I started studying Spanish in March of 2018 but started Duolingo last summer. Today marks one whole consecutive year doing lessons on the app. I’m extremely proud of myself for sticking with it.
I haven’t written in awhile because blogging was making my pain worse. It was reminder after reminder of the pain I live in. I’ve had the stimulator for almost 3 months and it’s working fine but my old back pain is back and back worse than ever. What do you do to manage it? Please […]
I’ve been studying Spanish for a little over a year now but started using the Duolingo app last summer. Today, I hit 300 days in a row and I’m super proud of that.

I start the spinal cord stimulator trial in eight days. It can’t get here soon enough because I need help with the pain. The wait is driving me a little crazy. I am going to upload videos during the trial and most likely for a week or two after I get the implant (positive thinking). […]
Today, I reached 250 straight days of learning Spanish on Duolingo. I’m very proud about this accomplishment. It’s nice to know that with everything going on in my life that I still managed to keep this streak going. My goal is to reach 365 days in a row. funnily enough, I started writing this entry […]
Mornings are the worst part of my day. This morning I opened YouTube and started watching a video where Ralph Fiennes breaks down his most famous roles. I’ve always had this image in my head about his personality before ever actually reading/watching something about him. Turns out he’s kind of a big goof ball! I […]
I’m lucky because of all the support I receive from friends, family, and Jackie. Without their help, I don’t know where I would be. Especially Jackie. Thank you.
