One thing I’ve learned is that just because everyone’s pronouncing it a particular way doesn’t make it correct. So I’ve done my research and made a list of words that I would very much like to know exactly how to pronounce (and pronounce correctly), and here’s what I did today.
4. mauve (mowv)
6. eau de toilette
7. achtung – this one has all the guttural whatnot, I ended up disliking the word.
It was fun, but it doesn’t really help with me living in NZ and having a distinct accent. EG: Garage. GarAge/GArage.
Okay, so I haven’t finished the book yet, but man I am enjoying it a ton. I’ve just recently finished those chapters on self-image. I’m thinking of buying a personal copy so I can highlight those thought-provoking statements. Like for one: “no one on the face of this earth can make you feel inferior without your permission.” This book, together with The Fifth Agreement by Don Manuel and Don Jose Ruiz, have been helping me understand the fact that I should just love myself for who I am!
Lately I’ve been catching myself telling lies and basically using my ‘knoweldge’ against me just because I’ve been very used to it. But it’s a really good thing I am aware of it now, and because I am aware I can totally change it, and I am convinced that I can.
Man, this was something I have greatly enjoyed a couple of years ago. It came with my interest in wanting to learn Spanish and French. Plus I have a mate who was into flicks with subtitles. I guess I got into it as well at first because I thought it made me look smart haha. But then I got hooked. Years have passed and I vaguely remember those films I have watched. But here’s a list of movies I can remember watching, and I am lucky if I can remember 10.
Y tu Mama Tambien
Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon
Cidade de Deus
Life is Beautiful
....and that’s about it. If you have suggestions let me know. I am gonna start watching again.
