On a Spanish High

Ok, so I've kind of decided that I want to do really really well for my summer Spanish course, basically because I have the whole entire summer than I can simply devote to going over everything I learnt last year and just consolidate the hell out of it.
This probably isn't very blog worthy, but it really is the only thing that I can think of blogging about at the moment. Apart from the fact that I applied for a job at the JB Hi-Fi that is going to open in a few months at my local shopping centre which I really hope that I get. And there is all about New Years Eve, but I think that I am going to have to devote a whole post to that sooner or later.

Anyway, I've set myself up with an account at Flashcarddb, and I'm making myself massive lists for all the vocabulary that is in the chapters of my Spanish textbook that I've been using at uni, and I'm also just making lists of randomly impressive words that I may never use, but it's always good to know.

I've also tried to find some decent telenovelas on the internet to watch, which is kind of proving to be a little difficult. I may just suck it up and see if I can buy a DVD set or something like that online, which would be good.

But yeah, pretty much just living in a Spanish bubble at the moment, which is kind of fun at the moment. But I suppose that I do feel a little bit bad not devoting more time to Japanese over the holidays, but I try and do a little bit each day. I just find it a whole lot harder to do that in Japanese, I don't really feel as if I am at the same level with Japanese as I am with Spanish, in all honesty. But I will keep on keeping on with it, I'm really eager to see how the 2nd year of Japanese will go at uni, I'm hoping for some really good progress.

So yeah, just thought that I would keep you up to date at the moment. I'm actually really surprised at how quickly the summer holidays have been going, which is good and bad. It's right about now where I kind of get mixed emotions about going back to school or uni, you know when you actually start to look forward to getting back into the swing of things and finding a bit of a routine. And getting into a reliable sleeping pattern, which is something that I always have in the back of my mind as something that I should be doing, but never really get around to.

peace folks x
