The very first goal I have added is to become fluent in a language other than English. I am not off to a terrible start, since I have been studying French in school for about 4 years. I can speak fairly well, but am still nowhere near my goal. I’d love to sit down and hold an entire conversation in French. Not small talk, but a true, deep conversation. I plan on continuing to study in school throughout college, and start attending classes and working at home to perfect my skills. It isn’t easy, but I absolutely love the idea of a foreign language.
I’d also love to speak fluent Polish. I have a small percentage of Polish in me, though most people tell me I look straight off the boat! :) I’m the only “Polish” looking girl in my family along with my Dad, so it’s kind of a special bond between us. We’re the Polskis of the family. I’ve never really been in touch with my roots, but I’d like to start. I hope to start adapting to some of the culture and to eventually speak the language. I know this would be especially difficult, but I will absolutely try! 5 years ago
