There's a Korean word, chobo, that I think technically means "beginner." Anxious people put CHOBO stickers on their cars so that other, nearby drivers know to be careful and calm and supportive. I can't stop imagining wearing a CHOBO sticker on my lanyard or something, like just around work and town and stuff. Beginner at life, still, at 31. Approach slowly, and so on. Anyway, the cicadas in Bundang are way loud in the summer. They sound like drills right now. Most people think they're annoying, but I don't.
