So, here is a blog. It is going to be a blog about Korea, and the many magnificent adventures I hope to have therein.
There are three real reasons I want to write this. The first is just for me. I have one of the most atrocious memories known to… Well, it’s not bad enough that I ever forget to breathe, but I did forgot how old I was the other day. For real. If this allows me to jar up a few memories, it will be worth it.
The second is for my family and the friends who might be curious and/or paranoid about my imminent death.
And the third is to give back to the Korean ESL teacher community. My decision to go to Korea has a great deal to do with a blog I read last winter. Since then I have read at least eight blogs cover to cover, and dabbled in so many others. They’ve been so entertaining, informative, and ultimately irreplaceable in this bizarre decision to set up shop on the other side of the world. I don’t plan on “promoting” this blog anywhere, but if anyone stumbles on it the way I stumbled on others, I hope it will be helpful.
I’m not leaving for a while yet, but there’s a whole lot of “Korea” going on between now and then, so I figured I might as well begin near the beginning.
