Buona sera i miei amici!

I've decided to take matters into my own hands, so next week I'm starting Italian class. Yep, Italian! I just ordered my book online, and I hope it'll get here soon so I can start flipping through it. I know I've said this before, but I feel really good about my decision - and this time I'm following through no matter if life decides to bring me lemons, or what. I need something to keep me busy come fall and winter, and it's a ginormous plus (for me) that the course is internet based.

When I first moved to Trondheim in 2007 I was ambitious enough to start studying English at NTNU. I started, and about a year later I realized it was a mistake. I dropped out due to a lot of crap - for the very first time in my life having a handicap was actually making me depressed - and the fact that I didn't want to become a teacher of any sort. After my failed attempt at English I wanted to study Phonetics, but I could never grow accustomed to the lousy attitude a lot of fellow students and a certain professor kept showing me, so I quit once again.

As a little girl I dreamed of becoming a translator, but for some odd reason I never followed up. I've been heading in that direction several times, but something always distracted me, pulling me into something completely different. I've now become 31 years old, and I feel like it's time to take some responsibility. Maybe now is the time to become a translator? I've always loved languages, so why shouldn't I do something I know I'm good at?

I'm really looking forward till September 13th. Wish me luck! Grin
