sadly reporting the friends cut

Greek is starting on Monday, I still have Hebrew brush-up to finish, and I am still working on the summer project and deep housecleaning. Fall classes begin after Labor Day, and I am carrying a full load. I have close to 200 people on my friendslist. Therefore, I have engaged in the ever-unpopular friends cut due to time constraints. Please don't take it personally if you were cut. I had to choose to keep the people whom I had been reading the longest or had the most personal relationships with. It was difficult to make this decision because I would rather keep reading everyone. I will be checking in quickly at various points throughout the day and hoping the page has not filled up with memes. If you would like to keep reading, please do. I will continue posting public posts when I can, and you are welcome to drop in when you like. I am available via email--my address is in my profile--though my responses may be delayed due to massive amounts of homework.

I still think that's very exciting that you are taking Greek. Amberielle is also taking Greek in school, and I often wish I could help her... at least I can help her with her Spanish.

I am very glad that you kept me on your friends list. I always look forward to your wise advice and kind words. You have become a very valuable friend to me!

I am glad to still be around, i enjoy hearing your reflections on my posts in LJ.

I wish you best of luck in your future endeavors, and I look forward to continued friendship and support from you!

Don't feel badly for friends cuts (though I know what you mean, I always have mixed feelings when I have to cut down on my list too. lol). Hebrew sounds exciting. I actually wanted to learn it (still do one day: It's on my list of 109492 things I want to do). I have a self-taught book here too, so one day...

I love languages. I know french, italian and spanish, and somehow Hebrew got on my list many years ago as something I wanted to learn. I think I am just fascinated with really old languages, and Hebrew in particular because it's linked to so much history. Good luck!

I studied French and Spanish a long time ago... I would like to find some good in-depth materials to brush up because both would be good research languages at the doctoral level and I could likely make a case for substituting Spanish for German since I have a strong interest in liberation theology. I'd like to pick up German one day, but it is behind Greek. I really love languages, and if I could make time for becoming good at several of them I would strictly for the purpose of enhancing my study and writing.

Re: languages
I have tons of spanish resources (both online and in braille). I think Spanish has been the language I've loved the most so far. It's a lot of fun to learn and practise. What are you using to learn Hebrew? My book is in braille, just because I figure online resources will be useless if you can't see the hebrew characters. I'd love to hear how you found good resources. (I got my hebrew book from JBI).

Re: languages
Oooooh, email me some Spanish resources...

I used Thomas Lambdin's book to learn Hebrew--got it from JBI. I've configured the Unicode table in JAWS for Hebrew braille, and it is mostly accurate. There are a few minor differences, but it is readable.
