Four more days. Just for more days and then I’m free. I can’t wait to come back here.

Hello Hello Hello everyone. I am here for my first journal since I began studying Korean again. How have you all been? I have been well. Studying has been going well too. I still feel like I am lacking in my studies but I am plan on getting better. If you have been a reader for a while then you would know that I have a serious procrastination problem especially when I have too much time on my hand and right now because school is over and I’m not working so I have a lot of time on my hands right now. However all of that will be changing soon, because summer school will be starting soon and I will be working. So, hopefully with all that happening I will manage my time a lot better and will be dedicating more of it to learning Korean. Unfortunately, when I began writing this yesterday (hence the date), there was a terrible thunderstorm in my area so I had to postpone posting this. There was other things I wanted to say but I don’t remember them right now. It’s also beginning to thunder as I finish this right now. So with that being said I am going to end this right now and begin working on translating as much as I can. If I remember any of the things I wanted to say I will put them in a separate blog post and translate that as well. Until then, I hope you all have a great day and happy studying! See you next time!

오래만에요!!!

Hello Hello Hello everyone! 우ㅏㅏ 오래만에요. 먼저 미안하고 싶어요.  I apologize to you all because it has almost been a year without decent content from me. There was a couple post here and there but none of them were anything special. I think the majority of them were empty promises and rant. So, because of that I am sorry. Also, I am sorry to myself. It almost been a year since I have formally studied Korean. I have always said how happy studying Korean and other languages makes me and unfortunately I have not been able to do that since about June of last year, so I am sorry to myself too. Now that I have gotten that out of the way…..

I am back !!! YAY! I am so excited to be studying again. For the first time in a very long time I have written something in Korean.  It felt so good to be learning again and I’m very excited to be doing it again. Since I am just getting back into the swing of things I am taking it pretty slow. Yesterday and today I have been searching and looking at all the resources I have to begin studying again. Last night I made lists of all the learning resources that I think would help me out and this morning I wrote down a very small vocab list of 20 words just to get my mind moving. Over the next month or so, I hope to have developed some goals and fool proof ways to achieve those goals and get a concrete study schedule and of course when I get those things I will be posting it here. Until I get those things, I will be reviewing and revisiting all of my old notes and really just trying to get back to where I was before I had to take this break. Also this time around I hope to actually be able to SPEAK. I don’t think I ever told you all about my traumatic speaking incident in Korea (probably because I tried to purge it from my own memory), but everything would have been fine if I just had the confidence to speak. I had all the knowledge I was just too scared to speak. I never want to experience that again, so this time around I will be practicing everything a lot more. I hope to never have to take a break like this again and have to write a whole apology letter like I’ve just done. So on that note I will end this post here and officially continue my language journey and I hope you all stick around to see it.  다음에 봐요!

Paris still seems to forget she has a blog. I think she is forgetting Korean as well. Ugh.. Just two more weeks you guys…. Two more long weeks of suffering. Im gonna make it. Im gonna do well. And then I will be back at this because I miss it so much. Please wait for me.

(P.S.if everything goes well then I will have some really exciting news. But im nervous because its not looking good but it will be okay)

 

Paris should stop forgetting she has a blog. Paris should start posting more often. Paris really needs to study more. If Paris set realistic goals she would probably do better, but since she doesn’t know how to do that she is struggling. Paris will do a post some time before the end of next week. My goal is to have a realistic goal.

I was writing a journal about SHINee but it made me sad so I don’t want to continue writing it… I am proud of myself for writimg it though. My writing is still very bad in Korean but if I keep at this, it can only get better. Now I have to write an entire journal again since I wont finish the one I started. I will write a happier one this time.

I’ve come to you all with a question. Should I make a Korean studyblr? If you have been here since the beginning then you would know that there is a reason I didn’t make a tumblr in the first place. As of right now I don’t remember that reason, so I hope it wasn’t that important. There is this other Korean Studyblr that has really inspired me and now I really want to make one. I don’t know if this will actually help me but I feel like creating one will keep me accountable for my studies because I believe I will have some what of a bigger following ( studyblrs have become very popular). If I do make the Tumblr it would not take away from this blog at all, if anything I will probably post a lot more, some of it will just be the same content as the Tumblr. Hmm should I do it? I think I will but I will give it some thought before I make a decision, perhaps visit my original reason for not making it originally.

This week has been…

This week has been… hard.  I am thanking God that tomorrow is Sunday, so that I can start a new week that is hopefully better than this week. Though the last 4 weeks for me have been pretty stressful, but as I’ve said before I wont talk about it unless I can say it in Korean because this is a Korean learning blog and not a journal. However, I am here to talk about my lack of studying this week and the cram studying I will do after this post is posted.

Last Sunday night, I planned out what I would study the next day. I believe it was something along the lines of revisiting conjunctions, writing a couple sentences about my family, and doing the self- introduction video that I have put off for the longest time. Though I wasn’t excited about the intro video, I was very excited to study after such a long time. I had plans to study everyday this week, with lessons feeding off of the one I planned for Monday, until I woke up to some very sad news Monday morning. I am not going to go into depth about what happened, but in short one of my favorite artists from my all time favorite group, Kim Jonghyun had passed. Again I wont go into depth but I basically owe my entire interest into Korea and Korean to SHINee. They were the first kpop group that I found out about and got in to, so they are the reason I started learning Korean, made this blog, went to Korea, and plan to go to Korea again. Long story short because of such sudden, heart-breaking news I did not study at all this week and I’m really upset about it. I am hoping that I will be able to study properly this week and I really hope that this is a better week for everyone. My prayers are going out to everyone affected by this and mental health problems in general.

I’m going to stop this post now because I could go on and on about everything that happened this week but I chose to keep this post relatively short and attempt to start healing. That being said I am about to do what I had planned for Monday and hopefully some more. I am also going to try and pick out a new book to study with. Alright everyone 안녕!

 

 

종현 소고했어요! 여러분 수고했요. 사랑해요.

Hello.. How are you

Hello everyone. I hope you sang the title of this post in Adele’s voice. Oh my gosh its been so long I’ve missed this. I’ve missed giving updates, procrastinating giving updates, studying. I have missed it all. All this talk about missing this, but where the heck have I been? Well long story short… College happened. As you all know right after my trip to Korea, I went straight into preparing for college and then leaving for college and unfortunately I have not been able to open a TTMIK book or HTSK since then. ITs been a really long time since I’ve been able to study Korean and I’m quite upset about it. Though I could give an extensive list of all the other reasons I have not been able to study. I shall spare everyone reading this. So lets talk about the future instead! As soon as my first semester is over and I pass French with a decent enough grade. I will be diving head first into studying Korean. I have high hopes for myself this year and I know that I can achieve them if I put the effort into them. Also I’m pretty sure my school has some type of resources that can help me.

I think that is all I had to say for right now. I really just needed to prove (to myself) that I still have that same passion for learning Korean as I used to. So I shall see y’all later!

 

P.S. Hopefully I will have good news to share as it gets closer to the end of the school year so keep your fingers crossed.
