This was written in early 2014:
I feel like an idiot. I’ve been thinking about this for days now, and I can’t get past it. I speak to my students all the time in French, and so many, so many words come up in our classes. I mean, a lot of words. So many flowers.
But, there are so many people who worry that I may not be covering certain words. They exhibit a concern, an odd concern that doesn’t feel right to me, that, unless they tell me what words to teach, I won’t get them in. Trust me, I will get them in. Stop sticking your head in my door.
