Rainy day

I know a lot of people dislike the rainy weather cold day we had today, but I enjoy those days. It is the type of day that you come home from work, and want to warm up with a good book and a hot cup of tea or coffee.

Still trying new techniques for studying. This time it is recording vocabulary and playing it back to myself in the background, while I still go over flashcards as I’ve always done. I hope that I am able to figure out a good technique before it gets too far into the class!

Found these photos from a friend’s birthday earlier in January. I wanted it to be a surprise, so I lit the candles ahead of time, and nearly caused the smoke alarm to go off in the apartment! Lesson learned for me that I shouldn’t try to put 29 candles on a small cake!
