Maybe it's a frog in a pond thing... I didn't realize how merciless Korea really is at the hands of USA, China, and Japan... it's like being in the middle and not being able to do what you really want because you have no choice but to tag along with whoever is nicer to you.
Now that I am outside of Korea, whatever N.Korea and S.Korea is going through seems so much worse. N.Korea threats happened often when I was in Korea, but I wasn't worried about it being there, but being away from the country makes me see how Korea is being bullied.
Naive or fooled by the media, I really thought a WWIII was going to break out... how scary... I worried about the issue much more now that I am out of the country. I worry for our friends there, the innocent, and also for the helpless country itself.
S.Korea has no choice.
It's going to be interesting to see what Korea will become with the "new president."
It's amazing how much the media can dictate your thoughts - it really got me! But once you think outside of their little propaganda, things come together. They need a bad guy. There needs to be the savior, a hero. Military spending must be go on and on and on.

I come across a blog I like, going through most of the pages ecstatic to see what they're up to - sadly to only see that their latest post was 2 years ago. No goodbyes or anything. It left me wondering how they were doing, and why they stopped posting, and wanting to ask, when are you going to be back?
Not that my blog is of much importance at all, but I don't want to leave a few folks like that because I get that feeling...
So no matter how unrelated my posts become, please bare with me. I just want to let a few of the folks know that, "hey, still here, thanks for reading!"
So, just to let you know.

Thank you God.
Those are some of the things that run in my head when I look at the current situation in Korea. There's just so much negativity and instability that it's sad to even bring it up.
We were ridiculed when we started complaining about the air quality, now it's actually become one of the #1 issues the Korean people want the new president to solve. Sometimes I'm way ahead of these things. Not to brag- but really - there's no way these things can be ignored without its consequences. I was really scared of the old princess become a president - and boy she's worse than I could have imagined. I watched her debate with the other candidate and I couldn't imagine someone so empty be a leader and at that a president. Her rule proves what Korea has become now.
Sure, it's none of my business, but it is - one affects another - who knows what the deterioration of Korea is bringing. It was built up and now it's crumbling down - and pretty fast at that.
I am really glad - more than glad - more so THANK GOD to be out of Korea.
