Something I wish I knew how to do

I’d like to be fluent in Spanish: read, write, converse.

If I’d applied myself in college–found someone to speak with–I could be. I could read and write it and had a good accent. One of my professors suggested a major.

But I didn’t develop an ear for the spoken language and had visions of failing every upper-level course I took.

I didn’t believe in myself.

Confidence–a severe lack of–made the difference.
