Lately I’ve been going on a language learning spree – sort of but not really since languages aren’t magically learned in a day or two though that would be rather awesome and crazy all at the same time. It’s fun really; personally I’m attempting to learn French from scratch and the pronunciations in Mandarin (since I know the character system to some extent though I still need to learn how to write most of them). The reason for this language learning spree…well… I suppose it’s an attempt to both fill my summer with something productive as well as an attempt to develop a new skill that I can perhaps use in the future whether it might be for experiencing the culture in a foreign country or for local interactions with foreigners. Anyone with me with that? On a side note, it was apparently also National Ice Cream Day on Sunday — so let me just go have my late celebration now and get a little more in touch with the my share of the American culture while I am capable of that. – Vivian
