I officially have Merry-Go-Round Brain.
I sit in my room and my brain spins around throwing words and ideas in every direction. I´m just trying to hold on. My body literally hurts from the weight of all this Spanish that is constantly being dumped into my mind. I figure that letting my brain off-gas some of this weight will do me good. It will make room for more words and thoughts. I can´t help but stare at the white wall while my eyes blur with exhaustion and my mind runs in twenty different directions.
How do I say ¨if¨again?
What was the word for ¨maybe¨?
What are the names of my family members?
How the hell do I conjugate verbs?
My mind is going so fast and yet is so tired that I can´t even bear to look at English words. I can´t do anything but stare into space. I hold my book in front of me so if anyone looks in the room they wont think I´ve turned crazy-like.
This is payback.
I should have listened closer to Profesora Brown during the last year. Now I have to play catch-up for all the times I didn´t do my homework or didn´t practice outside of class. I´m positive that this is payback for not studying for my final exam.
This is Spanish class karma.
