New American Reality

(I'm back--in Korea and here on my blog):

Well, that election didn't go as planned.

However, time to wake up America to the person you voted for as president.

He is not a nice person: he lies, he has allegedly cheated his workers, he has accepted Russian propaganda at face value, his wife cheated on immigration, he loves filing lawsuits and may continue to do so as President . . . but supposedly all of this was known before the election.

One deeply troubling thing is that perhaps many Americans knew of these faults-- these multiple ___isms--and yet voted for the person anyway, despite knowing that many leaders and people around the world do not want to have anything to do with this elected official.

That's why some stocks and currencies are dropping deeply as I write this.

Tomorrow will be a deeply changed day for people around the world, and maybe not for the better.

Leaving Korea

In about 1 week I will be leaving Korea.

I don't really want to, as I enjoy living here--and where I live is so very convenient--yet it is time for a change.

So I will depart for America: the land of Trump-claiming-the-elections-are-rigged.

Sigh.

What a loser.

Yesterday, Friday, I said "Goodbye!" to my MWF students.  We had snack parties and played hangman and Quiddler  (if you are a teacher you should be using the Quiddler card game--it is like Scrabble but with cards).
