Study without desire spoils the memory, and it retains nothing that it takes in.
목적 없는 공부는 기억에 해가 될 뿐이며, 머리 속에 들어온 어떤 것도 간직하지 못한다.

You’re probably not surprised that this is what I’m listening to…the whole album is fantastic! Hey, did you know Seungri can speak Japanese? Yeah. In the midst of his busy schedule, he learned a language. And perhaps he needs some work on his English, but at least he’s working on it! You should get back to studying Korean now.
Recently I went on a road trip to attend a beautiful family wedding – however the road trip itself was not beautiful. It was awful. It stormed the entire ten hours it took to drive there (it was supposed to take just under eight hours), a flipped hazmat truck caused a massive backup, and at one point the fog was so dense that we couldn’t see any of the other cars around us. I sat in the backseat with my Korean notebook, reading through my notes, hoping we wouldn’t die due to rainy weather and crazy turnpike driving, and wishing I had something I could really concentrate on besides thinking I-refuse-to-die thoughts and staring at the road signs and passing semis.
Aha! I began counting the signs in Korean.
