Exactly half gone, and half left.

I really didn't mean to make this video so depressing.
I didn't realize how unhappy I looked until I watched the final product over again.

혜진이언니 화이팅!!!!!! Hye Jin unny FIGHTING!!!!!!

I got upset because I put a lot of effort into my last video. And then the audio didn't work. So I got a bit lazy this week with my level of fun and stuck to the bare minimums.

The first tournament of the season is just around the corner! It's crunch time for archers in Korea. This week was pretty uneventful... but next week should be a great week of shooting since we're going to be training at Apsan archery range.

혜진이언니 is at national team trials right now. I've never wanted anything so badly for another person until now. This is HUGE for her! In the video, I said she finished off the day in 7th place.. but the 3rd stage of trials goes until Thursday. So I'm praying that she'll keep up the great shooting.

The Lightning of Enlightenment!

*** ahhhhhhhh!!! I fought the law and the law won. Audio doesn't work anymore because of copywritten material in my video...BAH ***

Happy birthday, Ashley!! =)
I really wish I could've celebrated with you and all the girls...
It's been almost 21 years that we've known each other. Pretty crazy, eh?
Have a very happy 21st year.

This video was definitely one of my favourites to make!
As I mentioned in my video, shooting was absolutely amazing this week. Something just suddenly "clicked" and everything just came together. Every shot feels soooo smooth and easy and I feel like I have more control over where the arrows go.

I got to go watch an elementary and middle school archery tournament this week. I had to pick my jaw up off the ground because I was in shock. Those kids were shooting higher scores than what you might see at the senior level! It's so true that the talent in Korea runs VERY deep and starts at a VERY young age. I also got to meet some very special people, which you will see in the video! =)

Finally... YEAH THIRD YEARS!!!!!!! Good job on not losing!

See you guys next week!

The top 10 things I like about Korea

Just this weekend, Naver featured Kim Jin Ho, the Olympic medallist and professor I visited in Seoul. Unfortunately, it's all in Korean so if you don't understand Korean, get your cloesest Korean buddy and ask them to translate it for you because it's a really great article. Here's the link:

My super power revealed!!!

So this week was just another week of training.
Things at the archery range are great and the changes we've made lately are really coming together now.

We had to switch dorms and so room assignments changed a bit. I'm REALLY sad that I'm not rooming with Hye Jin unny anymore but she's just two doors away and I'm also very happy to be sharing a room with Ga Young now.

I just came back from spending the weekend with family in Busan. I had a great time and yes, I got to eat my aunt's delicious potatoes!!! =)
