1Well, my Korean has failed. QQ But it’s my own doing, and there is still time to work on it. I’ve been busy. My main thing is I need to make a plan and set aside time: a little bit every day. In some ways it would be good to have structure. But that’s hard without a class, which I cannot attend. In any case, I have “basic Korean” by Andrew Byon. It’s a good book. But is dry. That’s not my main problem though. IT gives a list of vocab, and then goes into using it in the lesson. I understand the grammar, but not so much the vocab. I think my main problem with it is the lack of cognates. Compared to Spanish, where you can refer to TONS of nouns, which are pronounced super similarly in the same alphabet, Korean uses hangul to express cognates differently. Furthermore, there are very few cognates. In any case, my big problem is an inability to use my time effectively in studying vocab. I’ve used anki and the like. I just can’t stick with it. Dunno if it’s just my weak will Also have listened to some of the talktomeinkorean.com stuff. It’s all audio, and there are worksheets. Should I use these two in conjunction? The problem with that is you learn expressions first grammar later. But maybe that’s not necessarily bad? Same as with Spanish, if I can get to a basic level, I can read and gain knowledge in the language.
2) Rainmeter: Just got rainmeter 2.1. I set up a basically stock setup. Any skins you guys would suggest I add to it? Any hate? Love?
3) I just removed bumper stickers from my super conservative grandma’s car which is now mine. No longer featuring “freedom isn’t free” and “proud to be an American” and “lifetime member of the American firefighter’s association” there is room for more. Any good places for bumper stickers? I don’t necessarily want one, but I’m super curious. Tl.net bumper sticker anyone?
