Hello everyone, I should probably stop starting every blog post with “hi it’s been a long time” or something along these lines. 😛 Please tell me that blogs are not dead and there are people who still read them. I love Instagram and other social media where short updates are the norm, but sometimes I just want to have a verbal diarrhoea of sorts, and pen down my incoherent thoughts. And a break from all those curated pics!
It’s August already and I always marvel at how time flies and how little (seemingly) I have accomplished – personal, career, languages and all. (And yet I have been so busy!)
On the longstanding question on whether I should do “something more” with my language skills, I have no answer to that. In fact, I learnt that the more I obsess over it, the unhappier I become and the less motivated I become. So the past year was spent embracing the fact that I have (so far) chosen a path where I don’t really get to use my language skills and the whole point of the decision was so that I can go beyond my comfort zone and gain new experiences. BUT. I also lament the fact that my language skills are getting worse due to the disuse. I can never be satisfied, can I?
Well, then it’s time to do something about it.
Recently, I’ve been pretty good with my routine of doing something related to Korean every day. 🙂 I’ve been reading articles on 경제 and 정치 and they are getting easier!
The next thing to do is to get back to blogging regularly. I know I no longer write informative posts, please bear with me! 🙂
