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

Moving On…

I found out Friday that on Monday I will be able to move to Seoul. I’m super excited and it’s a great thing that I already had started packing. I’ve spent the past 2 days cleaning out cabinets and scrubbing my apartment from top to bottom. Most foreigners that leave their apartments don’t necessarily clean them well. My apartment was fairly clean but the girl didn’t even empty out the refrigerator before she left…smh. I’m practicing that whole “Do onto others as you would have them do onto you.” thing… 

Anyways I’m excited to move to Seoul. I’m moving to Yongsan which is close to Itaewon and HBC. My apartment has a large kitchen and 2 rooms! I’m super excited! Even if the rooms are small I don’t care because the kitchen is immensely larger than mine and I will finally be able to cook things. 

The girl who is moving into my apartment is coming by tomorrow to drop off some of her larger things which is also why I have been scrubbing and making the place look presentable. I’m supposed to meet my old co teacher sometime tomorrow. I hope everything works out and I can see her. I miss her so much.

So hopefully my next update will come from my new apartment in Seoul! 

See you later Bu!

My lovely twins that I have taught for 2 years gave me this card and bracelet. They have matching bracelets. I cried after I read the card. #teacher #gift #sweet #thoughtful #korea

These past 2 weeks I have ate out every night…this ish is getting expensive and I just quit all my lessons… Moving is stressing me out… I need to relax and not worry about bratty kids…

I also found out that I can not eat seaweed anymore… I’m ridiculously sad about this… It is definitely one of my favorite foods… apparently seaweed has lots of iodine in it and I have a thyroid problem and the seaweed actually acts like an antithyroid agent… hence why off and on for the past year I have been having violent stomach pain… at least now I know why.

I wanted to move to Seoul next weekend but I doubt that will happen… probably August 1st…

We had a crazy storm today… my elementary students came in completely soaked by the rain…

Also had parent teacher conferences today my moms were really nice and supportive. They wished me well and told me thank you for teaching their children this far… One mom cried because her daughter is really sad I’m leaving… I would take her with me if I could. 

So this was really random… and yeah that’s it…

So confused… I think I was trying to ask if it was dubbed. Dubbed English movies are the worst.
