Sand from a Distant Shore

For the last week I’ve been trying to compile a post, adding a little here and there… only to look at it the next day and find it totally outdated already. In deference to this, I’m just going to skip most of everything that happened (for now) and talk about Naju!

 

Home-stay:

I found out where my placement would be a few weeks ago, but I only learned about my home-stay on Monday night. That gave me only one full day, Tuesday, before my ceremonial departure on Wednesday afternoon. I didn’t know what I would do if I got a huge family — I’d gone broke shopping for gifts in Seoul, and only had enough items for three people. I also hadn’t been able to turn up any gifts for boys.

MIPtalk

20 Nov

I’ve been a frequent listener to the MIPtalk, MIPtalk what is that you say Marc? Then let me tell you! (LAWL I sound so corny) But yes MIPtalk is quite and interesting place I learned about a while back. MIPtalk consists off two intellectuals Brad Rowe and Noam Dromi who as they say themselves “Seek out deep thinkers and shallow swimmers with reckless abandon as they attempt to find out anything and everything that is interesting about the world as we know it.”

I’ve listened to various numbers of podcasts and each (in its own) has its own uniqueness that makes you want to sit back and listen to the opinions, ideas, anything that is expressed on the show. It gets really good when they have guest speakers on their show it gets really interesting (lol I seem to be saying interesting a lot but its TRUE!) like the recent podcast with Esther Jeles. I can’t really say “oh my god go now and listen to every single podcast” but if you ever have some free time, give the site a visit and see if you can find any topics that interest you. Its a really interesting site and Brad Rowe is silly sometimes making a lil joke here with Noam Dromi. But yes! Give it a shot, a listen too and see if you can also become a recent visitor to the MIPtalk world =D.
