Officially accepted into Ewha Womans University!


It's already been 10 days since my last post and so much happened aaaa
(after blogging about the hottest day of the year so far, we had the first snow of the year the following weekend. Welcome to strange Danish weather).

I'm currently on my much needed and long awaited Easter break and could find some time to blog again!
Here's a recap of what I've been up to.

Emilie dropped by last Monday to buy flight tickets and we found a really good pair for just below 4500 DKK!
I could go on a whole monologue about why this is a big thing to us but in short, we have wanted to go to Korea for nearly 10 years so this is truly a dream coming true.
Although we bought them together, it didn't really hit us that this is happening, that she is going to Korea, but it probably will as we approach fall.
She'll land in Korea on October 1st and stay until October 12th!
It's still sort of far out but we're keeping the excitement going by occasionally reminding each other of all the things we'll have to do once she comes - and tagging each other in memes.

(Like this one)

Thursday I was mentor for a day for a possible future student of Korean Studies at my university!
I was a bit nervous that it'd scare her away to follow me, a senior in the hardest Korean class, but she was very satisfied that she got to see what we'd end up like rather than joining a freshman, who hadn't been part of our studies for long.
After class, Stephanie joined me in giving the potential student a tour of the university.

The next day, my sister and I went downtown to look for clothes for my mom's wedding this summer. She'd bought a dress and recommended me to buy a top with the same fabric so we could match.

I found the pants a couple of days later and fell in love. They're not for the wedding but I'm definitely bringing them with me to Korea.
Both pieces are from H&M.

Ewha's online application opened on April 15th but somehow I'd managed to apply on the 13th?
I was quite nervous about the whole thing since we'd be applying for dorms at the same time and we hadn't been given a specific time that it'd open. If my application was faulty or late somehow, I'd be put me at the bottom of dorm applicants and probably not be given one. It was hard to stay awake that night so I shot the exchange office an e-mail about my mistake before falling asleep.
Everything worked out in the end and I woke up the next morning to the message that I'd been accepted(!!)
It is now official! I am going to Ewha!

What you see above is a snap of my acceptance letter. For those who haven't been through this process and who haven't lived in Korea, everything 'official' done online can get messy. Messy in the way that many banks/schools/other official agencies ask you to use old browsers (internet explorer) and a bunch of unnecessary plugins.

The acceptance took me 2 hours to retrieve because I, of course, also needed one of those plugins and it would just not work.
This is what happens when you download Korean system files onto a computer that is not native Korean.
What is even happening here?!
Once I got the letter, I made sure to upload it to my google drive so I'll never have to go through that again. After this, my computer has stopped playing sound and I suspect that it might be because of those weird programs. But I've decided to suffer the lack of sound for now, rather than having to fight with Korean technology like that again.

I'll be on Easter break until April 24th and I'm enjoying relaxing a bit for a longer period.
It also brings me a lot of inspiration that I'm too busy to do anything about during the normal weekdays. A couple of days ago, with just about a month left before J-Popcon, I suddenly thought up two low-effort cosplays that I can make in time for the con!
I'll reveal them in another post once I've gotten my hands on the materials needed.

With all this free time (who am I kidding, I need to study), I've had time to fall in love with even more songs. The music I'll show you today are some of the never songs by one of my favorite bands, The Rose, that I hadn't had time to properly listen to before now.
There's also a Day6 song that I woke up thinking of this morning and Bol4's Stars over me (별 보러 갈래?), which came out just 2 weeks ago.
