Except my french sucks! Yes I take french too, although I am definately NOT tri-lingual. My french always gets mixed in with my English and German, and I find it hard to reatain. About all I can say is really really really basic stuff. I apparently have a good accent though. My friend Khaled (who's from France) says that I have a good accent, as well as my French professor. **Shrug** So I have a good accent, what's that going to do for me! Hahaha. I'm going to Paris for a few days over Spring break so hopefully I can pick up a few things there. Here's to hope I guess... :)

<span style=\'font-family:Times\'Something told the wild geese

It was tine to go

Through the fields lay golden

Something wispered- "SNOW"

Leaves were green and stirring

Berries,luster-glossed

But beneath the warm feathers

Something cautioned- "FROST"

All the sagging orchards

Steamed With amber spice

But each wild breast stiffened

At rembered ice

Something told the wild geese

It was time to fly-

Summer sun was on their wings

Winter in their cry

<span style=\'color:purple\'It's all good in Kirsten's wood.......it is all good in Ty's hood





Another day has almost come and gone

Can't imagine what else could go wrong

Sometimes I'd like to hide away

Somewhere and lock the door

A single battle lost but not the war

Cause tomorrow's another day

And I'm thirsty anyway

So bring on the rain



It's almost like the hard times circle round

A couple drops and they all start coming down

Yeah I might feel defeated

And I might hang my head

I might be barely breathing

But I'm not dead

Cause tomorrow's another day

And I'm thirsty anyway

So bring on the rain

i've been taking spanish since 8th grade. i was in german immersion in kindergarten, and we weren't allowed to speak english except at recess, but of course i don't remember anything other than like counting to ten and *ich liebe die* or whatever. it would have been cool if i had stayed in the program [it was only at our elementary school], but the school was across town and basically the school sucked, didn't have real teachers, just random ppl who spoke german and kept quitting lol. oh well.
