Uhh. I guess I shall just keep the part where I lament about the passing of time (last entry almost 2 months ago!) and the lack of time. Because, what’s new?
The past 1 hour has been the happiest I’ve been in the entire week, simple because I finally have some time to myself + enough motivation to sit in front of the desktop and read a bit in Korean. 🙂 The first condition is already quite hard to fulfil but it’s the latter that is really tough. The majority of my free time is spent on the sofa, feeling exhausted and unmotivated. I recognise that I’m not in the best state, but it’s still tough to find that balance between what I love to do and what I need/chose to do.
It’s very clear to me that I love languages (especially Korean) and would love to devote my whole life to the pursuit of languages and related things but somehow and curiously enough, I find myself going away further from it and I cannot quite see the direction that I’m heading towards. As someone who at least like to have the big picture in mind (instead of very specific goals), this is making me feel quite lost.
Ok, I’m going too much into the inner dilemma again. ><
My newest (?) strategy of improving my Korean is to read widely. Thus far, I have been more or less reading up on business/economics and bought a couple of books to add to the collection. Personally, I have some interest in FinTech and startups, so thought will be quite cool to learn about the subject in Korean 😀 I realised that I like reading widely instead of going into a certain topic too deeply. And I’ve realised something – everything seems cooler and much more interesting when I read in a foreign language hahaha. I have no idea why. Maybe it’s the sense of accomplishment that I feel?
In any case, I’m feeling happy and contented now on a Sunday evening 🙂
I need to come back to blogging again. Why am I depriving myself of the things I enjoy so much.
I’m not sure if this blog has anymore readers, but if you are still here, leave a comment! ^^
