je ne sais pas

18 janvier 2017.
aujourd'hui j'ai décidé à écrire en français sur mon blog chaque semaine.
today I have decided to write in French on my blog every week.

For 2017 I made a sporadic goal to write on my blog every week. When I say I miss blogging and writing, I really mean it. I miss writing for fun. I miss not having the suffocating pressures of deadlines and page limits and pre-determined topics guiding my writing. I miss being happy with what I've written.
Obviously I've already failed at my New Years resolution. Two weeks have flown by with nothing to show for it. But I have a project that has been developing in my brain for awhile now.
I've been studying French at school and on my own for a long time. It is my passion and is something I want to work with the rest of my life. I have wanted to do something that will grow both my writing and my French skills. Something that will push me to go out of my comfort zone, to study more vocabulary and sentence structures and grammar. But it is also something that will push me to blog and write the way I've wanted to for a long time.

Every week I plan to write a sentence or two (maybe a paragraph if I get ambitious), with the translation. Some days I might write more in addition in English with something I've been reflecting on or want to talk about.
I'm still thinking of how the details will be.

Il n'est pas parfait. It won't be perfect. I expect to make many mistakes (I hope no native French speaker or any of my professors find this). It will also be boring and mediocre at times since my current skills limit my writing. But I'm excited to be able to share this journey.


À bientôt.


  1. I am very much looking forward to this! Bonne chance!

  2. Writing in French is an interesting take for blogging. It's something that is quite difficult. I've tried to do this once on a post and tried to write in Filipino, which is my ethnicity, but because I've grown up mainly speaking English and have been surrounded by it since I was three, I had little idea what I was writing. xD I really hope you succeed in your goal, Hannah! I'll be cheering you on the whole way through.

    xoxo Morning
    Ups & Downs

    1. It is definitely difficult and that's why I want to do it. Writing is one of the toughest aspects of learning a language, at least for me, and I'm excited to stretch my abilities. I can imagine trying to write in Filipino is difficult too.
      Thank you so much for your sweet comment, Morning. :)

  3. I am so incredibly jealous of your French abilities!! Wow! And I'm very excited to see a post from you in my feed again <3

    1. Haha merci, Olivia. I'm not anywhere near perfect, but thank you. :) I miss reading your posts too.

  4. I think this the loveliest idea. Keep it up!!

    1. Haha thank you. I've already sort of failed, but I'm going to try to do it as much as I can. :P :)
