this is me

Chores / go go Korean!

Packing: more or less completed. Still gotta pack up a few toiletries (soap, retainer, glasses cloth).
Chores: almost completed. I need to do two loads of laundry in the morning and I'm good to go.

I hop on a bus at 12:30 tomorrow and off to Malaysia I go! I'm kind of shell-shocked right now. I'm going to see my MOM. And go to Malaysia. It's strange. I'm excited, but it's a vague sort of excitement - I keep thinking about it but it hasn't hit me yet. Not completely at any rate.

On an unrelated note, I came up with a study plan and have decided that I will be fluent in Korean by March 2013. I know, "decided" doesn't mean much of anything. Especially not with me and my complete lack of motivation. But I have no reason NOT to be fluent and I think it's time I put up or shut up. My goal for the last year has been to go to a Korean university to study Korean language. Forget that. I'm going to go to a Korean university to get a master's degree. Word.

Also: I did some pronunciation drill practice with Minkyu last night. Double (tense) consonants are arguably the most difficult part of the language - and Minkyu says I have them perfected. Hmm. We'll see about this.
