I’m learning Korean & Here’s Why

I have more than my fair share of work on my plate. With an assignment looming, objectives for my thesis to define, full-time job, and a blog to mantain…I have hardly any time for myself. That’s exactly why I just started to learn Korean.


Sometimes, you just need something to get disconnected or better to connect you with yourself. I’m doing something that gives me instant gratification, just as for me playing an online game would.

And gaming is the catalyst and reason why I’m learning Korean. Korea’s national sport is eSports, and watching Koreans play is a marvel of modern times. Maybe, one day, I’ll be a translator…a man can dream, can’t he?

Anyhow, learning something new everyday gives joy to your long-term goals filled days.

Currently, I’m just learning the symbols and what they sound like, yet I find it insanely rewarding. I’m understanding a language that for most are just a bunch of scribbles.

I do it during my coffee break at work, while having a cup of tea after work, or as soon as I wake up. Even before I sleep.  It’s just 5 minutes, where you’ll see me tapping away on my screen and muttering sounds.

In a world where,

…New year’s resolutions last a fortnight…

…A part-time degrees take years…

…Jobs are an endless routine…

…A blog is a marathon rather than a sprint,

everyone should try reward him/herself with a short-term delight.

Treat yourself and feel fulfilled.

I'm a 30 year old soul, whose need to express himself was not satisfied by the common social media. While others vomit words with little thought, I will try my best to fill the void they have created. Born, raised, and reside on the cursed islands of Malta. I studied Sciences my whole life and always wanted to have a space where I can release my creative demons. In this blog, scientific objectiveness will meet the cry of different opinions and thought-invoking tales. Subjects will vary from the futile to the world changing.
