@greggr As long as you get to them eventually, I won't complain :)
I am nowhere near caught up with all of these crash course videos @nehapatel! There are so many in a series which is great, but it's going to be some time before I can really get through them. Regardless, followed the collection so I'll be able to catch up.
@nehapatel Well, thank you very much. Ha!
I can't say I'm looking forward to this one....

5 Simple Tips for Writing a Fan Letter in Korean
1. Use polite verb forms. Basically, Korean has two types of verb endings for polite speech style: ์š”(yo) and ๋‹ค(da). When writing fan letters to celebrities, ์š”(yo) form is more appropriate than ๋‹ค(da) form; ๋‹ค(da) would sound too polite and formal for that kind of letter. 2. Use polite noun forms. In Korean, some nouns have entirely different forms for plain speech and honorific speech. To be polite, use ์ €(jeo) / ์ œ(je) instead of ๋‚˜(na) / ๋‚ด(ne). ์ €(jeo) is the equivalent to โ€˜I, meโ€™ in polite speech. ๋‚˜(na) is the casual form of ์ €(jeo). ์ œ(je) is the equivalent to โ€˜myโ€™ in casual speech. ๋‚ด(ne) is the casual form of ์ œ(je). 3. But donโ€™t be too formal and too polite. Iโ€™ve noticed that a lot of Korean learners tend to use the most polite noun forms when writing. Erring on the side of politeness is, of course, always good and safe, but in this fan letter, too-formal and too-polite nouns would sound a little awkward to native speakers (that is, the celebrities who will read your letter). Do not use ๋‹น์‹ (dangshin). Instead, choose the right title for them, such as ์˜ค๋น (oppa), ์–ธ๋‹ˆ(unni), ๋ˆ„๋‚˜(nuna), or ํ˜•(hyung), and use it. 4. Choose the perfect titles for celebrities. If the people youโ€™re sending a letter to are older than you, you should use an appropriate title for them. There are four kinds of titles you would use. The most common titles are ์˜ค๋น (oppa), ์–ธ๋‹ˆ(unni), ๋ˆ„๋‚˜(nuna), and ํ˜•(hyung). But what if you would be the same age as he/she? Adding the suffix์”จ (ssi) to the name could be the appropriate solution in polite speech. When writing the letter with casual speech, you would attach ์•„ to the name ending in a consonant or ์•ผ to the name ending with a vowel. In most cases, the given names are used with the titles weโ€™ve just learned : First name + title. e.g. ์„ธํ›ˆ์”จ Sehoon-ssi (from a male/female who is the same age as Sehoon in polite speech) ๋ฐฑํ˜„์•„ baekhyun-a (from a male/female who is the same age as Baekhyun in casual speech) ์ˆ˜ํ˜ธ์•ผ Suho-ya (from a male/female who is the same age as Suho in casual speech) ๋ฏผํ˜ธ ์˜ค๋น  Minho oppa (from a female younger than Minho) ํ‹ฐํŒŒ๋‹ˆ ๋ˆ„๋‚˜ Tiffany nuna (from a male younger than Tiffany) 5. Attach ๊ป˜ or ์—๊ฒŒ to titles in the first sentence of a letter. The Korean equivalent of โ€œto / dearโ€ is โ€œ๊ป˜(kke)โ€ or โ€œ์—๊ฒŒ(ege)โ€. Though grammatically ๊ป˜(kke) is the more honorific form than ์—๊ฒŒ(ege), there is no big difference between them. Just choose whichever youโ€™d like to use. e.g. ์ค‘๊ธฐ ์˜ค๋น ๊ป˜ / ์ค‘๊ธฐ ์˜ค๋น ์—๊ฒŒ To Joongki oppa, Dear Joongki oppa (from a female younger than Joongki) Here is the entire example of a fan letter written in Korean. This letter was written to ์†ก์ค‘๊ธฐ (Joongki Song, a male Korean actor) by a younger female fan. For reference, I've made some blanks. You can freely adapt this template to suit your context, and fill in the blanks with the name of the celebrity you love! (์ค‘๊ธฐ ์˜ค๋น )์—๊ฒŒ, To Joongki oppa, ์•ˆ๋…•ํ•˜์„ธ์š”. ์ €๋Š” (์‹ฑ๊ฐ€ํด)์— ์‚ด๊ณ  ์žˆ๋Š” (์ค‘๊ธฐ ์˜ค๋น ) ํŒฌ (์ œ์‹œ์นด)์˜ˆ์š”. Hello, Iโ€™m your fan Jessica from Singapore.

Five Revelations From the Near-Perfect 'Breaking Bad' Finale
I decided to post this card based on @LauraFisher amazing card on Which TV Finale Disappointed You The Most? At first, I thought I would make a list of my favourite TV finales, but decided to go a bit deeper into Breaking Bad final, which in my case was amazing. I am not one of those super hardcore breaking bad fans, but I truly like the finale. Breaking Bad premiered its first episode on AMC in January 2008. Five years, five seasons and 62 episodes later, one of the greatest television dramas of all time came to an end as Vince Gilligan's landmark series took its final, bloody bow. In a TV landscape that has, in recent years, found it difficult to satisfyingly wrap up beloved shows in a way that hits the right emotional notes while also tying up loose ends, Breaking Bad's final episode may prove to be one of the most fulfilling and well-made farewells ever. And while we're sure to keep "Felina" on our DVRs for repeated close inspection of the episode over the next few weeks, here are a few quick takeaways. Music, Once Again, Tells the Story Breaking Bad's final moments come courtesy of Badfinger's song "Baby Blue," from their 1971 album Straight Up, and it's easy to imagine Gilligan sitting at his desk while conceiving his hit series and sticking a Post-It Note on the wall with the title of this tune in bold marker. The song's lyrics fit Walter White's journey (and its ultimate conclusion) nearly perfectly: "Guess I got what I deserve . . . / That special love I have for you / My baby blue." It's also worth noting the Marty Robbins song that plays near the beginning of the episode while Walter is stuck inside the snow-covered car he's stealing. While seemingly entombed by snow, cold breath streaming from his mouth like his soul escaping from his body, Walt opens the glove box and pulls out a Marty Robbins cassette. Once he finds the keys and gets the car started, Robbins' song "El Paso" starts playing on the stereo. Here, again, Gilligan lets the music tell Walt's story: "Maybe tomorrow / A bullet may find me. / Tonight nothing's worse than this / Pain in my heart." This is Walter White's Episode We get to visit with nearly every remaining major player in the Breaking Bad universe during the finale, but make no mistake about it: "Felina" is Walter White's episode. Skyler, Flynn, Todd and Jesse all had big (mostly devastating) moments in the penultimate episode "Granite State," and Uncle Jack and his crew got theirs in "Ozymandias." The series finale, as it rightfully should, belongs to Walter White. It's his story to finish and, through him, we get to witness the tormenting and use of his nemeses (Gretchen and Elliot), the delivery of the truth that will finally let his wife move on with her life, and the destruction of his enemies (Lydia, Todd, Uncle Jack and the rest of his gang). Jesse gets his moment to shine near the episode's conclusion, but the series ends right where it was meant to end: focused solely on Walter White. Breaking Bad Learned from Other Series Finales One of the things that have made many recent series finales so divisive is their inability to tie up loose ends, answer questions and provide closure while also delivering a deeply moving, emotional conclusion. For every fan out there that loves the mystery and intrigue of the controversial endings of Lost and The Sopranos, there are just as many (if not more) folks who cried foul because they didn't get the answers they wanted. Breaking Bad's finale pulled in nearly every net the show had cast during its five-season run. Walt's family will get his money. Gretchen and Elliot get their comeuppance (in the words of Walter White: "This is where you get to make it right."). Badger and Skinny Pete are happy. We know where the ricin capsule went. We know what Walt needed that enormous gun for. Walt finally admits the truth: that he did it all for himself, not his family. Jesse gets to kill Todd. Jesse lives. Walt dies. All of the series' big questions were answered and that makes for a very satisfying way to end a show's run. If there are a few threads left dangling, they're minor (What happens to Brock, for instance, now that Andrea is gone? Does Jesse go find him?). Unless, of course, you're Huell and you're still hanging out in that safe house wondering what the hell is going on. What Does Jesse Have Left? That extremely cathartic moment when Jesse Pinkman speeds through the gates, alive, and begins his primal scream that's a mixture of happiness, sadness, frustration, relief and elation is so incredibly telling of the character's newfound freedom. Sure, he's made it out alive. He's got his life. But what else does Pinkman have left? He has no money. His girlfriend is dead. He's been beaten both physically and psychologically, and he's a shell of the human being he was once was. Yes, Jesse got his long-awaited retribution against his former teacher when he refused to kill him even though that's what Walt wanted. Jesse is going to live, but at what cost? Maybe he'll find Brock and raise him so the kid has the life that Jesse never had. Maybe he'll meet up with Badger and Skinny Pete, or maybe he'll make that trip to Alaska after all, erasing any evidence of the life he's left behind. Who knows? Walter White Finally Accepted His Fate Breaking Bad has always been about Walter White fighting for his life. He started by fighting cancer and moved on to fighting people like Gus Fring and Uncle Jack, but no matter what he's always been fighting. On top of that, Walt was constantly lying, either to himself or to someone else. "Felina" finally put a stop to that. Walt may have come up with a plan to see certain things through in this final episode (the money, the ricin, the Nazis, etc.), but he knew all along that this was a suicide mission. Walter White didn't, for a minute, expect to make it out alive. He had finally accepted his fate. "I did it for me," he told Skyler in their final meeting. "I liked it. I was good at it. And I was really . . . I was alive." For the first time, Walt was able to admit what we all knew all along: that his meth business (and all the various criminal activity that came along with it) was for his own benefit. Cooking meth transformed him into a superhero kingpin named Heisenberg. Meth, though he never used it in the traditional sense of the word, was Walter White's drug of choice, and it killed him just like it does your common junkie. He died alone, with nothing and no one left to care about him, and surrounded by nothing but the tools that got him high.

How To Learn A New Language At Home
I've been trying to improve my French recently, and came across these awesome YouTubers called DamonandJo. They have self-taught themselves nearly 6 languages! I believe they speak French, Spanish, Portugese, Italian, German, and of course English! You can either watch the video above (which I suggest cause they have the BEST sense of humor) or check out their tips below: 1. Follow Famous YouTubers in the language you want to learn! There are tons of youtubers in other languages, and often if they are famous enough, there will be english subtitles. Listen to them to hear real people speaking the language rather than a text book! They're usually super entertaining too so it helps :) 2. Follow those YouTubers or famous people on twitter so you see that language each day! The easiest way to get used to a foreign language is to see it all the time and this really helps! 3. Change your phone/facebook/etc language to your desired language! Since you probably already know where everything is in your phone or facebook, you wont be confused and you'll learn a ton of new vocab! 4. Listen to audio books in the language you want!!! Audible has a ton of foreign language books. Try starting with a book you already know well (like Harry Potter for me - I'm trying to read that in Korean right now...) and listen throughout your day! 5. Sign up for foreign magazines or newsletters! Or even better download their app in another language! For example, my boyfriend gets push notification from Le Monde which is a french newspaper :) Even if you only read the headline, its practice. 6. Try cooking a meal using a recipe in a different language! You start to learn that a lot of words you actually already know (for example, sautรฉ means the same thing in french and in korean bokkeum (like bokkeumbap) means fried! so literally "fried rice!" 7. Watch TV shows in the language Duh!!!! 8. Talk to yourself and dont be afraid! Practice speaking whenever you can, even to people who are strangers! be brave! What languages are you trying to learn?!
