Gluttons for punishment?!


I've been invited to extend my contract with KBS World Radio! Apparently I haven't offended anyone too severely during my tenure here, despite my tacky American holiday decorations and a penchant for speaking (and laughing) much too loudly in the office.

Don't worry, I read the English translation before signing!


It's hard to believe it's been almost one whole year since I started working for KBS World Radio. It feels like just yesterday I was signing a very similar document back in Illinois and faxing it off to Seoul, an unfamiliar place with an exciting opportunity. Today, eleven+ months later, Sophia guided me through the contract in person, rather than over an international telephone call.

I thank KBS for extending this opportunity which has been both professionally and personally rewarding. My experience in Korea has been more fulfilling than I ever imagined. I thank all my co-workers for making every Monday through Friday a fun and enlightening experience. And thanks especially to Sophia for your patience and perpetually eager willingness to explain things.

Now it's time to deliver some news!
