude of languages. My favorite was the phrase “I’m hungry” in which to this day I can probably still say in about 5 different languages. I chose this phrase because I would say it to my friends in the class that I had before lunch period.
This of course, doesn’t allow you to learn any languages fluently or even to a usable, conversational level. From there I got more serious about my language learning goal (someday becoming a polyglot), but we’ll cover that more in future posts.
Traveling has also been something that I have always been interested in and I was lucky enough to have a family that was able to go on vacations (from camping to beach-side hotels) at least once a year. This allowed me to establish at least a decent list of states (and other countries) that I had been to by the time I was 18. From there, I’ve been to 2 continents, 6 countries, 1 British territory, 1 Canadian province, and 22 U.S. states, plus the District of Columbia.
Don’t be surprised if this section is eventually written in my target language. (That’s why I had the translation widget installed on the right side).
Current target language: French
My goals for this section are:
- start thinking in French
- start having conversations (even with myself) in “Franglish”
- prepare an itinerary for my upcoming road trip to Montréal, ON, Canada
