and no, it's not listening to korean pop songs that evokes korea for me. or, i don't think it is. for such a long time, or until i totally mangled my discman, i listened to like magnetic fields disc 2 all the time. damn it was soo cheap! but yeah anyway walking to the bus stop (289-1!) in the smug heat in stupid clothes, stupid shoes, stupid broken ish walkman, bus card, hoping that i'd catch an early enough one that i could sit down and do my homework from the night before. i was almost always hot and sleepy in korea, usually intractably agreeable. it wasn't at all a waste of time, though at the time i was def'ly despairing of coming back in one piece...

meanwhile bag is lost and then found :^D :^D
