요즘 바쁘지만 행복해요

I seriously like this blog. I came to like it a lot after a long time of negligence. I have like 3~4ish drafts saved but it still feels weird to write, to be honest. In front of the keyboard words just fail me and I feel like whatever I may write it will sound boring and not interesting.  Anyways, things in my life that are related to language learning are happening so why not blog about it..

These last few weeks I ”finally” got busy again. Having lot of free time is nice but laying in bed in pain all day with Korean studying in between isn’t really my style and it is boring. I started my volunteering work with AFS(exchange students programme), I did activities with international students last week and this week I am doing some orientations with the italian kids who will go on their exchange this summer. It isn’t a particular difficult task but I arrive at the end of the day very tired. Weirdly enough this tiredness didn’t slow me down with my studies at all, actually, I’ve seen a HUGE improvement in a short span of time.

My brain is starting to think in Korean. It is weird, I am not that advanced but most of the sentences elaborated in my head are coming out in Korean without me even realizing. I don’t want to sound too obsessed or anything, I hope no one gets offended by it but for me it is a big result. It means that, little by little, it is becoming more natural to my brain to process Korean and after basically a month of intense full immersion, it is no surprise to me! It reminds me of the good old days when I used to complain on Twitter about language headache. You know, that headache that occurs when you’re thinking in multiple languages all at once. I used to go crazy about it especially during my first years of high school when I was learning way too many languages at the same time.

Talking about this new skill that to me feels a bit like a victory, yesterday it got me in a quite embarrassing situation. Long story short I am taking a literacy course for my mother tongue, Sardinian. As you may or may not know, I live in Sardinia, the big island in the very centre of the Mediterranean, between Spain and Italy. Formally, we’re italians but because of culture and language we are different. The language of Sardinia is spoken by older generations because the youngers weren’t allowed to talk it or learn it in school, so often these courses are held in order to literate the population. I decided to take it, it was cheap and I really need it. Yesterday it was the first  day of lesson but I swear I couldn’t concentrate  a single bit. I was just thinking in Korean all the time and what the teacher was saying was sounding so off to me that when it was my time to speak up I was really close to say 응…좀 뭐 할까요, 제가…? 자기소개가? … and could barely manage to say ‘ I am …’ in Sardinian. That’s it. It was embarassing but kind of good for my self-esteem. I really should be more diligent when learning my mother tongue, sounds weird but… 이 기분이에요…
지금도 저는 한국어를 잘 못하는데 머리 안에서 한국어로 생각해서 영어로 쓰기를 어려워요 좀… 사실은 아까까지 공부 하고 있었어요, 너무 피곤해요. 자야 되지만 이 블로구 포스트 진짜 쓰고 싶은데 잠 안 왔어요.그런데 지금은 정말 가야 돼요. 여러분, 여기까지 읽어줘서 감사합니다, 다음 포스트 봐요!

I am really tired so I should go now, I really just wanted to write something here to be honest. I really would love to write more,  but I lack of original ideas if by chance someone here is reading and interested in something in particular, please ask, I’ll be glad to answer!
Thank you for reading and see you soon!

My translations~

Hello everyone!

I’ve just opened a new blog to post all my translations. I translate from every language I know into English or Italian. Translating songs is a good exercise to learn new vocabulary and to fix grammar stuctures. So, if you have a request you can ask me there. 

Here it is:
