Day 5: 5 current goals.

How many goals do you currently have set for yourself? I have never really thought about goals and I guess it’s because I have never been asked what my current goals are. I always get asked what my future goals are. However, now that I think about it, I have to have current goals in order to fulfil my long term goals.

Why 5? Because it is day 5 of my blog challenge and I want to celebrate by having a 5 theme! Okay?!

  1. Lose weight.

Now, this is always going to be a goal for me. Is it not a goal for most of the population? I have never been slim and I probably never will be. But I feel like I need to lose weight for my health. Since moving to Korea, I have put on weight and I can tell that it needs to change. So that is one of my more important goals.

2. Keep up blogging and be recognised as a blogger.

Now this is a goal which I have, if you haven’t noticed, have started to try to reach recently. (The challenge, for my slower readers). It is something that ai realise I should have never stopped doing, because it makes me happy. It also will help towards my long term goal of being a journalist or professional blogger.

3. Be fluent in Korean.

When I first moved to Korea, I kind of had the basics of Korean, or enough to get by. Now, I have improved a lot due to being in a relationship with someone who could not speak English. But, I am not at the fluency I want yet. Not only in speaking, but also in reading/writing. I feel like this would also benefit my long term goal of wanting to be a journalist.

4. Save money.

This one is the same as my goal of losing weight. I have never been and probs never will be good at saving money. But, it is something I know I have to do and I am finally trying to do! I want to save money so that I can help my family, be able to do most of the things I want to do and to be prepared for any situation that comes my way. It could be that I want to travel or I am jobless. I need to always be financially stable.

5. Be the best version of myself.

Now this is a current and long term goal. It is also a goal that I think everyone needs to have! We are so fast to criticise ourselves and others these days. I want to be someone who is positive, sees the good side to every experience and have people like me for who I am. I know that not everyone in the world will like me, but if I am the best version of myself, I will know that there is nothing else I can do.

I know my goals are kind of bland and you have probably heard before, but it’s simple things that please me. So my goals are simple.

I wonder if any of you lovely people have a goal that I have never thought could be a goal. It’s so interesting to see and hear how different peoples goals are. So, let me know in the comment section below and I will respond to you!

Thanks for supporting and reading my blog!

2 years old!

Happy Birthday to my blog!! Today you turn two years old!

This week has been great for my blog! On Sunday I received my highest views ever on my blog, thanks to my blog post about the Jay Park concert. I received over 200 views from Korea alone and about 500 views all together in one day! And now it is my blogs birthday!

Thanks to the success of my Jay Park concert review, I am more determined to write more. Soooo, although I am not a K-Pop fan, I will be going to more K-Pop, K-Indie and K-HipHop shows. There are only a few shows in the UK, but the number of K-Pop concerts are increasing here, and I hope that K-Indie would become more popular or at the least, just have a few shows in London.

As today is my blogs birthday, I decided to read my first post and reflect on how much my blog has changed and grown.

Of course, visitors to the site have grown, but I believe my blog has kind of started to fit in to a target audience. I have always had an interest in Asian culture, but since I came back from Korea, it has been the main focus of my writing.

Having said that, my blog is still random and although I posting more about Korean related stuff, I will always have the random posts about other things.

I hope that my blog will become more successful in the future, and I think that will be more possible when I am in Korea. My goal is to receive more subscribers! Although I do get a lot of hits on here, I don’t have many subscribers (but to those of you who have subscribed, I love you the most!). With an increase of subscribers I believe my blog would be more interactive because I do want to talk with my blogs visitors and I want to write what you want me to write about. So comment below already!!

Honestly, thank you all for reading my blog posts, If it wasn’t for you guys, I wouldn’t be so motivated to actually publish my blog posts. I hope this next year will be better than my last two and I hope my blog becomes more interesting for you.

Again, Happy 2nd birthday blog!!!

I have completed education!!

Yesterday I got my results for my degree.

You are reading the blog of a student who has been awarded a Bachlour of Arts Honours degree in  Journalism – Second Class Upper division!!! I got a 2.1!

Although it isn’t the 1st I had hoped for, considering what I have been through this year with mum being hospitalised & loosing my job, I am so happy to atleast have got a 2.1! All the stress paid off!!

So now I have to step into reality & try to find a job until I can go back to Korea! It’s scary!

Having been in education for 20 years, that’s it!! I will miss education that’s for sure! Who knows? I might do a masters in Korea! Hahaha

Dreams

I don’t know why people think it’s okay to doubt your dreams.

I want to live in LA after university. I want to be a presenter or an investigative journalist, I want to fall in love like how it happens in movies & fairytales.

If you asked me what I want to do after university, listen to me. I didn’t ask you to tell me how impossible my dreams are so please, keep your negative thoughts to yourself.

I know it’s hard to make it in LA, but I’d rather struggle to get the job I love, than be in a job I don’t have the most passion for.
I know I’m a mummys’ girl & I find it hard to think about living without her, but she encourages me & it gives me tge strength to plan out & act on my dreams because I want her to be happy & proud of me.

If anyone tells you that you won’t make it, or ‘that is a very competitive industry’, don’t listen to them. When you doubt yourself & your dreams, that is when you will fail. Always think positive, ignore negativity & believe in yourself. =]
