Two of my classes were canceled today, which leaves me with the entire morning to do whatever.

I made a poster. That was enough to secure my sense of accomplishment for today.


More than I've done. I changed the file name on a PPT I made last year to make it look like I made it this year. And I put it in a different folder. That's all.

Sometimes you just need to be a lazy piece-of-shit, and there's nothing wrong with that. We all NEED those days.

I guessssssss.

I'm hungry. Hurry up, lunch. And don't be bad. 90% of the time my school lunches are rad, but yesterday was literally plain rice, udon noodles, potatoes, 해물탕 which was great, and plain kimchi. Seriously - y'all ain't need three carbs in one meal.

Ugggggggghhhhhhhhh

Coming home last night from Ansan, after a great Indonesian meal, and some Ajeossi is looking at my phone. Like, piss off.

 :afro: Ah, English.

 >:( Yup.

 :afro: Where you from?

 >:( Canada.

 :afro: Ah! I go to U of T for ESL.

 >:( Oh, that's cool. Really good school.

 :afro: What is favourite Korean food?

 >:( 순대국 or 돼지갈비.

 :afro: Ah, do you know kimchi? (I know this is a meme, but he actually asked me. MF, if I love sundaeguk and Dwayj ribs, you bet your ass I've 'heard of' kimchi, you nitwit)

 :afro: Do you know CN Tower? 

 >:( Yes. Do you know Namsan Tower?

 :afro: Of course, I know. I am Korean. Why ask if I know that? (The irony is TOTALLY LOST ON THIS GUY)

 >:( *sigh*

 :afro: I get off at Sanbon.

 >:( *sigh* Me too.

  :afro: Ah, give me phone number. We go out for...... you know maekju? and Kimbab? (I told him I've been here 4 years, Christ, yes. FFS)

 >:( Yeah, sounds great.

We get off at Sanbon and I tell him I have to use the washroom, in hopes that he'll say, "Oh, ok, Goodbye."

 :afro: Ok, I will wait here.

MF~~~~~~~~~~

I come out later.

 :afro: Urine? (pronounced like 유라인)

 >:( Look, why would you ask me that? (patience is low)

 :afro: Oh, sorry. Just you take long time so I think maybe not 유라인.

DON'T TAKE THE SOUTH EXIT, DON'T TAKE THE SOUTH EXIT................

 :afro: *takes north exit*

 >:( Ah, you're going that way? SEE YA.

lol, love your angry-face persona.

Life would be easier if we could walk around with emoticons over our heads to indicate what mood we're currently in.

This is condensed. He stood a foot and a half away from my face, too. Ugh, I don't mind small talk but stop asking me if I'll be your best friend. You're 55, no offense, but y'aint my type.

My friend is from Toronto, and he's married to a Korean that went to....... U of T, funny enough. He's been over here 10 YEARS. Same damn questions, every time. His wife butts in, after 2 mins EVERY TIME, and says in super formal Korean "This man is a lot younger than you, he cannot be your friend. Have a wonderful day." They always realise what they're doing, like an epiphany. And they go on their way. I need to learn this phrase from her. hahaha

I'm going to be super empathetic and suggest that maybe some of these old dudes are super lonely, and see a foreigner and think, damn, this guy maybe feels alone being away from his people. Maybe we can be friends.

This is reaching pretty hard. But, I mean, maybe. If you want to play some schmaltzy sad piano music and make a short little documentary about this phenomenon.

More than likely though, they're just tools.

Aaarrgggg. When some random newbie starts going on about how they understand Korean culture so much and how awful foreigners are. Newbies be acting like they have figured out in two weeks what every other foreigner has clearly failed to see over the course of lord knows how many years, telling me about everything the teachers talk about in the teachers room etc

Me: Oh, so do you speak Korean?
Newbie: No.  Not yet.
Me: So how do you know what they are saying....
Newbie: *crickets*

To be fair, I don't really talk much about sugar because it's poison and I don't eat it.

This is under the assumption that people actually know how to read beyond the obvious. Or that they're not up against someone with resting-bitch-face.

What would the future be like if we could only convey emotions through exaggerated facial expressions and all of the more subtle nuances didn't exist? I'd imagine baring your teeth in a scowl would probably be the only acceptable way of conveying anger or annoyance.
