Where in the world have you been?! Don't you care about us anymore!?
Of course I do and even if I wish I spent this last (gulp) month in the room above, I was in reality just busy with work studying and daily life. I also recieved about 400 bills in five days, so it was touch and go for a bit. Enough about me...How are you!!?
Wouldn't you love to lock yourself in the room above for a month with a steady supply of tea and see what happens? I'm sure you'd discover some spectacular things.
This past month I haven't read so much as I've been tryingto finish my first Italian book cover to cover. When I finished it on the train yesterday I was ready I was ready for a marching band to go off, but alas! no such thing happened. I also discovered Gianricco Carofiglio isn't my favorite writter (of the "gialli" or mystery varietal) and found myself learning how to say things like 'ooze' 'stab' 'gash' etc etc, but it feels like an accomplishment nonetheless.
My parents, sister, brother, aunt and uncle are all coming next week and I'm so excited I can't even breath. We're going to Tuscany and as I haven't really explored the country I've been living in for six months now, I'm even more thrilled!
Have you ever read a book in another language? Could you understand all of it? Was there a technique you used whilst reading it? I'm so curious!!
