"Why are you taking advice from people whose shoes you don't want to fill?"

"People will find a way to do what they want to do 100% of the time"

I like the idea of "you're pretty" having the emotional impact (& baggage) of just like "you're tall" or "you're strong"

Thanks to that old infomercial, I am frequently tempted to buy things based on their "set it and forget it" quality.

I'm trying to find a funny video I saw a while ago about a guy filming himself for one second everyday before getting captured by a Russian agent, but then they play Foosball and fall for each other. There's also a chase scene over frozen land in it later too.

I picked an episode of the Actual Fluency podcast to listen to at random (it's been one of those podcasts I've stayed subscribed to knowing at SOME POINT I will listen to it - and I was right because it's great) and the interviewee mentioned the Michel Thomas Method for learning a language.

I am going to Berlin for a few weeks in 2 months (huge for me, not at all a frequent traveler) and even though I've been off and on working on Spanish, I was like OK let's see how this method works from what is basically a blank slate.

I have now completed the 16-track "Starter German" course (it's all audio) and I have to say I'm OVERWHELMED with how much of a game-changer this is. Not only am I learning this language, but I am relaxed in doing so, and engaged in the process. It's been lovely so far. HIGHLY recommend.

dear interpreters I use for work I AM SO SORRY I AM SO BAD AT THIS HOW DO YOU DEAL WITH PEOPLE LIKE ME
