Learning French once and for all!

Hello, duolingo community! Ive been learning French in secondary school and highschool, so at least for 8 back to back years. Ive solo tried to learn it practicing and solving exercises, but in faculty the interest for it died out. In the 2nd year, however, I had something like a revelation. I was reviewing the list of compulsory reads for one of my next seminaries and Ive seen one article in French. Because it was the shortest I decided to try and read it. I went to the library, took it and started reading. I couldnt believe it! I was understanding much of it. Maybe because my first language is Romanian, maybe because of my 8 years of French. I understood most of it! I was so glad! 3 more years passed in which my only pursuit regarding French was reading a kids novel. However, I didnt understand much of it and I was sad because of this.

Now I have decided that I must learn this language. I cant wait any longer. The right time is now. Ok, Ive done the placement test on duo and Ive answered to like half of the questions correctly. However, I didnt test outor something like that. No problem, I have started from the beginning again and I wont stop until I will have at least B2 at reading. Bonne chance to everybody reading this! (its a random post with random thoughts, but I wanted to share all these with you)
