Ash Wednesday

So it's starting to hit me guys, I have exactly three short months here left! I am feeling increased anxiety to speak as much Spanish, read as much Spanish, and learn as much Spanish as I possibly can in, sadly, my last semester here. I even spoke Spanish in my dream last night. I think it had something to do with the play, Luces de Bohemia, that I was reading late last night.

So drum roll in a desperate attempt to cram as much into this experience as possible I am suspending my Atheist beliefs and jumping on the bandwagon for Lent. How will this help me in my goal?

I am giving up English for Lent. I am only permitting myself to speak to people in English that do not speak Spanish, ie: Family and friends on skype.

Wish me luck! (I think I'll need it)

Ps: The photo above was taken Ash Wednesday five years ago at my Catholic all girls school. Oh the memories...
