Missing Korea

For the first time I finally had the courage to browse through the photos I took during my last travel to Korea, Spring of last year. I’m decorating my 2015 planner and, of course, photos from Korea are a must!

Mixed emotions. Bittersweet.

The memories are killing me as I click through each and every folder. But the priceless happiness that I felt during those days also came rushing in. It’s as if I can feel, once again, the coolness of Korean Spring breeze brushing through my face and the warmth brought by the fluttering of my heart is embracing me. I’m glad that more than the pain and sadness, I’m feeling happy seeing the photos I took then.

It also makes me miss Korea so much and for the first time since I returned I felt the urge to go back. Korea Spring 2015, I can’t wait for you! How I wish I can once again witness spring in the next few months but I have to wait until 2015 – when I’m more ready. Just one year. I’ll be a good girl for the meantime.

I’m still halfway through my folders (Day 28 of 51). Sharing some of my favorite photos. When I’m more ready and have more time I’ll post more photos and anecdotes from my stay in Korea both on Summer of 2012 and Spring of 2013. I wish I’ve taken more photos – prettier photos ㅠㅠ 아쉽다!

100 Days to TOPIK

100 98 days to go before the next TOPIK exam!

Was originally planning on starting my preparation 2 days ago to make it a total of 100 days but have been sick since new year, thus wasn’t able to make any progress at all.

I’m still sick today and even the slightest movement really tires me out; however, since I no longer have fever and starting to get bored watching dramas all day long I’m starting to study Korean again today.

This time I’m going to use TOPIK Essential Grammar 150 Intermediate, TOPIK in 30 Days, 살아있는 한국어 and previous TOPIK papers.

I’m back! Happy New Year everyone!

I said goodbye to 2013 and hello to 2014 while at work – at the office. Doesn’t sound fun at all? But I’m fine with it. What’s important for me is finally I was able to say goodbye to 2013 – a one hell of a chaotic year for me; and being able to welcome 2014 with new hopes and new dreams. I’m thankful I survived last year despite everything I went through and I managed to face the new year despite my constant (and crazy) attempts to give up all these times.

I’m looking forward to a better year. I’m looking forward to what this new year will bring me. And I’m looking forward to a better version of me this year.

Cheers to 2014!
