    I Once Borrowed a Cd Lauguage Set From the Library

    and learned some basic conversational phrases. But I really need to see the written Gaelic words to pronounce them correctly. My pronunciation was surprisingly inaccurate. Anyway, I like the language. It's like speaking a curious combination of Latin, French and Norse. No...

    I'm Growing Restless

    I sent a text to my boss saying I wasn't keeping well and couldn't make it. I lied. And this is the fourth lie of a similar kind since the year began. I did this before with my last job as well, but I used to detest that place. I've been at this place for more than two years now...

    Love The Lyrical Sound Of It
