What a summer I'm having...both great and bad parts to it. I am posting a message just to let everyone know a few important things:

First, I was keeping up with this forum (and others) through Safari, which aggragates RSS feeds exactly how I wanted. But something made me go to Firefox a while back, and I regret it, because feed readers I was using weren't updating properly, and/or they were displaying things in a manner I couldn't decipher comfortably. So for weeks now, I've been missing tons and tons of your fine messages. I give up...going back to Safari. But now I have no clue what's going on with y'all. :(

Second, I'm still on vacation in France...which means my participation on anything Internet is inconsistent :wink:

Third, I had the flu up until some days ago...more inconsistent participation, in everything, and things to catch up on.

Fourth, I just recently made the decision to go to grad school - am I insane or what :shock: The last time I set foot in a university, it was when I got my BA...back in 1991! So I feel very intimidated and apprehensive, and I am looking for a nice, big, loud (and I mean LOUD!) cheering section, and lots of good advice and support. I am considering a couple of different programs, but am leaning towards an MTESOL - a Master's in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages.

Fifth, I intend to keep studying Korean here while I am running around Arizona State University like a clueless chicken with its head cut off, but I may have to ease up on the pace. So I might not learn as fast as I'd like, or participate quite as intensively. But I'm still here! If you don't hear from me every so often at least, give me a good hard elbow-jab.
On Skype, I'm nenuphar_ (just like that with the underline character ending)

Hi Bouks! Wow, sounds like there has been a lot / there's going to be a lot going on at your end!

I will miss your posts in almost every lesson! :D I know we are about the same level and so I enjoy reading your posts in Korean - partly to test my ability. You've been so cheerful on the board and encouraging as well!

Anyway, all the best in your grad school journey!

Thanks 8)

John - you're right, I can't stray too far :wink:

Shan - I am not sure what my level of participation is going to be. I might be able to comment on most of the lessons - but just not study them! :lol: :roll

The Korean class at the university is soooo tempting, but it's completely irrelevant to my study program. Plus you fabulous people aren't there. :wink:

Good luck on going back to school. I haven't been posting here in a while too (unfortunately, I have no excuse :oops: ). We need to revive this place and take over the two other places as planned! :lol:

Bouks, congratulations on your decision to go back to school! I recently toyed with the idea of persuing an advanced certification but after reviewing the material for months I fell back into my comfort zone. The thought of studying for exams again was in no way appealling. Good luck and 화이팅!
