Long time no see! It’s been a busy few months and some insane life changes have been happening on my side. To offer a clue, I currently live alone and I might be moving to Seoul in the near future. Big stuff, right? Anyways, despite all that’s been going on, it’s been impossible to go for more than a few hours before having political stuff shoved in my face. I assume it’s been the same for anyone else who uses social media. I do apologize to all the non-Americans who have had to deal with everything that’s been coming from our current election.

As much as American politics has taken over the news, it should be noted that some crazy stuff has been going down in South Korea as well. Sure, there’s usually a new scandal or tragedy that shakes things up on this side of the world, but for those who don’t know, things have been on another level. If you’re curious and have absolutely no idea what I’m hinting at, I highly recommend doing some research on President Park Geun-Hye and all the recent news that has been coming out about her. I live in Gwangju, which is already known for not trusting the government, so you can only imagine the stuff that’s been said down here.

No matter what ends up happening or how things go down, I think we can all agree that 2016 is not a great year for a lot of people. That being said, I hope we can all continue to grow and do better while not hurting too many people in the process.

Enjoy the rest of your week!
