    Some of my favorite words: Sapient, sano scientia scio scisco. And yes Latin is great. I had four years worth in my high school, which is from 15 years of age to 18, 19 years of age. Words and their origin’s fascinate me. Keep it up. Yey.

    I’ve learned before that Latin is teached in schools in the US. Not untill about right now has it been introduced to the Swedish schools. I wish it were around in my school days!

    I took 7 years of Latin (in the US). But then, I was home schooled.

Hi and welcome. This is my journal where I can find a peace of mind. Perhaps teach myself something. I escape here to unwind, cry or complain, or share my joy. Hope you enjoy your stay.

The current mood of mixedpearl at


A 27 year old womans attempt to understand herself and the rest of the world. Difficult to explain myself with only a few words, you decide from the words in my journal. I suppose I am trying to find my strength through this so I think I am a bit confused, I'm quite emotional and very loving though I at times may seem very cold.
