Despite my Terminator fueled apocalyptic imagery, my life is not a burned-out ruin.
A good thing that happened this week was my discovery of "Coffee Break Spanish". Check it out. It is a spanish language instruction podcast, with Scottish accents. It's fun for me to practice things I've already learned and learn a few new words (seems to be based mostly on Spain Spanish).
Still working on some stuff, still needing to keep my eyes on the prize, but for now, things feel a lot better than they did yesterday.
