So my beloved Grandad, the main who raised me, just passed away and I’m flying thousands of miles home tomorrow for his funeral.
I’ve cried a lot, but had to suppress it during work today. I need to watch something heartbreaking to get it all out before my flight. My normal go-to for this would be The Notebook, but that’s far too close to home right now.
I’m trying to find a link to The Fault in Our Stars, but everything seems to have been recorded in the cinema on a cell phone. Has anyone got a decent link?
I’d also definitely be grateful for recommendations for any other tearjerkers if anyone has them?
Last Saturday night, PSCORE supporters turned out in full force for an amazing rock concert to raise awareness and support for North Korean refugees!
The event took place at Club Freebird 2 in Hongdae, a great venue that somewhat resembles an underground cave – in a unconsciously hipster sort of way, if that makes sense. Not being particulary into rock music myself, I honestly…
I wrote in my last post that over the coming weeks, I’ll be posting about various different ways to help North Korean refugees/get involved in the North Korea human rights crisis here in Seoul. Over the last two weeks, I’ve made two big commitments to get involved with two of the biggest non-profits working on this issue:
PSCORE – I’ll be volunteering as an ‘SNS Supporter’ for PSCORE, which…
Are you living in Seoul, interested in finding out more about the North Korea human rights crisis and what you can do to help?
Sometimes it’s hard to remember or even to believe that the world’s biggest humanitarian crisis is happening right now, and so close to us too. If you want to learn more about what’s going on just thirty miles north of us, PSCORE, the People’s Society for Corean…
So stoked about the Hobby Lobby ruling today. Officially going to incorporate myself so I can get a religious exemption for my student loans debt they violate my deeply held religious conviction that all debts are supposed to be forgiven every seven years, as per the book of Deuteronomy.
The hebrew title for Game of Thrones is actually translated to Games of the Throne. Because if we translated the english title literally, it would be the same as the Hebrew name for Musical Chairs.
this just in game of thrones is actually the world’s longest and deadliest game of musical chairs
I take such issue with how Harry named is kids, mostly with how it seems that he did all of the naming and Ginny didn’t get to add anything to it. She had amazingly strong family members, several of whom also died fighting Voldemort, including her own brother, but no that’s fine Harry please name one of your kids after Snape.
It’s the silliest thing ever, but I’m a pretty nervous traveller so when I go abroad, I tend to look for little signs that everything is going to be OK. For example, when I went interrailing around Europe, I happened to see a Doctor Who (my favourite show) advert on a high-rise building as we were travelling to the airport. I kept hearing random songs I loved that aren’t even that well-known in the UK playing in little side street cafes in the middle of nowhere in Bosnia. There were lots of other little things that I can barely even remember now - just little signs of home, totally coincidental, but they reassure me nonetheless.
I’m flying out to South Korea today for a whole year and yes, as usual, I’m pretty scared. I went downstairs this morning to get some breakfast before I go and apparently it’s Kate and William’s third wedding anniversary, so there was a huge feature on them and on baby George as I ate my breakfast. Again, total coincidence, but I love them and I feel like that was a fitting last programme send-off from the UK! Like I said, I know it’s silly (anything could be a sign), but it does bring me comfort and I’ll be hoping for a couple more today.
