Totally borrowing this in conversation.

Exactly! It has to be the way they enunciate, though I'm curious about how the regional accents stack up against eachother. My roommates joke a bit how some accents are incomprehensible to them.

I'll have to make a run to Barnes and Noble. As much as I love my Kindle, that can't be beat.

No offense taken at all.

I'll take a gander at Ana. A teacher's attitude really does make the difference - goes for any subject.

Regional dialects/accents can be fun to hear.

Semi-related, my current roommates are from Brazil. Their Portuguese sounds nothing like a Spanish relative to me half the time. Their cousin who came over could have fooled me otherwise.

¡Buena suerte!

Practice and fun, the best combo there is. Unless the woodsmen have another purpose? I'd like to think the flat surfaces are easier to burn onto.

What medium are you using for learning Spanish? I have those laminate study sheets on grammar, vocab, etc. Makes it easier to reference when writing, but sounds like you're working on conversation more.

I can scan my sheets and send them your way if you want. Its a lot of tightly packed information. Good stuff, nonetheless.

30 day countdown, WOOO!

Nice detail on the mountain landscape. Which came first, the man on the log or the man on the coaster?

Work

My workplace didn't secure the big contract they expected (which would them to hire me full-time). They also are losing money on the contract they signed me on for.

Thus, I was told I have 3 weeks left yesterday....

Which is one week more than my fellow temps. Because I told them last month I was going back to school at the end of July, they honored the date I set. Getting that extra money in my pocket will be very nice considering the alternative.

Even though this changes nothing about my plans since coming back from Israel, it feels bittersweet anyways.

I'm still leaving on my terms, but the connotation has changed a little.

Mid-way through today I got a text from a place I interviewed near the school I'm going to for follow up (3 months later!).

I gotta say, I really like not having homework/studying in the meantime.

Relationships

Life

Things are still cruising along nicely. Getting the car in my name finally. Adulting, etc., etc.

Brushing up on my Spanish and getting into writing poetry after all this time. Trying to knock 'em both out by doing the poetry in Spanish. Only a couple verses a day. Starting solely in Spanish and thinking as such, rather than formulate the verse in English then translate.

בבקשה!

Started Earth Abides, per kb and goob endorsement. Doesn't waste time setting the scene, it's refreshing so far.

Drove down to my brother's for the extended weekend. The Silmarillion is much better as an audiobook than as paperback. Batman: Hush is the comic I'm on. Perfect timing as a comic-con's in my brothers city this weekend. Could be my first comic-con! The day I'm looking at has a couple Batman segments Q&A, a Star Trek: TNG with Will Riker's actor, plus some.

Happy independence day (and the American one, too)!

Was going to chime in only to voice these exactly. Beat me to the punch. Those are really rewarding classes to throw down in. To the end of universality, in taking these math courses, they will absolutely enrich any physics courses you take since the formulae will show up in fun, sometime (un/)expected correlations.

Building on the why is a key answer. Where ever you find the magic in physics. Honing in on the math itself may well be a fine solution to cutting through to graduation, and applying the skills in those math courses to the physics of your fancy afterward.
