JRN 112 blog #2 - When my dad Googled me

Yeah, he Googled me - typed 'Brian Han' in the search engine and found some pretty embarassing videos of me dancing in my room and at a mall.

He called me from his home in Texas and asked, "Why are you dancing?"
Not even a 'hello' or 'how are you doing' and it was awkward.

So I said, "Uhhh...what?"
"I typed your name on the internet and now I'm watching you dance in your room and..."
"On youtube?"
"Went to google first and...why are you dancing in your room?"
"Why are you using my name in search engin.."
"You should be studying, Brian."

Yadda yadda yadda.

You get the gist of it.
I should've known sooner or later my dad would use technology against me someday. But Google? Es tu Google? I shouldn't tag myself in anything ever again. My dad will find it and question it and we'll have more pointless conversations like the one above.
(Refer to the youtube vids found here)

I don't know if there's any point to this blog.
If I had to think of a purpose off the top of my head, it would have to be that Google is bringing fathers and sons together in ways that render that father confused and his son in a state of awkwardness and shame.

It will dig up all the dirt it can find on a name because it can.
Thank God those youtube videos are the only things that my Dad has found out about so far.
