Je suis un chat.
That means I am a cat in French.
I was taught that when I was, ooh, lets see, maybe 11 decades
I studied French until I was 18, in fact I was quite dazzling at it.

If you take the time to look at yourself, learn something new, you can
wrestle back the reins of your life and take your life in whatever
instruction you choose.
Teach yourself and reap the rewards.
You might not have been taught it at school, but by jiminy you may teach
So why *arent* we taught self-esteem at school?
