Bonjour. I got to Lesson Ten in my Teach Yourself French book last year, so this year I'm planning to get to Lesson Twenty. I think there's about thirty odd lessons so that'll keep me going for a couple more years.
I've learnt it so much over the years I thought I'd try and do it properly. According to my sister who lived in Madrid for thirty odd years, Spanish and Italian come easier with a French basis. Plus we have European family connections and it might be nice one day to live in a warm part of France.
Decrease my oil intake (not oil-free, just more oil-free recipes during the week) because when I first went vegan I saw oil free as oppressive since I was already vegan, but I can see the merits in eating less oil. I also want to have a more sustainable food and drinks budget. I'm still in an L.A. frame of mind and that just won't do as a college student, especially since I want to travel a little in the summer. I decided that buying an Instant Pot, and maybe an air fryer, would be good investments for both resolutions - I can cook all those oil-free Instant Pot recipes cheaply or affordably, and an air fryer might save money over the long run (I'm still not sure about the air fryer).
