Anyone that pays attention to the news will already know about this, but Catalonia is having an election today that could be very consequential.
On a related note, one of the reasons I haven't really given Catalan much attention (besides a general liking of it) is that it isn't officially spoken by a country besides Andorra. Were it to have been a country since I was born I could see myself having learned it before a large number of other Romance languages, since it's the one with the most in common with all the others. Like the Slovak of Romance languages, or a naturally occurring pan-Romance IAL.
That said, since I've never been to Spain or Catalonia I'll just refrain from giving a preference on today's outcome.
