After 9 years, I was finally able to see the light at the end of the tunnel and get my degree. It was not easy sacrificing my evenings and weekends, waking up at three or four in the morning to study, and giving up precious time with my wife and daughter, but I think it was worth.

The main reason I started this blog was to talk about the French language from a student’s perspective. Having completed Bachelor of Arts Liberal Studies this week, I thought it would be a good idea to take a break and spend some quality time with my love ones and have, therefore, decided to close this blog.
All the best to those who have read my posts!

In May 2010, I decided to learn the italic hand. It was not an easy thing to do because I had to unlearn many of “bad” habits and learn new ones. I needed to practice for many hours just to be able to shape my letters to look somewhat italic. It is clear in the above picture that I was not very good at drawing italic letters back then. The next step after that was to join some of my letters and to be honest, there was a time when I wondered if I would ever be able to join my letters.
Today, my italic handwriting looks like this:
While there is still a lot of room for improvement, I honestly believe that I have made a lot of progress. I cannot wait to see what it will look like in two years.

I’ve watched this video many times and still cannot get enough of it. This is a domain, in my opinion, where technology will never be able to take over for if it did, the final product would not have a soul.
