Internet Vocabulary – Clicktivism

 

    One term we think is important to know is Clicktivism. It is a noun which means the act of making political statements through sending out massages using a social network such as Facebook, Twitter, etc in order to organise and promote political or social causes and movements. Clicktivism is a portmanteau of words click and activism. Its popularisation is associated with US editor Micah White. He explained that Clicktivism in the newspaper in 2010. It is a significant new word because now in the digital age it easy to voice one’s support for a cause or raise awareness and to change thinking about a particular issue by the click of a button. Several examples of Clicktivisms you might know are the “Ice Bucket Campaign”, “Facilitating Boycotts”, and “ Google Bombing.”

Three Things I Can’t Live Without

   One of the thing that I can’t live without is my credit card that from Kakao. I ordered my credit card when I finished my Korean CSAT test and when I just turned twenty years old. I always have it because my Mom gave it to me, and I was annoyed by every single message that deliver to my Mom when I bought something, so I ordered my  own card. The card was free to order, but it took about a week to get it. I was so happy when I got this credit card not just only because of its color and design, also many discount benefits and events that make me feel like a economical person. It is my favourite color, pink, and there is a Kakao character which named Apeach. It is important to me, not just for my survival, but also because this is my first credit card that ordered by me and I’m the only person who can see the bills. I feel it is the symbol of my independence. I always keep my card in my phone case for convenient use. I hope not to lose my card and use it economically.

My Classmate, Jeong Eui-jae

    This week I interviewed Jeong Eui-jae, and I found him to be diligent and kind. He is very tall and has a relaxed tone of voice. He is twenty three years old. His hometown is GangDongGu, Seoul, and he thinks Seoul is the most liveable place in the country, because he get used to its environment. He graduated from Paichai High School. He told me that he is very interested in math, and he thinks learning math can be used in many different kinds of fields such as coding, calculating, and analysing data. So he is now majoring in Math at Korea University in Sejong Campus, but he will move into Korea University in Anam next semester. He told me he wants to work in nano technology in the future. He likes to weight train and eat bulgogi. He usually exercises, studies his major subject, mentors students, and volunteers to clean at Welfare institutions. He thinks friendship and personal life are the most important thing in his life. Through this interview, I think he is a person that have a detailed plan for his future, and work hard for the higher goal. It was a great time interviewing with him!

I love my hometown, Daejeon

     My hometown is Daejeon, not just because I was born there, but because I think it is the nicest place to live and I have the most memory in there. Daejeon located in the center of South Korea, and it is the fifth-largest city in South Korea. There is only a single subway line like in Gwangju. I love the clean, simple transportation systems and the many wonderful places that concentrated in downtown. Sung Sim Dang is a famous bakery in Daejeon, fried Streusel is the most popular item. Sung Sim Dang was also listed in the Michelin Korea for the first time. Italy-Guksi is known as the famous fusion Italy and Korean food restaurant in Daejeon. It opened by Woosong University by the culinary majors. Sky road is the most popular place in Daejeon. There are LED light streets above, lots of trendy fashion shops, and restaurants. Now, I go back to my hometown once a week, because my university is so close, I stay there about three days a week. I usually hang out with my friends and spend time with my family going out to some popular restaurant. I love Daejeon more than any other city!
