KGSP - TOPIK Attempt 3

So today was TOPIK day again. Despite already passing it the last time around, I went to take it again because hey, why not. It was actually kinda nice in a way because the last time there was this pressure to pass, but this time it was pretty relaxing cause there was no pressure.

Overall the test went ok. I think my Korean got better since April, but my test writing skills we down since we stopped studying TOPIK. As a result I think I probably scored about the same as last time. My goal was level 4, but I'm not sure if I got it.

However I did get four packs of Hearthstone cards after getting an emulator running.

Aside from that this week was a bit less exciting compared to the last few weeks. Mostly just did random things. Classes are winding down a bit now and with TOPIK over, it's really the final stretch. We have two weeks left, but those two weeks have barely any class time in them.

In terms of the random stuff that happened, I got a bit of a teaser as to what to expect from the chicken video I volunteered for about a month ago. My friend recieved some brochure things in the mail that we're in, so that was kinda interesting.

I can't wait for the video to come out.

Me and my friends also held our own small Magic event at the shop this week. We wanted to do a little goodbye celebration so we donated some prizes into the event and had a standard pauper tournament. Unfortunately not that many people showed up.

And by not that many, we mean that two people outside of our group showed up to play. One of them didn't even plan on it but we got him to throw a deck together on the spot. Two others were at the shop but didn't play. Turnout was a bit sad, and I didn't do that well, but it was still fun.

One of my friends even baked some cakes.

On another random note, since I joined that volunteering thing for the Olympic committee here in Korea, I had to write my first article for them this week. It's still in draft mode, but I managed to write something about the Opening Ceremonies of the Olympics.

I realized that my writing style really just comes in two types. The first one is this type of writing which is super informal and pretty much just what I would think or say. The second one is a much more formal type where it just always sounds like a research paper.

The file was named "gray.png".

We'll see how they like that I guess haha. But yea, two weeks left to go before I go home. Pretty excited but also feeling kinda reminiscency.
