Hey ^^ day before yesterday (29th June) was this blogs 1st anniversary and it seems I am not smart enough to schedule a post correctly haha! but anyway I am posting this today two days later :)
I opened this blog one year ago today and to me I just wanted to have a little place to keep a diary for myself to know what I did during my studies and didn’t think I would enjoy it as much as I have come to enjoy it ^^ its different from what I though it would be actually! Didn’t think I would become attached to this blog like a “baby” or family xD you get me right? I hope you do! I’m no Robert Frosting I don’t have a way with words but I try my best to get my point across …as best I can ~
I have met many people online and learnt from them in ways I didn’t know I could ^^ I thank you all for that, its been a new experience this past year and I am going to continue until I no longer have anything more to say and how likely is that? I have lots to say 진짜요 ㅋㅋㅋ so basically I will continue with this blog forever I never will stop which I look forward to actually ^^ something to look back on and I am glad to have that …!!!!
Now lets look at what happened in that last year ^^ not much maybe more will happen this year ㅋㅋㅋ
- Opened this blog ^^ does that count? I’m sure it does ㅋㅋ
- Made Korean friends whom I email often ^^
- Was in the Lexophiles TOP 100 LANGUAGE LOVERS competition ~ this was actually an honour and it motivated me a lot ^^
- Balanced Korean more than I ever thought I could ^^ used it a lot …and love it more everyday (:
If I stated everything that happened and I felt and thought we could be here for hours ㅋㅋㅋbut I’m trying to say I have enjoyed this year and there are more to come I know that because I foresee billions of posts coming your way :p about everything and my future trip to Korean and…ummh China if I have my way ㅋㅋ I dunno there are many many things I want to do and to me everything is possible ^_^ nothing is ever impossible ~ the sky is the limit!!!
For this blog and for Korean studies there are many more years to come :)
기대 해주세요 ^.^
Here is a poem I hope shows how I feel (:
Be thankful that you don’t already have everything you desire,
If you did, what would there be to look forward to?
Be thankful when you don’t know something
For it gives you the opportunity to learn.
Be thankful for the difficult times.
During those times you grow.
Be thankful for your limitations
Because they give you opportunities for improvement.
Be thankful for each new challenge
Because it will build your strength and character.
Be thankful for your mistakes
They will teach you valuable lessons.
Be thankful when you’re tired and weary
Because it means you’ve made a difference.
It is easy to be thankful for the good things.
A life of rich fulfilment comes to those who are
also thankful for the setbacks.
GRATITUDE can turn a negative into a positive.
Find a way to be thankful for your troubles
and they can become your blessings.

Everything said in this beautiful poem describes how I feel ^.^ in life and in studying Korean and about everything and everyone ~ when it comes to making mistakes I am thankful I can make them and see what I have done and use those very mistakes as lesson ^.^ when I have a challenge I never look at it with a glum face I look at it with a smile and I see it as a way to prove myself to no one other than myself ME not knowing something never gets me down because I think to myself “Ah! something I don’t know….another opportunity to learn something!” thankful for desires and wishes without them what would be the point of living a life when you want for nothing? When you want something you look forward to the day you have that something or you achieve what you have been working so hard for :) that’s what life is all about!
Bottom line. I’m always thankful for what life has, and what she throws my way and I never take it for granted! Always seeing what I can learn and how I can grow from any situation ^.^
Everyone have a great day ^.^ today sadly I am very very busy so I can’t study a lot DX but on Wednesday I know I will have more time since I have nothing to do on Wednesday ㅋㅋㅋand thank you again ^^ for a wonderful year and for more to come!!!
