Productive summer ahead(?)

It’s been a while since I’ve updated but I just thought I’d like to share some 빅뉴스 (big news) with all of you:  Two weeks ago, I officially graduated from college!  While all of my friends were rejoicing over the last lecture, last class, last exam of college I was stressing out about giving the commencement speech in front of about a 1,000 graduates and their families.  I actually made an audio post about my graduation ceremony and my experience being the commencement speaker, so if you’re interested, check it out!  And I’ll just try not to think about the fact that my speech and a recording of the ceremony will be posted for posterity on our college website. ><

Anyway, this summer will probably be the longest break I’ll have in a while (in fact, let me just say goodbye to the concept of “summer break” once I start graduate school).  Since I start classes in mid-September, that gives me about four glorious months of freedom.  Things are a little complicated at home so although it would have been nice to go on a trip, I think that won’t be happening.  But no worries, I have a lot of grand plans for the summer (keh).

  1. Actually study Korean.  Watching dramas and listening to K-pop doesn’t count.
  2. Watch K-dramas without feeling guilty
  3. Learn how to play the guitar
  4. Learn how to cook (ughhh)
  5. Work out (double ughhhh)
  6. Become a better driver (I hate driving)
  7. Attend white-coat ceremonies!
  8. Hang out with friends
  9. Waste time and shamelessly fangirl on tumblr
  10. Update Lang-8
  11. Update this blog!!
Yeah, life’s good.^^

  1. Congratulations! Enjoy your well deserved break :)
    But why don’t dramas and K-pop count as studying? :P No seriously, I personally learned a huge deal of vocabulary (and grammar + listening skills too) thanks to them!
    (Lovely voice by the way!)

    • Aw, thanks! I sound different in real life though haha. Well, I guess K-pop/dramas do count as studying but I figured I need to study more actively with a book in order to retain stuff better. I tend to learn more by reading anyway.^^
