Please don't explain American culture to me, Mr. Same Guy that Insulted My Parents. You said you've never been. You said you've only seen it on TV. Meanwhile I've lived there for all but one year of my life (this year in Korea), and I'm in contact with real Americans, not random Facebook scammers*, every day.

It's decided. This man needs to be a less frequent presence in my life. Time to grow distant slow enough that it's not immediately obvious that I don't like him.

*He keeps telling me about how the foreign women he talks to on Facebook all end up being scammers, idk.

If anyone had told me all the teachers would be introducing themselves to the parents today in a big assembly I obviously wouldn't have dressed like it's a regular dress-down Friday.

I didn't do laundry one day so I wore my Sinsa-dong tailored suit to school. It was a coincidence that it was "Take a professional photo of the teachers together and separately day."

My Co-T didn't tell me and then was surprised that I knew somehow.

It probably wasn't malicious, but that sounds so sneaky.

Sprint home and change.
By the time you get back, you'll look dapper and the pump from your sprint should still
be there ;D

I never get notified of picture-anything day, either, and they always seem to surprise me on days where I've been up for,like, 48 hours straight and didn't bother to put on any makeup.

This is why I now keep an emergency makeup kit in my desk.

Haha, last year I had to have shoulder surgery. In between my accident and the surgery, I was (understandably, I think) looking pretty rough around the edges. I could barely dress myself and tie shoes, much less put on makeup. Of course, that was when they scheduled the picture day.

When the pictures came back, they had photo-shopped it so much, I didn't even look like the same person.

I think the best they know how to do in my school is to turn you into a ghost. It's you if you were ethereally transparent.

Yikes, makes me wonder what I looked like in last year's pictures.  I never saw them :S

Haha, I think I may have preferred that. The worst was the elongating of my neck.

That moment you delete your entire mp3 collection while trying to rename all the unknown titles. 

#mp3tag -read the instructions before use. Otherwise pretty good.


FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUdge!!  :sad:

Luckily it wasn't too much, maybe 4 gbs. I'm half way to restoring it now and finding some new music to go along. Maybe it was a good thing.

Side note: Is there a secret when playing songs on shuffle to not hear all the same songs everytime?? Is it just me?

Happy Friday!

This is crazy:

Getting worse in 'Murica, too:

It's been getting worse all week here. I was going to walk around Hwaseong Fortress on Sunday, but if the smog doesn't clear then forget it.

My after school class starts on Monday and I haven't prepared anything, I'm not super organized so I'm more angry at myself for not thinking about it sooner.


Let's make name cards and play pass the ball for 2 hours ~~ Yay!

I've never had after school with 3-4th grades before so I really have no idea.

For those of you who know WaitButWhy http://waitbutwhy.com/2013/10/why-procrastinators-procrastinate.html I'm deep deep in that dark playground and the panic monster is yet to show up.

This guy did a TED Talk. I think TED Talks are usually dumb, and his was also kind of dumb, because there's literally only so much you can fit into a 5 minute talk on something, but he was a very engaging speaker, and his graphics of the panic monster and the monkey were fantastic.

Also, I am in a constant state of procrastination and the panic monster never sets in and I just never get anything done, ever.

Saw this in today's paper:
Quote

Most of Korea's electricity is generated from coal and other fossil fuels, and pressure is growing against consuming fossil fuels in the face of climate change.

https://www.koreatimes.co.kr/www/nation/2017/03/371_225852.html

Korea's receiving pressure from outside countries. Will this cause a change? I hope so.

I need a cookie when I get home.

Yes, it's a rather transforming experience.
