Short ramble update… I’ve been working hard on my vocabulary lately and I already notice it paying off. I catch more words in dramas or music… I can read faster because I don’t have to go to a dictionary, sometimes I can even predict what a word means because it’s very similar. (On that note I should really try looking at Hanja some more).

Aside from the 2000 words book I bought, I downloaded a 3000+ Anki wordslist that’s proving to be very helpful. Learning vocabulary is kinda boring, but I’m trying to make it a habit… the rewards are simply too great.

With that out of the way, some of the words keep coming back. It’s always the same ones too… pretty funny actually.

I just had to post this when I noticed a bunch of words in the drama I was watching… End of ramble!

I’ve been thinking a lot lately, specifically about the direction of the blog. Today my roommate said to me: “Learning Korean is great, but it’s not going to get you the career in Korea by itself. It might make it easier, but you do need the actual knowledge too.”.

He’s right.

While I can’t say that Korean has been a full time focus, neither has anything else. So what am I going to do? I’m going to make Korean an evening task only. Work / study for school during the day. After dinner full attention to Korean. I’ve got to focus on programming right now and get back in the game. I’ve been too inactive lately on the (game) programming front and I want to fix this. I want to post on this blog now too about my programming progress, it gives me more to talk about (so more frequent updates!) and maybe I can even combine programming and Korean, making the title of the blog more appropriate!
