Korean Stereotypes in Action

It occurred to me the other day that I haven’t written much about South Korea or Korean culture lately.  Maybe that is a good sign (assimilation?) or maybe it is just laziness.  Either way, as I was lamenting my lack of material, a new experience just dropped into my lap.  Isn’t that just the way […]

h3: Heartfelt, Heartwarming, Heartstopping

Lately I have been contemplating whether or not to become a grown-up blogger. It is a difficult decision to make. On the one hand, I do enjoy writing here.

Not so around our house.  It’s interesting that chaos in our house has an inverse relationship with the number of blog posts I write.  I guess because I write all my posts after bedtime, so you get the very tired me.  Lately, that very-tired-me has been […]
