You know how when you’re worried about something, like 9 times out of 10, it turns out fine?  Well, tonight was that tenth time for me. I was supposed to interpret (Korean->English) for a forum held by an NGO about a proposed law amendment and it went TERRIBLY. There was seriously a moment where the presenter said something that I couldn’t understand and about 50 people turned to me, expecting me to interpret it. It was like a nightmare about public speaking, which I’ve never had before but probably will now.  

I will never try to do any kind of interpreting more serious than for friends at bars ever again. I want to crawl into a sleeping bad and watch lighthearted TV for a week.

On the subway just now, one ahjumma just got up and literally wrestled (like with a judo hold) her friend into taking her seat. At that point, does it really count as politeness anymore??
