    Only when you stop stopping your life can you begin to start starting it.

    Dammit, the most disappointing and discouraging thing about listening is that I still do NOT hear some words EVEN though I have them transcribed before my eyes!

    Don't worry too much. It's really fast and the first few words are slurred. I had to listen to it a couple of times to figure out what she's saying.

    I just watched it and she is speaking VERY quickly. I agree, this is a hard one. I would not worry too much about this one.
    I only speak two languages, English and bad English.

    You sure it wasn't "swab"?
