Well… kind of.
I don’t know what got into me. I ACTUALLY APPLIED!!!
hahaha I know I have been talking about wanting to take the exam this year, but I didn’t even go find out when the application dates are. >.< It’s totally out of a whim that I decided to go google it just now and seriously, I think my fingers are faster than my brain. haha before I really processed what I was doing, I sent the application -___-
Ohwell, so 65 dollars is on the line right now. hahahaha motivation to pass N3 so that I don’t waste my money.
I have zero idea what I just signed up for, I don’t even know how the test is structured, how long it is, where it will be held at pffft.
And I said “kind of” because I haven’t send in the photos for the application yet 😛 And I haven’t get confirmation yet.
But it feels good to challenge myself again! Reminds me of the time when I signed up for TOPIK intermediate in 2009. I was not at that standard yet (1 year plus into studying Korean) but still wanted to challenge myself! So glad I did it though. Having some kind of goal fuels my inner competitive self to strive even harder.
watching this video now and really enjoying it!!! Realized that I could understand quite a fair bit without checking anything. Watching it again more carefully and pausing the video to check new words and expressions (and oogle at him LOL).
I feel very happy studying Japanese these days ❤
