Laziness & Language Battles

Standard

I am one of those really lazy people who when they have a day off work just lays around the house and watches Netflix or plays a video game all day.  I always plan to write a little or study some, but thenIi procrastinate until I just end up putting it off for another day.  I really need to work on changing that…

Writing

I haven’t worked on finishing anything but I have been editing one of my past NaNo’s for my free copies from Createspace.  I don’t know how many times I’ve edited this thing, but I still haven’t gotten completely sick of rereading it.  I know by the time I think I’ve finished I’ll have missed something, but since it’s only for my eyes I don’t really care that much.  I still want to finish one of my old stories by the end of the month, but I don’t think I will.  I got a message on tumblr from someone asking me if I was going to continue one of my stories that I haven’t updated since May 2012 and that has given me some motivation to work on it.  So who knows, maybe I will actually finish something…but probably not.  Yay for optimism! //sarcasm

Sadly, my brain is still filled up with story ideas while my flashdrive is clogged up with documents of stories long abandoned.

Korean

I’ve been working through Integrated Korean quite slowly, taking my time and reviewing words that don’t stick.  I haven’t gotten around to listening to Talk To Me In Korean lessons, but I mainly just need to review the first level anyways.  I’ll do that today (I say that now, but I’ll probably put it off because I have a lot of other things to do… yeah…totally…).

My lack of studying Korean isn’t necessarily because I’m lazy.  I’ve actually been really interested in Mandarin lately and so my attention keeps wavering and I find myself listening to ChinesePod101 lessons.  I don’t even know why I like Mandarin so much.  I used to cringe when watching Taiwanese dramas, I didn’t like the way Chinese sounded, but now I’m used to it and really starting to like the way it sounds.  I get really excited about learning a new word in Chinese.  But all my interest lies in Korean entertainment and culture.  So I’m having a mental battle trying to decide on which language to learn.  I could try for both, but I don’t think my brain can handle that right now… 나 어떡해?
