I think you should keep the limit, but consider how best to use that space more effectively. Word limits aren't time limits, the point is to write a story that works within those constraints - and that usually involves a lot of editing afterwards.
Lol, yeah, I plan to keep most of the language talk - but if I can get rid of the (in my mind) silly phrases about grey school symbols and all that, along with some of the foreign phrases, it will be a little better.
Well, the latter part is up to you (and I think it might confuse the shit out of people if you just drop in on them) but yeah, leave one art here and I will tell you one thing that could be improved about it. P:
