Learning's Hard!!!

I graduated from college 3 years ago this December, but this August I started back to school. Nick on the other hand didn't get a break and went straight into Flight School right after college graduation. Now we are both studying in our free-time, which is no longer "free." We both work and then come home to study! I teach children in the day how to learn, then go home to learn how to teach children! Ironic!

Besides studying to be a teacher (me), and how to be a helo pilot (Nick), we have decided to get ready for our big move to Japan by learning (or trying to learn) how to speak Japanese! And darnit if that isn't a very very tough language to learn! We purchased Rosetta Stone so that in the next few months we can prepare ourselves for life in Japan! I know that you can get around Japan without knowing how to speak Japanese, but how much easier will it be if we at least semi-know what they are saying???!! However, when the computer tells me how to say something in Japanese, I continually mess up the words and they come out of my mouth in a jumble of jibberish! Boo! I must get better! Luckily, we still have several months to keep learning!

So the learning goes on! (and on and on)

  1. Well, you know what? That is so admirable of you! Take advantage of this time w/o out your own kids to just learn and learn! One day they'll say, "My mommy's so smart!" I think it's so cool that ya'll are going to Japan. What a neat experience... Can I live through you? ;) Go, Holman Fam!
