Anyways in Germany, students are forced to look in-depth at the Holocaust. They have to read the Diary of Anne Frank (every year according to one German woman I talked to) in school.
What did I learn about America’s past in school? I learned that we celebrate Columbus day. The original illegal immigrant.
We brush slavery under the rug.
We pretend that we’re all equal now, with equal opportunity.
I get so tired of this.
NPR has a fantastic article on this subject here.
Also someone called my coworker a N**** in the gas station. It’s 2105 ladies and gents.
Here’s some Kizomba music. Heard it at the Salsa Explosion in Minneapolis.
Ridiculous how much I find myself learning once I actually am done with university and can get into what I’m really interested in.
- Learn/Relearn what I’ve forgotten about Hindi (have a lesson this Friday)
- Improve my Spanish (uhhhhh been lazy on that one).
- Learn how to lead Salsa (On1 for now, On2’s gonna be a challenge)
- Become an Intermediate Hip Hop Dancer BECAAAAAUSE (DRUMROLL)
My friend and I (or at LEAST I, considering I’ve rarely been able to get at people for travel commitments)
are going to Urban Dance Camp Summer 2016.
It’s in Lörrach, Germany and HELLA expensive, but I think I need this. yuh. I’ve decided not to travel anywhere unless I can dance on the regular in a studio. (Or salsa congresses/ whate’)
