종합시험들을 다 망했어ㅠㅠㅠ

I've been putting off posting for a while because I was pretty busy, then I was pretty depressed. But I'm over it now (uh, more or less?) so I'll give it a post.

To graduate you have to take a number of exams (comprehensive exams/graduation exams), as well as a language exam. I passed my language exam last year, but as I'm a third semester graduate student now I had to take my comprehensive exams this semester.

I had to take three: 국어문법론, 국문학사, 현대문학. Korean Grammar Theory, History of Korean Literature, and Modern Literature. The first two were required of all literature/linguistics majors, the final one was my choice (I could have chosen to take the exam for classical literature instead, which I didn't, for obvious reasons).

The thing is, this is Korea. Seniors (선배) give other students previous exams/materials to help them study, as well as "예상문제" (predicted questions). Usually, if you get a previous exam, you simply have to memorize the contents and spew it out on the test and you pass.

I have two seniors. One took the master's level exams two semesters ago, the other took them something like 2-3 years ago. I asked the one who took it two semesters for any materials or a previous test. At first she said yes. Then she didn't send it to me for a month. Then I politely asked again, and she told me that everything was on an "external hard drive." (So what?) When we had class in person again after that, she told me that I should just ask the professors for hints. So she gave me nothing. My other senior gave me the questions she remembered from her exam, as well as materials for the grammar exam.

So basically, I had materials for grammar, a few questions for history of literature, and nothing for modern literature. Okay.

I studied. Not well, but I did. On Friday the 14th I had two of the exams: history of lit and grammar. I go to history of lit. It was nothing like what I was expecting. There were six questions and I had to choose three to write about for an hour. I was able to answer one question confidently, one question semi-confidently, and one question I kind of... flubbed. I didn't know the exact person that was being discussed, but I knew about the literature of the time period, so I write about it. 50/50 percent I passed that exam.

Then I went home and memorized the questions for grammar. I go to take the grammar exam- and was immediately stumped. I was provided with 16 questions, of which I needed to choose five to write about. I was able to answer one with any sense of confident. ONE. The rest I had no clue about. I am no joking. Not only did I not study the right stuff, but my materials were flat out wrong as well. And the exam had been changed, to boot! I got the sense that it wasn't a particularly difficult exam, but I am a foreigner who is not fluent in Korean and doesn't know the first thing about grammar in his own language, let alone in Korean. So I left that exam very, very depressed.

I studied a bit- a very small bit- that night and the next morning for the modern lit exam, which was Saturday, the 15th. I go in. I turn the paper over. 6 questions provided, choose 3 to answer (do you sense a theme here?). Yet again there were 3 questions I simply could not answer. One question I answered very confidently. One I answered semi-confidently, bordering on unconfident. One I kind of scrambled to answer (it was about 친일시, or the "Japan-friendly" poetry group in the 1940s). I kind of roughly knew the basics about the group, but the test asked me to choose a poem and analyze it. I've never read a poem from that group before in my life. Actually, that was the main issue I had with this exam; I was kind of expecting it to be tailer-made for me. I've taken classes on literature in 60s and 70s, literature history from the 20s and 30s, semiotics and cognitive languages, and philosophy. The exam asked about a certain type of poetry from one poet from the 1930s. It asked about a specific story from an author from the 1940s. It asked about the trend of existentialism from the 1950s. The thing is, I kind of get the feeling that the test was not made for me. I think it was verbatim what my senior who took it two semester ago had done, based on the content of the test and what classes were offered in the semesters before I started at my uni. So if she had given me her materials- ANY of her materials- I think I would have done much better on that exam.

As it stands, I feel as if there's a 50/50 chance I passed the two literature exams, and absolutely no chance that I passed the grammar exam. Which makes me sad and frustrated and angry and depressed. I do get the chance to take the exams again next semester, but what happens if I don't pass them then? I won't be able to take the exams again until the fall semester next year...

Anyways. This week is midterms week, and I (fortunately!) don't have any midterms! All of my classes were canceled except my Tuesday class, so I've been simultaneously super lazy and super productive this week. I met up with Yongkuk on Monday at Garosugil, and we got delicious Mexican food and coffee after, and today I met Kiwoon for coffee and donkkas. I cleaned the bathroom, kitchen, swept and scrubbed the floors. I brought my winter coat to the dry cleaner. I read a couple books and did a few assignments for class. I started reading 두근두근 내 인생, which I need to finish up for class. I have a few more assignments to complete, and I intend on starting to get ahead on my work- but overall I'm pretty pleased with myself and the progress I've made thus far. I'm not just sitting around doing nothing! I'm sitting around doing nothing with brief flashes of productiveness!

And on that note, I'm going to go lay down in bed and read a romance novel or two.

내일 시험을 볼 건데...

September 30, 2016 | 09:37pm
Mood: 걱정

I have the Foreign Service Officer Test tomorrow.

This is how much I've prepared: _

Yeah, uh, not really expecting to pass. But it'll be a good experience to take it and see how it goes. I kind of feel as if being a diplomat would be a good job for me- and the Foreign Service lifestyle (providing opportunities to change your job, move to different countries and learn new languages) is right up my alley.

But yeah, we'll see how the test goes. I mostly want to take it, see how I do, and best case scenario: move onto the next stage. Worst case: know what I need to work out and focus on preparing for next year. (Which would most likely include listening to the news a little more often and finally getting around to ordering that subscription to the Economist that I've been talking about for the last couple years.)

I am also going to apply to a few other jobs in the federal government, because, well, why not? I don't really know what to do with my life but an ordinary office job doesn't really seem like a good fit for me. With the type of jobs I'm considering, I'd at least be able to travel a bit and continue living abroad, which would be ideal, to be honest. We'll see...

추석과 크리스티에 대하여

September 27, 2016 | 08:54pm
Mood: kinda sad

Real quick summary of the last couple of weeks before I get into the juicy part of the post.

1. Chuseok vacation was Wednesday September 14 to Sunday September 18. Wednesday I met up with Kristy, Nick, Kay, and Kay's friend visiting from Malaysia, JY. We got bossam at my favorite place near Jamsil and then went to Lotteworld. I'm going to be honest; I'm not a fan of amusement parks. The only reason I agreed to go was because Kristy wanted to go before she left. I got my friends to come so she could have company. We spent the day separated into two groups: me and Kay and Kristy, Nick, and JY. Kay and I don't ride rollercoasters, so that's how we split up. I feel as if their group must have been exceedingly awkward, and I know for a fact that they spent over 6 hours waiting in lines. Kay and I spent a grand total of an hour and twenty minutes in line (for two different rides) and spent the rest of the day exploring, eating, and going to Team Lab World, which is a really cool communal art exhibit. At the end of the day we got together, went to Seokcheon Lake to see the Supermoon (a big art exhibit on the lake) and went home.

Thursday was Chuseok. I spent the evening with Yongkuk. We ate dinner at Ashley's, watched a couple movies (Frozen and Avatar), went to a PC bang and played Overwatch, and hung out at his place. Friday we got tuna sashimi and tofu ice cream for lunch and did a bit of shopping.

Saturday I went to the doctor, got kind of good news. Later I met up with Kristy in Itaewon. We got okay Thai food (although she enjoyed the drinks quite a bit). Took a train to Jongno and went to an insanely expensive noraebang, where we sang for 2.5 hours or so. Our goodbyes were essentially, "Have a good life." Eek.

Classes were very much like... whatever. My left knee started hurting halfway through the week so I canceled lower body day at the gym and one run, which kind of made me sad.

This weekend (Saturday September 24) I went to Gangnam and got lunch with Bong, who was up to get his eyes checked after his LASIK surgery a couple weeks ago. The place we'd intended to go was closed, so we got donkkasu at a random place, wandered around UNIQLO and a foreign import snack shop, and I headed home. I managed to get a bit of studying done on the train which was good. I got back, went over to Kay and Nick's to get a book Kay checked out of her university's library for me. We hung out for a while before going to a random Italian restaurant near HUFS, Brillante. I got the cream seafood pasta which was very meh, and we split a chorizo pizza, which was really quite good. Afterwards we got juice at this trendy juice shop, where every cup they give out is in the shape of a lightbulb. Didn't do anything Sunday.

This week is just... going, I guess. I have a three-day weekend coming up, and I also have the Foreign Service Officer Test on Saturday, which I'm sure I'll fail (but I'm crossing my fingers that I'm naturally intelligent/politically aware enough to pass? ahaha). Only two classes left this week.

2. The real reason I wanted to write this post: Kristy has officially left Korea. I've had some issues with her over the years, but you know what? I'll miss her. We've known each other since 2012 and spent quite a lot of time together in 2013/14.

The weird thing is, well, every single person I consider a friend has left Gwangju. I do still know a few people in Gwangju, but nobody I would actively go back to visit. Nobody I care about. It's like... an entire 4.5 year block of my life has abruptly ended and I don't know how to feel about it. My oldest friends left in Korea are basically my only friends still here- Bong, Kay, Nick, Alyn, four people I met in 2014 (although I've known Bong for a few months longer than the rest).

When I graduated from university and left Kirksville, I can't say I really had this feeling, for a variety of reasons really. I was too involved in my new life in Korea, my friends there kind of drifted off and we never really kept in touch, plus I never really cared too much for Kirksville, period. I don't think I ever want to go back to Missouri, or Kirksville, honestly. On the other hand, in a way I consider Gwangju to be my Korean "hometown". I spent more time there than in Kirksville, and I really became an adult there. I would like to visit Gwangju again- visit Verviers, get shabu shabu at the good place in Pungam dong, go to Gosoo Dalk Galbi downtown, do my old walks around the reservoir/to and from downtown/around the mountain/through Juwol, Jinwol, and Bongseon-dongs. Just visit my old haunts, properly this time. But I don't know if I ever will- without anyone there to visit, can't go to the restaurants, and I'll have no real impetus to go. Besides, I've kind of fallen in love with Gangwon-do these days (Gangneung has more or less become my new favorite city in Korea), and if I'd rather visit Bong in Jeonju or go to Busan or something.

Anyways. I guess my point is, it feels like a good portion of my history in Korea has vanished with Kristy. On a related note... you know, if I leave Korea and decide to come back in five or ten years, I'm pretty sure I won't have anyone to visit or see. And I find that kind of sad.

기분이 좀 이상하네

September 20, 2016 | 01:15pm
Mood: 무한

I'm feeling very off today.

I don't know a better way to phrase it.

I had trouble sleeping last night. I woke up about 30 minutes before my alarm went off, convinced myself to get up and went for a run. It was a chilly morning, not humid at all, and the whole time I felt kind of like my body was wrapped in cotton. I was there, running along the path at the river, but I wasn't present. Pretty early on in the run I resigned myself to having a very poor showing for the day. When I finished and pressed the stop button on Strava, I discovered that I'd recorded the fasted time for 5km since May, and I'd broken a few records unintentionally.

I spent a good portion of the morning after my run and my shower laying in bed, in the dark. I only slept for about 20 minutes at most. The other 3 hours were spent screwing around on my phone. I wasn't hungry all morning, and I convinced myself to cook up a healthy vegetable lunch. I just printed out some files which I probably won't read for class today and tomorrow.

Compared to this morning, I don't feel as off as I did. But I don't feel right. I'm dwelling on things - my love life, friendship, my studies, my thesis. I don't know if I worked myself into this mood or if I came upon it naturally, but I'm suspecting I did. I don't know what I can do to get myself out of this slump, but I suspect it will involve the same process as always: time, distance, and sleep.

자기 반성

September 4, 2016 | 02:05am
Mood: contemplative
Music: RÜFÜS - You Were Right

Went to the doctor this morning, left bloody and in more pain than I was when I got there. This will never end, will it?

On a completely unrelated subject, let's talk about me. Otherwise known as 'my favorite topic'.

Something my friends and I have been discussing quite a bit recently is how we perceive ourselves vs how others perceive us. These discussions range from anything as mundane as, "What Hogwarts house do you think you would be in, and how about the rest [of the people in our group]?" and "What color represents you, and how about everyone else?" to, "What would it be like to travel with [someone's name]?"

I've long considered myself to be a Ravenclaw, by the way. But my friends unanimously agreed that I would be a Hufflepuff. Not necessarily because I'm loyal or not intelligent, brave, cunning, ambitious, etc, but because it's the house where "everyone else" is placed. This was repeated by 3 other people, by the way, completely independently of one another.

The fascinating thing is that this pattern was repeated with several different questions and situations. While I consider myself kind of navy blue or dark purple, my friends all consider me to be gray, of all colors. We all agreed Alyn was burgundy, while she saw herself as mustard yellow. Etcetera.

Now that I've established that the way I see myself differs from how others see me, it's time to get into the real nitty-gritty.

If I had to describe myself in five adjectives or less, I'd say... intelligent, creative, thoughtful, reserved, and positive would be it. I guarantee you that not a single one of my friends would use those precise words to describe me. Take, for example, the word positive. "Positive, Adam? Really?" they'd ask. Yes, really. Because while there is a part of myself that is certainly pessimistic, I'd consider myself an optimist, through and through. Everything will work out in the end, I tell myself, even when I'm horribly depressed and frustrated and sad and feel lonely and like nothing is going right (can you tell these are emotions I've been dwelling) struggling with today?). If I had a motto, that would be it, I suspect.

My friends, however, don't see me like that. They consider me to be very, very independent. We were talking about going to India recently. "If you didn't get up on time, Adam would just go out and leave you behind," Nick told Kay. Which is fascinating, because that's- well, kind of accurate, but kind of not. Because I consider myself to be incredibly dependent on other people. I have trouble doing things for the first time alone. On the other hand, Megan said something on our (plus Zandra) trip to Thailand, way back in 2010, that I remember to this day: just because we're traveling together doesn't mean we have to do everything together.

Thailand was the third country I'd ever been to. I was 23. Singapore was the fourth, only two months later. My friends were going to various countries I had no interest in, or traveling with people I wasn't on particularly good terms with (because, well, I was 23), but I wanted to go to Singapore. I knew someone who was working there, but that was my first time traveling alone. I am not great at traveling alone, honestly - I'm too reserved and introverted, and need to spend huge amounts of time alone, in my hotel room, to recover from the exertions of the day. That being said, I haven't let my fear of - well, of everything, really - take control. I've been to over 10 (15?) countries alone, and the process of traveling is, in and of itself, a reaffirming process that helps to make me independent in many ways that other people are not. While I still see myself as being a bit of a dependent person, most, if not all people view me as being incredibly independent. Which is way cool in my book.

Anyways, I find it fascinating, how one is perceived versus how one perceives themself. My phone's battery is about to die, so that's enough of that.

개강에 대한 생각

September 2, 2016 | 09:23pm
Mood: alright

First week of my third semester of graduate school. This week though... good lord. This entry is going to be a bit scattered, bear with me please.

Monday I had class 3-6, 한국현대문학사연구 (history of modern Korean literature). Four people in that class, one final paper, two presentations (which may just be analyses of poems/books? Not quite sure yet). The prof is quite nice so I think it'll be a good class. Unfortunately, it's only history of literature from the 1910s-1940s. Kind of disappointed, since I am far more interested in literature from the 1970s to now. Interestingly, much of the content of the class (at least 3-4 days) were actually lessons that the professor did last semester, so I've already studied it.

After class, I met up with another professor because I had questions/concerns. After we talked, I left, basically feeling like a moron, because I'd pretty much wasted his time - he didn't have anything to do with anything I'd asked him. I just... things in Korea are frustrating. That's all. I ended up contacting the department student representative, who gave me a little info about signing up for an advisor. He also looked over the list of classes I've taken/sign up for and told me - wait for it - that I was wrong. I didn't need to take 8 classes/1 outside of my major to graduate, I need to take 6 classes/2 outside of my major. Are you fucking kidding me?

Basically, I was planning to take 2 grad/1 prereq classes this semester and 2 grad classes next semester. Turns out that's unnecessary - if I just take 3 grad/1 prereq this semester, I'm done with classes, and I'll be able to focus on my thesis next semester. On the one hand, I was planning on finding a Korean tutor and studying twice a week this semester, and if I pick up another class, I won't have time to do that (probably). On the other hand, I'd rather spend next semester focusing on my thesis and nothing else. On the other other hand, four term papers. Ugh.

Anyways, so I then spent the evening debating if I wanted to add another class - which I decided would be the continuation of the semiotics class from last semester. I find semiotics/cognitive linguistics very interesting, particularly in terms of how you can apply it to literature, but it's hard enough to study in my own language, let alone a second language. But I was still unsure if I wanted to put myself through that again.

Tuesday I submitted the document to get an advisor, which was ridiculously confusing. I also had my class from 3-6, the semiotics class (which is listed as a "Literature Seminar"). So here's what the semester looks like: it's a team-taught class again. One prof is doing Kovecses' "Language, Mind, and Culture", another prof is doing the SAME EXACT BOOK - SAME LESSONS - on Charles S. Peirce's semiotics that we did last semester. Half the damn class will be identical to last semester! I'm like... conflicted, honestly. I was hoping to do another book this semester on the same topic, to give a slightly different view on the subject - to kind of fill in the missing parts, if you will. That being said, I'm not hating not having to study SO ridiculously hard this semester. I can try to get a hold of another resource and hopefully it'll clarify things for me. I ended up deciding to stick with the class.

Wednesday I had class 9-12. It's called "Early-modern Korean poetry" but it's more of a history of modern Korean poetry class - and not just that, but it's going to be led by the students, basically; we bring in a list of poets we want to study more in-depth and that'll determine the syllabus. I'm a little concerned, because analyzing poetry is hard enough in English, let alone having to do it in Korean. You need to know EVERY single word. I can't just read a Korean poem and immediately have an opinion - I need to sit, translate a few words, contemplate for a while, and then maybe I'll have something to say. I dunno. It has the potential to be an interesting class- or an awful one. We'll see.

Thursday I didn't have any classes. I started reading a book for my Friday prerequisite class. In the evening I met up with Yongkuk for dinner/chilling (or whatever it is we're doing), and then after he left I met up with Kay and Nick and we went to a coffee shop that's known for its cotton candy drinks, and we watched Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck in Roman Holiday while discussing my whatever-it-is with Yongkuk. Because, confusion.

Today, Friday, I had my last class from 12-3, the undergraduate/prerequisite class. 문학비평, or "Literary Criticism." It seems to be nothing but books from the 2000s, which I'm down for. Not a lot/any? papers, which confuses me/pleases me greatly. One guy I knew from the goddawful classical novel class last semester was also in the class. It has the potential to be a good class, I guess. I am worried because, well, I shine in analysis. But we don't seem to be doing much analysis...

I skipped out on the department dinner and got pasta at the great pasta place by HUFS back gate with Kay and Nick. Then we took a walk around Kyunghee uni and got ice cream. The hot weather has finally started to cool off, at least just a little, so it was a nice walk. Now I'm sitting here writing this entry.

The semester has the potential to be really, really intense. It also has the potential to be pretty easy. I think my big goal for the semester is to write the final paper for my semiotics class in the next few weeks. Like, before the semester really even begins. That means I need to find a poem, analyze, and start writing the shit out of that paper. If I could get to the last few weeks of the semester and only have 3, or better yet, 2 final papers, well, I'd be fucking thrilled.

A couple other things: I signed up for the Foreign Service Officer Test for October 1st. Not feeling like I'll pass or do particularly well, but it's worth a try, right? And my graduation exams are sometime around October 15-17, which scares the shit out of me. Also, it's official- since I changed my diet back in April, I've lost 6kg! I am officially 2kg away from the weight I've said I was for the last 5 years! Soon I won't be lying anymore! Hallelujah!

The surgery went well enough I suppose. Not gonna go too in-depth, but it wasn't as painful as I'd been led to expect (although certain actions are downright excruciating, although it's improving daily). Getting the spinal was fascinating- I could feel that something was happening, but I didn't actually know what. Then my legs felt super numb after, very similar to the numbness I've had in my leg since my surgery last year- I was a little worried that I had more nerve damage, but fortunately it went away after a few hours. The doctor showed my pictures the day after and I was kind of impressed/amazed by what all he'd done. Apparently it's looking good now and improving well, but he said that if there's a recurrence I'll have to go back to the operating room again. That being said, I won't need to be hospitalized next time, just a (painful) in and out procedure. Cross your fingers.

Classes start up a week from now. I'm kind of shitting bricks, and I'm also really depressed and frustrated. I don't feel ready for the new semester, especially not to take the graduation exam. I feel like I've done nothing this summer. Of course, that's nonsense; I traveled to Europe, did touristy things around Korea with my mom, read a shit ton of Korean books/short stories, hung out with friends, even traveled around Korea.

A couple weeks ago I went with my friends to Gangneung on a day trip to the beach. The water was BEAUTIFUL - so many shades of blue - and the sand, while not amazing, was bright yellow. Just gorgeous. The trip influenced us enough that we decided to do a 2 night 3 day trip to the beach, but this time to another one: Naksan beach, near Yangyang (in between Sokcho and Gangneung). This beach was... okay. Nice, but Gangneung was better, honestly. But the trip itself was fantastic. We visited a beautiful temple, Naksansa. Ate sashimi and chilled at the beach. Went to noraebang and watched the sunrise and set two days in a row. Played shit tons of Pokemon Go (a truly addictive game). It was such a great trip - a fantastic end to the summer.

My plan for this week is as follows:
- finish reading 박민규의 카스테라
- finish reading Land of Exile and at least one other book of translated short stories (The Snowy Road?)
- being 한강의 채식주의자
- finish bleaching Kay's hair and dye it purple
- buy a new backpack
- go to Felipe's birthday dinner (but skip out on the clubbing)
- and on Thursday, or maybe Friday, go back to the gym (I'm technically allowed to go to the gym at the 2 week mark of having the surgery, which would be Friday, although apparently it's better if I wait for the 1 month mark, but uh... no... so 2 week mark minus one it is)

I also want to just have one day of doing fuck all before the semester begins. Just relaxing, no studying at all. Sunday, I guess.

A bit about my study habits as of the last few weeks, as well as the upcoming semester. Somewhat because I've been intending on posting about this anyways, but mostly because I should be studying right now... eek.

I just registered for classes.Collapse )

I have two important things to do before I'll get to start writing my thesis.Collapse )

Now, my plans for my thesis are very, uh, vague?Collapse )

Okay, now on the reason I started writing this post in the first place: studying.Collapse )

Look at all those lj-cuts! Here's hoping I didn't leave out a back-slash somewhere...

I have been horribly lazy and even though I got back from my trip exactly a month ago (!!!), I still haven't even posted about it. So, here it goes, I guess.

My trip to Germany and Sweden. 6/24-7/6.Collapse )

Overall, it was a pretty good trip. Some take-aways:
- the sky, the weather, the buildings, and the people were all beautiful in Stockholm. (The men are all super tall and gorgeous. And so are the women. Unfair!)
- Berlin didn't enchant me as much as it's enchanted other people I know, but it was pretty nice.
- I don't know if I'll ever return to Sweden. It's a nice place, but... I dunno. Not necessarily my style.
- I do foresee myself returning to Germany. I didn't love it, but there's a lot of the country I have yet to visit, so I could see myself going back for more. I do think learning German might be useful before I return, however.
- I did have the homo apps, but I didn't meet anyone during the trip- by choice. Not quite sure what that means. (It probably relates to Yongkuk and however I feel about him, which I didn't exactly know at the time and still don't.) That being said, good lord, guys on the apps in Europe are just ridiculously attractive. Where are the average and/or ugly guys?

냉동볶음밥 도전

August 2, 2016 | 06:50pm
Mood: sigh

An extremely meaningless entry (because I've been too lazy to update as of late):

I've discovered these frozen fried rice packs, which are both cheap and relatively filling if I cook an egg with it. By tossing them into the microwave for 4.5 minutes, they're also very easy to cook, which is the main reason I buy them, honestly.

Anyways, I decided to cook one tonight. I always pour a little into a bowl, then put an egg on top, finish pouring the rice over the egg, and then cook it. I cracked the egg and started to put it in the bowl when I realized that the egg was rotten. I've never seen it before, honestly; inside the egg there was mold and the yolk was a bit hard. Annoyed, I threw out what I'd poured and washed the bowl. Then I repeated the process with another egg.

I always stir the rice one time in the middle of cooking it. I started to stir tonight and- I don't know what happened- but the egg exploded. Rice went flying everywhere.

My rice bowl is half the size of what I started out with. It's not even very good tonight, probably because it's been sitting out getting cold for the last twenty minutes. I'm resigned to the fact that the universe just doesn't want me to have a big dinner tonight. But hey, at least I have a clean floor!

And microwave.

And refrigerator.

And wardrobe.
