Handling the Frustration

I think frustration is one of the most horrible word in English, isn’t it?  well there are many other horrible words in English, one of them could be wrinkle, I mentioned horrible not just because they are not easy to pronounce and what they can make you feel he he…  We can find many horrible words in all languages too.

The English teacher and coaches say… Think in English, some of them say too how do that
and others say don’t worry if you make mistakes,

and I agree with that. Now I think it is fine and necessary make mistakes in order to learn. But what about when you learner don’t understand the native American people.

Well, I have talked about patience, I remember every single day I have to be patience with my parents,
friends and with me, specially when I can’t understand people talking in English.

The frustration is too hard and makes feel stupid. Today suddenly appears like a voice in
my mine telling me… wait you don’t need to feel stupid… try cleaning your head of all those prejudices against yourself… I don’t think the babies when they are learning talk they feel or express a kind of frustration.
Just they try to do the best, and they don’t care what the adult people think about them and that’s it.
I thought …hey I am a learner and What’s the problem if I don’t understand… just be happy one day you’ll understand, just take a breath and keep studying… be patience girl. I know won’t be easy be patience but for me the first big step is recognize it. I’m going to focus in something better than my frustration.

The teachers and coaches should say us how we can handle the frustration when we don’t understand.
I just think I am like a baby learning English… so relax little girl.

R and L

Have you ever saw the earphones without these tiny R and L letters? This is a silly topic but I don’t care he he. Those who know me I think that they must have noticed that I am inclined to be the kind of people who, when I received an instruction, try to do it at face value. At least when a user manual get on my hands or something similar. Well, when I use my headphones I put the one that says R on my right ear and the one that says L on my left ear, this last time I did I notice that I really take my time about doing it and I don’t know why? Because today I started thinking about that and I really wonder people do the same as me? There is some reason for each hearing instrument to have a letter indicating which side of our head they should be on. Now it occurs to me maybe the smallest letters are there just so that the manufacturer can identify the pieces during the assembly process. I could ask to Google but I just rather to know what did you think about why is that? He he . Are you like me that you use your headphones in the place indicated or maybe you are one of those who do not stop and enjoy the same sound quality using them as you grab them?

WordPress MeetUp Caracas

And here I am trying to learn a little more about WordPress. Was an MeetUp event where we could know what is this platform. I want to be honest, I don’t have an abstract thought and understanding that is not necessary to be a designer or programmer to build a website or a blog. Oh my gosh it is still hard for my basic mind. Unless I released other guy were in pampers he he… ; that is a way to say there were other trainee. I have choice learning this in English so that makes this challenge more spicy. Well you know this kind of things are always better at English version because have more options to play. I loved the environment around this event. It seems nice belong this community. We are living in the collaborative era an WordPress show it to us.
