I used to be a mediocre student. Now that I study for fun, I'm getting better at it.

comment Differences betwen “ahí”, “allí”, y “allá”
@Cadenza: Well, as for when certain words can or can't be used, that's not very precise, for a language evolves all the time according to how people use its words. Personally, I would not use allí to refer to a very distant place, and I think it is incorrect to do so, but one thing is the meaning and use intended by the dictionary and the other is the one you find in daily usage. Maybe allí is used to refer to distant places by other people, but that doesn't make it correct.

comment Translating “to wind up (doing something)”
It seems to me as a native speaker of Spanish. @jrdioko asked about the most common translation and I answered with what I think is the most common translation. It might not be so in Spain, but that doesn't rule it out as the most common use in general. "It seems to me" expresses generality, not uncertainty, and that's why I did not specify a geographic area.
