It is a rare day in this modern world when we feel like we actually have some spare time. Many attribute it to the fact that the lines between work and leisure are blurred with the increase in portable technologies that always leave us on call in a way. This can be both a positive and a negative. Sure, it is convenient to have the ability to take care of personal and professional business on the go. On the other hand, you can begin to feel like the hamster on the wheel who just keeps going around and around but never truly stops long enough to take anything in.
For those of us at ASLdeafined, we see how this can both help and hinder your sign language learning. If you have a few minutes to fill you might be inspired to learn a new ASL word or continue your progress with one of our lessons. Then again, you might just want to let your mind rest a minute between other tasks. We see both perspectives and strive to create content that can fit varying needs in this fast-paced world. The main thing we hope you take away from it is a sense of fun and accomplishment.
So you didn’t find the time you thought you would to move forward in your learning this week? Give yourself a break. There is always time to learn something new. Try not to let your goals guilt you into stopping completely. If necessary, just readjust! We are here to support you in any way we can, even if it is just cheering you on when you feel rushed.
