10 In Japanese learning journey (:/ Korean learning journey (:/ Others / General

멍 때리다

In case you are wondering what that means, it means spacing out – which is more often than not my state of mind.

And more so recently. Haven’t been feeling the best ever since I came back from Korea and my mum too ): I got a huge scare the other day and realized how fragile life is.

But somehow that realization isn’t spurring me to do more in life – in fact I’m just very lethargic. (May be the medicine-induced drowsiness speaking)

Have been pushing my friends away and hiding in my own corner again. But I really don’t have the energy to deal with small talk these days. I just wanna space out when I’m home.

I’m so ashamed to say that I’ve kinda stopped learning Japanese or having any Japanese input :/

Sigh.

As for Korean, I still get regular input via 고교처세왕 (yoo jinwoo!!!!) and It’s ok it’s love. Seriously, I wasn’t planning to watch the latter but I happened to catch part of ep 1 in korea and i was immediately intrigued. The plot somehow resonates with me… Maybe it’s because my mind isn’t all that sound either.

Other than that I’m not doing much for Korean either. :/

Been very dizzy these few days and an old problem is surfacing again ): I’m probably gonna disappear for a short while until this spell passesc.

It’s sad how I’m starting to fear sleep again. I need the lights on, say hi to higher electricity bills :/

Another sad thing – I’ve somehow, inexplicably developed an allergic reaction to prawns (and likely other seafood). I’m not very sure what’s going on but I’ve had enough scares and no longer willing to test out the hypothesis. Which means a no seafood diet for the time being.

WHICH IS TERRIBLE.

I love prawns and I eat them for many of my meals.

I have no idea what to eat these days.

Double sigh.

    Hi Shanna, I’ve been a silent reader of your blog for a long time and believe me you are an inspiration! The times that I’ve felt down in the dumps, especially related to Korean learning, your blog has helped me many times. So I want to contribute my two cents. Please don’t feel sad or upset ’cause whatever it is remember the saying ‘This too shall pass’. Please don’t be sad. Things will get better soon. 화이팅 하십시요!!

    안녕하세요ㅋㅋ

    한국어를 처음 배우기 시작했을 때부터 이 블로그를 보고 있었어요. 힘내세요 샨나 씨 (혹시 한국 이름이 있으세요?ㅋㅋㅋ). 저도 요즘 멍 때리는 것 같은데 주로 독학으로 한국어를 배우고 요즘 힘든 일을 당해서 샨나 씨의 미음에 공감해요. 이 블로그 보시는 분 모두에게 영감을 주는 사람이잖아요.

    Hey Shanna, I wish you the best of luck and good health!

    Personally I am pretty sure that you’ll be able to find tasty food, I’m Vegetarian/Vegan and I got used to it too. 😉 On a more positive note – maybe your allergic reaction is merely due to the medication that you have to take right now? Or it was – though it sounds scary – due to the origin, i.e. processing of the prawns… Either way, I’m sure it will get better! 🙂
