So there I wasn't, waiting for my turn on a routine, and every disliked, speaking test, and I drew this guy completely out of my head. Just having some fun, not sure why, but I need to work on my speaking. I realize that the more I speak the better everything else is, I have been telling some tall tails in class to just simply practice my vocabulary, anyone who is experienced in this, I am asking for some confirmation that it is okay here to tell a white lie and or is it justifiable to fib a little in order to practice the new words? I love the language and the people that I work with and the culture is fascinating as it has shaped and been shaped so much by the language, as are so many other languages.
I don't remember where I saw it but it was a fun logo off of something, I had to send it through my hand and see it again. I tried to work on the horns a little extra and then started on the body, it was fun, I need to get back to studying, sure love all the inspiring words everyone has left on my blogs, thank you!

I am getting backed up on needing to draw, I have done some great homework. Lots of listening and that reminded me of how well my brother always did at what ever language he was trying to learn. I hope to someday do half as good as he does!

I got in trouble for drawing, sort of strange but that's what you get with different cultures, I had drawn the previous picture and shown it to the individual who was the model (he did know at the time). I don't think he liked it and made a few comments, but then later after class, he told me to take it off my computer and said that other students have drawn pictures of teachers and put bad words on the picture and he doesn't want that to happen again. So I logged off the blog and it was off the computer. I am working on memorizing more the the lessons and I hope this will help, I think it will, it worked the first time around with spanish. I know I need to get some more sleep, the tutor is really helping and I miss my family soooo much. I will try to draw some more around class as I get some good stress out, and I can just do some talking in target language while I talk. I just have to keep myself out of trouble with drawing "bad" pictures!
