Earth Hour 2012

Earth Hour is this Saturday, 8.30pm. I’ve been participating in the Earth Hour for the last couple of years, and contrary to what some morons believe, it’s not about the number of watts we save in one hour; it’s the gesture that we are willing to do something for the environment, and the awareness it brings to people.

I just hope the message doesn’t get lost in all the media coverage and the ridiculous parties that the Earth Hour brings.

Why I Studied French

Module 2 of French classes ended last Sunday. It was an absolutely amazing experience learning a foreign language, especially one as beautiful as French, being taught by an equally amazing professor.

When I first decided to learn French, I was thinking that it would be a great addition to my repertoire of skills if (and when) I decide to try to dabble in something new for my career. But when I think about it, it’s not really the reason why I fell in love with the language.

People in class have their own reasons why they enrolled in class. Being under the Spanish rule for nearly 400 years, and Spanish being one of the more “popular” languages there is, it’s really more practical for one to enroll in Spanish classes instead.

However, aside from being less popular (and more conyo. lol.), the ultimate reason that tilted my decision in studying French is this song. Bonus points if you know where this is from without Google-ing it.

To my classmates, à bientôt! Until the next module!
