Duolingo is free, for mobile and online with desktop. It’s not the best, it has drawbacks (like it doesn’t teach much grammar, you gotta learn by guessing a lot) but it’s better than nothing. I’m willing to help you practise. This goes for anybody out there who needs someone to practise with if they feel intimidated by trying with a native Spanish speaker (which scares the life out of me tbh!).
I mean I’ve used Duolingo for the last few months and I listen to a lot of Spanish music now and I have a translator app that has study guides and words of the day and it’s great
but I still don’t know crap. I spent so long learning French that I still instinctively use it instead. On top of genuinely losing all my academic ability over the last 6 years. It’s seriously infuriating. I used to have a functioning mind and I wasted it learning French and English lit and memorizing television theme songs and entire movie scripts and the names of fabrics and like what the frik was I doing??? Someone should have beat my head in with an ashtray. I would have at least served a purpose that way.
Did that stop me from spending time making these? Nope. 🙃 but it definitely should have.
#yall lemme know when he hugs a real ginger plz #one with curly hair would be cool #i can like .... photoshop in my own face or something #🙃 #im a loser in a non funny kinda way #i just miss him. .... in that ive never met him.... but you know what i mean #i did take that cornfield picture though so dont go stealing that plz. #or do. #who the junk cares really
*openly wonders why people care so much about Gael when it comes to Diego.*
*starts a Diego blog because I wanted a place where it was all Diego all the time and no Gael to louse it up*
*is choosing a Gael movie over a Diego movie tonight*
I’m that snake I warned me about. 🤷🏼♀️
Update: Gael is great and has beautiful eyes and short hair. Diego is great and has beautiful everything. ✌🏻 (but I think Gael cries better. Not sure I’ve seen Diego do it that often actually…)
In related news: The Crimes Of Padre Amaro is a real good movie and it made my stomach hurt. (But also my best friend is a very devout catholic and she’s not here but I still feel insanely guilty for watching that knowing it kinda trampled on everything she respects…. so like if you’re devout or if you love someone who is- probably don’t watch this movie unless you can compartmentalize better than me🤷🏼♀️)
#is there a movie where Diego cries? #flatliners maybe? #im sure ive seen it once. but i cant remember which one
The best (wholesome) sound in the world is Javi Suarez saying ‘que bonita’ backstage at the competition and you can’t tell me otherwise.
There are other sounds that Diego Luna has made on film that are a whole other kind of wonderful tho 🙃 I think it would get taken down if I made a compilation of them or I definitely would…. for….. educational purposes?🤷🏼♀️✌🏻
since everything’s a little weird right now & most seem to be bored I thought we could play a quarantine game 💘 answer the following! 1.how has your day been? 2. what is the last thing that made you smile? 3.what’s keeping you entertained these days? 4. if you are in some kind of quarantine/self isolation: is there anything you’d like to achieve in this time? 5.post a selfie! (if you’re comfortable with that) 6. last but not least: send this to some mutuals to keep the game going 🥰
1. My day actually sucked. I ended up in the ER for pancreatitis. I’m on a liquid diet for a few days. Could be worse, though. At least I got to go home.
2. My cat being a doofus and trying to convince us that she really needs to go outside.
3. Ebooks, fanfic, art.
4. I’d like to get more writing done.
5. I don’t usually post selfies but… I like my new haircut.
1) I don’t like to put negative things into the world if they don’t benefit anyone.
2) I went to the store for the first time today and I was sitting in the back of the parking lot, using my phone before I drove home, and I happened to look up. This guy was maybe mid 40s and he looked around him to see if anyone was watching. Then he took off running with the cart. And he actually hopped up on the thing and rode it like a small child, all the way back to his truck. He loaded up his groceries, and then rode the cart again, back to the cart station and it was so joyous and delightful.
3) I Love Lucy. Sleep. Hunter Hayes. Sleep. Reggaeton. Sleep. Making masks. Does mental instability count as ‘entertained’? It’s certainly keeping me occupied at least.
4) I need to clean. Depression mess is getting gross…. again…. I want to get a couple hundred masks made this week. And, by the end of summer, I want to get through this stack of like 12 books I’ve been meaning to read for a long time.
5) it’s not a selfie but it’s the best I’m gonna post here rn
Aweee I only know the gist of what that Insta Video Diego posted was. (I mean duh) but I’m all squished because Diego used the ‘sad dog commercial’ voice. I’m not even gonna share the video because the sound of him talking like that makes my stomach hurt. I’ve only heard him use that tone three times and it’s worked every single stinkin time. I mean, I feel defeated and guilty. And I don’t even know what they’re actually reprimanding other than generally “stop breaking quarantine, you morons.”
I just wonder what turn of events caused them to pose like this. It’s such a strange one.
“Ey, lets get on the floor!” “Good idea! But let’s try to make it look romantic!” “Okay but how?” “I know! We’ll make it look like I’m about to give birth in the back of a van! Diego- you be the back rest and Gael- you can be the one to catch the baby!” “Perfecto. Let’s do it!”
#this whole thing is weird and i love it #diego luna #gael garcia bernal #that lady with the name i cant be bothered to spell rn #plaid#green
#why french and not mexican? #cause i STILL cant do a latino accent of any kind #i tried yesterday and it came out SCOTTISH #but when i try to scottish it comes out some generic indian #basically im embarrassing. thats what im gettin at #diego luna#plaid
It took me all this time but it occurs to me that I can post whatever the junk I want. Like I started this blog because no one would let me talk to them about Diego. But I have other stupid little stuff no one will talk to me about.
So ima pepper in some real weird random Diego-less things just cause I wanna. …. I’ll tag em all the same so you can avoid them if it really bugs you that much.
That being said: does anyone else have a ridiculous problem with adding YouTube videos to watch later and then not watching them later??? Because it’s getting infuriating for me. I watch two or three tryna clear it out and end up adding 7 or 8 things that look really neat but I’m not in the mood for rn.
Basically I’m saying I’m gonna dedicate a whole day to clearing my watch later. And so help me goodness I’m gonna empty this sucker or I’m gonna leap off a building because it really bugs me
#this was actually semi diego related tbh #cause a hefty majority of these videos are his #emily shouts into the void!
Ima just go on record as saying that this Armenian fan account is top frikin notch cause I have rare pictures but they have SO MANY MORE and I’m so impressed. If ya have Instagram - they’re worth a follow for a nice heart attack or two a day. It’s lovely really.
#diego luna #go home ya blivet #.... or if ya already goin places- come see meeeeeeee #i can entertain you! #..... i can juggle and do the charleston #getcher mind outta the gutter hotsauce. #..... unless yer into that
