A few quick things because I'm running late as shit to get myself together and get out the door for what's going to be a pretty amazing night. Why? Because I, as I had already expected, I wasn't able to find the bus stop OUT of the way I went in, because it was my first attempt at doing so. And I suck at that. So now, without further ado:
1. Roboseyo and Gomushin Girl.... so nice to meet you! I really wish I had the time to stick around and shoot the shit. But I need to come back sometime when we can really settle in, because I'm too shy and reserved the first time meeting new people. Lovely to put faces with names. I hope to see those faces again very soon.
2. Blackout Korea blog nonsense..... look. It's fucking stupid what they've done. I know it is. But it was kind of all stupid in the first place. A lot of people are talking out of both sides of their mouths now: Those Koreans who passed out drunk in public shouldn't have done that! Didn't they know something like someone taking their photos and posting them on the internet could happen?
Well. Yeah. Where was that reasoning process when you decided to submit your photo to someone for the sole purpose of posting it on the internet in a country where you know nationalism and psychotic netizenism go hand in hand way too often?
I mean. I'm just saying.
3. The drunken foreign teacher suicide article calling for stricter and more effective screening processes for foreign teachers..... I'm sorry. I agree. I have no illusions about this resulting in anything more than more useless paperwork, rather than an actual improvement in the interviewing practices and processes, but anything to keep children safe. You have to be particular about who you allow to work with children. You do. And I will support anything that makes that possible, even if it results in more hassle for me personally. Always.
Now I'm off! Possibly not back until Monday. But I do have a lot I'm holding off on saying personally. Hwaeshik was enlightening in a lot of ways, and it seems there will be a lot of changes coming my way this year. But I'll get into it later. Take care until then, lovelies!
