Bulletin Board: February 9 – 15

Bulletin

Hi, Twinkles!

I am now officially in finals mode for the condensed winter term. 🙁 This week and next week should be busy…unless I end up procrastinating and blogging. *sheepish grin* In any case, I hope you’re all having a wonderful Sunday! I have a few fun announcements for you all this week, so let’s get started! 🙂 

1. Russ has his own website for his guitars and ukeleles AND has an endorsement with a music band. How cool is that? You can now check out his very own website here. He should have some photos of his masterpieces soon!

2. Meme Box is a new sort of subscription service direct from Korea that just launched in the United States last November but one that I just discovered a couple of weeks ago. Some of the Twinkles and I have been raving about this service this past week. 🙂 Keep your eyes opened for a future giveaway featuring an assortment of Meme Box items for you to try. In the meanwhile, you can take a peek at what the 4th Edition (Global Edition) contained here. The company apparently ships to a number of countries worldwide! And yes, the flurry little piece of fur to the left of the box is Bentley. LOL

3. In the coming week, you’ll see a change to our “Musings” site if all goes according to plan. Jane, one of our Twinkles, has been hard at work to design for us a brand logo. Sooooooo very cool. I’m hoping that you’ll all like LOVE the revision to our romping place. 😉

4. Yesterday, I took part in the judging of a regional essay contest here in Los Angeles called 3.1 USA Essay Contest that commemorates Korea’s March 1, 1919 Proclamation. It was a memorable experience for me personally as I saw how a new generation of Korean-Americans were tapping into their heritage by exploring one of Korea’s “modern” historical documents. This significant event got me thinking about how it would be just as meaningful for some of you Twinkles out there to explore the import of this document, especially given our love of Korean dramas and Korean history. I don’t exactly know how many would be interested, but I thought that I’d hold a mini-essay of our own here on the site. Below are the rules:

1. Please address the following prompt in an essay of no more than 500 words: “What is the Korean Proclamation made in 1919, and how does it inspire you?”

2. The essay must be the author’s original work and provide specific examples to illustrate his/her points.

3. Deadline for submission will be 11:59 PM (PST) on February 28, 2014, so that I can read the entries and prepare them for posting on this site. Yes, I am planning on sharing your wonderful essays with the rest of this community in honor of March 1st (also known in Korea as 3.1)

The essays should be emailed to me at twinkiedramas@gmail.com. Depending on the number of entries, only a handful of essays will be published on this site and awarded prizes of my choosing. Yes, I did say prizes. 😉

Anyhow, enough chit chat now. Here are the posts for this week:

  1. Hmmm essay contest? I’m tempted to explore this page of history, but I’m not sure if I really want to make a fool of myself since I usually only write in English to spazz xD Let’s just say that the content, format and depth are not on the same level as an essay xD

  2. I would like to say a Happy Birthday first to all the February Twinkles birthdays (you share with me!) and then to my hottie Choi Jin Hyuk (9th). I’m not sure if that’s his “real” birthday as celebrities like to change it for one reason or another but here’s to you my amazing man ^.~

    1. Oooh Happy Feb Birthday!!

      and I’d do the essay contest….if I didn’t have a research report to do and I’m drowning in AP Gov work =~=
