After studying Greek for a week, I realized I just wasn’t enjoying myself. The writing was tripping me up because of all the letters that look like English letters but sound different, and the memorization that lay ahead (three genders, assorted declensions, and other such niceties) seemed endless.
I was crawl-in-hole embarrassed, but couldn’t ignore the feeling: Greek just wasn’t working for me. So I shifted to plan B, Portuguese and Brazil. Seems kinda random, I know, but I swear it isn’t.
I’ve now been studying Brazilian Portuguese for about six weeks and loving every minute of it. I’ve also been researching Brazilian destinations where I can spend some time without risking life and limb.
I’ll house my new blog, That’s So Brazil, within my soon-to-be-launched website. I’ll let everyone know when it’s up and running. Tchau for now.
