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
So the day finally came when I had to meet the bf’s mom….and she was really nice and sweet! lol! His sister was asking lots of questions about marriage and such… I was having a mini panic attack during dinner…but overall I think/hope it went well lol
Last night I made zucchini bread and then today I made a chicken noodle stew/soup thing… It’s super delicious! I thoroughly impressed myself with my amazing abilities of just throwing random things together and turning it into amazingness!
Friday is my parents’ night at school my kids are already doing fairly well for being korean age 5…aka to every sane country in the world 4 year olds…
Today was a day where I was just kinda fed up with everything… case of the mondays I suppose…
I’m going to Thailand in December for 6 days! I’m super excited! Now I just need to get my passport renewed asap!
You’re born with a ton of fucks to give, so you spend them like a kid with a credit card. You give fucks about your friends, about your grades, about your fashion sense, about strangers’ opinions. You give way too many fucks about way too many things. You have so many. Then, as you get older, you have maybe 10 fucks per month, so you learn to budget them. You allocate fucks to family and career, but there aren’t enough fucks to give to the newest fads. Oh, someone at work has something they need my help with that’s outside my job title? I’ll do my best to allocate some fucks, but this month is pretty tight. Then, as you get even older, you’re down to 1-2 fucks per month, and those fucks are pretty damn precious. You give them to your family and your hobbies and your job, and that’s kinda it. It’s not your fault – fucks expire too quickly. I would’ve liked to save my fucks from when I was younger but I can’t. Then, you hit fuck insolvency. You’re getting like 1 fuck a year, and you have to make it last. So you go without, and even previously fuck-worthy things, you just can’t give a fuck. Some people run out really quickly, Some people have a fuck trust fund that pays out a decent amount even into old age. But at some point, the fuck faucet runs completely dry and you’re out of fucks to give. It’s just basic Fuckonomics.
Destroy the idea that men should respect women because we are their daughters, mothers, and sisters. Reinforce the idea that men should respect women because we are people.
So let me just start this post by saying the universe is probably conspiring against me today! First my own finger nail sliced me by the part of my eye that gets dark circles…idk what that’s called… then the bf and I were on the scooter and some a-hole decides to do a illegal u-turn and we almost get in an accident. Third my lasagna noodles stuck together in a giant ugly mess that I had to just throw away..forth because this list just needs to keep going…I burned my finger on my oven… I’m done..I’m just done today…
So the bf and I went to the “international” festival in Itaewon I’m using quotations because this was not an “international” festival…there were 20 korean food stands. Don’t get me wrong I love Korean and prefer to eat that but it’s an INTERNATIONAL festival! And then there were like 4 kebab stands! You’re telling me Kebabs are the food of 4 different countries including the USA!? I call b.s on that one… Needless to say I was very disappointed the bf and I walked around once and then we left…
Then we went to this giant fish market. It was pretty awesome! Even though I don’t eat fish it was cool to see all the different kinds. I’ll post pics later because they are on the bf’s phone and his MIA at the moment.
Then I came home and made lasagna as noted previously the noodles and I didn’t work out well..but I had more so I slow boiled them…My lasagna came out amazing! Ricotta cheese and freshly shredded mozzarella.. magnific
Well that’s all for now…later gators
