It´s Never too late to...

I was sitting in my room wishing I knew how to speak French when a profound thought hit me. I can learn French. Just like Sergio is learning English. Now, I realize that doesn´t seem all that life shattering but I think the core concept behind it is often brushed a side. I hear people say all the time, ´I wish I knew how to do _________´ To which I would reply, ´Then do it!´
It´s never too late to start something new, to change the way you live, or the way you view the world. It´s never too late to pick up a new instrument, learn how to cook, or start a garden. So I decided in my moment of inspiration that I was going to tear down the collage I have been building up over the past seven months and start completely new.

This is awesome! Actually, my friend and I just decided we're going to learn another language. I'm debating between French, Portuguese, and Chinese.

Speaking of French, I just found FREE online classes. It's through Open Learning Initiative, which was founded by Carnegie Melon. It cost them millions of dollars to design this, so might as well take advantage of it!

I read this post Saturday morning, and it actually really inspired me! Sometimes we all get bogged down in the day to day and forget about what else we could be doing if we just gave it a shot :) Goodluck with the new collage!
