I will do this. I will get better. I always get discouraged when I watch videos of other foreigners speaking Japanese. I always feel like I should be at their level or better. It’s true that I could have 4 years of Japanese completed already if I had known about the co-op program sooner, but I can’t dwell on that. Right now I need to stay motivated and focus on getting into the third year class. That and I need to continue reviewing over the summer. I really should try to hang out with Gabrielle and some other friends to practice speaking more. I’ve pretty much been a recluse though due to being broke and still jobless. It sucks that JHU is such a long drive away and I have to pay for parking.
