So in the gool ol year of 2006! something happened. I had a crush (ooh, ahh) I was like 13, a 7th grader blah blah blah. Got a crush on a korean girl lolz. So of course I sat next to her whenever possible. And I got friendzoned, and my mom keeps on pestering us, and we still are good friends though
But I digress. Anyways, sat next to her in 7th grade bio, and then some strange super materialistic korean girl came o.o She had super rich parents, spoke ~=no english, and had no willpower to learn any. So then I started tutoring her during SSR (silent sustained reading) and I really got into korean and korean culture etc etc
And then she said "I don't want to learn english w/e" lol
So I started looking to learn korean, because
1) I really hate spanish
2) I'm 12 and stupid
3) It's supposedly sorta easy
4) That korean girl is hella hot (at the time...)
So I'm prodding around on youtube looking for learn korean videos. I am scarred by the beast that is kpop, blah blah blah.
Another totally separate storyline this really strange sort of retarded guy who stalked me during PE liked starcraft a lot. He was BGH guy, but he kept on harassing me to get it. So I actually got the DEMO lol, and thought it was darn cool. I'd only ever played AOE.
So I'm looking on youtube and in related links (related links sucked 4 years ago lol) it had a game uploaded on jon 747. Of course I was confused by teh title and whatnot, but :/
So I watch this, find a video response by cholera, watch it, and I love it!
I've lurked tl since then ...
This was followed up by major back surgery two years later, and being confined to a chair/bed for a month I played a lot of iccup, and got to high D. lol
But basically as an emphasis I found starcraft because I was looking at korean culture, not the other way around
In terms of korean I'm still interested in learning it. It's pretty awesome, culture is cool, there are job opportunities there, and I could translate fomos (sarcasm alert?)
Does anyone know of any good written materials?
This is a different note, but my mom is harassing me to give her a list of schools to visit over spring break. I mean, she cares, but I’m not entirely sure what I want to do in terms of a career. I was wondering if you guys had any ideas for
In terms of majors I’m interested in Economics, business, computer science, and history, (and Korean? ) but you really can’t do shit with a history degree, so disregard this
For schools I live in California, 4.2GPA, good extracurriculars, blah blah blah..
