i just finished with midterms
ok i still have one midterm for an online class this friday, but the korean midterm was the hardest one (of course). idk how i did
for the speaking test, the teacher was SO
kind and made it so easy. it was easier than any of my level one speaking tests were, so i really appreciate that. she seems to really understand what level we are all at
if you can't tell by the picture on the right, i got new glasses!
this is something i had been looking into on and off. i know glasses are generally cheaper & easier to get here, but my prescription is the opposite of most people (mine is +6~ while everyone else usually has a negative number). this makes my glasses more expensive
but finally i just did it and got these. they WERE more expensive, but about the same as they would with insurance in the states & i really really like them
my eyes are still magnified by the glasses, but i think because the frames are so large, it is not as noticeable as all my old glasses
i've begun tutoring two younger girls, one around 10 years old, the other around 13
the younger one has good english, but is very fidgety and it is harder to keep her on topic
the older one, though her english isn't that great, is very patient and good at listening to me and staying on topic
i think both girls are very nice and cute and their mothers are both very nice to me
i only meet with each of them twice a week for an hour, so it doesn't take up too much time.
so i haven't done anything really fascinating recently. at the beginning of april i did meet a couple of the anon-tumblrs from busan
who came up to seoul~
it was so great to meet them all, and i feel all sneaky now that i know who they are
but because money has been tight, i have been trying to study more and just generally hang out outside of my apartment, i haven't done very much/taken a lot of pictures
i do take a handful for my photography class (which i really love!), but those are all boring
however, our next assignment is to photoshop something from one photo into another, and i have some ambitious plans for that, so i'll try to show that off~
ah i have the rest of the week off
i'm so happy to just randomly be able to sleep in!
also, if you guys want to suggest good korean
movies, dramas or tv shows for me to watch, i'd love that
i need to start watching a lot more korean media so i can hear korean spoken naturally. i am aiming to find some dramas i can watch every day or something.
