People here, I've noticed, tend to keep to themselves. Rarely do they bother the person next to them, even to be excused or to apologize. Perhaps it's due to the fast pace everyone steps to.

Life in Korea... where to start. It's been an interesting experience so far. Although I could say that this trip has opened my perspective about this culture, the country, the people, and myself, I think I knew much already before I came out here.

Admittingly, some of my experiences in America were not always a big bowl of strawberry cheesecake ice cream (one of the things I miss about the States)- racism, ignorance, and just plain impoliteness to name a few.

This place has taught me a lot about its psychological history, the reason for its 'cold shoulder' attitude, and most importantly, where evil exists (especially in condensely populated areas), kindness and goodness are even harder to find.

Objectively speaking.

To be fair, I don't think I've spent enough time at historical places or seen enough of Korea. My words are just rants and raves, an attempt to find my stability, something that lacked a firm foundation for a long time, in a country that seems to be barely held together.
