Today I did a brave thing and I told my work counterpart that I was planning on practicing my Spanish and regaining fluency in the new year. He’s a native speaker and was really excited to hear that, and we chatted for a while talking about words that were different in the respective dialects that we grew up hearing (Mexican for me, Dominican for him). Twenty seconds of courage, and very good results!

As you might imagine, I deal with Mexican Spanish all the time down here. It's always fun to see someone of Mexican descent and someone of Puerto Rican descent arguing over wether a word is a swear word or not.

 

My wife happens to be a Spanish teacher as well, so if you need any help I'm happy to give it.

Rurik...

 

1.       BE STRONG: Go to the gym twice a week, hit (fitness goals to be decided)

2.       BE BRAVE: Speak Spanish with Real Humans, regain fluency

3.       BE FOCUSED: Make 4 comics, finish one every 3 months

4.       BE STILL: Meditate, cultivate stillness

5.       BE BALANCED: Budget, spending, blah blah

 

I’ve been thinking about having a Breath of the Wild theme for The Whole Year, but we’ll see in a week or two if that still feels like a good idea.

...

One of the many perks of my new job is a certain allotment of cash each year for employees to spend on their personal development or health – I have been puzzling over what to use mine for before the new year, and I finally decided on a set of day passes for a local climbing gym. Rock climbing and bouldering are something I love but tend to be pretty expensive, so this is a nice treat for me and will, I think, have good results in terms of me doing my workouts.

 

Plus, I’ve been playing Breath of the Wild over the last year and I WANT TO CLIMB EVERYTHING SO HERE I GO TO CLIMB EVERY SINGLE THING! UPPER BODY STRENGTH HERE I COME!

 

YES SO MUCH YES!!!! I am so happy you grasped what I was saying and it resonated with you.  That's the rowan we know and love!  Especially love your WORDS OF POWER for each of those goals.  That is something the army was big on when giving mission orders; it was never "We're going to" or "we'll try..." it was ever "WE WILL" do the thing, close with and destroy, secure the objective, squish the bug.  No room for fear or doubt.

 

I'm 110% behind a Breath of the Wild theme for your next challenge!

Sooooooooooooooooo jealous of your climbing gym!  I would kill for one locally because I've tried it a few times (plus Jason Momoa does the thing and I want to do the thing he does because I'm that kind of fanboy)

Hallo! Am here, not dead, but sort of dead from travel, holiday, two solid weeks of heavy extroverting and a whole battery of routine doctor checks squeezed in before new years.

Week 3 numbers as follows:

Workout: yes! three rounds of the Apex Predator workout

Flossing: 7/7

Brushing: 7/7

Movement: 5/7

Draw: 3/7

Read the News: 7/7

Delicious Booze Units: 11

This week has been bonkers, but assuming I don’t completely space out tomorrow my week 4 should be nice and tight as well. Did a kickboxing class, got a bunch of fillings done, gave blood, saw Spiderverse, started playing the new Smash, flew across the country, got my Legend of Zelda christmas sweater, read two books, made fudge, so tired, full wrap tomorrow.
