This blog is for fun to keep track of my journal entries while I learn Hindi. I plan to write posts in the middle of the night while I am sleep deprived and though I can’t promise that entries will be error and/or sarcasm free I hope you are able to look past the mess and enjoy. I also believe and hope that through my journal you will find some beauty in cross-cultural dialog, education and friendships….
Feel free to ask questions and be sure to find me on other SM sites. Felicia Follum Art+

How did I study Hindi? Moths 6 - 8 ish plateau
With some friends celebrating Holi!!!
Holi hai!! Holi hai!!
Well, I spent most of these months being frustrated that I couldn't understand as much as I wanted,
while simultaneously trying too hard to pick up on every individual word,
having to ask everyone to repeat what they had said or explain,
meanwhile I awkwardly and honestly didn't know if I had understood what had been said previously (and I still don't always know if I'm actually understanding or not)
but I had to respond every time someone asked if I had understood...
UGH this was a frustrating time in the process.
Part of me feels this time was wasted but I know it wasn't I just don't know what I learned yet...Maybe patience or maybe how to not spend time when learning a language. Either way I made some great friends and I enjoyed nearly every moment of it.
