잘 해서 하는 것이 아니라 잘 하기 위해서 하는 거지.
I don’t know how most people feel, but I don’t just do things that I’m good in. Obviously this doesn’t mean that I go around doing things that I’m horrible in, but rather things that are challenging. A common reaction to my decision is “어려울 텐테, 할 수 있겠어?” (It’s likely to be difficult, can you do it?) /What’s with that doubting tone?/
I think most people will do things that they are already good / confident in and yeah it does seem like I’m not really qualified to do a Masters degree in Korean with ease. But the whole point of me doing this is to become “good enough”. This has always been my approach. I don’t wait until I’m good enough to start reading Japanese or Korean novels; I read them to become good.
I enjoy a steep learning curve and I believe the fastest way to achieve things is to constantly go out of your comfort zone and daring to believe.
So I’ll be spending the next 2 years of my life working hard to become good in Korean and get masters degree at the same time, instead of waiting to become good enough in Korean to attempt a masters degree.
So yeah. Please stop telling me that I’m not qualified. Because I’ll become qualified.
On a side note, I envision myself getting more busy with …. Watching dramas. Pft. Heartbroken that I’m done with 무정도시 but there are quite a good number of shows on my to watch list.
GOOD DOCTOR (굿닥터) was surprisingly good and I’m sooooooo happy that Joo Won found another (potentially) good drama after thedramathatshallnotbenamed. At first I was worried that it’s gonna be another typical k-medical drama but I’m glad there are at least some differences. Like how the the director is a female and not one of those “earning money is more important” kind of character. Well you still get that kind of people around in the drama but at least the stereotypes are broken. As a layperson watching the drama, I find it well made, even though they still like to make use of the medical drama cliches.
I wonder why medical dramas always have the “I cannot find something sharp. Let me use a pen instead” scene. I seem to remember that from God’s Quiz and the Japanese Iryu drama. -.-
I shall not comment on whether autism or savant syndrome is realistically portrayed or any of the medical stuff. For someone who knows nothing, I think it’s a good drama and Joo Won acts well. ^^
I kept my eyes shut whenever they are cutting something or when there are blood and organs. ><
I know I’ll be tuning it to Ep 2!
