My sticker price right now isn't that high. The way jobs are going right now, its difficult to find a job. Period. I would love to get my BS, but I can't even fathom tacking on anymore money to my student loan. Knowing a second language, especially Spanish where we live would definitely help.
I decided about 2 years ago that I was going to learn Spanish. Considering where I lived, I thought that it would be a great asset to me as well. We were pretty much the only 'gringos' in my neighborhood. I'm not even kidding. Gave myself a year. A year is pretty decent to at least start. Didn't think it was that bad, I mean, if my one year old son at the time could speak more Spanish than English, I certainly could.
Never happened. So, I'm kicking this into gear now. I have a long commute to work, so I bought some audio cd's to listen to.
Todays lesson - the alphabet. I did take 3 years of Spanish between middle school and High School...I should know some of it. It was fairly easy and the woman speaking made it tolerable and I picked up a few things I didn't know or remember.
Who knows maybe in a couple of months I will be able to write one whole post in Spanish. I'm not guaranteeing it will be long, maybe only a few sentences, but that will be my short term goal.
