What I’m doing now
I just (yesterday) finished my 7-month study of Esperanto. I might write about it some day. In short: my goal was fluency but I didn’t reach it. I built great vocabulary thanks to Anki, and spoke an hour a day with someone fluent, but my comprehension wasn’t fast enough. If people spoke very slowly, I could search the 1000+ word database in my brain to remember the meaning of each word, but otherwise most of it flew by me. In hindsight, I should have done even more speaking and listening, and less reading and memorizing. To me, this a half-failed mission.
I’ve spent a lot of the last couple days thinking about what’s next for me, and making some plans. I’ve got thousands of hours of things I want to learn and create. At first, I was thinking of doing them all myself, but I was surprisingly much more excited about the idea of hiring others to help me with each thing. So, that’s what I’ll do next.
(But this is a /now page, which only talks about now, not what’s next. So I’ll post about that when it’s happening.)
