Procrastination

Kim Nam-joo and Kim Seung-woo. One of my most favourite K-celebrity couples which includes Yeon Jung-hoon and Han Ga-in. ;P

I can't believe that I'll be flying off in a few hours' time. My luggage is still not packed at all and I'm still in front of the computer blogging away and watching dramas LOL. I feel pretty 'chill' this time round, not sure why. Maybe because I had wanted to go to Korea more but because of some reasons my trip there couldn't materialise and I'm just sulking and going green with envy behind the laptop when I see other people posting photos of themselves in Korea. T_T OK that was a pretty long sentence but I don't give a damn 'cos I'm still feeling bitter. *pouts* I swear that I'll visit Korea next, you just wait. I hope that I'll enjoy my trip. May be paying a visit to my cousin who is now in Melbourne. I may make him bring me to Lake Mountain to ski since the rest are not interested in it. I saw so many photos of my senior skiing in Snowy Mountains and boy, it does really look fun! ._.

I had intended to pack my luggage yesterday but I ended up doing frivolous things like watching dramas (AHEM!) and more serious things like cleaning up the house. I did everything I could do in the house except to pack. The thought of packing just thoroughly puts me off I swear, especially when I can't imagine how to squeeze all my winter clothes into the luggage without exceeding the said weight.

Anyway, I wanted to take a cab to the airport 'cos I wanted to finish watching today's episode of My Husband Got A Family but my mum refused to let me watch it 'cos she's so afraid that I'll miss the flight or something, so I have to be out of the house by 10.30 pm to catch the cab (I think I'll take the train instead). See see, other people are so much more 'gan chiong' than I am about my trip. Haiz, I can't even watch my current favourite drama in peace. 2 weeks without my Korean dramas. Right, so I'll just watch it online now.

Did I mention that I love Cha Yoon-hee and Bang Gwi-nam loads? I love the entire cast in My Husband Got A Family. How can such a cute family exist?!?! I can't find anybody to hate in that show, although the youngest sister-in-law is a bit annoying 'cos she's always bullying Yoon-hee, but heck lah, she's still cute. ;3 Not to mention that I'm currently loving Kim Nam-joo loads! She's such a fashionista and she's the wife of my ahjussi crush. Aigoo, what a perfect couple! <3

I swear that the gap between I1 and I2 is HUGE!!! It's been only 2 lessons and I am already clueless about what is going on in K class. I thought informal speech was just about speaking informally, but there are still so many rules to follow when you speak in informal speech. It gets really hella confusing and it's really very difficult for us non-natives to grasp it well. 반말 진짜 너무 어려워! Missing a semester of K lessons is really bad and it shows because I have forgotten the grammar structures and have difficulty pronouncing the words out even if my mind knows how to read them. Should I miss another semester of K classes, I'll make sure I go to South Korea and practise my Korean everyday.

Ms Sung cut her hair heehee. Somebody tell her to stop being so cute, pretty please! I am always GL-ing her in class though, haha. I would never have done it back in 2008, no matter how cute my teachers were. I did start GL-ing teachers a little in 2009 and subsequently more in 2010, but not to the extent of this to my K teacher. ;P OK, she's GL-ing me too, 'cos she uses formal speech with the rest of my classmates but informal speech with me. U.U

Last Saturday marked my first K lesson in erm, 3 months? I haven't been speaking K properly and hence my rusty pronunciation and weird sentence structures. As expected, my teacher wasn't the teacher that my previous classmates had 'cos they told me that their teacher would be returning to her home country for awhile. Instead, my teacher is a new teacher in this school. Shucks man, I was so looking forward to being taught by November (that is really her name LOL!) due to her semblance to Fierce One in terms of looks. Anyway, we will be reunited again once I2 passes. My dear friends are so nice to skip one semester in order to wait for us. ;_;

Anyway, Ms Sung is really a very pretty, cute and high teacher. All lingering thoughts of wanting November to teach me immediately disappeared LOL. I came in to class late due to the stupid shuttle bus not arriving, so I ended up cabbing in with another girl. Ms Sung was already asking the people in class to do a self-introduction. This term's focus is on informal speaking, which is really very weird and hard for me because we were taught to speak formally for the past 3 semesters. Imagine speaking informally to my E3 teacher. ._. Anyway, speaking informally is like the way you talk and behave with your friends. It's very hard to talk like that to your teacher, no matter how close you are to her, and especially to Koreans who are still so deeply entrenched in their Confucian beliefs. But but but, Ms Sung is so different. The moment I sat in front of her, she was already commenting on how cute I was. LIKE WHAT?!?!?! O.O''' I don't recall any teachers saying that to me when they first see me. Correction, I don't recall any teachers saying that to students whom they are seeing for the first time. And I didn't even introduce myself to her yet. Anyway, she was really very high, but cute too. It's so hard to believe that she already has a 4-year-old daughter. >.<

I'm really looking forward to the subsequent lessons, but to be honest, things will really get tougher from here on. Informal speech does really take some time to get used to and the sentence structure will change as well.

Anyway, my contract will end on the 9th, which is about one week from now. I'll definitely miss all my colleagues and the friends I have made here. It's hard to believe that I had so much complaints earlier on, but as days passed, I grew quite close to almost everybody in our division even though we don't see each other everyday. Work itself is still shit haha, but the company I have had for the past few weeks were definitely great. I really enjoyed talking and bullshitting with them in order to pass time.

I'm not sure if I'll continue to look for other jobs before I leave, but I think if I work, we won't have time to plan where we want to go. A trip to Snowy Mountains sounds great though. ^^
