Well, a new year has begun and I feel like I’ve accomplished nothing in 2013. That’s not a big deal though since I was never trying to accomplish anything. But this year I hope will be a bit different. I know making a resolution is pointless since not many ever follow through or get past the first month. But I will be setting, hopefully, realistic goals for this year.
I am going to seriously start learning Korean. No more putting it off in favor of sitting around doing absolutely nothing. I’ve collected a ton of materials over the last two years. I always said I was going to study, but then I’d watch a drama or play a game instead. I’ve decided to keep a log of sorts on this blog detailing my progress… in minor detail since I’m lazy. I can read Korean just fine and I know the very basics (greetings, numbers, a few grammar points and a couple phrases).
I’ve downloaded all the Talk to me in Korean lessons available, I have their level 1 book and I also have Integrated Korean: Beginning 1&2. I’ve downloaded FSI Korean and I have Pimsleur but I don’t think I’ll actually use either of those.
Starting today, 01/07/2014, I will begin to truly study. I’m going to try and finish TTMIK Level 1 by the end of the week and complete the first couple lessons of Integrated Korean.
But learning Korean isn’t my only goal for this year. I also plan on finishing a whole bunch of stories I have sitting around on my flashdrive. I’ve abandoned writing for a little over a year now and I feel bad about it. There are days when I want to write and then I get home from work and sit around doing absolutely nothing productive. I don’t know which project I’m going to start with, but I am going to finish something by the end of February…
Anyways, here’s to a new year!
