In my post about my fall goals (here), I mentioned that my main goal was to find a language exchange partner this fall.

April was a decent month studying-wise. Continue reading “May – The Month of Reading”
되게 오랜만이죠? ^^
This is definitely the longest I’ve ever gone without updating this blog. Over 3 months! I’ve been neck-deep in my teaching internship these past few months, and have been busier than I ever expected to be. (Hence the lack of recent posts.)
