I love fandom, because most of the time you can ask stupid questions and not get mocked in your comments. I love how in fandom most people respect journal spaces.

I dislike a lot of forums, because they are not like fandom. It really makes me sick sometimes when I go looking for expat information (like tax information), wind up on a site where people just bash each other, and post racist content. -__-
Since I've come back from the States I drink more coffee now. I don't drink a ton, but I am drinking it more than I am used to. I also frequent more cafe's now, even though they tend to be pricy (think 2.50 - 3.00 for a cup of americano). I go maybe once or twice a week out, so I can sit and draw. The thing I hated about Paris was how fucking slow it all was. The great thing about Korea is that it indulges, but then it's a constant ping pong game of doing things. I guess pretty much that east Asia is like that.

I'm working on my Snarry Games entry, and it's going pretty good. (Go team snitch!)

I'm also planing my trip to Hong Kong in August. I really wanted to go to Azkatraz this year, but my break is only in August (with another in January). So Hong Kong it is, with the last Disney Land on my list. This will mean I've been to all five within the last 10 years! I went to Disney California when I was 13, again to Disney World this last January, Disney Paris May 2007 and Tokyo Disney last year.

Since I teach extra classes, I might be able to pay for my trip with overtime. I'm also thinking about going back to Disney Tokyo during one of my mini vacation breaks (x-mas, or chusok).

I hope that my plans in January don't fizzle either. I'm hoping to go to Barcelona and meet up with one of my good friends. :)

Fresh markets = good

Pho = good

Duk = good

Music = good

Chinese beer = good

Makgeolli = good

Korean beer = bad

Tancheon = good

Nauseous morning after coupled with a lack of sleep = bad.

The crazy amount of calories I must have consumed yesterday = bad.

Would I do it again? In a heart beat. <3 <3 <3
Dear Brain,

You're incredibly perverse. I know right now I probably have ungodly amounts of hormones going wild, but seriously, sex dreams featuring Peter Jacobson ? Can't you be like a normal brain and focus on someone more.... IDK like Hugh Jackman, or Alan Rickman ala 1980's?

We are never getting our hair cut again if you don't stop this nonsense. Just because you feel a little bit pretty, does not mean I'm going to let you give me weird dreams like this again.

One thing that really, really irritates me now more than ever, is the oversimplification of Asian culture. I can't stand certain stereotypes, good or bad about asain culture. Just like I can't stand stereotypes about American/Canadian/British/etc. culture. Seriously, don't garner all your information from media sources. It's fun to watch movies, tv, or read comics/books. Just don't believe everything you see or read.

I had a coworker last year who would consistently talk about US politics and the US. Unfortunately this individual seem to have garnered all his information from things like CNN and pop culture. Many times my Canadian coworker and I would have to gently break it to him to stuff it.

I feel that way about people who talk about places in Asia, like it's a mythical place.

Fact- Asain nations have lots of problems too. They have a lot of good points and bad points, just like back at home!

It's been bothering me for a couple of days. There was an article in the English language news paper a few days ago, by a moronic expat, telling about how western ideas (Like teh gays and all that) are destroying Korean society. How much better Korean society is to everywhere else, yada yada yada.

Then I woke up this morning to someone taking about Memoir's of a Geisha. That book irks me because geishas were almost never prostitutes. During the occupation, you could hire prostitutes that looked like geishas, but they were not geishas!
Eh. One thing I don't like about facebook is the fact that it suggests people to you. Therefore, people who you don't want to talk to can request to be friended.

Sometimes it's a good function, because you can find lost friends, or cousins you haven't talk to. Other times it's bad because lost friends can find you, or your family can find you.

I have a problem now. I don't talk to my father, because he's a sleaze bag, to put it nicely. Now, one of his sisters would like to friend me. I have nothing against her, but she is still my father's sister.

I don't want people interfering with my non-talking to my father. It's been almost 10 years since I've seen him, and frankly, there is nothing he can do/say that would make me change my mind. The problem with that side of the family is that, there is always the possibility that they'd pressure me to reconcile, or try to talk to me about him.

I frankly don't want to. I don't even want to hear about this. I've made my choice, and frankly he might have sobered up, but he's done little else to redeem himself. It's bad enough I see him on my sisters facebook.

Now my problem is, how do I politely tell my family I frankly do not want to talk to them, because their related to someone I loath?

Damn you Facebook, damn you.

RL outside of the interwebs: A much happier note )

I managed to win a Dreamwidth account, with their open I.D random drawing. So if you are over here (there) please be adding

I was thinking about a new name, but decided against it. :/ I'm just not that creative. ^_^

As for the interwebs, I had to wait for the guy to show yesterday, and he never showed! BOOO to that. My router has power though, so I don't know if they were actually coming, or just decided to turn the switch on. meh. We will soon find out, then comes the next step, searching for a mac compatible router in a country that is pc dominate!

I wish I had more time for art recently, the good news is saturday I will be drawing again. I can't post the details yet, but I will soon!
