Mood: thoughtful

Anki reviews: 50 minutes
Listening (transcribed 3 dialogues and a story, completed student/workbook): 2 hours
Pimsleur day 12: 30 minutes
Total: 3 hours 20 minutes

Studying went quite well today. My listening comprehension is definitely improving as are my transcription skills: I made a total of 1 mistake on the three dialogues and only 7 in the story. I also did 50 minutes on the elliptical. Not bad! Also: I've studied about 25 hours in the last 7 days. Holy shit.

Last night Dohyung messaged me on Kakaotalk. Dohyung is the guy I met a few times last year, pre-Minkyu, and we haven't talked in almost as long. He messaged me in desperation: "Adam I need your help!!" Turns out he'd ordered a cooking device from the states. As the company doesn't ship internationally he had it shipped to a friend's house in Ohio. However he typed the wrong address and needed to get it changed. Neither he nor his friend spoke good enough English to do it: every question I'd asked him I could see his English devolve. I spent ages trying to figure out how to change the address and then spent even more time on hold with the company before they changed it. As a result the package (hopefully) was delivered today and I got in touch with Dohyung again. He's a good guy and he intends to help me study Korean when I'm back in Gwangju. Woo! It's snowing a lot right now. It's impressive. I'm glad I don't have to go out in it...

Today I received my apostilled background checks (FINALLY!) which means I can return to Korea next month! I'm so pleased. I also received the Sogang 2B and 3A textbooks. It looks like both have less grammar than 2A, but 3A has quite a bit more vocabulary... which is what I need at this point.
