I retract my previous statement about my school being a bunch of bastards when it comes to the wireless access.

Seems it was just glitchy, and I don't need a client program, and it all works fine again.

Got out of class early, stopped at the store (I have had a wicked craving for toasted tomato sandwiches lately...) and now I'm going to kick some website ass, because later, I need to finish mi composizione d'italiano.

I think the most frustrating thing about learning a language when you're, you know, not a kid, is that you realize you just don't have the words or expressions you want to use. I mean, I'm still thinking in English and translating to Italian, because I don't have all the words/verbs/etc to form long sentences. I can't remember a time in English when I didn't have as much (or more) vocabulary as I needed. French frustrates me, too, but only because I don't have the eloquence I can have in English. It's like... My English is 9 out of 10, say. But my French is only about a 6. I can communicate basics without trouble in French, but only the basic ideas. I lack the ability to talk in subtleties and such. Plus I still make grammar mistakes. :P

Italian, I'd put at a 2 right now. And the frustrating this is I know I'm at a 2. I am painfully aware of how much I do not know.

On the bright side, I did well on my midterm and a lot of the second page (where I only made three mistakes) was very instinctual for me. So maybe I'm getting the hang of it. Who knows?

The Boston Red Sox rule.

That is all there is to say.
