Living and learning the ol' fashioned way

I am slowly learning Spanish while cataloging books in Spanish at work. I took it as a class in high school & college, but information sticks with me better if I'm actually using it and seeing where it goes.

I've realized lately that all the things that I have truly learned in life were the result of me fucking something up and learning from it, or slowly fumbling my way into it and becoming confident about something from exposure. I guess that would be learning from examples & experience or something.

Also, I hated college and have no intention of going back other than to maybe take an adult ed. certification class or something.

I got okay grades, but I've never been able to understand native speakers unless they are talking slowly, which doesn't happen often.

I think that's true for a lot of folks... and after my bad luck tonight, I have to admit, again, that it's true, again, for me.

Some days are just shit luck days, right? I'm sure they'll have another meet and greet near you soon.
