I don’t find that i have a lot to say so I hardly ever post on my blog even though if I thought about it I probably do have more to say. But I find that most blogs these days have become this curated thing where people sound like they are chatting with their friends but it’s usually a recipe site or something like that. Blogging, which I have been a part of since it was a very nascent medium has changed into something that sounds casual but usually has a purpose beyond just rambling about life.
Work is still work and I am still me, but that fluid progression of self has marched on and I have new facets to my identity. I find myself less attached to my job and more interested in other things for the first time since I finished grad school. I think we are taught in the US especially that our whole identity is found in our careers and that’s sad to me and I am distancing myself from that cultural norm.
Lastly we are socially distancing from the COVID-19 pandemic and I find myself with more time to post because I am working from home among the world-wide pandemic scare. It’s much different than facing the students for six classes a day and it thrusts the responsibility of learning on the students in a way that they’re unaccustomed to.
Life has been a whirlwind lately and the year since I have posted has been a whirlwind of good stuff. I will make a separate post about BTS in a minute because I plan on posting a series about learning Hangul to help out ARMY who might be struggling.
