As I’m going back through my blog, I just made a very scary realisation. It’s been 3 years, that’s THREE YEARS, since I took the Gaidhlig course at SMO. And I didn’t finish. I didn’t finish because I was afraid. I have horrible social anxiety, and the telephone tutorials and immersion and actually talking to people was TOO FRIGHTENING. Of course, that just makes it more imperative that I re-engage and completely finish the course.

There’s no excuse – I’m doing well, I’m passing with good grades and accolades from the instructor, I can afford the course, I have the time… so screw you, social anxiety!
