She is a student attending Seoul National University Medical School that I introduced to you last time. I am writing because I want to see her and get healed while we are having a hard time with the corona virus these days.
# study with me
Among Korean YouTubers who are good at studying and pretty, many say that she is close to the top. I want to be that pretty!!
# her hobby
Her hobby is also very fruitful. I should spend my day well so that I can enjoy my hobbies, study, and eat delicious food.
There’s nothing to watch on YouTube these days. Do you have any video recommendations? Please leave a comment!
I recently found a good article, so I want to share it.
There’s a meme that was so me that I laughed really hard. It’s “the Covid 19” – a reference to gaining 19 pounds while observing social distancing.
It’s been 47 days since I started social distance. It is better that I have more time than usual but it is also more stressful. So not to blow away time, I’m managing time with Excel. I’m checking the time every 30 minutes.
I slept 6.7 hours a day on average for 47 days, worked 4.2 hours, read books 3 hours, watched movies 4.7 hours, and studied medicine 3.5 hours. I watched 18 movies and 3 seasons of drama, and I read 25 books.
There were many good days, but there were quite a few stressful days. How about you? I wonder how you manage. I worked out every morning, took a walk, and it didn’t last long. So these days, I keep trying to eat something.
Boredom… with Emotional Eating
I’ll quote an article. <Emotional eating is “the only coping toolkit we have in our bag – especially during times like now”, says Katherine Kimber, a registered dietitian and spokesperson for the British Dietetic Association.>
Also they said “another stressor at the moment is increased boredom, which is linked with emotional eating.” I totally agree. ahahaa
On a daily basis, Kamau emphasises the importance of structure as a way of boosting wellbeing. “It is important for people to carry on with having aroutine, to try to wake up at set times and go to sleep at certain times,” she says. Also, she said we should know ourselves better, and have a strategy of our own.
I’m a little depressed these days. Because my school said that I will take an exam next week. I want my flow back. Let me introduce her method.
five people you can call when you feel down
YG, NR, DE, JH, YJ
five ways you can relax
taking a walk in the morning, seeing cherry blossoms, listening to the Itaewon Class OST and watching Netflix
five places you can go to calm down
Back mountain, lake, cherry blossom tree and study cafe… (They are all within ten minutes’ distance)
five things you can say to yourself
“You’re already doing great. I believe in myself. Let me respect myself and love myself. Let’s do it with the best efficiency in the time.”
five activities you can use for distraction
I don’t know well…
I hope we’ll all be happy for the rest of our social distance. 🙂
I wonder if there was another book that shocked me this strongly.
Do you know “Rich Dad Poor Dad” by Robert Kiyosaki? I was sucked into this book about three years ago. Since then, I have read more than 100 books, but none of them are this shocking.
After that, I met “The Third Door.”
The first time I saw the book was because I was on YouTube and saw a video that someone strongly recommended the book. While searching for books, he became more attracted to me because he was a medical student like me.
Let me quote a book. “Success in life, business or almost any field you choose, is like getting into a nightclub. There are always three doors: The first door is the main entrance, where almost everyone queues, waiting and hoping to get in. The second door is the VIP door, where the celebrities and billionaires slip straight through. And then there’s the third door.”
I didn’t even know what this meant at first. On the other hand, I thought it was ridiculous. Because I’m 99% human. But I felt a lot of things when I finished reading the book in 8 hours and wrote down the part I liked for 5 hours again the next day.
I wanted to live like him! I felt an overflowing desire to challenge. I am going to explain three impressive parts of his book.
If The Third Door was a movie, what would be your 3 favorite scenes? ⠀ ⠀ Excited to hear what you think, @ me … I’m really curious, so I’ll be reading them all 🙂 ⠀ pic.twitter.com/O9CZapQ5xt
I think this is the most charming point of this book. I was in pain with Alex Banayan as I read the book, and I was rejected with him. It’s like it’s going to work, but it’s not going to work. Things didn’t seem to work out well, but he did it beautifully in his new way.
I can’t say everything to prevent spoilers. Read for yourself. You’ll be able to feel a lot. Especially the experience in Omaha, I also shed tears together. You and your friends were really the best at the “Berkshire Hathaway, Annual Shareholder’s Meeting.” I clapped and cheered together.
2. Solving problems in your own way
He met with beings with enormous insight, read numerous books, and tried to find answers. There was also a lot of help, but he solved the problems one by one in a really groundbreaking way. I won’t say much more to purposely wonder. 🙂
There is a quiz. What did he learn most from? Who? Bill Gates..? The answer is almost at the end of the book.
3. Elliott Bisnow, DREAM MENTOR
He has greatly increased the size of Alex’s life itself. Thinking and acting were all huge scale. As I read the book, I wondered if this book would have been born, if he hadn’t been a mentor. He became a friend and a brother.
He was a great man who met so many familiar people by name. What he did as a early 20s was amazing, too. It occurred to me that I could never do it.
I hope I have such a mentor, and I want to challenge myself. I will send 30 e-mails right now. Ahahaa 🙂
South Korean film Parasite has been named best picture at this year’s Oscars, becoming the first non-English language film to take the top prize. – BBC
Only 11 non-English language films have ever been nominated in the category. The cast and creative team for “Parasite” took the stage on Sunday to accept the award for best picture, capping off what was a huge night for the film and a significant night for global cinema. – CNN
On Monday, the director Bong Joon Ho’s “Parasite,” a genre-defying film about class warfare, won that award and three other Oscars, including best director. It was a historic moment for both the Oscars and South Koreans – NY times
The Korean people were all really happy and excited. I can’t believe it!
Bong Joon Ho, Oscars Best Director
In his acceptance speech of Best Director, he said “Thank you. After winning best international feature, I thought I was done for the day and was ready to relax.
Thank you so much. When I was young and studying cinema, there was a saying that I carved deep into my heart, which is that ‘The most personal is the most creative.’
That quote is from our great Martin Scorsese. When I was in school, I studied Martin Scorsese’s films. Just to be nominated was a huge honor. I never thought I would win.
When people in the U.S. were not familiar with my films, Quentin [Tarantino] always put my films on his list. He’s here, thank you so much. Quentin, I love you.
And Todd [Phillips] and Sam [Mendes], great directors that I admire. If the Academy allows, I would like to get a Texas chainsaw, split the award into five and share it with all of you.
Thank you. I will drink until next morning, thank you.”
Producer Kwak Sin-ae also said: “I’m speechless. We never imagined this to happen. I feel like a very opportune moment in history is happening right now.“
What’s the difference? Why did this happen?
I watched a parasite movie myself and even wrote reviews, but I couldn’t really feel the difference. I think, “Is this enough to attract global attention and awards?”
From my point of view, I saw nothing but the contrast between the life of the rich and the lower class, the detailed elements hidden in it and some interesting parts. I’m trying to figure out which part of parasite has won so many awards. I will post a more analytical posting next time.
“As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.” – Audrey Hepburn
Topic: Audrey Hepburn Quotes
Here’s the last word a famous person left before he or she died. That’s the sentence you should use for the ending of your article. The subject is freedom.
To give you a tip, don’t compare yourself with others!
People are always more likely to compare themselves to others who are usually superior to themselves. The same is true of writers. But the comparison is a waste of time. Respect yourself as you are. And put more effort into developing yourself! You should try only for your own development, not to compare or compete with others.
Choose a number between 1 and 10. I choose number one. She is the ‘Audrey Hepburn’ whom I should write with.
Writing practice : Audrey Hepburn Quotes #4
I can’t help but talk about her life. She was a British actress, model, dancer and humanitarian. She remains one of only 15 people who have won Academy, Emmy, Grammy, and Tony Awards. You see, she is a hugely successful movie star, but she got no jealousy that movie stars usually get when they are very successful. It is due to her good personality.
Hepburn appeared in fewer films as her life went on, devoting much of her later life to UNICEF. She had contributed to the organisation since 1954, then worked in some of the poorest communities of Africa, South America and Asia between 1988 and 1992. She was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in recognition of her work as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador in December 1992. A month later, Hepburn died of cancer at her home in Switzerland at the age of 63.
Of her first UNICEF volunteering to Ethiopia, she said “I have a broken heart. I feel desperate. I can’t stand the idea that two million people are in imminent danger of starving to death, many of them children.”
Her Life, as beautiful as her
She touched the hearts of many people. Her life shown us is as beautiful as her. Her words have also remained in the minds of many.
“Horrible. That image is too much for me. The ‘Third World’ is a term I don’t like very much, because we’re all one world. I want people to know that the largest part of humanity is suffering.“
“I saw but one glaring truth: These are not natural disasters but man-made tragedies for which there is only one man-made solution – peace.“
“As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.” said Audrey Hepburn
While backpacking, you sit in a double room on a train bound for Venice with a stranger. The only Italian I know is “How long does it take to get to Venice?” Whenever you look up, you keep making eye contact with strangers.
Even I can’t even sleep because my seat is uncomfortable. You are unable to overcome the awkward situation, so you try talking to the other person. ” How long does it take to get to Venice? ”
Choose a number. This is a passenger in a double room on a train.
Writing practice : How long does it take to get to Venice? #3
I choose number two. Topic is ‘An American college student who has already gone to all the places you want to go.’
The first sentence is this. “How long does it take to get to Venice?” Thank God. He looks my age. He said, “Venice? Hmm… 35,000 hours on foot? HAHAHA” I was relieved that I understood. He was a humorous, sociable person. I want to say “Oh, that’s dangerous to my feet. Where are you going?” The moment I opened my mouth, there was something I didn’t think of. The only Italian I know is “How long does it take to get to Venice!!!!” Damn it! After a laugh, I pretended to be cool. But I’m screaming! in my heart.
But he is genius. He introduced himself as an American college student and asked me to speak in English. “Oh, god. Great sense.” He was taking a gap year. He wanted to think about his career and have a special experience. He had already gone to all the places I want to go. For him, everything was an opportunity and everywhere was a road. I envied him a little. Because I am sometimes timid. But I have an advantage too! Right now, I’m writing.

Video was filmed to capture precious moments. However, the photographer made a muff of it. The scene was beautifully shot, but it didn’t have any sound. You came up with a great idea when you were thinking about how to revive the spoiled work.
The boring scenes are quickly wound up, the funny scenes are highlighted in slow motion, and the rest is partially edited to make a single music video. This process can also be applied to writing.
Describe an important moment for a long time and edit them freely, going back and forth between the past and the present. Now, let’s pick up the pen and talk about our precious moments.
Choose a number. It is a precious moment for you to edit in writing.
Writing practice #2
I choose number one. Topic is ‘Entrance into a school’. Let me start my story. I graduated from high school and went to medical school. Would I be happy? Hmm… I have mixed feelings. I feel much relieved and I’m happy to do what I wanted. Also, I was vaguely anxious and suffered from inferiority complex, that I could have done better. I was at a loss what to do because I just became an adult. So I looked for a lot of books, and I looked up all kinds of useful things like TED.
So what happened? Unfortunately, nothing happened. Humanities was on the rise. If I read more than 100 books, I could see my way. So I read 130 books in six months. ‘Have I changed?’ Will humans wander as long as we try? Then I knew why I was in pain. The gap between reality and ideal was too great. While the expectations grew more and more as I read books, the reality of me remained the same. So I was more frustrated. I’m lost. This was the most difficult in the days of my youth but I think it is the most valuable time. Because now I’m not just sit still. Now I just get back on my feet! I know everything is up to me. good luck 🙂
Write about a situation in which you must choose one thing at a crossroads. Take one of the two paths (or more), like the lines of Robert Frost’s ‘The Road Not Taken’ and write about a situation where everything has changed because of it.
My situation : When I found out the Lotto, which won the first prize, in the book I borrowed from a friend
1. I hand it over to my friend.
2. You take the winning lottery and change it into another one in the book.
3. Ask for some money in return for handing it to a friend.
Writing practice #1
Hmm.. I think I really agonize about what to decide. First of all, it is not option 3. This is of course his, and I don’t want my friend to know what I think. Frankly, It is true that I want the money. Isn’t the money too big?! How many things can I do? Let’s imagine. First, I am now learning Adobe Premier Pro and After Effect. I will buy related books, and computer specifications should be very very good. I will spend some money on my growth and development. But wisdom can not be bought with money. My ability is too.
What kind of person do I want to be? I want to be a person recognized as capable. I think this is the most important to me. And I also want to give a lot of support to others. I want to help people who are in trouble. I also want to connect them with people like me. Of course, I won’t always go well. In that case, I have to learn how to suffer. Money alone can’t solve everything. There will also be a problem with my conscience and sorry for him. But shouldn’t money go to a good spender? Isn’t this a big problem in the world? In the end, I will give it to my friend. I am grateful to think twice about my values. Sorry, it’s time to say good-bye. Lotto—

You can only become truly accomplished at something you love. Don’t make money your goal. Instead, pursue the things you love doing, and then do them so well that people can’t take their eyes off you.
