The person behind the blog
My name is Eugine. Although born and raised in South Korea until I was 11, I now have a multicultural self-identity. I’m a writer and a reader, and also a student of English literature and linguistics, among other things. I have so many different and contradictory personalities – depending on my moods – that I question my sanity on a regular basis. I sometimes struggle with anxiety and depression. I strive for honesty, authenticity and all-encompassing acceptance. And because I am ignorant, I tend to take myself too seriously! :)

About this blog
Started in April 2013, this blog is a disarrayed collection of book talks, personal struggles with academia and life, and other, deeply personal and potentially embarrassing writings. I still can’t believe people are reading this stuff.

  1. It’s great that you’ve started this blog! I still need to finish the Summer series and it’s wonderful that it inspired your blog’s URL/title. Looking forward to reading what you have to write.
