As I work on learning Korean, I have tried to get organized. I’ve consolidate my notes into one binder. I’ve separated phrases from food from colors from slang, etc. I’m organized.
And then … Reality sets in. I hear phrases I want to write down at the most inopportune moments.
So, what do I do, I grab anything in site: napkin, envelope, edge of newspaper, scrap of paper, back of a menu, at times my hand, the back of a flier, whatever! I always come home with scraps and bits of the Korean language.
Scraps of paper
Eventually all of these pieces get ‘organized’ into my binder. But, who am I kidding, I’m just patch-working my way through the language.
