I learned to read arabic a while back and for one reason or another I stopped reading it and even writing it. So when I decided to hit the books all I could see where squiggly lines after squiggly lines. It took me about 3 days of forcing myself to read the arabic instead of the transliteration morning and evening and its back! alhamdulilah, I CAN READ AGAIN!
Now I have to work on writing because that is another area that I stopped and it feels like putting on my shoes and forgetting how to tie them. I will work on my writing tomorrow after maybe a year or more of ignoring it.
Does anyone else feel like this or is it with ANY language? Because I feel like I need to coax it back with some pillow talk, like "hey baby, how you doing? you know I didn't meant to not see you for over a year? baby its not what you think! I still like you....but am seeing other languages."Why is arabic like a cross between an arab and spanish telenovela? its worst than a jaded lover, has tons of drama and makes you work twice as hard for it when you ignore it for a little bit. ahh, but its worth it. *shakes fist* it gots the goods :) Plus such a satisfaction when you master it again.
I totally suck at pillow talk.
