over and out

Flying day. Suddenly on my own again. Adult time. Lame. Keep it together. Korea now.

Ate it.

Last night there was a blackout. Stuff happens during blackouts. Stuff like I ate the chocolate I intended to give my vice principal.

Good news and bad news.

Bad news: I no longer have a gift for my vice principal.

Good news: The chocolate was gross. That’s a bullet dodged :D

How I feel about Doctor Who right now, after watching the new episode.

My short reaction is that I think the writers need to relax and just tell a story. Trust the viewer to intuit motivations and unspoken emotions. Capaldi good. Liking Clara’s cardigan. Scene where she’s failing on the first day of teaching hits sort of close to home right now.

Everybody has felt at one time or another that everyone else in the world had a better shot than they did, so when you engage that, you engage the reader, and I think you create a character that brings the reader more fully into the story.
Robin Hobb. Huh! I’m going to leave this right here.
There’s a giant reservoir behind my school

according to google maps. According to my mom, all Korean reservoirs are haunted. She has told me since I was a believes-in-Santa aged kid ghost stories about the reservoir near her house when she was a kid, but no way could she let me think that was just an isolated case of Haunted Reservoir.

There was a period of time when I was in high school (I was, to put it mildly, an extremely anxious teenager) where she told me all her ghost stories (not just about reservoirs!) were made up and don’t worry about it. Once I calmed down though, growing older, she made sure to let me know that NO, ACTUALLY, ALL TRUE. And it was the first thing she said when she saw the water on the map.

Thanks, mom. This is so comforting.

(If you’re curious, the basic thrust of haunted reservoir ghosts is that if you drown in the reservoir, your soul can’t move on until you’ve convinced someone else to drown their own self in your place. So there’s a lot of ghosts ruining your life until you’re happy to do so. Jeez.)

Where did you find Tofutti ice cream in incheon??

I didn’t! I found it at Costco in Yeongdeungpo :) 

But he hadn’t been bothered by solitude, and he had especially loved the stuttering transition of seasons in New England, and all the quiet had helped him learn to see those little changes.
from the novel I’m finishing. I’m going to miss autumn in the US. There’s already candy corn at Walgreens, which is dumb, but I don’t mind seeing it.
