Kismet is turkish for "fate."
For FOREVERRRRRRRRR I've been wanting to learn Turkish. FOR-EV-ER. It's not a super common language, though, and not taught in a lot of schools. But because I've seen a plethora of Rosetta Stone advertisements lately, I decided that maybe, just maybe, they'd have Turkish.
THEY DO!!!!! Rosetta Stone is BALLIN!
(well, and so is the actual artifact in history, but I'm talkin' bout the program here).
I'm thrilled! This is not just about learning a language to know a language, this is about communicating with my family overseas, this is about my background--something that is part of me and something I am extremely proud to be a part of.
And, you know, then I can talk smack about people in a language that hardly anyone knows in the U.S., mwahahaha! *cough* Kidding, of course.
