this is me

goodbye / fucking computers / studying / new phone

Well, my mom is gone. She caught the 4am bus to Incheon. I am depressed and I don't want to talk about it.

I spent 3 hours last night attempting to move all of my files from one external hard drive to another and trying to wipe my old laptop clean. Then this morning I spent 2 hours updating the file information for 1,000 songs. For the last 3.5 hours I've been attempting to get iOS5 working on my iPod. It's taking its sweet time restoring everything. I should've just stuck with the old version.

I'm about to start chapter 2 of my Korean textbook. It's funny, the grammar is going by very quickly but the vocabulary sucks up a LOT of time. Now that I don't have anyone to entertain 24/7 I will have more time to study.

Since I will be changing jobs in a few months I've decided to go ahead and buy my own phone. I'm debating between iPhone 4S, Galaxy Nexus, and Galaxy S2. I might also wait until early next year to buy a phone. Hopefully more Ice Cream Sandwich-based Android phones are released by then.

this is me

studying, bobby kim, nanowrimo.

Studying: I did two pages of my textbook (grammar) and 12 workbook pages. I also had a bit of speaking practice with Minkyu, watched maybe 4 hours of Korean TV, and practiced my norae skills. I will master "Lucifer" and "Bad Girl, Good Girl" if it kills me. I feel like I should start on the next grammar point but it's late, I only slept 3 hours last night, and I need to review vocabulary before I go any farther.

One of the TV shows I watched has famous Korean singers compete to have the best score. I'm not talking K-pop, I'm talking hardcore, real life talent here. Bobby Kim's version of 사랑사랑사랑 was outstanding. I keep impatiently reloading Google to try to find the live version. I also really liked Insooni.

Also I think I have a NaNoWriMo plot idea. Well, not really. I have the setting. That's progress, right? (Considering how much I've been studying lately, we'll see if this novel will actually happen.)
