Mid Year Resolutions: Part 4

What? I'm still making more resolutions? Well, I'm still writing blog posts about new resolutions. I've really had these in my head for a while. Anyway, this should be the last "Mid Year Resolution" post I make.

Learn Mandarin

Hey! I'm supposed to be learning Teochew, not Mandarin! Well it turns out that knowing Mandarin makes it a lot easier to learn Teochew. The nice thing about trying to learn Mandarin is that there are SO many resources available so I don't have to put nearly as much effort into this. Right now I'm trying to do just a little bit of duolingo every day. Once I get past that, I'll move onto another Chinese learning app. It's kind of nice because it allows me to see what characters are the same between Mandarin and Teochew, and what characters are different.

Keep learning Teochew and improving my Teochew app

Don't worry, I haven't forgotten about this. I feel like I have so many things I want to accomplish, but this is really at the heart of it all. I still have so many big ideas for how to improve the app while learning things about programming along the way. Right now I'm trying to add ten new words each week. If I have time to make other enhancements to the app, I'll do that too.
