Before coming to Korea people often asked me why to do so. Its been 1.5 months since the journey started and I still haven’t figured out. Sometimes I like to think this journey will lead to something greater, but chances are it will not. I’m not scared if it doesn’t. Should I be? Every now and then this question circles my head. Is it hard to see everyone’s life kept on going while mine seems to be paused? -Yes it is, but at the same time I have given myself a chance must of us never give ourselves. The chance to let go everything and see what comes next… Its easy to get lost when a projects are long (yes I consider this journey thing a project. (I will post my mental map of coming to Korea later on….)) because of that I have decided to “write some goals in stone”.
- Learn Korean -> I consider important to be able to communicate efficiently.
- Study for GRE/GMAT -> As time passes it becomes more difficult to overcome laziness and study. Because of this I should take GRE/GMAT no later than September.
- Upon receiving GRE/GMAT scores. Apply (once more) to 2 Korean U. and 2 other U. for graduate program.
- Have fun. If I have come this far to do what I want then I should make the best of this trip.
So far thats it. With this goals in mind I must stop procrastinating and start becoming more productive !!!
Just a side note. I been struggling to retain all the vocabulary that I’m supposed to. In a further effort to practice I wanted to get a korean keyboard so I’m able to type faster and become less frustrated. Keyboard where not expensive but when I found this stickers (3,000 KRW which is 5 times cheaper than the cheapest keyboard)I thought it would be a nice addition so I cut them accordingly so my keyboard keys still light (:D).
Time to do some korean typing baby!!!
