Just a reminder that these hilarious animations sum up how we've all felt at one point.

These honestly have me dying every time.
I'd never seen these before, but I'm thoroughly enjoying them.

^That video...  :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: I gotta watch more.

During volleyball, arseface got reprimanded by the others because he literally would run in front of me when the ball was headed toward me, bungling the shots.  Ha!  Serves him right. 

Rockfish dinner wasn't a total bust-- one table had a soup alternative that wasn't too bad.  And thank goodness for sides.  But it was kind of awkward because one of the new teachers was asking my coT questions about me and while I could tell they were talking about me, I couldn't tell what about.  I feel like it's so strange to talk about someone in front of his/her face even if it's harmless.   :lipsrsealed:

Later I gathered the tables were conversing about hair for some reason and the only thing my coT translated to me was that the new teacher had noticed I have some silver hairs. Okay??  :undecided: Like I'm well aware, I just think it's weird that a new teacher would point it out and that that was the only thing my coT bothered to translate.

Looking into taking a May trip with Wink, and it's a bike trip to the little Japanese island of Tsushima. Looking through the Wiki page and apparently Korea tries to claim that one too.

The Simpsons probably has this exact conversation in one of their episode scripts somewhere.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Korean_claim_to_Tsushima_Island

I went there some years back, and there are some camp grounds where you can rent a large tent for a cheap price (10 bucks-ish). Since it will be may, it should be open and probably pretty empty. Just down from the camp grounds is a sauna, and also a nice calm beach/inlet to take a dip. However, in the summer there are some massive bugs (but don't bite/sting, that I know of).

I'm wondering if I could do it for a whole lot cheaper than the Wink trip. I don't really have any camping gear, but I could likely borrow a sleeping bag from a friend.

I really want to save a good bit of money this year (she says...almost half way through the year and not having much saved by this point)

but I really don't want to be one of those people....

I need to find a balance where I am buying everything I want and need but still saving money. Hmmmmm.

I think the key it to decide where the want/need line is. Once you know where it is, you can choose to indulge your wants as a conscious choice.

Yes.  I don't ever need anything off Coupang but it's nice to indulge in some comfort foods every so often.  Usually it's also cheaper than hitting up a city on a weekend where I'm likely to drop more money on non-Korean restaurants and misc. entertainment.

I find reverse budgeting is the best way. I set a target of X amount that I need to save per month, and if I don't save that much, then I failed. That way, I don't have to feel guilty about what I'm spending money on, because as long as I meet my savings target at the end of the month, if I spent the rest of my money on fancy dinners and taxi rides, it doesn't matter.

Secret to saving money - track every tiny bit of money that you spend. I use an app called Toshl Finance that costs about $10 per year for the full version. It's saved me an insane amount of money over the years. I went from having no savings in my first year to consistently saving a large percentage of my income every year.

Nearly all the teachers have been gone since yesterday on a field trip so I was surprised to see one walk in just now.  I asked him in butchered Korean:

Me:  Oh, did you have a business trip yesterday?
Him:  Eh?  Business trip?
Me:  Yes.  Yesterday, business trip?
Him:  Oh.  Yeeees...
Me:  Aha okay. 

*pause* He then responds in English.

Him:  I drank a LOT!  Lots of alcohol!
Me:  BAHAHAHAHAH  :laugh: :laugh:

It is Friday.

Since I am the highest ranking official in this room, I herby decree...

That, in a show of understanding of special situations, if any unattached individual shall be approached tonight by another unattached individual of mutually agreeable gender, and asked for sex, that they be considerate of the other's lack of social skills, and do them anyway.

That is all.
