Wow a lot of responses! Koko, yes I was joking, and my apologies if I caused your mind to be effed! I was hoping the addition of three emoticons would've helped, but it all worked out.

No worries, I like seeing my log alive with conversation
Great, you'll fit right in! I guess people generally try to keep their responses specific to the person's TAC - encouragement, suggestions, questions, etc. But tangents happen every so often.
I haven't started yet, but I was hoping to start this week. I still have to figure out how to study two languages succesfully, and to get my material ready (more or less). I understand this will be trial and error at first, but I will probably alternate languages. If I manage to study every single day, that will be great.
When I first started juggling multiple languages, I created weekly goals for each language: finish lesson 1 in Duolingo for French, etc. I did this because time-based schedules don't work well for me. So I think a lot of what will work for you will be based on how you operate. If you are good with time-based schedules, try scheduling specific time slots for Turkish and Spanish. If you need a mix of time-based and goal-based, plan a specific goal for each time slot. Also, if this is your first time juggling two languages, I suggest trying to alternate days. At least for like the first 2 weeks or so. From my personal experience, like any muscle our brains become more capable with regular exercise. So once your brain gets used to doing 2 languages alternating days, then you could probably go up to doing both languages each day.
Again, thanks for all the advice. I haven't fully explored this forum yet but it seems like a treasure of ideas, advice and material.
You're welcome, and yeah the forum is great. In addition to the advice, material, etc., the community is pretty close and definitely helps a lot with staying motivated and encouraged.
PS. Regarding indents, I learned the rule that you either use an indent at the beginning of each paragraph when the paragraphs follow each other, or you add an extra line in between and don't indent. So doing both seems redundant to me. But that's probably one of my elementary school English teachers talking!
