Random Stuff...

With the creation of this new blog, I now have a venue to vent and ramble, but I promise, I will only post things here that I feel are relevant to one of the following topics: Korea, Kore-Am/Asian-Am interests, KASA itself, or Northeastern. we go.

First: I have to say, that I'm super excited about the up-coming year. We've started planning out the year, and we have a lot of things up our sleeves. I'm so happy with where this new e-board is right now; so eager and so full of ideas!! As a part of KASA for the last 3 years, and an e-board member for the past 2 years (as Treasurer, VP, and then President-elect), it thrills me to see how much it's grown in the past year, and how much potential we have to grow this coming year. Seriously guys, I'm beyond elation...^___________^

Second: This came out in the news before the blog was started, but I feel like there should be a mention about the two American journalists detained in N. Korea. There hasn't been a whole lot of information released since the initial reports and I can only hope and pray not just for their safety, but for their families and friends as well.

The topic of North Korea is one I could go on and on about for hours, so I won't bore you, but if you don't know too much about it, please do yourselves a favor and google it. Especially with their ongoing nuclear program and their reluctancy to adhere to any (if at all) UN requests, I truly believe that people need to be as informed as possible about the ongoings N. Korea. I really could keep going but I won't.

Instead, I want to end this post with some good news!

You deserve it!
P.S.- To those of you who came out to the Quad yesterday wearing RED, thanks so much!!
