Is there a condition where one is incapable of learning a new language? Cuz...I think I have it. I'm pretty sure I failed my Italian exam yesterday and it put me in a mood for the rest of the day.
And not a good mood.
I was pretty bummed about how baffling the entire experience was. But I don't want to talk about it.
Have you ever had a moment when you totally doubted your own abilities? It's not even a 'can I do this?' It's a full blown 'I can not do this.'
Yesterday I doubted that I can do it. And yes, I said I didn't want to talk about it but I totally lied.
Last night I asked the man if he thought it was possible to be incapable of learning a new language. I was looking for an answer that involved more of the "not for you, love. You can do anything you set your mind to." And not the answer I got which was "Yep, totally."
I may have watched all the faith I had in myself drain out of me and onto the floor.
So then I moped. And fretted. And wondered how likely it is that I will not be able to pass this class.
Woe is me.
But then we watched some Honey Boo Boo to drown the sorrows because, seriously, watching that show makes me think anything is possible.
And then there was the epiphany.
If a show like Honey Boo Boo can be made then I can learn Italian.
This is just simple logic.
