    Right now…

    I’m sitting in this hotel room. My wife and daughter went to swim to tire her out. Taipei thrives 14 floors below me. I’m up here with my son sound asleep. Practicing my French and trying to find words in this snippet.

    A few years ago, I wasn’t even thinking of learning French. Well that’s not true, exactly. I’ve wanted to speak French since I was a kid. Just always put it off. For some reason. Until now. I’m biting off as much as I can trying to learn.

    I dream of a time when I’ll be in France speaking like a local. Blending in seamlessly to any conversation. That’s the goal that I have for me on this site.

    What’s your goal right now?

    And, oh yeah, how did you find this snippet?
