Learning To Live Life (Which Is Actually Insanely Hard To Do)

So I had a real shit weekend.  In that weekend I re-recognised something I had forgotten recently.  Your pain and your suffering means nothing to anyone else.   (Well, if you’re fortunate enough to have a close family, a spouse who loves you, or VERY good close and REAL friends theres an exception)  However, if you’re reading this blog Im guessing you’re probably in the same boat as me and you don’t have any of that. So before we go any further we need to let that sink in: Very Little In Life Has Meaning, And Very Few People Will Ever Care About You.  ? Especially in our modern age of excess we live in.  Capitalism has ruined our brains turning us into consumers rather than humans.  According to our society, togetherness no longer means anything.  Now happiness is found in that shirt from Abercrombie and Fitch that will make you look sexy.  That BMW that will make you look wealthy, That new I-Phone that will…

I’m Thinking, I’m trying, I can handle it.

if all my teachers taught all their lessons sarcastically with tons of humour added, I’d learn so much more, I’m trying really hard today after all of yesterday’s shit, I’m not giving up, I’m trying, I’m listening to so much of suli that I’m now laughing :’) and my emotion’s are coming back, and my attitude and persona, I’m not giving in and I will not give up, I will try hard, at life, at school, at mosque, because I won’t let my breakdowns stop me from being me, 🙂

DuoLingo

Starting this month, I am challenging myself to become fluent in Spanish by December. One app that I’ve found to be very helpful is DuoLingo. Before you begin, you take a test to give the app an idea for where you are at. You can also set a goal to practice for a certain amount of time daily, weekly, and so forth. The app will send a notification through your phone and email with a reminder to meet your goal. The learning activities include listening and translating, listening and typing what you hear, reading and translating, word identification, and more! It’s been great so far. Plus it’s free. If there were a section that allowed me to practice conversation skills, it would be perfect. Pizza, Netflix, and Happiness. Mei.
