Letter from Korea, April 2013

Suwon, South Korea
April, 2013

Dear Ireland,

I’m not sure if I should gloat but I thought I’d mention the fact that spring is in full swing here. I should also point out that that was an unintentional rhyme  but I digress. Yes, April is warming the bones and joints enough for me not to dread the walk to work, and I am optimistically eyeing the month of May on the calendar in the kitchen. The shorts and t-shirts shall be dusted down soon.

We love spring here in Korea. It’s full of things to be happy about, such as the end of winter, but also the cacophony of blossoms which explode bit by bit throughout April. Right now we’ve bright yellow kenari decorating the sides of the roads, and slowly the purple azaelas and bulbous magnolias are breaking free. Of course the nation awaits the arrival of the cherry blossoms and the plethora of festivals that accompany them.


Kimchibytes Welcomes Andy Baxley

On the web, Kimchibytes grew considerably since November.  Even in person, it’s strange to go out because if one person mentions Kimchibytes, it’s not uncommon for someone else in the group to actually know about this blog.  The responses encourage me and I would like to thank everyone who supports this blog- especially those who follow Kimchibytes by e-mail or on WordPress. As a teacher, however, it’s hard to find time to take great pictures and write articles that people will read.  I spend a considerable amount of time working on this blog and that’s why it’s had some success.


2012 Review in Blogging

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

4,329 films were submitted to the 2012 Cannes Film Festival. This blog had 21,000 views in 2012. If each view were a film, this blog would power 5 Film Festivals

2011 in review

 

Happy New Year to all. First year on this blog, started fast but ended a bit slow (in reverse of the real world). I look forward to keeping it going in 2012, maybe all the life changes can provide a bit of decent material to use.

Apparently, I don’t have a minute to spare…

…So I can’t really make the wonderful posts my regular readers will have become accustomed to.

Last time I wrote one of these posts I was very anxious about my lack of posting. Right now, I probably don’t have the time to sit down and write this post, but I’m going to do it anyway because I want to and I’m a grown up who (sometimes) can deal with the consequences of my own actions. Grrrr.

It had been bothering me up until an hour ago that because I was so busy – I am, really, in a good way – I hadn’t been able to update this blog. Then I thought about it. Of all the blogs that I subscribe to…well the regular posts from most of them have dried up. I asked myself, why? Well, it’s obvious – the writer is busy.

So I should suck it up, do the job, and when I get the time (I’m guessing June) then I can post away to my hearts content.
