아 일찍 자고 싶어~

I'm not quite sure what happened this week, but my laziness has been hitting me full-force. It's a pain to study, work, clean, make food... everything. I have flashes of efficiency (yesterday I spent an hour working out lesson plans for the next month; and today I wrote up a test, study guide, and answer key). But then I proceed to spend my free periods doing fuck-all. Not good. Of course, as far as work's concerned, it doesn't really matter- I'm not teaching another proper lesson for another 1.5 weeks.

The GIC is offering a couple classes in their upcoming session that I'm thinking about taking: Korean through K-Entertainment and Intermediate Grammar. I don't know if my level is appropriate for either class, so I'm going to ask my tutor her opinion tomorrow. If I take one of those classes I'll be up to 3 classes a week - about 4.5 hours in-class - on top of the rest of my regularly-scheduled studying. It's a lot. Possibly too much? On top of work as well? I mean, maybe not, since it's not like I really do anything else with my time. This is an investment in my future.

I can't help but think, "I want to be fluent now!" I've put so much effort into learning this language and I feel like I've barely made any progress... in contrast to my experiences with Russian and French (and even Italian). It's like, I'm not exactly good at Korean, but I've made so much progress recently that I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Soon I will be good enough at Korean that Koreans will stop telling me I'm surprisingly good at the language- instead, they will tell me that I need to study harder. This is my goal, folks. To reach the halfway point; after which, everything will just be an uphill battle...
