Has it already been 12 years already?! This blog literally saw me through my twenties (and more). It saw me through a lot of ups and downs, even though they may not always be recorded down here. Took some time to read through all the past blog anniversary posts and I only have one word to describe how I feel: Grateful.
I’ve said it before but I would say it again. This blog has provided me a space to really be myself and it has brought me so much motivation in my language learning journey and in life in general. I’ve connected to many of you through this space, whether virtually or in person, and I’m always grateful for each and every single connection. People did come and go, but I’m glad the space is still here, and hopefully we will reconnect in time to come.
The past few years have been.. for a lack of a better description… really really busy. Which led to the neglect of the blog (and the absence of the 10th, 11th blog anniversary posts). Lost time can never come back and while I do feel a twinge of regret at not being conscientious enough, I take it as a lesson learnt that I should never ever abandon the things that truly make me happy. So I’m back on the blog and I feel that I’ve been doing a good job so far.
Took a trip down memory lane by reading some old entries and I realised that I have been writing Korean textbook reviews since 2010!!! TEN YEARS. Let me pause and take that in. TENNNN years. hahaha. The first ever textbook review is here (if you are interested). After that wow moment, I am also reminded at how I’ve only written 1 review in 2018 and 2019 LOL. The lost years indeed. 🙂 I love writing textbook reviews so I’ll definitely be on this again.
Hangukdrama started out a space for gushing over Korean dramas but over time it has turned into a space for me to just talk about all things languages. I’m glad that 12 years down the road, I’m still very much in love with Korean and Japanese (although not without downs), and I’m even starting Russian and Thai. ♡
I’m not sure where the next few years will bring me, but I hope to be here, and I hope that everyone reading this will still be. People do come and go, but I hope that our connection here stays.
Do drop me a comment if you are still reading this, just a 🙂 will do too!
