This week has been unexpectedly exhausting, but I’m pretty happy. After open class and a weekend busting at the seams with activities, I was hoping work would be low key this week. Nope. I had a million things thrown at me (test, two weeks of lesson plans, a monthly plan, reviews, meetings and even a field trip). 휴 I also double booked myself in the romance department. The guy I met at the...
How to Come Home →
lizziesroklife: “Home became sweet to me because it was so far away for so long. Distance gave me perspective. But I don’t have it down perfectly. I’m still learning to be where I am, whether that’s near or far, home or abroad.”

bluandorange: monetizeyourcat: dancepunksnotdead: You know, the one that gives housewives/full-time mothers a pension— wages for housework? It’s ONLY A HUGE VICTORY FOR FEMINISM, SOCIALISM, AND WOMEN OF COLOR. Not a big deal or anything. Tumblr is mysteriously silent about this. http://rabble.ca/columnists/2013/05/venezuelas-new-labour-law-best-mothers-day-gift holy shit! fucking COOL
The Scientific 7-Minute Workout →
samesamssaem: In 12 exercises deploying only body weight, a chair and a wall, it fulfills the latest mandates for high-intensity effort, which essentially combines a long run and a visit to the weight room into about seven minutes of steady discomfort — all of it based on science. …because my body is happier when it’s strong and healthy. Interesting…. Go on….

You’ll never watch the movie. Might as well DVD Bang it like the dirty pervs you know you are… Unless of course, you really dig the public aspect of it, you sly buggers. But what do I know….
sarahssaem: Go go! Or not. Your choice!
evethegreat replied to your post: Apartuh Gossip I met one of your coworkers on Thursday, but he didn’t know who you were and I don’t remember any information about him. Soooo….. With 24 foreign teachers waddling around it’s entirely possible that I’ve just seen this person around and never had a true conversation with them. *___*
Apparently my friend (and coworker and gym partner) and I have already established a reputation in our apartment complex for visiting each other’s apartments on week nights wearing PJ bottoms and carrying wine around, so the elevator adjummas told me tonight. This weekend I visited her to pick up a dress and I hear the familiar sound of a cow dying that I was never able to place. It turns...

Class: Teacher Youtube it NOW!
Me: :cowers in corner:
Sigur Ros in Seoul
I have two dude friends from Gwangju and Pohang sleeping over this weekend. Yesterday afternoon we wandered around the Bukchon Hanok Village and Insadong. We tried for Changdeok Palace, but it was closed. Last night, they requested a lullaby so I sang them a Beyonce song, naturally. Today they’re off to Bundang to bungee jump (!!!) then it’s back to Seoul for dinner and clubbing with some...
My job kicks ass.
After open class finished up my grade went out to eat at Todai (a western style sushi buffet). The food and company were quality. My grade consists of 4 foreign teachers and 4 Korean homeroom teachers. Our head Korean teacher’s kid (5th grade) always comes and he’s so silly and easy to talk to, just like his mother. Then, our other teacher’s son showed up after finishing at his hagwon. He happens...
Open Class tomorrow...
Means pamper time tonight.
John Green's tumblr: The Commencement Address →
g-nomey: fishingboatproceeds: Some people have asked to read the commencement address I delivered this morning to the 2013 graduates of Butler University. So here it is. My own commencement speaker, who shall remain nameless, began with a lame joke about how these speeches only come in two varieties: Short and bad. This… i hope my commencement address is this good. it’s worth the read,...
