TAC 2019 - Vijay

Postby vijayjohn » 2019-01-01, 6:12

Happy New Year, everyone!

So last year's TAC kind of ended in failure. I'm going to see whether I can finish my last TAC round this year in addition to keeping up with as many study groups as possible (preferably all of them). I don't really want to let them go since I was pretty instrumental in all of them, but I may have to learn to. I also need to try to finally look for a new job, and probably a new place to live as well. Can't really think of much more to say than that right now.

Nothing happened to my job. That's kind of the point; I want to try to get a new job while I still have one instead of waiting until I'm unemployed and only then starting to look.

Microsoft isn't looking for multilingual employees, are they?

Meanwhile, I'm still trying to catch up with all these study groups. :para: Getting caught up with Hebrew and Arabic is a real challenge!

Yes, Hebrew. Have you forgotten that I'd told Ser I'd do something for Biblical Hebrew?

That would be 4 serious languages, and thus I'd be right back where I started. Nope.

Take your temptations elsewhere!

I intended to do a little bit of Hebrew over the holidays so that maybe I could join back in. But all I managed to actually do is completing lesson 2... :(

Now I have to ask, why the interest in Connacht Irish in particular?

Didn't I tell you? I first started seriously studying Irish in grad school because one lady who joined at the same time as me (and whose cubicle was very close to mine for at least a few semesters) was a non-native speaker from Galway, so Connacht is the variety that she's most familiar with and that we used to sort of practice with each other from time to time.
