Whatever Happened To…Kchat Jjigae?

Posted by Stephanie on May 25, 2017


(If you listen to the podcast, you probably already know this news, but for the sake of the others, pretend to be surprised.)

If you’ve been around Kchat (or long enough to remember Crazy for Kdrama) you’ll know that as of late there has been a real decrease in the amount of posting here. (Thanks, SaraG and KpopontheDL for keeping us alive!) This has been due in large part to the new schedule to my job and more importantly, the length of my commute. However. There is a plan in place which will hopefully help solve this vexing issue. Ready? Hold onto your hat! This is big.

I’m moving! 

Okay. So I’m not really moving to get more content up, but hopefully, it will be a nice side benefit as I’m moving to a place where cars live and my commute won’t clock in at a good hour twenty. So, where are we moving?

Denver! Yep. Colorado.

How did this happen? Gah. I’m not entirely certain, however, I’m pretty certain it’s SaraG’s fault. She was all, you should move to Denver, I’m all, what? She’s all, remember that time I said you should move to Denver? It’s still a good idea. I’m all. Umm…no. She’s all, hey, see this picture of me and Alix having fun? Or this one? Or how about this one? See this space here? That could be you! I’m all…huh…interesting? Alix is all, hey, move to Colorado and you can stay with me! I’m all…

Cool. Count me in.

Although, at this point, I’m not entirely certain even that much thought went into it… Anyway. Yep, I live in NY. NY is hella cool. However, I’ve known for a long time that it wasn’t quite the right fit for me to stay for the long run. Despite Kpop bands. Despite Ktown. Despite…everything else I love. Oh. And a job. Yeah. I’m moving sans job.

I think I’ve gone crazy.

Despite that thought, I’m also thinking that the change might do me good, that Denver will be the nice mix of urban and rural that a girl who comes from NH but who still loves the city is looking for.

I sound glib, but one of the big things that I’m going to miss, or yearn for, is the easy access to Korean entertainment. While I didn’t go to every concert that came here (nowadays there are just too many to choose from) I hate, hate, hate the idea of now having to pick and choose the ones I go — but even this wasn’t enough to deter me from the realization that I want to live my life another way.

Not to mention, I truly think that this move will be able to get me back on track here. I’ll have time to watch again, time to read and research, and time to post. As I explained to my boss, Kchat is very important to me, the progress I’ve made, the work I’ve done, and to see it slip away because of time? Hurts me right in the general area of my heart.

Of course, this just could all be my way of saying it’s about to get worse before it gets better. Me and Gussie, the geriatric cat you sometimes hear me yell at on the podcast leave next Friday and between work. packing and meeting up with friends for last fun times, I’m going to try and get my postings in, but I can’t promise anything. This should only last about a week or two as there is the fun fact that once I’m in Colorado, I’ll be hunting for a job (ie Jobless) so I should have enough time to make up for my dereliction of duties.

So. Don’t look for me in NY anymore, I won’t be here. But if you ever come to Denver, just let me know!


I’m gonna need to remake friends.

    very cool. Denver and all of CO is so diverse now both in the environment and the people (healthy mixture of liberals and conservatives and everything in between). Good luck.
