I’m like a real blogger now

21 08 2008

So I am like a real blogger now since I haven’t posted in a while. Anyways to catch people up on things, I just got back from New York, like 20 minutes ago, and went to Idaho last week. So most of my things from my list are now complete

1. Get out of Canada (where I am currently located)

2. Go to Portland for a concert by The Faint

3. Go to grandmother’s memorial service

4. Go to New York to see my girlfriend for the last time before I am gone for possibly a year

5. Maybe learn some Korean… which I have no knowledge of

Now I just need to learn some Korean… which I know for a fact won’t happen before I leave. Although I did read one of those Korean culture and customs books on the plane back to Seattle. It was, overall, not that helpful, but whatever it’s probably best I read it anyways. So I also signed up for classes today in the airport (best place to do that sort of thing if you ask me) and I am taking: PRE-MODERN KOREAN HISTORY, TRADITIONAL KOREAN SOCIETY & MODERNIZATION, and INTERNATIONAL TRADE PRACTICES, along with the beginning Korean class I will be placed in once I get to school.

Overall I am pretty happy with the courses I am signed up for, and the best part is that all I have on Fridays is Korean and no class starts before 10AM which is always a big plus. I am the anti-morning person so that is an important thing for me. So before Sunday (when I leave this place) I have to do some stuff, such as, buy a few more clothes, get a haircut, eat some good food, and finish up on video games. One of my goals while in Korea is to severely cut back on the amount of video games I play, which hopefully won’t be too hard as I will be busy doing all sorts of things.

Anyways I am pretty tired and I think I am going to go head over to my big cushy bed and put myself to sleep for a bit, as I have to get up and start doing some wonderful errands.
