As far as making sample sentences, I’ve been doing poorly ㅎㅎㅎㅎ I always forget about it…

I’m working 3 days this week with 2 closing shifts so I’ll probably get nothing else done ㅠ.ㅠ I’m really scared about closing shifts because I feel like I haven’t been trained enough. 잘할게~~! 화이팅~!!!!! ^^


Lots of Changes

For the last 2 weeks or so a lot has changed.

After my first interview on the 18th, I had my second interview on the 25th. I got the job which I was really happy about. It’s my first job ever. It’s at a clothing store so I don’t feel like I can really mess up ㅎㅎㅎ Then I had orientation and training on the 29th and 30th, which went fairly well. I made some big mistakes and totally cried on my first day but I won’t really be in trouble or anything. Training on the cash register was just a bit overwhelming and I cried in front of the woman who trained me. Still kinda embarrassed about that but eh, what can you do? For the next few days I wasn’t feeling so well because of exhaustion and being so overwhelmed. But I plan on taking relaxation pills so I’m not so anxious and overwhelmed on the next day I work. But I’m still in training pretty much.

Besides getting a job and trying not to have a panic attack, I also had to help my girlfriend move in with me. I’m totally excited she’s moving in but it’s a lot of physical work in order to rearrange the house better. This was happening at the same time I was feeling exhausted from work. So I still don’t have much energy, even though this was only 3 days ago.

Basically we have until Monday to rearrange the house because everyone starts the work week again and we’ll be too tired. I work on Tuesday and Wednesday this week. I’ll be training on the sales floor so I think I’ll be able to handle everything better. 

This is a really long and unnecessary post just to say that I haven’t done much in the area of Korean! ㅎㅎㅎ In the last few days, I’ve only been finishing up 총리와 나 and watching reality shows with 소녀시대 because I’m a new fan. (Side Note: I really liked 총리와 나 even though everyone was saying the ending was pointless. I really liked the ending because I feel like it was realistic. She needed her space to grieve, which he gave her and then she came back. I feel like the handshake was a symbol that they are both new people now and they need to get reacquainted. I honestly feel like that’s how I would react if it was me.) Everything has been with subtitles because I’m trying not to overestimate my level, which will just make me really frustrated.

Anyway, hopefully I can get back into doing a little each day after I get more settled at work and at home. The semester is starting soon which is kinda sucky! So I want to get things done before I get REALLY busy.

Drama Learning?

I’ll be honest and start this post by saying that I usually watch dramas for the hot actresses and actors… Sometimes plot… So I never really LEARN things from watching dramas. If anything I learn a few passing words ㅠㅠ

Since going on summer break, I’ve had alot of time. Usually I research random things instead of studying Korean. I think it’s because I’ve gotten into the habit of suppressing my motivation to learn Korean. ㅠㅠ During the semesters, I’m always worried about failing my classes if I get “distracted” by doing other things that aren’t a part of school work (Korean). It’s taken me a while to get back into the way I want things to be. But it’s slow-going. I don’t know if anyone else has had similar issues. If so, HELP! Anyway, I digress.

Back to the point. I thought that if I hear korean spoken I would be more motivated to start my studies again. I am. But I’ve been having trouble finding dramas to watch. I’m super picky with plots and actors.. So after looking for a few hours I settled on The Prime Minister and I. The plot kinda reminded me of The Sound Of Music, which I love!! I’m not a fan of Girls Generation so I thought I wouldn’t like Yoona. I was pleasantly surprised that I really enjoy her character and acting. I shouldn’t judge someone just because they are in a Kpop group.

I’m currently on Episode 2 and I plan on watching one episode a day, maybe more.. So while watching the first and second episode I learned 4 words/phrases. Which was surprising because I generally don’t pay attention. I learned:
The last two I knew how to say but I never knew how to spell and it took some work to find these words. It’s seems kinda pathetic now that I’m writing this…

But anyway, if you guys have any recommendations for dramas my boredom would appreciate it. Also, any suggestions to get motivation back after having to stifle it..

Hope everyone has a good Sunday!

Drama Day

Today I’m catching up on all of my dramas! There is like 4 or 5 that I’m half way through. I haven’t been able to watch any since my summer vacation so I’m looking forward to relaxing even if it’s for one day!

Little quote for Monstar:
“What good is it too make her laugh when she’ll always choose someone that will make her cry?”

The perpetual love triangles!! Gotta love ’em

Enjoy your Saturday!
