초심

0

I was rewatching Tree with Deep Roots (TWDR) a few days back, this time together with my mum. Then I looked back on what spurred me on to pick up an entirely new language, paying for the school fees and travelling to one of the richest districts in Singapore for lessons. It was this very drama. I picked up Korean by myself back in secondary school, but that was all. I learnt how to read and write but not understand. Dae Jang Geum did really get me interested in Korean culture and whatnot, but I did not feel the urge to pick up Korean seriously.

Then all that changed when I first watched TWDR in 2012. I was not contented with just knowing how to read and write. TWDR was the very drama that triggered my 초심. As the characters in the drama never once forgot their 초심 and worked tirelessly towards their goals, I, too, will also hope that I'll never ever forget my 초심. C won't be able to go anymore, and I'll have one less friend going with me. In fact, if A is not able to go, I'll have to go by myself. The thought itself is really very scary, and it'll be potentially lonely, especially in a place where I don't know anybody at all. My decision to go was shaken, but thinking of my 초심 makes me even more determined to go there.

맨디야, 네 초심. 꼭 잊지 마세요.

2014 is finally here. This year will be a watershed year for me. This year will be my very last year in university and my very last year in mainstream education before I go to work. I don't have the habit of having New Year resolutions, but since it'll be my last year in education, here goes.

1) Maintain my second uppers and try to aim for first (a bit impossible since it's my last semester already lol...)
2) Strike off something in my bucket list. It's there for a reason
3) Be more sociable lol. Stop being so cold and cynical of everybody who tries to be nice to me.
4) To make more friends. Not from university but other places.
5) Be more daring and learn to speak out my mind.

Hola 2014! 새해 복 많이 많이 많이 받으세요!
