Sometimes I feel ‘Radical’
Especially given where I’m from
I wonder what being home is going to be like
Will people stay away from me because of my radical beliefs
Or will they embrace me and my thoughts
Admiration or crush?
Can’t believe I still struggle with this question.
That moment when people ask me what language I am more comfortable writing in or speaking in and they are surprised it is not Spanish. It’s not a huge problem but I’m surprised that they are surprised. I grew up writing in English and thinking in English. I have been educated in an English language only school setting. I’ve never been formally taught to write in Spanish…not until high school …and even then I didn’t learn anything.
I’ve taught myself most of my writing skills.I still need to learn a bunch of grammar rules in spanish.
Ah I feel only people who are raised bilingual may understand.
At one point I was better at French than spanish. Yeah in spanish I can get a sense of what sounds right or wrong, but my writing mainly depends on this sense…
