Hey everyone! So I’m currently at the end of a nice (well-deserved, if I do say so myself!) long week off work—and though I didn’t hit all of my goals this past week, I did manage some, as well as giving myself some time to relax.
Although I had a productive week and all, I still need to look into scaling those goals back a little more this week. I’m going back to work and there are lots of events coming up (birthdays, etc.) so I know I’m not going to have as much free time. I don’t want to put a lot of pressure on myself to get a million things done in each language, either, because that’s just going to not make it fun—and it being fun is kind of the point at this stage.

Hi, all! It’s been a couple of weeks since I’ve been back here, though I’ve been posting my goals still over on my log on the language learner’s forum. (I’ve been late with them there, too, sadly.) It’s been a busy time but I’ve now got about a week off work so I’m hoping to get back on top of everything.

Hey guys! Can you believe it’s almost May already? I thought the earlier months were going by quick, but April seems to have vanished, which means it’s now less than six weeks until I leave Austria, boo!
Still, there are some fun things to look forward to: including all the language challenges that are starting tomorrow! Now, I did say the other day that sometimes challenges stress me out, but one of these is my favourite and it’s long-term, so it’s pretty low-key. Plus, by May the first rush of the new year is over and everyone’s starting to give up on their resolutions – so I think a challenge can be a nice boost to keep you motivated.
So without further ado, here are the challenges beginning in May 2016!

Wow, it’s been a while, huh? So I meant to post this just as the challenge ended, but life (and Christmas) got a little in the way. How was the holiday for everyone, too? I know we’ve still got a few days until 2016, so hopefully some of you at least are still managing to relax and can go into the new year feeling a little chill.
But anyway, here’s my (short-ish) reflection on how I feel this 6WC went and what my future plans are for Slovak!

Hi guys! Well, it’s been a while, hasn’t it? Sorry about that. I got caught up in visits and stuff – which means I haven’t studied as much as I even thought I might, but it’s been a fun couple of weeks anyway. It’s also almost time to wrap up this challenge; it finishes at midnight on Saturday, so I’m hoping to have reached my goals.
But let’s see how I’m doing right now, shall we?
