Try translating them to improve your Korean. (Please let me know if there are any mistakes. I’m still a beginner 🙈)
second post of the day! made it through my last lecture, had a shower and most importantly, and that thing that excites me the most:
i finally, finally wrote an email to my local synagogue to ask if it's possible for me to attend any services with them.
i didn't mention it in my introduction post, but for quite a lot of time i've felt drawn to judaism and i've spent a lot of time in recent months reading and doing research about it. and i finally worked up the courage to get in touch with an actual jewish community. depending on how things go i may post separately about my experiences when it comes to learning more about and exploring judaism.
dinner time is in about an hour, so i just had a light snack earlier cause i did get a little hungry. i just wrote a lot on my journal to clean my head some more, so now i'll read the script for my literature course's lecture.
my schedule for tomorrow is also set up already which us very helpful for me when it comes to dividing up my time and using it wisely. hopefully it's gonna be a successful.
before i go to bed i'll also practice reading in hebrew by reading a children's book i found for free on a website called Evrit - a very beginner friendly book since it includes the nikud, that way it's a lot easier to get used to pronunciation and distinguishing words which look the same without the nikud.

Hey everyone . This is a small study session of 2 hours . Today went well and I will be doing a 48 hour revision marathon from 20210507-20210509 . The time lapse will be uploaded on my instagram account.
Scan the code below and follow me on ig for more updates and posts .
And again my terrible control over my sleep schedule and my time comes into play... I think it might be a Thursday thing, being the only day I go home relatively early, and that misconception of having a lot of time makes me waste my time instead of prioritising my work. I mean there comes a point where reading something new on Thursday (a trend I've started to see in myself) is not so much of a break but rather bad prioritising on my part. I need to rethink my thursday time management. Anyway its getting way too late at midnight bedtimes is not good for me so I really have to change that asap or it'll become a norm in my life and I don't want that.
smaller update: i've been a bit on the downlow the past few days because of a small slump i found myself in. i struggled a lot with getting any work at all done for uni, and then on monday and tuesday i felt very under the weather. plus, i forgot to eat and as a result i had a no-energy day on tuesday and barely even made it out of bed.
however, today i'm already feeling a lot better and i've already done a little work for my classes. my dutch homework is finished and i downloaded the script for another course too. i have one last lecture later and then some slides to read through for a lecture that can't happeb via zoom because too many students are taking said class.
soooo, there will probably be another finishing post to summarise my day later. right now i've started to set up a vocabulary notebook for all the languages i'm learning.
question of the day: are you learning any languages currently?
Wouldn’t it become much easier if we remember everything we study? So, if you want to store any information in your long-term memory, you need to create a definite learning pattern and avoid randomness. The human brain forgets almost 40% of the information just within the 24hrs of hearing it. The learning process involves the intake of any information, processing it, and then using that information later. Therefore, in the learning mechanism, note-taking is a powerful tool that shapes our cognitive learning process.
sorry for not posting as many productive study pictures...but I will be posting more of those soon to show you what I’m learning in my human sexuality class! For now, enjoy a pic of my friends and I hanging out online :3
Today, I choose empathy, and rationality. To find a balance between the two.
Today, my goals are to utilize the energy I have to get as much work done as possible while not pushing myself too hard!
Day Five: What is your favourite band? Share some of your favourite songs from them! (Bonus points if you also share your study playlist with us, or what you like to listen to to get in "the zone").
Honestly, I’m not a big “band” person. There isn’t really a band I follow (even though there are bands I like, like Led Zeppelin, Imagine Dragons and Heart), I just kind of listen to music sporadically. For study music, I mostly just listen to classical music but I have THIS playlist that is very relaxing and can help you be more focused I find!
I started to read Nothing is that Terrible by Rafael Santandreu as a way to start my self love journey, I decided to stop feeling bad and do something about it, and I must admit that so far, it’s a very good and interesting book, I can’t complain.
I also want to spread the word about what’s happening in Colombia, people are being killed by the National Police and the ESMAD (mobile anti-riot squads of the National Police) for asserting their right to protest. “Thousands of Colombians are protesting because a government tax reform, demanding the right-wing government of President Iván Duque Márquez to withdraw the proposal”.
More than 30 homicides in hands of public T security forces. WITH ONE BEING A NINTH GRADER.
9 victims of sexual abuse FROM POLICE while protesting.
56 cases if gun misuse against civilians from police.
1181 cases of police brutality.
Please share. Colombia needs help, they’re being massacred. If you want to know more thoroughly what’s happening in Colombia right now, please go to #soscolombia on Instagram and Facebook, there’s lots of information and videos that prove the suffering of Colombian people.
Finally submitted by lit essay after spending the past few days fretting about it — the only actual writing I did was 6h before the deadline even though I had 2 weeks...... Anyway I'm glad it's done. I always find myself not knowing how to write it but at the same time reallt enjoying writing lit essays, maybe because they make the text so much cooler and make me feel like I understand.
Also my sleep schedule is the most messed up its been ever, I've been slowly sleeping at times closer and closer to 12 and that is Bad because I only just pushed my bedtime to 11 this year and going go 12 so quickly has not be good on me (I feel asleep while doing my work today. At 9.30am in the morning.) So I'll have to work on that, by the usual way of hmm maybe managing my time better? Anyway I have a lot to catch up on and I'm kind of falling behind so I have to work harder to catch up asap.
Remember to also take breaks and give yourself the time to breathe and relax. Don't rush. What's for you will come just in time when you are already all set and ready. Studying may play a significant role in achieving success but without the "in betweens" success is less likely to happen. So put that pen down, close that laptop, close that book and take time to appreciate stillness. Your productivity also depends on how much time you give yourself to rest. Drink that delicious coffee, eat that sweet cookie, read your favorite book, sit down and watch the sky shining in front of you. Do something good for yourself even just for 5 minutes and you can see how it impacts your work in a positive way. 💛
