Guitar Lessons

I've been taking guitar lessons for the last three weeks. When I went to my friends Sam and Young-Sook's Wedding, they had a band playing and I asked the guitar player for some guitar lessons. These lessons have been totally intense. He's teaching me some serious music theory while teaching me the guitar. It's very frustrating, because I can't do these simple things he asks me to do, but at the same time, it's absolutely fantastic. In the end, it's kicking my butt. It seems like I spend so much time practicing. I love it though and I hope to get better soon!

Busy Busy Busy

It seemed like I was beginning to be stuck in a bit of a rut towards the end of my first contract. I was basically becoming lazy. It seemed like the laziness was about to come back on full speed, but these past few weeks have been awesome. I've been able to keep myself ridiculously busy. Its actually been almost to the point of overload. I was taking Korean lessons with my friend Jin everyday which meant about 3 hrs total a day of studying Korean. I was barely finding time to play guitar and study personal economics (its funny how your focus shifts when you're no longer earning poverty wages). Now, Jin left for Thailand and the US to visit John, so hopefully I'll find a new Korean teacher soon. Also, at the wedding last weekend, I finally met an awesome guitar teacher. I've been wanting to take guitar lessons for years and this is finally my opportunity!
