Five Things Friday: July 7-13, 2018

This has been a really good week for starting new projects and checking things off my to-do-in-life list! So here’s some fun things I got up to!

  1. Finishing TV Shows & Starting New Ones

I’ve been binge-watching a show called Busted! on Netflix (check out the trailer here) about a rag-tag group of detectives who have to solve crimes and puzzle rooms. It’s a Korean show (subtitles included, of course), and it has been so good. It’s funny, light-hearted but keeps you invested in the plot, and I have my fingers crossed for a season two! The episodes are over an hour long (like a lot of Korean tv shows), which I love because I feel like I get a lot of content out of one season, but also means that I tend to pause and re-start a lot because I have the attention of a gnat! Would highly recommend watching, it had me laughing out loud every episode!

The new series I started to try and fill the void is called The Hollow (trailer here), and it’s an animated kids show about three kids who find themselves having to solve puzzles and figure out who they are and how they ended up in this strange place. Can you sense a theme? I love puzzles. I’ve only just started it, but so far so good!

2. Never Stop Learning

I finally finally signed up for a class through my local university that I had been dawdling about. It cost an arm and a leg, and honestly I don’t have enough pre-credentials to let it take me as far as I want to, but I truly believe that learning and education is never a wasted effort, no matter where it takes you! So I’m very excited about this! It’s a first step of sorts towards figuring out exactly what I want to do in the future, and where to go next.

3. Language Learning

I have been keeping up with my Korean studying more-or-less regularly, and I’m very happy about it. I have a tendency to drop things that I’ve picked up sort of…frequently (I wrote about learning Italian recently, which is a life-long goal of mine but fluctuates in how active I am), so this time I’m not putting any restrictions or limits on my learning. I have my notebook and resources, if I get overwhelmed or bored I can step away, and I try and supplement my language learning with different kinds of methods like I shared in this post!

4. New License

This one was spontaneous and fun for me. It doesn’t cost much or take a lot of studying to do (I say this mostly because I already have my full G license in Ontario, and road signs and rules don’t change based on your vehicle…i.e. a red light always means STOP), so I decided to take my M1 license test, and then sign up for some classes to get my riding license by the end of the summer! Just in time for winter! The time when you never ever ever want to be on a motorcycle in Canada! How very apropos of me.

5. New friends & trips

Lastly, this week a dear friend of mine came and visited my city from out of town, so we met up and hung out downtown to explore some of the summer events happening and of course get bubble tea. A lot of my friends are moving away from the city this summer, and it won’t be long before I follow behind, so just being able to spend time with friends while the weather is warm and the nights are still relatively long is a good feeling!


Hope you all had an eventful, happy week, and a fun weekend ahead!
Love always,
