Noting to my Hubae and myself

1.

1) Ways to change the world

2) Debate on spending caps

3) Using capital letters

2. grammar skills in conversation

 

2) -> At the end of the semester, students choose topics and prepare for debating in Mr. Johnson’s class. It is a great opportunity to talk with friends and share information in that we usually study reading or listening materials. When you hope to make debating classes more fun, exciting, and beneficial, I recommend you to choose a topic that you are really interested in. Talking about what you love the most encourages you to find more information and organize them in a logical way. Conversation skills naturally improve if you own a strong will to participate in debating.

          In addition to the debate, Mr. Johnson’s class dealt with grammar rules that are important but easy to confuse. Those grammar rules are not only important in writing, but important in speaking as well. Sentences are fluent and easy to understand when they make sense. The whole story becomes persuasive with close connections between sentences and sentences. As my dream is to become a lawyer, persuasive speaking skills are what I need. Even if three hundred years go by, important and famous address with excellent words that empathize with audience will remain and continue to give strong impression to people.

My favorite Hanja

My favorite Hanja is 忠(충성 충), which means loyalty and trust toward people in higher status or colleagues.

忠 consists of 中(가운데 중) and 心(마음 심). 中 means being in middle and avoiding being on an edge. 心 is a character representing our mind. We can combine these two meanings of different characters, then 忠 can literally mean one’s soul or will to conserve the equilibrium. This original meaning was modified and it means loyalty and trust nowadays.

 

 This is a poem named 사미인곡 by Jungcheol, famous poet of Joseon Dynasty. It is fairly famous among everyone who has Korean nationality because this poem frequently appears when we study about classic poems of Joseon. It mainly deals with 忠 of the poet toward king of Joseon Dynasty.

 

이 몸 사기실제 임을 쫓아 삼기시니

한생 연분이면 하늘 모를 일이련가

나하나 젋어있고 임하나 날 괴시니

이 마음이 살아 견줄데 노여 없다

 

평생에 원하오되 한데 내자 하였더니

늙게야 무슨 일로 외오 두고 그리는고

엊 그제 임을 뫼셔 광한전에올랐더니

그뎐에 어찌하여 하계에 내려오니

올적에 빗는머리 얽힌 언정 삼년일세

연지분 있네만은 늘위하여 고이할꼬

마음에 맺힌시름 첩첩히 쌓여있어

짓느니 한숨이요 지느니 눈물이라

인생은 유한한데 시름도 그지없다

 

무심한 세월은 물흐르 듯 하는고야

염량이 때를 알아 가는듯 고쳐오니

듣거니 보거니 느낄 일도 하도할사

 

동풍이 건듯불어 적설을 헤쳐내니

창밖에 심은매화 두세가지 피었세라

가뜩 냉담 한데 임향은 무슨일꼬

황혼에 달이 쫒아 벼말에 비치니

느끼듯 반기는듯 임이신가 아니신가

저 매화 걲어 내어 임계신데 보내고자

임이 나보고 어떻다 여기 실꼬

 

꽃지고 새잎나니 녹음 깔리는데

나위 적림하고 수막이 비어 있다,

부용을 걸어놓고 공작을 둘러두니

가득시름한데 날은 어찌 가돗던고

원앙금베어놓고 오색선풀쳐내어

금자에겨누어서 임의 옷지어내니

수품은 커니와 제도도 갖을시고

산호수 지게위에 백옥함에담아두고

임에게보내오리 임계신데바라보니

산인가 구름인가 머흠도 머흘시고

천리 만리 길을 뮈라서 찾아갈꼬

이거든 열어두고 날인가반기실까

 

하루밤 서릿김에 기러기 울어엘제

위룽에 혼자올라 수정렴걷는 말이

동산에 달이나고 북극에 별이뵈니

임이신가반기닌 눈눌이 절로난다

청광을 치어내어 봉황루에 붙이고자

누위에 걸어두고 팔황에 다비치어

삼산곡궁 점낮같이 댕그소서

 

건곤이 폐색하여 백설이한빛인제

사람은 커니와 날새도 그쳐있다,

소상남반도 추움이 이렇거든

옥루고쳐야 더욱 일러 무삼하리

양춘을 부쳐내어 님계신데 쏘이고자

모첨비친 해를 옥루에 올리고자

홍상을 이믜차고 취수를 반만걸어

일모수죽의 헴가림도 하도할사

짧은 해수이지어 긴밤을 고추앉아

청둥검은 곁에 전공후 놓아두고

꿈에난 임을 보려 턱받고 비꼈으니

 

하루도 열두 때 한달도 서른날

적은 덪생각말아 이시름 잊자하니

마음에 뱆혀있어 골수에깨쳤으니

편작이 열이오나 이병을 어찌하리

어와 내병이야 이님의 탓이로다

차라리 싀어지어 범나비 되오리다

꽃나무가지마다 간데 족족앉니다가

향묻은 나래로 임의 곳에 옮으리라

임이야 날인줄 모르셔도 내 임쫓으려 하노라

암금도 차도할사 이밤은 언제샐꼬

better together

sometimes I feel like lonely and tired.. it’s sure that it’s better when there is someone to lean on

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u57d4_b_YgI

Better together – Jack Johnson

There is no combination of words I could put on the back of a postcard
And no song that I could sing, but I can try for your heart
Our dreams, and they are made out of real things
Like a shoebox of photographs with sepia tone loving

Love is the answer
At least for most of the questions in my heart
Why are we here and where do we go
And how come it’s so hard
It’s not always easy and sometimes life can be deceiving
I’ll tell you one thing
It’s always better when we’re together

Mmm, it’s always better when we’re together
Yeah, we’ll look at the stars when we’re together
Well, it’s always better when we’re together
Yeah, it’s always better when we’re together

And all of these moments just might find a way into my dreams tonight
But I know that they’ll be gone when the morning light sings
Or brings new things for tomorrow night you see
That they’ll be gone too, too many things I have to do
But if all of these dreams might find their way into my day to day scene
I’d be under the impression I was somewhere in between
With only two, just me and you, not so many things we got to do
Or places we got to be, we’ll sit beneath the mango tree now

Yeah, it’s always when we’re together
Mmm, we’re somewhere in between together
Well, it’s always better when we’re together
Yeah, it’s always better when we’re together (mmm…)

I believe in memories, they look so, so pretty when I sleep
And when I wake up, you look so pretty sleeping next to me
But there is not enough time
And there is no, no song I could sing
And there is no combination of words I could say
But I will still tell you one thing
We’re better together

Had I the heaven’s embroidered cloths

 Had I the heaven’s embroidered cloths – William Butler Yeats

 Had I the heaven’s embroidered cloths
Enwrought with golden and silver light
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and the half-light,
I would spread the cloths under your feet,
But I, being poor, have only my dreams,
I have spread my dreams under your feet,
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.

I suppose many of visitors have shown this poem. Euquilibrium(2002) and 다세포소녀(Dasepo Naughty Girl, 2006) had illustrated this poem to better depict the themes of their movies. William Butler Yeats is said to have had an influence on 진달래꽃, a famous poem of Sowol Kim. (진달래꽃 is really, really famous among all Koreans) Not only is its fame recognizble, but also poem itself is very beautiful to enjoy..

everybody’s broken – bon jovi

i like its lyrics..

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AY7hQ2PcxcE

Welcome to the party
Come on in and disappear
You’re feeling like a stranger
But all your friends are here
Little lines and cracks
Around your eyes and mouth
Something’s trying to get in
Something’s trying to get out

It’s ok, to be a little broken
Everybody’s broken, in this life
It’s ok, to feel a little broken
Everybody’s broken, your alright
It’s just life

Step into the deep end
Make yourself at home
When you wonder why your breathing
Know your not alone
It’s so hard to believe
It’s easier to doubt
You’re trying to hold in
But your dying to scream out

It’s ok to be a little broken
Everybody’s broken

In this life
It’s ok to feel a little broken
Everybody’s broken, your alright
It’s alright, it’s just life

[Solo]

Take a look around
Tell me what you see
Is who you think you are
Who you want to be

It’s ok, to be a little broken
Everybody’s broken, in this life
It’s ok, to feel a little broken
Everybody’s broken, your alright
Just keep on going
Eyes wide open
Everybody’s broken
Everybody’s broken
Everybody’s broken
Everybody’s broken
Everybody’s broken
Everybody’s broken
Yeah

Debate topic and my position

THBT There should be a spending cap on the salaries offered the professional stars of soccer and other such sports. (Government)

Points I present here in this blog are totally irrelevant to supporting reasons our team is going to make in Mr. Johnson’s debate class. They are solely from my opinion.

1. Star players receive too much money so that the concentration of currency may occur. With money they get, we can solve many social problems happening all over the world.

2. There can be numerous people who want to be athletes due to their extremely high salaries. Sports’ inherent value can be deteriorated when people take advantage of sports only for money.

3. Athletes who are not top players can be promoted with spending cap. Too much gap between treatment of star players and normal players can depress players’ will to get better with their accomplishment.

Disequilibrium

When we see a particular society, the have and havenots are usually clearly divided with their social status inherited for a long period of time. Rich men provide their children with their social background and leave legacies for their descendants. This event keeps repeating, resulting in a cycle of heredity. What is happening in the whole world is same as this phenomenon. Developed countries concentrate on education for the better future, but nations in Africa are too indigent or ignorant to teach students. If there are more supports in education for Africa to give them equal opportunity, disequilibrium among the countries will be relieved.

Topics I chose from CNN notes

1. How does U.S. own an absolute power to prevent spies from Russia?

2. Why are numerous spies concentrated in America?

3. Why does Cnn and FBI reveal the fact that spies are caught?

 

1. Magic Johnson, who was a legendary basketball player, contributes his life in making better society. Is it needed that the upper-class helps the poor and uninformed?

2. How can we change the world? What things should be created, modified, or eliminated for a better society? Initially, is there any need for changing the world?

3. Nationalism vs. Cosmopolitanism. KMLA pursues a global leader with traditional spirit. In your opinion, what is a more important factor?

 

1. Why is there an unequality of education? (especially in Africa)

2. What are the aspects of a leader? Are they innate or able to be promoted by disciplines?

3. What should be the purpose of education in school?

Debate topics

The news informed us that the spies from Russia were discovered in the U.S. Their identities and information about the process of arresting them are presented. I could think of some topics after watching the clip…

1. How does U.S. own an absolute power to prevent spies from Russia?

2. Why are numerous spies concentrated in America.

3. Why does CNN and FBI reveal the fact that spies are caught.

term paper essay

In 2010, Haiti earthquake emerged as a major issue all over the world. As we realized that numerous people died of the earthquakes and a great deal of financial damage is resulted as an aftermath of earthquakes, our interest toward them drastically increased in modern days. Especially, it recently proved that Korea is not a completely safe zone from the earthquakes, and the necessity to know further about earthquakes also emerged.

Therefore, I’ll briefly introduce Haiti earthquake and the reason why we should know about earthquakes in the term paper. After appealing to readers, classification and effects of earthquakes will be introduced. The earthquake will be divided into fault earthquake, volcanic earthquake, fallen earthquake, and man-made earthquake. Shaking, ground rupture, landslides, avalanche, tsunami, and fire are going to be the examples of the impacts of the earthquakes. Last but not least, ways to prevent earthquakes will follow to help the academic information be adapted to the real situation.
