Sometimes, in learning and using a new language, the line between pass and fail is quite blurred. For example, today was filled with language failures. I couldn't properly pronounce the words I was trying to use when I called for package delivery and I had a hard time understanding what the man was saying back. Then, I went to get some dinner and tell someone something. I couldn't put together a sensible sentence.
...On the other hand, I made a phone call in Japanese this evening
and went out, ordered dinner, and delivered the message I intended to deliver!
As you can see, it's a pretty blurry line.
This photo was specially included to show that my nails have reverted to their proper teacher state. Although, technically, it IS 夏休み now.... (summer vacation).
