i am thinking about deleting my facebook and friendster accounts, actually, because they serve no purpose for me. if anyone wants to find me, they can google me, and they'll be taken to my blog. i'm not anonymous online. but a few months back, i changed my facebook's main language. it's now almost completely in french. my lessons are progressing, although it'll probably take me another year to be even remotely capable of compound sentences. it is very hard to learn a foreign language when there is very little opportunity to use it. so it amazes me no end that i actually understood the updates that facebook provided me. such as "alman et glenn sont maintenant amis." i've been surrounding myself with anything french, from making small requests to my colleagues (who are also studying the language), and to answering calls from my camarades de classe completely in the language. lately, i've began a project at my unit. i've placed post-its on appliances, furniture, bric-a-brac, with their translations in french, as well as the gender, so i would properly say le ventilateur rather than la ventilateur, which is wrong. the gender of nouns in spanish is so much easier to understand and remember. with french, there's no rule. instead, i memorize. it would have been helpful if all french nouns started with a vowel, like l'ordinateur.
and i need to get a massage. haven't had a proper one in a very long time.
