It’s been a whirlwind these last two weeks, but I’ve tried to fit in Spanish whenever possible.
As I mentioned in the last post, I had relatives visiting from the 4th-9th December, so I didn’t really study then (though I managed to keep my streak up on memrise! I only messed that up this past weekend…). The rest of that week I spent trying to catch up on lesson planning and everything else that had been neglected; and then last weekend I went to visit friends. So this time hasn’t been as productive as it could have been so far.
However, I’m not letting it bother me. I guess a part of me didn’t really think about how busy December is as a month, but I’d rather have started this on the 1st December and be a month in by the time the new year rolls around than be starting on the 1st January, having done nothing in December. I guess for this month, my main goal is going to have to be to ease myself back into Spanish by doing what I can, when I can. It’s a good goal and I’m not going to pressure myself about it.
The pressure can be ramped up after Christmas. 😉
But yeah, I just thought I’d check in. I also have started using a new resource – Glossika – so I’m going to see how that goes. Having things on my iPod is a lot easier due to the fact that I’m commuting four days a week, so I think that’s going to be my main focus for now.
We’re halfway through December already. How is everyone doing? Getting ready to wrap up for the end of 2014? Let me know! 🙂
