I've been keeping a low profile this week, since coming down with New Country Syndrome a bit. Luckily, it's come at a good time to catch up on all the other projects I set myself to do in the summer. Apart from working (I've been able to work from home for a few months which is how I seem to be on two-month vacation), I've been really getting back into writing, which kind of fell by the wayside when I got a new job this past spring. My other project of the summer was learning (or relearning) French. Like most anglophone Canadians, I studied it in school for about a million years and came out able to write an essay but unable to speak a word. I've been applying myself for the last month, doing CD courses, trying to read, getting a language exchange partner, and watching children's TV shows out of Quebec. I've regressed about 25 years and my favourite show is currently about a piglet and a camel and a puffin who are all friends. So cute! Kind of wish I'd actually watched these when I was a kid though; I would probably have learned way faster.
What are your goals and projects at the moment? I always have to have something in the back of my mind that I'm working on, or I start getting neurotic and think I'm doing nothing with my life...
