My posts here delineate the trials and tribulations of a Korean immigrant and aspiring academic/activist/cartoonist/writer who is pursuing a PhD in English literature while teaching composition and literature classes at my university. I work on Asian diasporic literature and transformations of US empire.
A little about me: I have an obsessive love for used bookstores and pianos, dote on every pup and fluffy animal I encounter, cook and bake in sporadic spurts, and enjoy reminiscing about my martial arts days (I have a second-degree black belt in Taekwondo) that let me feel much more badass than I actually am.
I desperately want to be a (small) catalyst for positive social change.
Drawing helps me achieve a modicum of peace as I attempt to navigate the rather violent and fucked world we live in.
That’s about all I can think of–so follow along on this chaotic journey to who knows where!
