I finally volunteered to read my diary in Portuguese class. It was really scary. Before my teacher projected my Portuguese diary on the screen, she said (in Portugues), "Michelle is my only 321 student who is not a return missionary. Whenever I think of her, I think of courage. She is brave to be in this advanced grammar class with a bunch of return missionaries." I almost started crying, and my eyes filled with tears, because I feel so discouraged and stupid in this class. I am meeting with her on Monday. I am going to ask her what she would suggest me to do to survive this class.
