Well, not official official I guess, but it’s decided! I’ve officially started the application process to go teach in Korea starting this fall! I actually started the application stuff this past weekend but it was after emailing EPIK about the deadline for the application, since I’m in the middle of exams, and him replying that there was no deadline and that they stopped taking applications when they filled up all the positions.
Thus my reaction was - woah! I want one of those positions! One of the good ones not a leftover crappy one! (I don’t really know what I’m saying) All I knew was, I needed to hurry and get this application in! So, making plans of when to go get my criminal check, renewing my passport, all this stuff, but it was looking at the timetable of around when everything should happen (application, interview, final decision, contract, visa, flight, orientatION, START OF WORK!) that it hit me that I was finally going to do this!
It was in second year, Googling teaching abroad that I fell upon Korea and promptly fell in love with a country I had never even been to. Since then I have listen to TTMIK podcasts, bought Korean language books, studied Korean history, followed the Tumblr blogs of people teaching or studying in Korea, etc. but it was only approximately thirty minutes ago that it occurred to me that I am actually going to do this and that I am ACTUALLY going to be IN Korea come August.
In the best way.

Well done Denny’s. I gave up on you years ago but your Tumblr humour has made me want to come back! I really want bacon and pancakes now…

Of the 512 Best Picture nominees in Oscar history, only eleven were directed or co-directed by women. Only four women have been nominated for Best Director in 86 years. The first was Lina Wertmüller for Seven Beauties (1976); her film was not nominated for Best Picture. The first three women to have their films nominated for Best Picture - Randa Haines for Children of a Lesser God (1986), Penny Marshall for Awakenings (1990) and Barbra Streisand for The Prince of Tides (1991) - were not nominated for Best Director. The first film directed by a woman to be nominated for Best Picture *and* Best Director was The Piano (1993), directed by Jane Campion. It would take another ten years for a film directed by a woman to be nominated again - Lost In Translation (2003) by Sofia Coppola, who was also the youngest woman to direct a nominated film (she was 32 at the time). The first - and so far only - woman to win the Best Director award is Kathryn Bigelow for The Hurt Locker (2009). She is also the only female director to have two films be nominated for Best Picture, the second being Zero Dark Thirty (2012). One woman - Valerie Faris - has co-directed (with Jonathan Dayton) a film to a Best Picture nomination, for Little Miss Sunshine (2006). Lone Scherfig is the first - and so far only - European woman to direct a film nominated for Best Picture, for An Education (2009). The only LGBTQ woman to direct a film nominated for Best Picture is Lisa Cholodenko for The Kids Are All Right (2010). Debra Granik was nominated for her screenplay, but not for her work as director for Best Picture nominee Winter’s Bone (2010). In the 86 years of Oscar history, there have only been two years when multiple films directed by women were nominated for Best Picture: 2009 and 2010.
