Today's accomplishment: with the help of a bunch of grammar references, Google Translate, and squinting at my Language Drops collection, I've written a few sentences in #Tagalog to a stranger!
I've been trying to learn, very slowly, since May.
The stranger in question is my AirBNB host for my upcoming stay in San Francisco, who is bilingual. (I also included the English translation of what I intended to say, of course.)

Kumusta! Dadalaw ako sa mga kaibigan ko, at sasalita ako nasa "Roguelike Celebration". Ito ang pangtatlo kong pagbisita sa San Francisco; nasasabik ako! (Ang aking inay at tatay ay Pilipino; gusto kong matuto ng Tagalog, pero mahirap. Sana iyong maintindihan! 😀 )

Every time it's in the news, I'm reminded of how that smug a-hole Mama Mayer shafted her working-mom employees. Despite the buckets of virtual feminist blood shed on every feminist board ever over moms vs. non-moms in the workplace, I don't think on the most productive day of my CF life I could've been 1/1,000th as petty & mean to working parents as she was. :P
That said, if you like what I do, I'd love it if you'd consider supporting me monthly via patreon:
thank you in advance
