Last week was a success in the relaxation department. Mother nature really helped out by providing me with a week of sunny weather. Look, those are my bare legs!
This week I really need to:
Speak Up. I haven’t been feeling like myself lately, I was going to explain why in this post, but after writing 2 pages for just one goal I realized, that’s a whole other post in itself. That said, check back Thursday. Anyhow, I’ve been looking for a way to fix this problem. Thankfully, last week a co-worker of mine, passed me this article 5 Reasons You Should Speak Up. While I still can’t say whether it’s a solution, I figure it can’t hurt to try.
Practice my Spanish. Before moving to Spain, I lived in that happy bubble where I believed learning another language was simple. Honest to God, I thought all I had to do was live in a foreign place and that my brain, being a sponge, would just soak up. Well, it doesn’t work that way. Even if you meet a sexy Spanish lover like I did, you still have to study to learn a foreign language. The only difference is, sexy foreign lovers help keep you motivated and won’t laugh at you when you speak like a caveman. In fact, they’ll probably think it’s cute. Up until last year, I was really diligent about learning Spanish, after all my relationship depended on it. To be fair, last year on top of working full time, I also got a Ph.D in Spanish driving (my driver’s license) and published a book. Not bad I’d say, but sadly, my Spanish took the back seat and here I am, in Spain speaking like an adolescent cave man. So, this year I hope to improve my Spanish si or si, meaning no if ands or buts.
GET PHOTOS! The photo above is probably the only half-way decent recent picture I have of myself for I am the anti-selfie. I hate taking pictures of myself and I need some. Publishers and editorials are asking me for more, which is a great thing, except, I have none. So I need to make a date with my friend/photographer to do a photo shoot, which sounds like fun, if I weren’t so self conscious. I don’t know about you but I find it terribly difficult to act natural on cue. Any tips on how to take a nice photo ladies, gents?
