Ten Things I have learned

from watching Korean T.V. Dramas

1. Sweet and happy girls are not too bright and tend to be clumsy(and her parents are usually embarrassing)
2. If you are eavesdropping, stay until the end of the conversation
3. Smart girls are evil and/or manipulative
4. You never get over your first love(I guess it's good I married mine, then)
5. say what you mean and mean what you say
6. Don't interrupt people when they are trying to declare their love because you think they don't like you
7. Guys who are jerks have hearts of gold hidden beneath their handsome exteriors
8. The nice guy almost always loses
9. Product placement is key
10. True Love conquers all

Seriously, I think have learned a few things from my recent obsession/addiction. It has made me think about the nature of misunderstandings and the roles we play in them. In fact, I just cleared up a small misunderstanding about an email splitcat sent me(he had no idea what he had written could be read in several different ways). It's so much easier to simply ask the meaning of something instead of spending hours or days dithering over what you think it means. Of course, sometimes this is easier said than done. I have a tendency to dither rather than ask. But I am learning.
