Who are you?
The name’s Kat. 20-something, but doesn’t feel a day older than 15 (or 16?). Lives somewhere sunny. Err…yeah. I have nothing else of particular importance to say about myself. ^^
I blog and blog over mundane, everyday stuff to friends and semi-friends alike, tweet random things in 140 characters or less (I do tweet longer sometimes, though…), and I write stories. I also have a Pottermore account (because I was, am, always will be a Potter fan), so if you have one, leave a comment here with your username so I can add you! And no, I do not have a Facebook account. Don’t judge.
Apart from this language site, I used to have a LiveJournal account for Korean as well as a Tumblr account. While I’ve stopped writing in the LJ account for good, I’m still using the Tumblr one because…well, it’s easier for me to write there compared to doing it here in WordPress.
What’s this blog all about?
This is where I will post random thoughts, concerns, rants, et cetera about language learning and anything related to the language(s) of my choice. I’m currently learning Korean (trying to learn would be more appropriate, though), so most of my entries will be about Korean–the language, the culture, the dramas, what have you. I used to want to learn Japanese, but I unfortunately got discouraged with the sheer number of kanji I have to recognize to be able to read anything remotely satisfying (as of today, I can only recognize around 50+ characters? Or maybe that’s an underestimation…or worse, over). Spanish was something I studied in school just for the sake of taking a language class–I loved it, but that love wasn’t enough to make me want to continue learning it outside the boundaries of grades and exams.
tl;dr: I’ll be posting stuff about language and anything relating to the culture of that language. ^^
It started with Korean dramas. Then came K-pop, started by my addiction with Super Junior, then Big Bang, then DBSK. Then came watching variety shows—which are infinitely awesome, by the way.
Then came the language. And the culture. Before I knew it, I wanted to know more. And more.
…and now here is pihaenggi (비행기, airplane), which I hope will become my blog for all things Korean…and more.
You live a new life for every new language you speak.
So let’s live many lives. As much as we can, for as long as we can. ^^
