My very last assignment for high school (other than IB exams) is to write a poem in Spanish for submission to a high school Spanish lit mag type thing. So, I wrote a poem, and even though the grammar is surely cringe worthy, and it’s absolutely more of a mixture of basic Spanish words than a coherent poem, I will paste it here. Hopefully you speak some Spanish because I am too tired to translate it right now. A disclaimer: the reason it is so cheesy and cliche is because 1) this issue of the lit mag has a theme surrounding Hispanic culture in the US and 2) teachers love it woohoo.
Las voces de la gente hispana
añaden un tono distinto
a la canción que es el espirito americano.
Cada voz cuenta una historia
que es triste, alegre y resiliente,
y las diferencias en las hispanas
son lo que hace las voces hermosas.
Estas voces se combinan
con las voces de otros inmigrantes
y eso es que hace grande a Estaos Unidos.
Also, I thought of three more goals that would be nice to add to my growing list:
- Listen to more podcasts
- Take an online course through one of those rad websites
- Sew to your heart’s content
Lastly, ya girl’s last official day of high school is tomorrow! After that I just come back Thursday for one last exam.
