This week I did more Rosetta Stone (surprise, surprise). I've worked on the software for about 6 hours this week and plan to do more on the way to and from my volleyball tournament this weekend. I also reviewed flash cards on Quizlet and have been having basic conversations with my dad in Polish. It is now the end of February and I still don't know what to make my final presentation about. I should probably talk to Mr. Provenzano about it… I am still thinking about where I want to go with it and what I want my overall message to be. I've been drafting and outlining ideas in various orders for it, but I'm not really getting anywhere.
Overall, 20 Time has been okay, but it's definitely not my favorite thing that I've had to do for a class this year. I like the idea behind it and I enjoy hearing about what other people have done with it, but I'm not an exactly creative person so I think I ruined it for myself by choosing to learn polish. I'm not particularly interested in it or passionate about it. I do the work for my project just to get it out of the way, not because I have fun while I'm doing it. I only picked polish in the first place because a lot of my other ideas had been shot down and I was on a time crunch and I heard my dad and grandma on the phone speaking in polish and was wondering what they were saying so I figured I might as well make that my project. If I could go back and do things differently, I would pick a completely different project. I would do something that actually interests me and that I would enjoy putting in the time and doing the work for.
