Thank you Thomas for saying hi! I live an hour from cleveland and i am currently attending Youngstown State. I also went to kent state for a semester, wasnt serious then lol! I'm sure we will be chatting soon being on this wonderful web site! ;-)
Thomas, I work mostly in rural communities around eastern Oklahoma trying to help them with conversations about the future of their community...themes usually focusing around sustainable economic development, conservation of natural resources in the Ozark foothills, preservation of Native American culture and historical sites. I've done similar work in government agencies but my focus now is on places out in the rural landscape that most people never know are there. Thanks for asking. How about you?
Wow! Many interesting coincidences! It's nice to meet a fellow Clevelander online!
Yes, Korea is an interesting place. There are many changes going on here. Although it seems like a traditional society, it's undergoing rapid changes--lots of building and construction, changes in the education system (trying to emphasize and push English education), and many things related to technology. If you ever get a chance to come back, you may not recognize it. Even after being here for one year, there are some places I do not recognize after not being there for a few months because of the construction. Definitely lots of changes.
Have you gone back to Cleveland lately? (In fact, some of the things that I have mentioned about Korea I can also mention about Cleveland!)
