No, I haven’t forgotten about all the book reviews I should be doing.
Actually it’s not that I haven’t been blogging. I did type out a few entries during commute time (whole entries) even, before deciding that I didn’t want to upload them and then proceed to wipe everything out. ?
So work has been amazing so far (uhh is there such work?), well, insofar as I am pretty happy still.
So all’s good.
Just the other day, I was the moderator for a session at a tech event ?. Great experience, happy to connect with startups again and do a little part to promote Korean technology and products.
Have always wanted to be a connecting point of some sorts between Korea and SG, liaising with parties on both sides. So I kind of have my dream job now.
I’m getting so immersed in Korean and the language has become a default mode. For a period of time, I used MS office in Korean ?.
But the strange thing is that my confidence in speaking in Korean has taken a hit instead of becoming better. I think it’s because I’m surrounded by such competent bilinguals everyday that I feel like I’m lacking instead. The more I try to be conscious of my words and pronunciation, the worse it gets and haha vicious cycle.
Need to break out of it!
But yeah, I’ve become a faster reader in Korean. (:
Outside of work, I’m obsessed with 穿越 novels (lol) and hence I’m reading a lot in Chinese. Usually I try to avoid reading in Korean outside of work because… too much ah. Hahaha.
But in the end, what suffered is my Japanese. Katakana? Uhhhh.
I cannot lose whatever Japanese proficiency I have. Need to do something about it. 😡
Language learning is not easy. The number of hours I spent on Japanese, while not as crazy as the time I spent on Korean (8 years of my life, being in touch with it almost everyday), is still significant. It would be such a pity if I end up forgetting most of it.
Need to find that spark again. The interest and motivation to learn.
I really need to make better use of my after-work hours.
The 2 hours.
On a happier note, happy 8th anniversary to my love!
Ya my blog.
I love my blog.
Although I missed the actual anniversary ?.
