I suppose it would be accurate to sum up 2013 as "the year I moved to Berkeley and had a lot of feelings." I also read a lot of books (no surprise) and watched a lot of American television and only three Asian dramas (yes surprise) and, to judge by my diary, had a lot of feelings about those. I took a semester of Korean (excruciating but also entertaining), expanded my cooking repertoire, and went apartment-hunting twice.

It's so weird to see myself as an adult. I think it's helped me begin to think about the future, though. And I'm afraid, but also--for a change--hopeful.

Happy New Year.

You were in my weird dream last night. Hanging out with you was the best part.

Also I quote that all the time because it so wonderfully describes the terrifying kind of hope, like when my interview went well and also I miss you. And want an email with more detail :-P

Well, I re-counted and actually there were four: Flower Boy Next Door, King of Dramas, that one jdrama about the time-traveling chef and the cape-swishing warlord, and Answer Me 1997. The Korean was pretty excruciating. During the final review session, I spent the whole time doodling "a murderous intent" in my notebook like a character from a shoujo manga.

I only just discovered Emma Approved the other day and promptly binged. Book!Emma is not my favorite, but I tend to like her more in modern adaptations. I love her and Snarky Knightley and Harriet and Best Dad Ever. I'm watching The Autobiography of Jane Eyre, too, which is of course so very different in tone. It's also giving me the heebie-jeebies, because Rochester is a creepy character for sure and the whole situation is rife with Gothic weirdness and Jane has no friends to point this out to her.

Miss you too, and I owe you an equally long detail-filled email. Or at least a postcard.
