I agree. I got an A+ every year of Spanish in highschool, including the Advanced Placement class I took senior year.

Then I got a B+ my first term of Spanish in college (granted, I tested into the 300-level course) and was so distraught by my performance that I quit. Easily one of my stupidest moves ever.
Dude, you quit over a B+? That does suck.
It went from being a subject that came completely naturally to me to a subject that I had to put moderate effort into studying. And that was just too much for me.

And we never learned the Vosotros form of verbs in high school (it was not part of the curriculum, as we were told that we would NEVER need to know it), but for some reason in college we were expected to know all about it. It threw me off.

Overall though, spanish is quite easy to learn.
That is good, as I plan on learning it one day, as I have family who can speak the language, and I got a CD about learning the language in the newspaper a few weeks ago.
Do it! It has a lot less random rules than English.
It will before I learn Italian or French ... well at least Italian. Probably learn some basic french and Spanish next year.

And the thing is you hardly will ever hear that word used. It's kinda archaic. I never heard it in regular conversation; i would only hear it when we went to Church and that word came up in Mexican Catholic scripture. So kinda high spanish/archaic.

Re: The Night Crew

That's what I was always told in high school, so I never learned how to use it.

But in my first college class, everybody else was very familiar with vosotros.

Re: The Night Crew

That's all well and good, and while it's nice to learn it, you'll hardly ever if ever, really, use it.

Re: The Night Crew

I'll probably go back at some point and try to relearn Spanish. I'd love to be fluent.

I still sometimes think in Spanish, which is kind of weird, considering it's been 5 years since I last took a class.

Spanish and Italian aren't that different. I know both, er, well I used too.

French, while not all that different, isn't as close as Spanish and Italian are.

Funny on 2 counts:

1) That website is funny, and Ninjas are awesome

2) Back when I had roommates, whenever I would leave for gym, my best friend would slap me on the ass and yell, "Get pumped!" on my way out the door.

Re: The Night Crew

Just catching up on the last few days. Y'know, condensing several nights of this thread into a twenty minute reading period is a very odd experience. It's kind of what I'd imagine acid to be like. Except with more poop, baseball, and shoegaze.

Anyway, spanish, huh? I know nothing of nothing of spanish. What with still trying to learn french, and trying a little german, spanish is little removed from me.

Has anyone else noticed how music of the Shoegazing genre sounds like the world looks without your glasses?
I wouldn't know.

My vision is so perfect that I see the world in a higher degree of clarity than, like, almost everybody. Which, in and of itself is an interesting epistemological thing to think about. Not sure what genre of music you could compare it to, though. 8bit IDM?

There's a genre of music called Shoegazing?
There's the joke that it's called shoegaze because people who go to shoegaze shows dance by apathetically bobbing from side to side and staring at their shoes.

But yeah, Shoegaze is really quite lovely. As far as I know, the primary progenitor of shoegaze is My Bloody Valentine. Hmm, I think I'll listen to Loveless now.

Je vais bien, mais un peu fatigue.

J'ai écouté de la musique shoegaze!
