Question of the day.

Name one way in which you were proud of yourself this week and one way in which you were disappointed in yourself?

My answer:

The thing I’m proud of is that I’d just finished another level of my Welsh course, yay! I’m doing two courses at the same time, I have only five challenges to do ofone of them so far, and of this one of which I’d just finished a level I have only one level left yet. Then I’ll be able to focus on some more advanced stuff. I’m really proud of myself today because of it.

And disappointed, well, luckily no big disappointments this week so far, but I’m a bit frustrated with myself still that I can’t seem to finish any Vreeswijk translation, I’m trying to finish something since his birthday, because as I mentioned in some earlier posts I tend to be able to write some of the translation and then get stuck with something and don’t know how to get out of it, how to finish, sometimes is just a very small detail that I don’t know how to handle in the translation, and I have lots and lots of poems and songs that I started to translate but don’t know how to finish. Or sometimes I just start to write and then realise it doesn’t really look the best, but I have no idea how I could improve it, so as a result I’m just deleting what I’ve done so far but not doing anything instead. And, unfortunately, since his birthday, I haven’t been able to complete any translation, despite I really wanted to and looked forward to it, that’s rather discouraging.

How about you? πŸ™‚

  1. I’m disappointed in myself this week because an elderly close friend of the family died, and I failed to go to his funeral. I wanted to support and be there for his wife, who I used to hang out with on occasion–wonderful woman. Instead, I was caught up in my own ridiculous drama and I did not rise to the occasion. I deeply regret that and feel bad, well awful, about it. My dad said she’s old and confused now and wouldn’t have recognized me anyway. But she might’ve appreciated my presence, and for that, darn it, it’s all on me. I’m seriously disappointed with myself.
