Mood: not bad

Geez, June is going fast.

Monday I confirmed with Tr. Elizabeth that I was leaving the school after July, and I decided on the date I'll leave- roughly August 5-6. It's less than two months away. Crazy.

Yesterday the scholarship foundation announced the final selection. Now, if we'd already been accepted to the second selection, were accepted by a graduate school, and submitted all of the necessary forms and documents, we were 100% going to be on this final list. The big thing to come out of it was that they announced where our language schools were.

I ended up being placed at Jeonju University.

I am not, shall we say, bursting with joy. Jeonju is a small town (smaller than Gwangju) and also located in the Jeolla region. It's only about an hour away from Gwangju and, well, I've been there before. I know, beggars can't be choosers, but I was hoping for a completely different experience. After an hour or so of sulking I got over myself and now I'm really thrilled. The dorms look REALLY nice, the school uses a set of textbooks I've wanted to study - I know, how nerdy is that? - and it's different from Gwangju.

It's also entirely possible that I'll do well enough in my Korean studies by February to be able to start graduate school next March. It's not what I would consider a best case scenario, but if I study hard it's a possibility.

Now I'm just trying to figure out how to study more Korean without a) learning more vocabulary (100 words a week is pushing it), b) watching more TV (not a TV fan, 20 minutes a day is pushing it), or c) reading more books (10 pages isn't necessarily pushing it, but I don't want my brain to melt). I may need to just suck it up and read more. And listen more. And watch more. Sigh...
