sorrow and something i'll probably always long for
August 20, 2013
I posted in that greek ask thing that the skill i’d love to learn instantly is Tagalog.
As a person with nld whose no.1 means of understanding, engaging, and conceptualising the world is language
when i was you (maybe 8) i wanted to learn Tagalog. But. My dad couldn’t teach me because he sucks at teaching and has no patience
Tagalog sounds like music to me
i resent so much that english. and that my mom managed to get me to learn her language better/earlier. my mind is colonised by two different languages.
Tagalog sounds like home to me
many of my cousins can’t speak it but they at least understand it. they don’t feel like a foreigner when they are with their own family
Tagalog is comforting to me
it resonates in my soul
and i yearn for it
