Answer for question 4248.

What are your thoughts on vaccinations? Do you personally believe they play any role in the development of autism or other chronic diseases? What diseases would you like to see a vaccine manufactured against over your lifetime?
People who don't vaccinate their kids are fools, unless their kid has a medical reason for not being vaccinated. I know a family whose daughter had leukemia and couldn't even have a big birthday party because of her immune system being so bad. If she ended up with some disease it could have killed her. Thankfully she is in remission now.

I left Livejournal

I had left livejournal. I just came back. I miss my communities. I have noticed that many of the users I have friended haven't posted since 2007, 2008, or 2009. Many of the communities are dead too. I do wonder what happened. I guess some of us just moved away from livejournal because we didn't have the time to blog, or started other blogs.

Email from an Advisor

I got an e-mail from my former academic advisor at Atlantic Union College. She wanted to know how I was doing and where I am these days. It was great to hear from her. I did have a good English department to study in over there. It was a good location, since Massachusetts is a centre of literary history in the USA. To this day many students of English want to study in that area.
I do miss hanging out in that old mansion which became the English department and having tea and discussions with the other students and professors. I miss the couch that was one of my favourite places to hang out on campus. I miss academia completely.

Writer's Block: Shops Gone By

Woolworths shut its doors in the U.K. last week, sending many into a frenzy of nostalgia and bargain shopping. What now-closed store or chain do you wish was still open?

I miss Ames dept. stores that were in the USA. Woolworth's in USA shut down about ten years ago. I remember a store that was in Webster, Massachusetts for 50 years and my mother went there as a kid. It shut down. Oh well, people got into malls.

Success is liking yourself,

liking what you do,

and liking how you do it.--Maya Angelou.

I have decided to go back to Korea. I will be there later this month. I will be working in eastern Seoul this time. I am looking forward to being back there. I left there two years ago. I can't believe that so much time has passed. So many fellow expatriates I met there are still living in Korea. Some of them have been there before I arrived in 2005. Friends and family of many English teachers there often can't understand why they want to be in Korea for so long. The place just grows on people. Many people plan on staying there for a short time and then stay longer than they thought they would be there. They stay for various reasons. So far I am planning on staying there a year, but I may stay there longer if I feel that I have a good reason to stay longer.

When I am over there, I hope to do lots of hiking, looking at museums, going to the theatre and orchestra, and hanging out with friends. I am glad I know of two good book stores in Seoul: "Bandi & Lunni's" at COEX and "Kyobo" at Gwanghwamun, which have great English sections. Incheon has a Kyobo near the bus station, but it's not as good. I will also buy books from Amazon.com. I do hope to get lots of reading done at home and on the subways. I want to read books on neuroscience and neurobiology, like Ramachandran and Oliver Sacks. I am planning on getting the complete works of Oliver Sacks once I get to Korea. I am also interested in Alaine de Botton's works and much more.

I have thought of studying in Korea. Sahmyook University and Seoul National University are possible choices. I will have to check out the various programmes, see what they entail, and then make a decision on what to do. Studying there would make my time there more worthwhile and I can also fund my education. It's cheaper to study in Korea than in the USA.
