Let me use it again!

I started learning the Korean language on January 7, 2017.
I want to use it again!
Photo ripped off but no known source 

Yeah I know, it does seem like I really don't know what I should do with my life *laughs* I focused on Japanese because I was planning to do a master's degree in Japan, but that plan didn't work out till now. All of a sudden I decided to learn Korean because I thought I should start trying to pursue my higher studies there as well lol. It all started with a conversation with the Embassy of Oman in Korea ^^

So how is it going with me so far? I love learning languages, and learning Korean is fun of course. However, as a native speaker of Arabic, I expected to face some difficulty learning the Korean vowels. Arabic has a very simple set of vowels. Vowels in Japanese are even easier than Korean vowels. I think I'm doing fine with the vowels now though.

It's fortunate that I don't have to memorize Kanji/hanja while studying Korean, but on the other hand it's unfortunate that I actually have to memorize how some words are pronounced in Korean (just like English). However, I think I can make progress in Korean faster than Japanese. I've always been worried about how I can memorize more Kanji than what I already know. I don't have a good enviornment for studying kanji. Maybe I'm not making enough sense but that's just how I feel. I feel that my Korean is going to improve faster than Japanese in my current situation.

Korean sounds like a whole new language to me because I haven't been exposed to it enough. I will do my best though ^^ Generally the grammar sounds like Japanese, and I could recognize many words borrowed from Japanese. I feel that the Korean grammar will be a bit more challenging than Japanese, but again, I wI'll do my best.

I will work hard, but I hope that I will manage to do something new with my passport.

Motivation to keep on going

I got this rose last year on Mother's day (I'm not even a
mom but I was happy ^^) 
When I was a teenager I could never understand why many people talk about adolescence as a sensitive stage of one's life. My adolescence started so perfectly, but when I hit 14, I realized what that meant. At that time and all of a sudden, I started feeling as if my life was falling apart. I also used to wonder why some children need encouragement and motivation to work hard.

Obviously I used to think like that because I WAS FINE. Now I'm in my late 20's, and I really want motivation and encouragement to keep going :( I think I realized that I actually needed that sort of emotional support ever since I was 14. Sometimes I can't believe I managed to write up a whole novel when I was 19 years old. Sometimes I find it hard to believe that I actually survived through all those years, when I recall how I was feeling.

I guess self-motivation is not always an easy task, but all I can do right now is try my best to keep motivating myself.

Many people think of me as a person with very high moral standards. I think I became the way I am not only because of how my family raised me, but also because of what I've experienced. I used to be a bit too sensitive, getting hurt so easily. I know how getting hurt feels, so I try my best to avoid hurting others (howeverrr.. when I get my first job and I had to meet many people, I hated myself for being too nice lol XD).

I wonder how much my perspective on life is going to change in the future, but for the time being, I do believe in encouragement and motivation. If people around you aren't supportive, please stay strong TT_TT and try hard to keep motivating yourself.

Peace

This little thing I want to do.

Riding a bike, which is actually a taboo for women in my society lol. I think it was my wish for 2016 but obviously it didn't happen.

I really want to learn how to ride a bicycle. And I'm gonna do it someday.

Good night.

Resident Evil 7: Biohazard is coming out soon!!

Honestly I believe that I should quit playing horror games since there is already a good deal of horror in my life lol. There are a lot of things stressing me out but I have to play this new Resident Evil game no matter what -.-" I've  pre-ordered it from Gamestop.com with $155 by the way. I've been waiting for its release since forever.

I started playing the first game in the series when I was 10 years old -_- I used to be the official hardcore gamer of my family when I was a teenager. I'm not a hardcore gamer any longer, but I'm not a casual either lol. I think I'm something in between at the moment.

You don't have to wonder how I got too much into video games. I live in a very conservative Arab society and there isn't much for a woman to do here. You know what I mean, right?

The reason why I think I really have to quit playing horror games is because I tend to be easily affected by my surroundings. I'm not saying that my personality changes easily or there is a possibility of me turning into a zombie or a cannibal or something like that. What I mean is that for the sake of my peace of mind I need to quit. I tend to dream a lot, about lots of things. Something happening today is going to be tonight's dream etc.

The dreams can be really annoying... I've had hundreds and hundreds of zombie dreams, and I swear they were always scary as hell T-T Extreme horror in my dreams! Sometimes I would have horror dreams even if I stopped playing zombie games for a long time.

I think I'm getting less and less addicted to games over time. But the dreams is definitely one of the reasons why I have to quit.

Anyway, I can't wait to play RE 7 lol. It'll be released at the end of this month ^^
