My Next Challenge : Speaking Mandarin
After my recent visit to Taiwan, and having a very limited capacity to communicate with my partner's family and friends, it is now on me to immerse myself in their language, so that we can remove a key barrier in our interactions.
I have always wanted to learn to speak another language, dabbling in my heritage of German and Serb-Croat in the past, but have never had a reason really invest a lot of time into it over other priorities, because everyone around me spoke English.
Now, I find myself forced to out of necessity, which is pretty exciting actually. Being who I am as a person, I expect to exceed expectations in the goals I set for myself. It's just the way I'm programmed. In six months I will be returning to Taiwan, so I expect to blow people away with what I have achieved. The pressure is there, and clock is ticking, so it's time to get to work!
