The Void will always be with you no matter what, my dear. The Void will be here to whisper odd thoughts about the universe when you are at your most vulnerable, but most of all the Void wants to see you happy and healthy. So do what you must to get there and the Void will be with you all along the way.
Some people act really surprised when they learn poor people can’t save up a significant amount of money its like they didn’t give 2 seconds of thought to how being poor works. When you have a small amount of leftover money saving it up slowly makes the amount less small but it doesn’t magically make it a large amount of money overnight, and if you don’t have any money leftover (or are straight up not allowed to save up any money lest you be kicked off of the government programs you’re on) it doesn’t turn into ANY amount of money. And if some emergency happens, you lose money a lot quicker than you can save it up again. Its like wow! Basic math! What a concept!
“And you called me a crazy fool,” Kevin said. “You’ll lose tonight if you play like this.”
“Maybe,” Jeremy agreed, unconcerned. “Maybe not. Should be fun either way, right? I don’t remember the last time I was this psyched for a game. Look at this.” He held his hands out to them and laughed. “Bring it, Foxes, and we’ll bring it too.”
I am definitely not a langblr but I learned basic French and I am currently learning Korean starting with Hangul. There are a lot of things to be reminded whenever you are trying to learn a new language especially if you are new to the experience (like me lol).
1️⃣ It will take YEARS
Yes, believe me when I say that you will struggle. Those programs that claim that they will help you become fluent in a certain language in 3 months or less, they are probably over exaggerating. There is more in learning a language than just writing it and making sure you have proper spelling and it was translated correctly. You also need to understand it and be able to pronounce it properly with confidence. It’s just like learning your mother language, you were not able to be fluent in you mother language in just months or in just a year.
2️⃣ Starting with the characters is a must
If you are learning a language that requires you to use different characters, learn those characters first before the ‘translating game’. In learning Korean, you first need to learn Hangul, just like when you first learned English, you started with the Alphabet. After learning the characters, you can start forming words, and that is where the ‘translating game’ starts.
3️⃣ The struggle is real when learning the ‘accent’
This is the part where most struggle (including me lol). I struggled at pronouncing words in French mainly because I was not made to speak French (like how my the pitch of my voice gets higher whenever I speak English and drops down when I speak Filipino). It really does take time and many give up at this stage but since WE ARE STUDYBLRS, WE DON’T GIVE UP LIKE THAT.
4️⃣ The pressure is real when you try to use it IRL
I tried using French MANY times in real life when I have the opportunity to but then I just fail and make an embarrassment of myself and just go back to speaking Filipino or English and at the end, I will regret that I missed that opportunity. It will be hard to get yourself to confidently speak your new language especially if you don’t speak it enough (which is the reason for no. 3). But it is very important to have confidence in speaking it because if I hadn’t pushed myself to speak in front of many people in an unfamiliar language, then I wouldn’t be able to write and speak in English.
5️⃣ There will be times when you will lose motivation
For some people this is the first stage in giving up, but in terms of learning a language, this is completely normal. Yes you need to practice everyday in order to succeed but there will be days when you do not feel like it or it does not interest you anymore. Always remember to give yourself a rest because learning something out of your comfort zone can be tiring too. But there will also be days when you will wake up and feel motivated as if nothing can stand in your way and use that to your advantage and make up for lost time.
Idek if these actually help as I am not an expert and it no way can be labeled as a langblr or such but if it did, please like and reblog and follow my studygram (chrissiestudies) and tell me what other posts interest you because I am on summer vacation so I now have more time on Tumblr as opposed to before. 💕💕
