Hi peeps! How’s your Korean learning going? Well, I am kinda ashamed to admit I haven’t been doing any ground breaking new method (other than my regular reading books, watching shows and listening to songs, and pawing through the naver dict), but I am however proud to say that I think I found my passion for learning things in general! I’ve always been a fan of the idea of putting time into learning lifelong skills that will be useful in life – I haven’t strayed from this principle. In fact, I’ve dedicated even more time into really putting the things I’ve learnt to good use.
Hence, in the past few months, I’ve been just revamping my lifestyle, intensively absorbing and practising like a sponge :
1,2) Baking and Cooking
3) Doing Calligraphy
Which makes me appreciate the good work people in the past have done to create beautiful, elegant writing that still stays true to form today. That’s legit awesome.
4) Watching a shit ton of wildlife/food/health/survival documentaries (I recently got addicted to Les Stroud’s Survivorman and Ray Mears’s Extreme Survival series, now I’ve learnt a bunch of survival skills! Not that you care, but if you’re also interested in the possibilities of perhaps one day being stranded in the wild, escaping ZOMBIES, this may come in handy.
I’ve a new-found appreciation of animals and their way of life, learnt some good principles from animals(!) about life, death, clean, good healthy food, making them allows me to know exactly what I’m putting into my body. Because of all these health documentaries, I’ve also got more information and understanding about eating disorders, the difficulty of people and fast food, obesity, health problems and I’ve bought myself a blender to do juicing and green smoothies now. (But of course, learn how to do it, and what vegs can benefit from boiling prior to blending for maximum benefits)
5) exercising – first rule of zombie apocalypse is to do cardio.
Just kidding. I get my exercise from the good people of FitnessBlender. They have really good stuff and knowledge about healthy living too.
6) and casually listening to korean songs and reading korean novels without pressuring myself to know everything, speaking of which.. have you guys heard Eddy Kim’s new mini album? It’s awesome!
These two in particular, have been on repeat nonstop.. which means:
(Sarah Andersen is a great student illustrator, but her page can be quite hard to find so here you go, MAGICAL LAND OF AWESOME COMICS)
yup. That’s all the stuff I did.
Best blog post conclusion ever.
