Ive worked at BN for a lil less than 10 years and i have never broke down into tears, until today. Im so sick of being abused by customers over the most meaningless things and not being able to defend myself. I was in an abusive relationship for 7 years and i feel like i never really escaped that, just now its with retail instead of my ex. Ive hit the point where I think im finally done. Its not worth it and it never really has been.
Still here, not dead! Just taking #ABDLife slow. Today that means baking bread, carefully watering my new miniature rosebush, and shoving The Boy out the door so he can go get me the ingredients I need for a chili&Fritos burger (I have not had a burger of ANY kind in WEEKS what the fuck is this nonsense).
In other news, my weeks have gotten longer because teaching got fucked and I have to go in to NYC 4 days out of every 5 now. But I’m getting paid a little extra, which will help to cover expenses… and we think we’ve found our new car!
How are you studying Korean? (Like what service/textbooks are you using?)
Books: Ewha , Yonsei, Sogang, 빈도별 토픽, Integrated Korean
Online: Talk to me in Korean, Italki lessons , Naver Webtoon, Memrise, Quizlet, Pann Nate
Listening & Speaking: Videos in YouTube (with Korean subtitles), KBS Radio / SBS Radio
Typically Everyday , I would read Pann Nate (Korean forums) and webtoon. Sometimes I would note down the words that I don’t understand too!
I would also use Ewha textbook and workbook for self study every 3-4 days. Reading the sentences out loud and constructing sentences using new grammar. Plus, I borrowed integrated Korean from the library and used it for a period of time.
For weekly Italki lesson, my teacher uses Yonsei and Sogang books.
