Blogging Again!

Taken with my Fuji F100fd digital camera.
Well, this blog has lain fallow for over three years... time for an update! So what's changed since then? The super-short summary:
  • Completed level 3 of Sogang University’s Korean language program
  • Was involuntarily relieved of over $15,000
  • Interviewed and hired at Microsoft Korea
  • Resigned from Microsoft Korea
  • Started working part-time at a college prep academy
  • Found two awesome business partners 
Of course, I skipped a lot of details in-between, but I’ll cover those in future blog posts^^ It's fitting that I am back in Busan, where I originally started this blog after discussing my childhood with my Korean mom. Reading my posts from three years ago was quite interesting; it's too bad I didn't keep up with my original plan to do one post per week. This blog has dual purposes: besides sharing my experiences with others, I want to capture those fleeting memories in my head before they're gone forever.

I’ve got lots of blog material, now:
  • Events from the past three years
  • Essay topics on Korea, usability, and education (including one idea that combines all three topics!)
  • Old photos scanned from previous travels
  • New photos taken with the digital camera I finally purchased
  • And of course, I still have the autobiography that started this whole blog; I’ll have to dig up my notes for my retrospective analysis…
      Stay tuned! In the meantime, why don’t you enjoy my previous posts?
