Random thoughts

I was flipping through the Yonsei Annals (a monthly English-language, student-driven publication) today and came across a two-page spread on the pros and cons of same-sex marriage legalization. Sure, the story lacked any depth (the intro amusingly attempted to define the term "coming out" via Brokeback Mountain scenes) and this country has a long road ahead (in terms of breaking through conservatism), but it was refreshing to see the issue being raised in print...

Anyway, I'm taking part in a study on "digital visualization of culture," and have consequently started to think about how I can best express the culture of Seoul through photos... Where do I start? Here are a few ideas.
  • Ajumma, Defined
  • Mini Skirt Mania
  • The Man Purse x2 (Theirs and Their GFs)
  • Couple Clothes
  • Self Portraits - Vanity or Just Plain Fun?
  • Drinky...Drinky...Drinky...
  • Shove Me, Shove Me, But Don't Say That You're Sorry (This only works if you sing it to the tune of the Cardigans' Lovefool)
  • Mobile Addiction
  • Why Is Everything So Freakin' Cute in This City?!
Haha. Despite appearances, I'm not trying to be the least bit sarcastic. This will be fun. I love this city, and now I have an excuse to take even MORE pictures. : )

On a side note, I feel inspired. Today I sat at a cafe with three other gal pals, and we managed to have a conversation in three different languages. Sort of. It was pretty darn cool if you ask me.

Now... time to get some work done!

Hi, nice to meet you!
I'm Aya (japanese), going to go to Korea in June by working holiday.
And I also go to Yonsei language school. When I was searching about Korea, found your blog!
If you're okay, please keep in touch :-)
