생일파티

Just recently, I've started writing diary entries in Korean. It's quite difficult for me since I only have a basic knowledge of Korean sentence patterns. It frustrates me because I always end up writing like an elementary school kid. But, I don't have a choice. I have to start somewhere if I want to improve my skills.

So, here's a very short diary entry I wrote last July 4. Thanks to my teacher, 정승화, for fixing it and for making it sound as natural as possible. :)



나는 어제 고등학교 친구들과 남동생을 만났다. 우리는 생일파티를 두 번 했다. 생일 파티 후, 저녁으로 피자와 파스타를 먹었다. 음식은 맛있었지만, 우리는 1시간이나 기다려야 했다. 나의 일상생활이 피곤하지만 내 친구의 재미있는 이야기로 힘이 난다. 우리는 저녁 식사를 마치고 스타벅스에서 커피를 마시고, 이야기를 더 나누었다. 그리고 나서 10시에 헤어졌다. 나는 내 친구들 또한 나만큼이나(나 못지 않게) 재미있었을거라고 믿는다.

"Yesterday, I met my high school friends and my brother. We had a double birthday celebration. We had pizza and pasta for dinner. The food was delicious but we had to wait for more than an hour. Even though I was tired because of my activities that day, I was cheered up by my friends funny stories. After dinner, we had coffee at Starbucks and talked some more. Then we decided to go home at 10pm. I believe, my friends had a lot of fun as much as I did."
