The goddess Frigg, curser of unfavorable language test results

Well, in a fit of impatience I called tamale Walton today and found out that, unfortunately, I did not pass my Turkish language exam.  I get to try again in 6 months, which is precisely what I will do.

When I started this whole thing, I was convinced that, with enough time and enough attention to detail, I could teach myself Turkish in the relative comfort and thrift of my own home.  Looks like I will have to amend my timeline and/or my notions of whether or not I require immersion classes.  Probably both.

So it goes.  Setbacks or no, I'm in this thing to win it.
