One of the dreamiest swims out there, and the rest of the world thinks so too. Swipe to see the reality of how crowded this place gets. And they say this is the slow season. So to get a shot we wait for a moment between tour busses and still have to edit out a few people.
Why trying to speak the local language when you’re travelling matters
It's a matter of courtesy.
It shows you
a) recognize that not all countries speak your language and you respect their language and cultural identity
b) aren't so arrogant or imperialistic as to expect them to speak your language when you don't speak theirs
c) consider the other person's comfort important and are putting their ease above your own (which is particularly important if you're asking someone for a favour like directions or local tips; if they're taking the time to help you the least you can do is try to give them the least amount of work possible)
Even if you totally butcher the language and they take pity on you and switch to your language, the fact that you even bothered to try makes a world of difference
It takes a lot more courage to try speaking a language you don’t know at all than speaking in one you’re vaguely familiar with, so if anything, the fact you suck at the language but put yourself out there anyway gains you extra points, not less.
So I just saw @therealjacksepticeye‘s tour How Did We Get Here? here in New Orleans. It honestly was amazing. I will not give away the contents but I will say it is worth seeing if you haven’t bought a ticket for it yet, then do so!
The connectivity between Jack and his audience was quite captivating, and it really made me feel better about myself as a struggling artist who’s wondered? Where do I go from here? What do I do next?
If those are questions you have, then please this is a show for you. It’ll open up your eyes to many thought processes that didn’t seem possible to reach that goal you have in your life. No matter the struggle...
I know I have learned something, and many a word Jack said today I will take to heart. Because in the end...we are all human.
i learned that one of Oklahoma's most notable landmarks came into being, literally by accident. A cement truck rolled over on its side on Winganon Road years ago, and because the mixer was full of concrete and too heavy to move, it has since been turned into a faux NASA space capsule by artists (x)
