After 24 years of living in Ohio I decided to up and move to Korea! I am a preschool teacher at PSA. I love working with the kids even though sometimes they drive me insane! They still bring so much happiness into my life.
My intentions are to use this blog to recount my many adventures in Korea and hopefully give my loved ones an insight into my life. But who knows where this might actually go... : )
Edit: I've been in Korea for officially a year... that ish is cray cray... lol
Most annoying things about Koreans? Plus can you show us a video of your life there? Plzzz :p
How they always just seem to sneeze directly onto your face.
And not say sorry.
Omg this one girl was coughing all over everything in the subway…
I thought I was going to throw up! How hard is it to cover your mouth when you’re coughing!? Nobody wants your nasty germs…
I have come to realize that the mind of a constant wanderer is different from the mind of the firmly grounded. Different things fulfil us and fill our dreams. We selfishly value experiences higher than people. We need solitude and independence at times, but companionship and love at others, switching from one to the other in a way that is cruel to those on the outside. Know that if you leave, you are forever changing your future. And when you return, some may still love you, but others will hate you for it.
The potential magnitude of the Sewol ferry disaster is almost too terrible to contemplate. Of the 475 people who boarded the vessel, 287 are still missing.

WHY DO THEY ALWAYS SLICE THEIR PALM TO GET BLOOD. do you know how many nerve endings are in your hand?!?! why don’t they ever cut the back of their arm or their leg or something omfg
me everytime a character in a movie has to get a few drops of their blood for some ritual bullshit (via jtoday)
WHILE WE’RE AT IT, why do people try to cross those skinny bridges over lava/chasms/whatever by walking upright. IT’S CALLED CENTER OF GRAVITY. get on your hands and knees and crawl across that thing. HUG IT. SCOOT YOUR BUTT ACROSS. “but i look stupid!” lalalala but we’ll avoid that ~dramatic moment~ where you almost fall over and die because your damn fucking self wanted to look COOL
and stop yanking IV lines out of your arms the minute you wake up in the hospital
That is a broadsword, why are you fencing with it
There is a freaking door right there. Stop smashing through windows, damn it.
yes, mr. action hero, I am aware that running dramatically from the baddies at breakneck speed is important, but know what else is important? NOT GETTING SHOT. RUN IN A FUCKING ZIGZAG PATTERN ON THE OFF CHANCE THAT THE MOOKS WERE NOT COACHED IN MARKSMANSHIP BY THE IMPERIAL STORMTROOPERS.
nO…NOOOO, stop! you can’t knock a door down like that, you’ll hurt your shoulde, come on! KICK IT HARD WITH THE FLAT OF YOUR FEET UNTIL THAT LOCK IS DESTROYED.
This past weekend I went to Seoul. I had a great time. Seoul is always a great time. I ate this amazing beer can chicken, literally the most delicious thing I’ve ate in a long time.
The bf and I walked across and along the Han River.. that was really nice. It was a little chilly in Seoul but over all the weather was great!
Today I had my lesson as usual and at the end of the mom asks me to stay for dinner. She prepared so much. Rice, bulgogi, a ridiculous amount of side dishes, soy bean soup.. I was stuffed and then she had home made ice cream and strawberries with lemon pound cake. I feel like I should have been rolled out… she was so kind and it was so nice of her to invite me to dinner. :)
I feel like I’m in such a tough spot… I really want to move to Seoul in August but part of me is like what’s 6 more months? I like my lessons and my children… gaaahhh if the bf heard me talking like this he would freak.. lol
