GPA Goal Reached!

So did I ever mention that I (finally) received my two remaining marks (from the 4410 and 4416 course that I was waiting on) yesterday?!

I got a B+ in 4416, which I was a little disappointed about because I was getting A- for the quizzes, but I know I lacked in the two major papers. And I actually really enjoyed that class, so I was disappointed that I didn’t apply myself more. But actually, I found out about the mark from my professor the night before, because I took a shot and emailed him (while slightly hinting at the minimum mark I would need)… which was good, because he said he raised my mark by one point to give me the B+ (which, once again, was the disappointing part… that I had to be bumped up by one point.)

But anyway, I found out that I got an A for my 4410 course with Prof Hyun! — which I was completely stoked about because (1.) I was somewhat expecting a B+, and (2.) I didn’t do my best in the second semester. I hardly studied for the last exam (15%), and my paper was x too, though I did manage to score a B+ on it? At that point I felt like,”huh… maybe Prof Hyun does like me!”, but then my friend said that maybe… after majoring in Korean studies for so long I just innately had the skills – or enough to bs a paper on it.

Anyhow, I made the B sessional average I needed! And so now my conditional nomination to Hanyang U should be confirmed! WHOO HOO! It’s become a bit more real now, and it’s exciting!

Goodbye Fourth Year of University~

I went out with my friends today yesterday (which I hardly ever do, go out just to meet them, that is) It’s always something to do with having an errand, or having something to buy, or just… SOMETHING.
But right now, I don’t have anything to do.

School is over for me, good bye fourth year of university~ it was a swift but knowledge-filled ride.

I’m glad that’s over, but now I wait.
Wait for summer school (Guitar in S1 – May-June) to begin and end…
Wait for (possibly) Ewha Summer Language Program and that whole plan to get sorted out…
Wait for my huma 4416 and huma 4410 marks to come out…

Wait for exchange to confirm my nomination based on sessional gpa…


I have about three weeks of having nothing to do.

And I like it.

Exchange Interview…

This is surprising news to me.

I’d already been living under the belief that I hadn’t gotten in, but on Thursday I received an email asking to come in for interviews. I tried not to get excited because I was being skeptical about the opportunity. But now that a few days have passed, I’m thinking that I just might get in after all! I mean, they must be considering me at least right? I just have to do well on this interview and I just might be in!

I hope so.

(Even though just the day earlier I told my fellow Amnesiacs on skype that “hope was for the weak”. I suppose I’m at the administration’s mercy now.)

Summer schooling, 2012



Summer school is always better in terms of focusing your attention to certain courses, and not having to worry about a bunch of other ones. But then again, it’s also in danger of being abandoned due to laziness… having to bus all the way to school and back, “just for school”… =___=.
