Although freedom is rather temporary at this point, the taste of it is still sweet. I finally have some time to let my brain rest and to publish my first blog post of 2013! I can’t say that I have any interesting stories that will bring a smile, any weird new Dutch words, or any other interesting event in particular to talk about. My last 30+ days were dedicated to a whole-hearted effort to pass the University courses I was taking this semester. The most that I can say about them is that (for the most part) they are over. I’ve learned that I seriously have to work on developing a better learning technique to deal with the whole ‘learning things in another language’ thing. This is a long road I’ve started down and right now I’m barely creeping along but it’s important for me to remember the direction that I’m heading in; forward is better than backward.
In other news, Flanders is covered in blanket of snow. The fire is lit in the fire place. Mr. Dorian is curled up on the windowsill. My biggest concern for the day is deciding whether I will drink coffee or tea.
