My journey of becoming financial independence by 35 years old
One of my long term goal was to be fluent in French (I want to utilize the language and communication part of my brain, I read somewhere, people live longer and have better cognitive functions when their brain waves are more active). Due to high concentration of math and science, and having already master a second language, I only took a year of French high school. It wasn’t enough. I forgot everything. So this year, I had set out to spend 15 minutes a day to learn French. It is midway through October, and I am still very bad at it.
To fix this problem, I’ve decided to take more time to learn it – the immersion method. I’m not in France, how can I get the maximum exposure?
Ah, back to the France trip, Mr. only knows some Spanish, so it’ll be up to me trying to coordinate this trip to France. The matches will be played in ten stadiums in ten cities: Bordeaux, Lens, Lille, Lyon, Marseille, Nice, Paris, Saint-Denis, St-Etienne, and Toulouse.
I want to hit at least 4 cities to see 4 matches. I also want to sight-seeing. Anyone have good tips traveling to France? Route? Should I travel to another country beside France for this trip? (Belgium is on my mind as they also speak French?) Might as well see Rome, Athens, and Budapest? I have a lot to plan.
Update on buys: No buys. The market has been up so I haven’t bought anything. I want it to stay low for a bit longer so I can buy more stock on my list, but most of the deal just *proof* and *gone! Oh well!
Update on soccer: The weather has been bad, so we haven’t had any game, last weekend it was nice, but the other team didn’t show up, we won the game by default. To make the kids less disappointed, I called for a game of Parents vs Children. We had a blast!
