I Feel Like A Big Deal

Hey, I’m feeling half self-important in a kind of ecstatic kind of way.

Someone went out of their way to nominate me Blog Awards Ireland 2013 in the Best Blog of the Irish Diaspora (or something like that) category. It’s, like, amazing and stuff. Thing is I’m lumped in with about sixty other blogs, including the Irish Times Generation Emigration blog (which I don’t think is fair as it’s this person’s JOB!), and other wonderful blogs like Kate Katharina, and of course Paju‘s finest WHATAWAYGOOK (yes, I often wonder if all the capitals are necessary but then again if you met the author…).


Essay on Korea’s National Image – “What is Modern Korea?”

In October I entered an essay competition organised by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade in Korea. The competition sought to find out what foreigners thought was Korea’s national image. I entered, you’ll be happy to hear, but not because of some overwhelming desire to share my thoughts on what made Korea Korea, more because top prize was a new computer, and I fancied my chances.

So I dutifully brainstormed a notion and worked away on the essay, then forgot about it, then remembered about it, and of course I waited until the last minute to submit it.
