February is usually a pretty busy one for us because of work-related things and Korean classes starting back up for the semester. Most of the month when we’re not preparing for work-related events, I’m taking my classes during the weekend. My husband says that he can definitely see some improvements in my Korean, so although sometimes I definitely feel like I am still a newbie when it comes to learning the language, his encouragement of me makes me feel a little more confident in my acquisition so far. It’s definitely getting harder though, but it’s motivating us to speak Korean more often at home since it’s so easy to get in the habit of not doing so.
As a result of the busy month we had, we admittedly haven’t taken many photographs or read much of anything this month, so this post may look a little shorter than usual.
Anyway, here’s what’s been going on this month!
We’re still working through Last Girl Ghosted and Crying in H-Mart. Both are really good so far, but February’s typically a busy month for us, so we didn’t read as much as we did the month prior.
We’ve been continuing to listen to “Rotten Mango” but we are on the hunt for some new podcasts, so let us know if you have any good recommendations!
We watched a couple of things this month, but mostly documentaries such as The Tinder Swindler and boy, was that a wild ride.
I thought this post from Carly was pretty interesting where she shared about her postpartum experience. While I’ve always personally enjoyed her content, I think since becoming a mother, her posts have seemed rawer and more authentic. Not to say she wasn’t authentic before, but it seems less posed and more of a glimpse inside of her day-to-day and I love that.
Has Wordle become harder since the New York Times took over? Seems like it! Although they say it hasn’t, the words that were the words of the day beg to differ, because at least one of them I’ve had to Google because I was sure it wasn’t a real word and come to find out, it’s a word we don’t use here in the U.S. What do you think?
We love Abbott Elementary and we love that Quinta got to see the teacher who she says inspired the name of the show. Such a sweet, feel-good moment!
We love Kimchi pancakes (김치전), but I haven’t figured out how to make it on my own yet. Might have to try my hand at this recipe.
- Iridescent Sky: This month, as I mentioned, we didn’t really do a whole lot outside of work, but we did go on drives here and there where I caught some photos of the sky that intrigued me. The first one, the picture doesn’t do much justice for, but I told my husband that the clouds looked iridescent. It’s hard to see from the photograph but in person the clouds had various multi-colored hues to them. I remember looking at them and thinking that God is such an artist.
- Sun sets a little later: As we get closer to spring, which is less than a month away from this being posted, the sun stays out a little. Not the best photograph from my phone, but I thought the sunset was pretty that day along the grassy landscapes in Delaware. It reminded me of those summer evenings grabbing ice cream at the last minute from Woodside Creamery.
