Add more to my "things to do" list...
Chris (and Erik now) have dumped a few more things in my lap. Sheesh. I've got to get on the ball...although this week has turned out to be quite busy, with tomorrow being the busiest. And Nadia is on the verge of giving up naps altogether. ARGH!!

And now, the GP Weekly newsletter deadline has come (and gone, I do believe), so I should be working on another article...but I can't think of what to write about. No one gave me any feedback about what they want to read about. Anyone?

Going to bed now...my eyes can't stay open anymore. Plus, they hurt a little...they are red and irritated. Not sure why. Probably cause I keep staring at this computer screen!

What I'm feeling: drained drained

Gopets newsletter

Hi Priya,
For the news letter, you could write as to what's happened, what's happening & what to expect at the Gopets office. By reading, all readers can catch up !!
What is Gopets ? what am I missing in life ??? What value will it deliver - psychological, emotional, economical, social etc, etc..

Good luck sweety

Re: Gopets newsletter

Ok, who was this, Mom or Dad? Everyone, meet my parents! :-)

The rest of the newsletter deals with GoPets. My articles are supposed to be more about me and my experiences living in Seoul.

Priya - sorry you've been so busy! Activities have picked up for me as well, with the start of the school year this week. I really did enjoy reading your last GP Weekly articles. The interview was cute and your article was great! The way you looked at the importance of language in a community was right on! I'd love to read more about living in Korea. Perhaps I can give you some ideas? *thinks of various journal entries she made when she was abroad*

-where do you do your groccery shopping? what is that experience like? what kinds of foods have you been able or not able to find? how much has your cooking/eating changed since you moved?

-a day-in-the-life type entry, how is it different or the same from what you did in the states? What's it like to get around the city?

-have you been on any special outings? (I keep thinking of zoos in particular, don't know why!) perhaps you could describe them

-i liked to write about my favorite building or favorite or special *thing* that was available where I was living but not at home, such as carvings above a doorway or ice cream in downtown Budapest that was unlike what I could find in the states.

I'd love to hear about the little things that make living in Korea different, challenging, unique, and special. I hope some of my ideas help. I've come to realize that writing about the little things is so much easier and less intimidating than trying to answer general questions like "what's it like in [insert location here]?" Plus it gives a place character! I love the little quirks!

Hope I was able to help!
