KGSP - Exam Week Food

So this last week was more of the same really, just with the added bonus of TOPIK looming ahead. In exactly a week I will have completed TOPIK for the second time. I'm not sure how I feel about that tbh. It felt like I had a long time to prepare, but now that it's imminent it doesn't feel that way haha.

Like my Korean has improved since January, that's a given. But, I still have a lot more to learn and I'm not sure if I can potentially reach level 3 yet, but more on that later. Since TOPIK coincidentally coincided with midterms, we got free food again last week.

A nice looking piece of bread with sweet corn inside. 

So like last semester's midterm and final's week, the dormitory gave the students free food during the daily roll call. Last time we got it for like three nights, but this time we only got food for two days though. The first night was that bread.

It looked like a Chinese bun that I would eat at home, but there was sweet corn inside so it was weird. I only ate one. The second night we got chicken and a Pepsi. Previously we got a box of KFC so I expected that too, but this time we got something different.

Spicy marinated chicken at 11 PM.

It was ok. I had to microwave it for a bit because they gave it to us at room temperature. I didn't finish all of it though cause it was late and I didn't want to eat that much just prior to going to sleep. Thought is what counts I guess.

And I guess that last interesting food item I ate this week was some poutine. So obviously poutine is a Canadian food item, so the fact that the Hungarian bar here in Korea served it was weird to me. I finally brought myself to order it on Friday because I figured I had to try it.

Looks kinda depressing actually.

Honestly I'd give it a solid 4/10. The gravy was a weird one that was kinda ketchupy in flavour, so it didn't taste right. Plus there wasn't enough cheese on it, so it didn't really have the heaviness you normally associate with poutine.

Probably wouldn't try it again, but hey now I can say I tried poutine in Korea. Anyways back to Korean and TOPIK. My Korean has improved, but I'm not sure if it's improved to Level 3 yet. I might just be right under that so if I'm lucky I can definitely get it, but I'm not sure.

Side note: I wasn't lucky enough to find a McDonalds that still had Tiga during their Happy Meal run.

I reaaally want to get it this time cause it'll be a lot off of my shoulders and would just generally be great. I'm trying to study more, but I just can't seem to focus on anything. I get distracted way too much and it's not working.

But we'll see. This time next week TOPIK will be over and then the final chance will be in July.
