Crash Course Daily: March 16- March 22

So, I am a week behind this schedule. Tomorrow is the last day of March. I did all these this week. Awkward…Note to self: doing things one a day is setting myself up for failure because I am exhausted all the time.

Filipino Food

So we all know how much I adore the Filipino culture…and especially the food, oh my goodness. Since I graduated and had to leave FUPAC, I haven’t been immersed in the culture as much anymore. Time to brush up on names and dishes of Filipino food so I can successfully remember all the deliciousness. If you get out of practice with this stuff, you can’t remember since I do not speak tagalog and none of the words stick. Damn, now I want all this stuff. Yummmm

I realize this is just a ridiculous movie but it makes me happy. Ok back to learning.

I have never been good in a debate. I end up not knowing how to convey my thoughts, which are valuable, and I end up looking like I have no case. It drives me nuts. Especially being a very small and young looking woman, being taken seriously can be a struggle. So I am looking for a few tips to help me with situations where I need to stand my ground.

Eventually, my best friend and I will move out. We are poor college grads who will most likely find a tiny place we will love to pieces. This means that I want to help prep myself by best usage of space…and in cute ways. I even took a book out of the library for this! I love interior design, always have. When I was younger, I thought that would be my career.

So next month my project will be for learning Tagalog, the Filipino language. But I am not really sure the best way to start learning that language, so I might as well search for options now. (Preferably for free…)
