I think I'm just not gonna title these anymore, unless I'm writing an article or presenting something or some special announcement. I've been looking at a lot of other people's blogs and they just post stuff randomly. Live and learn!

 Yesterday I worked at the polls for elections Canada, from 7:30am to 10:00pm. For anyone who lives in Toronto, remember Jack Layton? Sure ya do! Very unfortunately, last summer he passed away, leaving our riding unrepresented, so we needed to vote in a new representative. Hence the by-election that I was working for. Well it was pretty hard work but the pay wasn't bad and it was only one day, so that's cool. I went home and crashed right after, and that's why I woke up so early today. But what does this have to do with East Asia? Well... nothing actually, but this is my only blog after all.

And now for something to do with East Asia...
 

 I got my interview for going abroad to Yonsei University coming up this Thursday! Exciting! If you don't already know, I had been previously thinking about applying for an exchange year in South Korea. As I am an East Asian Studies specialist, who is very interested in Korea and who needs to learn Korean in order to graduate, I thought it best to go abroad to South Korea to do some dedicated learning. At first it was a bit difficult to figure out which University I wanted to go to but finally I chose Yonsei, as it has the most courses pertaining to my major. Yonsei University also happens to be South Korea's oldest university which is pretty nifty!

Yonsei University, Seoul campus in a autumn. Pretty no?
 
So I got my application in and I've been on edge for the last few weeks, waiting for my interview to be scheduled, and now, finally I got my date! Gotta say though, I'm a bit nervous. I don't really know what sort of questions they'll ask me... Oh well, I suppose honesty is the best policy. Anyway I'm fairly confident, and I REALLY want this! I'll let you know how it goes!
