Still Writing

Hello Humans,


Early this year, I had an essay on dating app madness published in The Good Men Project:  Dear Generation Swipe.


Sometimes I get nostalgic about my time in South Korea. Though my FAQ has not been updated in five years, I'm confident that some of the cultural commentary is still relevant. If you're curious about teaching English in Korea, check it out.


Anyong,
Alex

New Column Published and Other News

As you can probably tell based on the dates of my blog entries, I am no longer Gorilla Teacher living in South Korea; I am now a third-year law student in Tennessee. Recently, I had a new essay, What I Learned from my Mom's Zumba Class, published in The Good Men Project. I am also in the revision stages of a novel; who knows what will happen with that project, but please let me know if you'd be interested in hearing about it or others in the future.

Do I miss Korea?

God, yes.

I hope you're still reading, because I'm still writing.

Five years ago,  I was getting ready to move to Bundang, South Korea. I was nervous-excited and excited-nervous. What would I think of the food? What would I think of the people? How much would I miss my family and my friends? I was twenty-two years old, fresh out of college. I thought by traveling so far away from home, I was showing that I was a man, but looking back, I see a boy in the entries I wrote on this blog in October 2007-October 2008. I was growing up, sure, but I was also living in a fantasy world where my biggest concern was whether to eat jayookdopbop or dakgalbi for dinner.

Oh, Lord, how I miss dakgalbi. And the friends I'd made. And dakgalbi.




Today, I live seven thousand and twenty-nine miles away from Bundang, South Korea.

However, don't cry for me, Argentina. Knoxville, TN has two Korean restaurants, one of which is stellar.

Anyway, if you've enjoyed reading my blog entries, I hope you'll follow me as I continue writing for various places on the web. Here are my two most recent publications.

Thanks for stopping by,

PS I know some of the pictures and links are broken on my old entries. Please forgive me. One day I will try to repair those sad red Xs and make them happy again.
