As I write and post comments I find it difficult to just word things out and express myself the way I want to.
I am ESL (English as a second language), my first language is Spanish and when writing something I stop, I pause, I think, use a dictionary for help/aid, I just want to make sure I don't say something wrong or word it out wrong for that matter...ugh, it is frustrating, and lets not forget the backward words...I am still confuse, is it toilet paper, or paper toilet? After so many years I still can't get it right! and yes I have somewhat of an accent *grins* and geeez there are words I have such a hard time pronouncing!
I hold back tons when writing a post afraid that my words will be taken out of context, maybe I said something the wrong way and offended someone - it has happened before and I've had to break it down the best possible way in order for the person(s) to understand what I was trying to say.
Punctuation...UGH! horrible - let's not even go there...hehe
I am starting to feel comfortable posting comments and little by little I notice I am expressing myself a bit better...I do have to elaborate more when writing; after I post I realize I forgot to add this, or I should have elaborated a bit more on that...
getting there, slowly but surely!!
