Will Riker. You are the best. You trusted me, you encouraged me, and most of all you made me laugh. 

Deanna, you are capable of so much love. You taught me without ever having to say a word. I realized I could be feminine without losing anything.

Ah, Worf. We are so much alike, you and I. Both warriors, orphans who found ourselves this family. I hope I met death with my eyes wide open. 

Beverly, your fierce devotion comes from within and can’t be diminished. From you, I have learned to strive for excellence no matter what the personal cost.

Wesley, I’m sorry I won’t be able to see you grow into the exceptional man you’ll become. But your kindness and innocence are ageless.

Geordi… In those moments I felt the most despair, you took my hand and helped me to see things differently. You taught me to look beyond the moment.

My friend, Data. You see things with the wonder of a child, and that makes you more human than any of us. 

Captain Jean-Luc Picard. I wish I could say you’ve been like a father to me, but I’ve never had one so I don’t know what it feels like. But if there was someone in this universe I could chose to be like, someone who I would want to make proud of me, it’s you. You who have the heart of an explorer and the soul of a poet. So, you’ll understand when I say: “Death is that state in which one exists only in the memory of others, which is why it is not an end.” No goodbyes, just good memories. 

Hailing frequencies closed, sir.

TASHA WHY MUST YOU MAKE US CRY LIKE THIS! WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!

noelohel asked: I was thinking of going to athens in 2016 by myself. Does this seem like a good idea to you? do you ever travel alone?

rufiozuko:

i love the idea of traveling alone. sometimes you just have to get away and see the world and experience it with your own perspective untainted by anyone else… because i get to shoot and go to cons and speak at colleges, i find myself traveling alone a lot, although not to the extent of going somewhere with no plans except to do something that makes me happy… to do that… i envy you.

but for travelers that are going solo… here’s a little article my friend tai seef wrote about just that! solo travel

It’s no replacement from a real teacher who can coach you and correct you and slap you upside the head, but it’s something.

But the thing is, it is absolutely easy to find native speakers — if not in your community, then online.  Immersion is the best way to learn because of the way the brain is hardwired, but that should not dissuade anyone from trying to learn by the book.
I can speak for myself and probably many others when I say that small towns and low-density communities don’t often have many options when it comes to language.  My high school only had Japanese because one of the teachers actually knew it from past life experiences.  Otherwise, our choices were French and Spanish.  Not that either are bad, but it’s limiting.  Community college had a similar problem.  It was only when I attended a state university that I saw options, but the fact of the matter is the earlier you begin learning a language, the better.  Optimal learning time is childhood because of rapid brain development, but that doesn’t discredit learning it after your brain development begins to even out.
I still remember a French tape I borrowed from the library when I was in the 6th grade.  I did it for two weeks before giving up because of reasons, but I still remember “Le Toyota est une voiture japonaise.”  I also remember many of the songs I learned in choir that were in Italian, French, Latin, Spanish, and who doesn’t bang their way through some j-pop and k-pop?
The most important thing to remember?  Everyone learns at their own speed.  Don’t compare your progress to the progress of others — that’s where institutionalized education always bothered me.  Be your own person, whoever that person is becoming or will be.
As the old adage goes: “I am a work in progress.”

It becomes more manipulative as it becomes more covert. It’s much cleaner when you state what you won’t put up with and remove yourself from situations where such behavior is rampant.
