Anonymous said: do you purposely skip anon questions/only answer afew at a time because only afew of my questions have been answered >< not trying to rush you or anything i was just wondering if you got them or if tumblr ate them

It’s usually just a time thing. I tend to answer asks when I have small chunks of time to kill, so if a particular ask requires a long answer, I might put it off for later when I have time to properly write out my response. But, then of course, there’s the chance that it’ll get buried under new messages and I’ll forget about it;;

I have had issues with tumblr eating messages before, however, (people off anon have mentioned sending me stuff, but I never got anything from them) so if it’s something important that you’d really like an answer to, try asking again~.

Day 42: This was the most boring day ever and nothing special happened. (?_?) But I woke up in a good mood (rare) and treated myself to a caramel frap, so no complaints!

Day 43: Such a wonderful day in Insadong with my classmates. Made some really good Korea memories, and also bought some ddeok from my most favoritest of favorite ddeok jips~. Ahhhhh yum.

Day 44: Bought a new ring, and a very pretty floral print dress for spring. The dress looked pretty “meh” on the rack, and it was tucked away in a corner of the store where no one would really find it, so I hesitated on even picking it up. But I’m so glad I tried it on, because it’s so flattering and feminine and the fabric is nice and airy. Going to wear it on my date tomorrow for Chunsa and mine’s 150 days.^^ Maybe heels too??

Anonymous said: this may sound complicated but like how many hours a day do you study korean and how many times a week? oh and do you ever get nervous speaking korean infront of people?

I take classes 4 hours a day, 5 days a week in Korea. And when I was in America, I took them 45 minutes a day, 5 days a week (plus 2 hours of weekly tutoring.)

Not going to lie, I’m kind of lazy and I don’t do much additional studying outside of class unless I have an assignment or project due;; (But I am planning on cracking down next school year to start prepping for the TOPIK exam, so that’s gotta change.) I watch Korean TV in my free time which I can’t really call ‘studying’ but it does help with listening and learning native intonation~. Um, and all my Kakao convos are in Korean, so that’s writing practice maybe??

I used to get nervous in the beginning (L1-2) but I really don’t these days, at least 99% of the time. Phone calls, talking to my landlord, chatting on the subway, daily life stuff, blah blah, all fine. The only time I get nervous is in really formal situations, like interviews or solo presentations.

The atmosphere is really nice~. The shopping is only so-so in my opinion — quite expensive, and mostly just jewelry/accessories/stationary items. The kind of stuff you might find at a craft fair. But lovely for taking pictures or just leisurely walking around, enjoying the weather.^^

Anonymous said: Do you think that 1,2 million won per month would be enough to live in Seoul? (I plan on living on campus) thank you~

That is more than enough, for sure. With that budget, you can basically do, eat, drink, buy whatever you want.

I’m jealous! .o.
