la nieve

Here in the South we have witnessed the effects for Winter Storm Pax and I’ll say this, it’s not too bad.  We have a lot of snow and I even ventured out in it today for a little while.  For me, that’s a big feat, I hate being cold.  And I’ll tell you one thing, my cats certainly don’t like it at all!  In honor of our weather I thought I’d share some winter vocabulary.

la nieve- snow
el frío- cold
el hielo- ice
blanco- white
el copo de nieve- snowflake
el invierno- winter
la tormenta- storm

happiness is….

For me, I’ve realized that happiness is helping others. I truly love what I do: tutoring. And it’s what makes me the most happy, no matter what is going on in my life. If someone would have told me (almost) 3 years ago now, that I would start a business where I’d be teaching everyday, I don’t think I would have believed it. But now, I can’t imagine doing anything else. And I’m so thankful to be able to use my gifts and talents in a way to help others learn and grow.

New Year New Things

So, when I studied abroad in Argentina (I can’t believe that was 6 years ago now!), I decided to take a Portuguese class.  No, I wasn’t thinking clearly.  And after one semester of a class that met once a week for three hours at a time, I definitely wouldn’t recommend it.  Not that I didn’t like the language, as a matter of fact, I loved it.  But taking a third language in your second language isn’t such a bright idea.  

I don’t ever remember being so tired.  After those classes my brain would be fried.  If I didn’t know a word in Spanish, then I couldn’t learn what it was in Portuguese….what I needed was a English/Spanish/Portuguese dictionary.  I remember taking the oral exam at the end of the semester.  My best friend was my partner and near the end of the exam, we didn’t know if the professor was speaking Portuguese or Spanish….but we made it through and did well.

Now, six years later I’ve decided to give Portuguese another chance.  And I’ve learned that I can really understand it pretty well, but the pronunciation is very different from Spanish and has a very nasal sound at times.  I’ve really enjoyed it so far and hope to practice it a lot this year!

What new things have you started in 2014?

It’s almost the New Year!  I can’t believe that another year has gone, but I’ve had so much fun helping everyone study and prepare this year and I’m really looking forward to doing the same in 2014! 

Don’t forget to eat 12 grapes on New Year’s Eve, one for each gong of the clock!  It’s hard, I won’t lie, but if you can do it just imagine how much good luck you’ll have next year!

Do you have any New Year’s traditions?  Chinese food? A special cake?

In our family we always have a seafood feast! Yum yum!!
