Korean class, taxis, and Cicadas

Today, I have Korean business language class. I am so far, we have had
two assignments. One was writing 10 sentences using 수 있다 and 수 없다
(what I can or cannot do), it was super easy because I learned that
many months before this class and the next assignment was to do the
first quiz from the book. I think I it two wrong.

Okay the result is in, I got all the questions right!
And also, we did the chapter 2 quiz in class and out of 11 questions, I
got 3 wrong :(
But also, we didn't actually go over the material in that chapter,
except for 수 있다/없다
We learned 네요 but very little. So it kinda messed up my mark.
We don't have class next week because of summer break (for schools)
but i almost wish I could go to a Korean language hagkwon or even take
the Korean at konkuk university, which is right beside me house!!!
But I will study for next time. I will study the whole chapter 3. It's
only 4 or 5 pages.

My goal by next April is to be able to take the Korean proficiency
test. ^^b wish me luck!
And by doing this test, I will then be able to apply for a job, and
maybe even take ece in university here. (or online distance). But i
really want the degree and not just the diploma. A degree actually
means more.

Also, earlier today, the crosswalk told me that is was safe to cross
the street. Well, just as I passed a taxi, he decided to run through a
red light and nearly hit me.
You see, the one really cool thing about Korea is that if you get hit
by a someone, you demand their name card or phone number and a couple
days later you call them and ask for a certain amount of money, so you
won't take them to court. Even if you are perfectly ok.
That is the first thing that came to my head when i glared at him and
he pleasantly waved to me.

And before that I actually got to see a Cicada.

Here is a picture of one


A video of one singing a lovely song.

Warning, he is loud and very high pitched.

This is a test

This is a test to see if I can send blog posts from my iPod touch.
Next time I am on blogger, I will delete this message... Maybe.

Love Katie

P.s also adding a picture

p.p.s I found out that I can also edit from my Ipod touchs browser... But only on HTML mode, I think because I couldn't get the keyboard to come up on compose mode...

Today, I slept until 12:30pm

Today, I slept until 12:30pm, played on my computer all day, ate pizza
from, played on computer again and now I'm bored. I want to
study but my brain feels fried and I don't have the enthusiasm to
study at home, I'd rather go to a cafe. Maybe I'll do that but ...
It's 7:30pm.

Omg what should I do...

Now it's 12am soon. I am on my iPod right now, because I have nothing
else to do as I cannot sleep. Gah. What should I write about?
I hope I win that draw for that magazines and crochet hooks. I really
can't find my only one.

P.S = I didn't win :( Maybe next time

이쪽으로 보세요

As I am waiting to cross the street at ssangmun station there is a
taxi blocking the side street and a cop across the first cross walk.
(this is a four lane, one way street - two for cars, two for bus)
Since it's a green light, no one can cross, not even the traffic
police, he whistles to him and yells "아저씨!" a couple times. The taxi
driver is clearly ignoring him, soI think in my head, 'should I help
the police guy ?'
I think the odds, by the time the police gets to cross the street, he
won't be able to give him a ticket because, he'll drive off. So it's
ok to help.

I knock on the passenger door and point to the other side, as at first
I forgot what to say, and he didn't know what I was doing pointing.
Then I saw, "이쪽으로 보세요" and he looks to where my finger points
and sees the police and then drives off.
The police kinda laughs and nods his head in thanks. ㅋㅋㅋ

Although then, it sounds so right and it was the first thing that came
to my head. Now that I think about it and read it, I should have said 저
I think.

Funny thing I saw in the subway:
지하철 의자는 추구골대가 아닙니다
And the guys legs were wide open as a goal post in the picture, with a
ball going towards him.

오프사이드 반칙은 싫어요
And a picture of a guy running really fast out the train with a ball

My pink shoes don't match my yellow shirt and they are getting really

There is a weird curly hair foreigner in the seat across from me and
he looks exactly like one of those stupid ones that are here because
they can't do anything in their own country. But he kept looking at
me, even still as I walk passed the outside of the train.

ughhhh so gross.
