Another Summer Vacation

Dus het is nogal ironisch dat ik via 'n game tot deze conclusie kom, maar wat hebben we het eigenlijk toch goed.
Sure, overdag moeten we de hele dag leren en we worden geforced het grootste gedeelte van ons geld uit te geven aan school en huur, maar 's avonds kunnen we met 'n biertje in de hand in onze luie bank gaan zitten om PS2 games te spelen, en in het weekend hoeven we over het algemeen niks te doen. Over 'n paar jaar is dat waarschijnlijk allemaal anders.

Daar dacht ik overigens laatst ook aan: eigenlijk is elke volgende periode van het leven weer een stukje kutter dan de vorige. Als baby hoefde je niets anders te doen dan slapen en schijten, als peuter had je nog geen enkele verantwoordelijkheid buiten het spelen met je vriendjes en je best doen niet constant om te vallen, op de basisschool werd het al wat moeilijker omdat je naar school moest en goede punten moest halen, op de middelbare school werd de druk opgevoerd en moest je steeds meer huiswerk maken, op de universiteit wordt er zoveel van je verwacht dat je soms niet weet of je het allemaal wel kan waarmaken, maar dan krijg je een baan en moet je elke dag weer hetzelfde werk doen terwijl je opeens veel minder vrije tijd over houdt, en dan uiteindelijk kun je nietmeer zelf naar de wc. En toen dacht ik: goh, eigenlijk is dat dé reden om van het leven te genieten: het wordt alleen maar kutter.

Al deze wijsheid kwam opeens opborrelen toen ik Persona 4 aan het spelen was en iemand zei: "Summer vacation is coming soon, it's gonna be the last summer vacation of my life. I wonder what I should do?" Het eerste waar ik aan dacht was: "Wat dacht je van de hele dag games spelen?" En toen moest ik eraan denken hoe goed ik het had, dat ik hier in m'n lekker warme kamertje zit, een biertje naast me, zonder zorgen, want volgende week is het toch vakantie.
"Another carnavalsvakantie. I wonder what I should do?"

    XD ‘en later kan je niet meer zelf naar de wc’.. Dat stukje uit je log raakte me toch wel t meest geloof ik, en inderdaad, t doet me wel inzien dat ik t goed heb met mn lijf en wat er om heen zit aan kamertjesentourage. T is fijn om te kunnen doen wat je wilt binnen n bepaald kader en om zelf naar de wc te gaan. En: ‘als je kunt, dan moet je gaan, want voor je het weet kan je 3 dagen niet, en dat beknopt je vrijheid behoorlijk’. Dat heb ik geleerd op Sziget.

Finally, just for an instant, my life looked just like one of those Apple commercials. It's 시험기간 (test week) in Korea, so cafés are filled to the brim with students sighing profound sighs of despair as they stare blankly at a pile of books and printouts, hoping the knowledge contained within them will somehow seep into their brains if only they sigh loudly enough. It's extra fun to visit cafés around this time of the year, not just because it's infinitely fascinating to observe Korean study rituals, but also because you'll automatically feel great about the fact that you do NOT have any tests to study for and can instead sit back and go through the birthday cards your family sent you for a birthday you almost forgot is now dawning very, very near. Good luck, guys, good luck. 화이팅, 한국 학생들! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ══════════════════════ #Korea #SouthKorea #Seoul #Seoul_Korea #Cafe #Café #Seoulcafe #HUFS #Hankukuniversityofforeignstudies #Midterms #Testweek #Study #Studying #Studygram #Birthday #Birthdaycard #Sony #Tentamenweek #ZuidKorea #Verjaardag #시험기간 #공부 #공부스타그램 #카페 #외대 #외대앞 #외대카페 #생일 #생일카드 #화이팅
If you ever find yourself in Gangnam around dinner time, and, like me, worry about being too poor (or budget conscious!) to pay 'Gangnam prices' for dinner, give this little Japanese restaurant called 'MomoSara' a chance. They serve delicious handmade Japanese style 'Hambageu' for ₩9,500, which is about as cheap as you can hope for around Gangnam. They're located about a 5 minute walk from exit 2. Also, they (unfortunately) didn't pay me to write this ㅋㅋ But sometimes it's nice to write a more 'Korean Instagram'-style post. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ══════════════════════ #Korea #SouthKorea #Seoul #Seoul_Korea #Gangnam #Food #Foodstagram #Japanesefood #Hambagu #MomoSara #Gangnam #Gangnamfood #Japanese #서울 #강남 #강남맛집 #모모사라 #일본음식 #일본집 #맛집 #일본맛집 #함바그 #먹스타그램
In spring, locals and tourists alike can often be seen hunting for that perfect selca with a tree adorned with cherry blossoms in the background to let everyone on their instagram or facebook feed know that spring has started. Being from a country that I guess simply doesn't have any cherry trees, suddenly seeing the roads and campuses of Korea covered in a blanket of pink always brings a smile to my face. It's a shame there's only a limited time to enjoy them. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ══════════════════════ #Korea #SouthKorea #Seoul #Seoul_Korea #cherryblossom #sakura #blossom #spring #flowers #bloom #petals #lente #ZuidKorea #벗꽃 #봄 #서울 #피우다 #꽃 #사쿠라
Seoul, as well as other cities in Korea, has a lot of apartment complexes. This is something we're not really used to back in Europe, but such a large portion of Korean territory consists of mountainous areas that there's little choice but to build up towards the sky. Apartment complexes like this one in Goyang are generally kind of like a mini-village; housing their own supermarket, hairdresser, etc. and because a lot of families live there, restaurants and schools tend to pop up near them. I guess it's every poor student's dream to some day be able to afford to live in a place like this away from the busy city, but not so far away that you cut visit it whenever you feel like it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ══════════════════════ #Korea #SouthKorea #Seoul #Goyang #Seoul_Korea #City #Spring #Apartmentbuilding #Apartments #Flat #Flats #Koreanliving #Citylife #고양시 #고양 #아파트 #봄
8 years since he debuted at only 13 years old, 조성주, or Maru, has finally managed to bag that prize he so thoroughly deserves. As a fan, I was pretty worried about his opponent being Stats, who is a force to be reckoned with when it comes to PvT, but thankfully Maru reminded me and everyone else who might have doubted him that his skill is second to no one. Incidentally, his father also made a big impression on the fans in the Afreeca studio, with his relentless and completely adorable show of support for his son. Congratulations, Maru, and see you again in Season 2! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ══════════════════════ #Korea #SouthKorea #Seoul #Starcraft #Starcraft2 #SC2 #GSL #GSLFinal #Maru #Stats #Terran #Protoss #JinAir #esports #esport #gaming #gamer #progamer #Afreecatv #스타크래프트 #스타크래프트2 #스타2 #조성주 #김대엽 #팬 #테란 #프로토스 #진에어 #진에어그린윙스 #아프리카tv
Jin Air Greenwings Maru finally overcame his GSL curse and advanced to the finals last Saturday! He played 6 nail-biting back and forth matches against Dark, one of the best Zerg players out there and my personal favorite Zerg, but as a huge Jin Air fan I'm really happy Maru managed to pull through. On to the finals this weekend! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ══════════════════════ #Korea #SouthKorea #Seoul #GSL #Starcraft #Starcraft2 #SC2 #Terran #Zerg #Maru #Dark #Progamer #Gamer #Gaming #JinAir #Blizzard #스타 #스타2 #스타크래프트 #스타크래프트2 #조성주 #박령우 #테란 #저그 #프로게이머 #게이밍 #블리자드 #아프리카 #아프리카tv #진에어
