If You Come Softly
Jeremiah and Ellie are both entering a private school in New York City. They meet one day accidentally in a hallway, when Ellie drops some of her books and Jeremiah helps her. In that moment they feel such a strong connection and keep thinking of the other long after. They feel as though they were destined to meet. After that day, they were all they could think about. There is only one dilemma: Ellie is White and Jewish, and Jeremiah is Black. They both felt uncertain about this feeling. As Jeremiah battled with his parents’ separation and his grandmother’s death, he felt the need to have someone understand him. Ellie felt the same thing ever since her mother abandoned her family twice. Ellie has issues with trusting her mother and always thinks she will leave. So, when the two finally started seeing each other on a regular basis, it appeared as if their union was sealed by fate. Only, the world did not see it that way. Jeremiah’s best friend supports them, but Ellie’s own sister, who also faced adversity because she is a lesbian, cannot understand why Ellie wants to be with Jeremiah. They also see the looks of people when they’re together. Despite all this, they fall in love. It isn’t a young puppy kind of love, but a real love where they can’t be without one another [sounds legit]. As they grew closer, they were determined to look past society’s disapproval. But, when Ellie decided to tell her parents, it was too late. Jeremiah was killed.
This is the best summary I ever could've read about a book I'm not going to read. It leaves me satisfied with no desire to ask any questions, not even about the racist lesbian sister. I got a 1-time gig judging an English debate and I received this. Frankly I think I'm going to walk away with a lot of material. I'd read it but the where they assert that their love is true love, not that "young puppy kind of love" tells me it's probably for high school kids. I'll wait for the college sequel, "If You Cum Loudly."

I've been trying to increase my audience so I submitted my review of Deokcheon to some other Korean websites for publication. City Awesome accepted me like a nice little whore with much enthusiasm. The reception I got from Korea Bridge was less vaginal. Check out this email the manager sent me-
After a quick skim of your blog, I thought, "Great, informative and entertaining posts - would love to republish them on Koreabridge". However, after reading through them a bit more carefully, I came across some sections that definitely cross the lines Koreabridge posting policies.
... I’d be up in McDonald’s spitting game at drunk bitches female dogs ... just a hop skip and a cumshot away. Boys and boys fuck here, too. Yesterday I even caught two jacked and well-hung Korean faggots checking me out like I was a Paul Smith blazer on a Bloomingdale’s sales rack.
Like any site or publication, we are ultimately judged by and held responsible for any content that appears on our site. That policy page is our best shot at clarifying the types of content we aim to publish and the types we try to avoid, but drawing that editorial line is still a subjective process. We're OK with adult themes and some degree of profanity, but tend to shy away from things like 'a cumshot away' and 'well-hung Korean faggots'. I understand this is appropriate for your writing style/tone, it's just not a fit for Koreabridge. For our standards, the former is excessive vulgarity and the latter is too easily perceived as hate speech.
we'd still love to republish much of your content, but are hesitant to set up automatic republishing. I have given you publisher permissions on KB, so if you'd like to manually republish posts you think are 'Koreabridge-friendly' you can do so by clicking 'create/post'.
Any questions, let me know.
Too easily perceived as hate speech? Whatever, Jew.
Other my life shit: I started a two month Saturday gig teaching 6th grade science classes with a bunch of MILFs. The extra money's cool but if there ever was a hell, it involves a one hour commute. The work's easy shit, but my standard for how much money I need to give up an hour of my time is unrealistically high now. This job will spoil you if you ever plan on getting back into the real world.
Stuff in the works- I'm making a page called What The Fuck Should I Eat which will tell you what the fuck you should eat. Since everything's a franchise in Korea, it's pretty easy to find good food, but it's hard to find great food. I also have a few essays I'm finishing up so stay tuned for that.
