Sam speaking Latin will NEVER not be hot
There’s something utterly enchanting about doing Latin translations late into the night. The utter silence of the witching hour, switching on the ceiling lamp seems to be an act akin to blasphemy so you work in the warm glow of your desk lamp. You’d light candles if you had any proper ones. The only sound is the soft scratch of pen on paper. You could summon demons with a single misspelling; the sea of possibilities. Your heart soars and drops simultaneously when you check the answers and find you’ve done all the exercises correctly. No demons appear. Next time, perhaps.
I got a MF 87% on my first ever latin assessment!!! Crushing it already so i’m enjoying my victory before my anxiety kicks in about the next one.

and ENVS assignments are all getting done today.
(i know i keep saying budgets but for real today i will finish it!)
having a hard time focusing today, gonna dial in now and get shit done.
the shit in question:
Where do you go, so cruel, without me? Am I left alone again?
what is up with latin’s grammar oh my
learning latin is so intriguing because like from day one it’s basically 101 ways to disembowel someone
like whenever someone asks like ‘oh how do you say how are you in latin?’ I’m like uhhh … sorry ma’am … we’re actually fresh out … could I interest you in the varying ways to call someone a bastard? the intricacies of roman politics? war tactics perhaps?
I just finished my first actual translation in Latin! It was an excerpt from Florus and I only moderately screwed it up. Can’t wait for the next one, and I can’t wait to improve.
