Yesterday, I finished the final episode of Burn Notice so now there’s an opening in my list of “things I let myself be emotionally invested in” that needs to be filled.

4 different streaming services and I still don’t know what to watch.

Respect feels better than love.

asks:
I read on one of the asks about language resources. I was wondering about websites or resources where to learn the Nahualt language since I found out my Great-Grandmother spoke nothing but that language. Any ideas?

But I mostly just look through the ‘Nahuatl’ tag, it has a lot of useful tips on pronunciation and such. My father knows the language better than me though so I usually get some help from him, mostly because sometimes the words are not spelled correctly and that can make all the difference. - mod M

*If you go in the Nahuatl tag, you have to know a decent amount of Spanish because it’s mainly Spanish to Nahuatl.

I know a university course like this is very expensive but maybe someone out there is interested.  Financial aid is available according to the website. The professor John Sullivan has previously taught an online course through the University of New Mexico Chicana & Chicano Studies Program as recently as Spring 2013. There may be other opportunities out there in the future so keep an eye out.  If nothing else, there is a short list of course materials after the jump.  IDIEZ seems like a very cool organization as well. Here’s the info for the class:

Intensive Nahuatl Language Summer 2014 at Yale University

The Council on Latin American and Iberian Studies (CLAIS) at Yale University, in partnership with IDIEZ (the Instituto de Docencia e Investigación Etnológica de Zacatecas, Mexico) offer the opportunity to study Classical and Modern Nahuatl at the beginning, intermediate and advanced levels in a summer intensive course that will be held at Yale in Summer 2014. 

Dates of Course:  June 23 – August 1, 2014.

La Mano De La Paz

I got my fam over and they just kicked me out the crib cause we were watching Pocahontas 2 and they thought yelling out “traitor!” every time Pocahontas was on the screen was scaring the kids.

I experienced my first hypnagogic hallucinations last night (which I had to google to even know what it was)

Images were flashing in my mind, I felt like I was having a seizure and at one point I was even munching on someone’s butt. (Thankfully, I was only hallucinating.)

I’m not even gonna front, it was legit scary, I can’t remember the last time I felt fear like that.

I need to stop eating ice cream and microwave burritos before bed.
