How I did it: I don't recommend this to anyone, because not everyone will have someone who will do this for them without being obnoxious, but I was sure I would be compelled to log in, so I had a trusted friend change my password and not tell me what it was until the end of the week.
I also stayed off tumblr and twitter for that time, and I found other things to do, like reading and playing video games and (as a last resort :P) doing homework. Read how I did it… 16 months ago
Well, I guess it’s worth mentioning here that I’m taking Spanish in high school, and I absolutely love it. I’m told I have a talent for languages, but unlike French, I’m not just good at Spanish writing. I’m also good at speaking it, which is a huge deal when it comes to living in a Spanish speaking country.
I’m top of the class, which only helps to increase my confidence, and when my dad goes to Spain on business trips he usually brings me back something in Spanish so I can practice my pronunciation by reading out loud.
The only thing is that I have to teach myself the vosotros pronoun because we don’t learn it in class, and as it happens, they use it mostly in Spain. 17 months ago

They taught us about food safety, the various types of kitchen equipment and all the different cooking terms we might come across, as well as about nutrients and healthy eating. We cook about once a week, and we've done all kinds of foods to practice different skills. Read how I did it… 17 months ago
