Adventures of a former TaLK scholar who is teaching in Korea as a GET~


Theme by: Trisha Reynolds
  • Do not dilute the truth of your potential. We often convince ourselves that we cannot change, that we cannot overcome the circumstances of our lives. That is simply not true. You have been blessed with immeasurable power to make positive changes in your life. But you can’t just wish it, you can’t just hope it, you can’t just want it… you have to LIVE it, BE it, DO it.

Don’t be fearless. Be this instead. - Nadir Keval
——————————————-
Excerpt:
To be fearless is to live and act without any sense of fear. You see, that doesn’t seem to make much sense in my mind, because it is the overcoming of fear that results in achieving greatness and growing as a person. So, in order for us to be the best we can be, we need to learn to be courageous and brave when faced with the inevitable truth of fear.
Every day, we are faced with something or the other that makes us have to push beyond our limits. Opportunity lies outside of our comfort zones. If you find that you’re not being faced with this kind of opportunity often, I suggest you take a look at your life and ask yourself if you’re really out there trying to make every day better than your last. Ask yourself if you’re really doing the things that make you happy, and striving every day to be better at it in order to master your craft. If you aren’t, please make a change and start challenging yourself on the daily, so that you can begin living life to the fullest. Every person deserves to live their best life, but it is only when we accept that truth, that we are able to begin working on making our lives and the lives of others better.

  • Language Blunders

    To get into dental school, I need a recommendation letter from a dentist. When I was talking with the dentist, instead of saying “recommendation letter,” I said “recommendation knitting machine”…A little bit later at our hweshik, the dentist pointed to a bean sprout and asked me if I knew the name in Korean. I said it was “건물” which means building XD So much fail. Am I becoming Domyoji Tsukasa?? kkkk

    치과 대학원을 들어 가고 싶으면 치과 선생님께서 추천 편지가 필요하거든. 치과 선생님이랑 같이 얘기 했을 때 “추천 편지” 말하는 대신에 “추천 편기” 말했는데..악. 좀 이따가 회식 때 치과 선생님이 젓가락으로 공나물을 쿡쿡 찌르시면서 공나물 어떻게 부르냐고 물어보셨더니 나 “건물” 대답했다..
    그 날은 패일이 너무 많았다. 아, 도묘지 츠카사가 되니?? ㅎㅎ 나 바보인가? ㅎㅎ
