I can’t believe another week has gone by. I have been so busy. This makes a nice change. Through my CBT session this week I learnt that I get down or anxious when I don’t have a focus. As it is my day off today I am trying to focus on learning Thai. After going to the cinema with Matt last week, he asked me why I didn’t use the time I have now to learn the language? I thought this was a very good idea and have purchased an online program from learnthaifromawhiteguy. It’s a good package and teaches the Thai alphabet along with the sounds they make. Try the first lesson for free, it’s actually really fun! I have to admit I’m struggling with the further lessons even with my basic understanding of Thai. But I am committed to putting in at least twenty minutes every day. Brett (the white guy) is confident you will be able to read Thai in just two weeks if you put in this time every day. I’m skeptical but I’m going to give it my best shot. It would be really great to be able to communicate better with my husband and his family. My negative automated thoughts of course kick in and tell me I can’t do it but I have to ignore them and think, ‘I am strong, I am powerful and I am loved!’ In other news this week, I spoke to the Student Loans Company and I’m glad I didn’t listen to that negative guy at the open day because they have said they will give me two years funding! That means I just have to fund the first year of the course myself.
