And so there I was, just a few minutes shy of the May 26 deadline, frantically filling out the WKB application form. But this was not the ordinary 'name-age-address-date of birth' application form. This had essay questions - the kind that would get your brain working and would make you think of your future blogging plans. Imagine me doing this during the wee hours of the night, at a time when I should be sleeping instead of zoning out in front of my laptop, lol!
Given that circumstance, I wasn't even hoping that my application would be noticed, since the guidelines clearly stated that applications will be reviewed on a 'first come, first served' basis. I also felt that I gave half-assed answers to the questions, and that there'd be a lot of seasoned bloggers out there who could have given better answers, who could write better, who have a larger social media following.
So imagine my surprise when I received that email from the WKB admin. I had to double check just to make sure my eyes weren't deceiving me. And there it was - my name was really on the list of finalists. Ah yes, I made it! I really, really made it! :)
Now I have to rack up my brain for my first post in The Korea Blog. Deadline's on Thursday, so I hope inspiration strikes before D-day. But then again, I work best under pressure. It never fails, haha! And just so you know, this is not a paid writing gig. I'm doing this for recognition and for the love of Korea. Manse, manse! (That's Korean for 'hooray')
