논문을 드디어 다 완료되었으니까 석사 데이즈 이젠 거의 끝났다. 네덜란드보다 한국에서 논문을 쓰는 게 엄청 힘들었는데, 지도교수님이랑 학생들 덕분에 읽을 만한 글을 쓰게 되었다. 이 마지막 학기 동안 삶엔 뭘 하고 싶은지 알게 될 것 같고, 창조적 글쓰기 가르치는 것을 얼마나 재밌고 보람 있는 것인지 깨달았다. 내 미래가 아직도 확실하지 않은데, 이 하나의 장을 끝내고 다른 하나를 시작하는 것을 기대하고 있다. It was a long and difficult road, but my 석사 데이즈 are finally almost behind me. Yesterday, I received (and turned in) the finalized printed version of my thesis. It was a pretty big shock finding out just how much more difficult writing a thesis is in Korea compared to back in the Netherlands, but I am happy that, with the help of my 지도교수 and students, I managed to write something worth reading. In the past year or so, I found out how much I love teaching creative writing, and how happy it makes me to read my students' creations and knowing I helped them, even in some small way, to put them to the paper. My future in Korea is as uncertain as ever, courtesy of the difficult immigration laws, but as this chapter of my life here closes, I am looking forward to writing the next. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ══════════════════════ #Korea #SouthKorea #Seoul #hankukuniversityofforeignstudies #HUFS #thesis #EFL #English #TeachingEnglish #TESOL #Mentortexts #Graduation #EnglishEducation #한국외대 #외대 #한국외국어대학교 #논문 #졸업 #영어 #영어교육 #한국생활
#대#한#민#국! I thought I was cheering for Germany tonight, since Korea couldn't advance anyway, but when we scored that first goal I realized again that, actually, I really really love this country. Seeing 손흥민 at the end brought a manly tear to my eye. 꿈 같아, 진짜. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ══════════════════════ #Korea #SouthKorea #Worldcup #Football #Germany #KoreaGermany #대한민국 #한국 #한국독일 #월드컵 #러시아월드컵 #응원 #축구 #대한민국화이팅 #대한민국파이팅 #한국사랑 #2대0
👹🇰🇷 #대한민국화이팅 🇰🇷👹 오늘은 못 이겼는데, 끝까지 응원할게! Unlike my home country of the Netherlands, Korea actually qualified for the World Cup, so I thought it was only right for me to go show my love and 열 for my second-favorite country in the world. Gwanghwamun was packed to the brim with people, which made for a really great atmosphere in spite of the buses constantly blocking our view of the screens that had been erected (because closing off streets is WAY too European). Unfortunately, we didn't manage to win, but I think we played a pretty decent match tonight. No matter what the future holds for the Korean team, I'll always be cheering for them! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ══════════════════════ #Korea #SouthKorea #Seoul #Seoul_Korea #WorldCup #WorldCup2018 #SwedenKorea #KoreaSweden #Cheer #Football #Soccer #Voetbal #Gwanghwamun #대한민국 #월드컵 #월드컵2018 #축구 #한국스웨덴 #스웨덴한국 #거리응원 #응원 #광화문 #광화문광장
TY usually tries to slip out of the studio as quickly as possible, so I was surprised to see him having a small fan meeting after the matches today. He played some amazing games against GuMiho, and as a fan I couldn't be happier to see that his form has been improving again. He's always been my favorite Terran, so I hope he'll be continuing on this path to success. The rematch for the 2016 GSL Season 1 finals between TY and Zest is slated for coming Wednesday, so definitely come down to the AfreecaTV studio if you have the opportunity! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ══════════════════════ #Afreecatv #GSL #Starcraft #Starcraft2 #SC2 #Zest #Protoss #TY #Terran #Progamer #Progaming #Gamer #Gaming #eSports #Signature #스타 #스타크래프트 #스타2 #스타크래프트2 #전태양 #주성욱 #테란 #프로토스 #e스포츠 #게이밍 #프로게이머 #게이머 #아프리카tv #싸인
Thanks to my thesis taking up pretty much every waking hour of my time, I haven't been able to see any GSL matches this season. Thankfully, now that I successfully completed my defense, it is once again 스타크래프트 타임! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ══════════════════════ #Korea #Afreeca #Afreecatv #GSL #Starcraft #Starcraft2 #SC2 #Zest #Protoss #TY #Terran #Progamer #Progaming #Gamer #Gaming #eSports #스타 #스타크래프트 #스타2 #스타크래프트2 #전태양 #주성욱 #테란 #프로토스 #e스포츠 #게이밍 #프로게이머 #게이머 #아프리카tv #아프리카
"We laymen have always been intensely curious to know ... from what sources that styrene being, the creative writer, draws his material, and how he manages to make such an impression on us with it and to arouse emotions of which, perhaps, we had not even thought ourselves capable." - Freud, 1908 My thesis on the use of Mentor Texts to teach creative writing is finally done! I successfully completed my defense today, and will be making the final revisions in the next couple of days. It has been a long and exhausting ride from the drawing board to the final line of text, but I think I've come up with something to be proud of. A big thank you to my friends and family, who supported me throughout my two year academical adventure. And an even bigger thank you to my thesis advisor Dr. Lim Hyun Woo, without whom my thesis wouldn't have been possible, and to Lee Ji Yeon, without whom I might not have even made it this far. The road ahead is still long and full of difficulties, but at least the first big hurdle has been taken. Bring on the rest. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ══════════════════════ #Korea #SouthKorea #Seoul #Seoul_Korea #Thesis #Thesisdefense #Pass #Passed #HUFS #TESOL #Education #EnglishEducation #Hankukuniversityofforeignstudies #University #외대 #한국외국어대학교 #한국외대 #논문 #논문발표 #졸업 #합격 #영어교육
