Relationship issues. Ugh. Is there something in the air?
Hmm, maybe thats it. I seem to be having a few as well. Maybe it has to do with all the cherry blossoms falling...
Cherry Blossoms...isn't it that time of year where Cherry Blossom Ending gets airplay again in Korea?

I think I see what's going on. That song is just...ugh

Anyway, whatever is happening, it seems to have come all the way here in China because I've definitely had some problems lately ^^
Is that a song? I should look it up, haha.

Just dust and heavy metals  :sad:

Making matters worse, Seoul said there was not much that could be done about the problem, and claimed that about 80 per cent of the capital’s pollution was external in origin – mostly from China.

The South Korean government has laid the lion’s share of blame on Beijing for years, ignoring the fact that coal and liquified natural gas (LNG) consumption have both skyrocketed over the past decade, according to the South Korean Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy.

From 2005 to 2014, South Korea’s gas-fired power plants increased their output from 58,000 to 111,700 gigawatt hours, while coal-fired powered plants also increased from 134,900 to 203,800 gigawatt hours.

The government has even blamed cooking habits and automobiles for the pollution, despite the fact that coal power plants have been proven to be the country’s biggest polluters. A government report, released in May 2016, even went as far as to say the leading cause of indoor air pollution was “frying mackerel”.

South Korea now has 53 coal power plants, the Financial Times reported last month. From 2005 to 2015, capacity rose from 17 to about 26 million kilowatts, then last year it spiked to 35 million kilowatts.

“The government is sitting idly by while passing the buck to China,” the Financial Times article quoted Kim Shin-do, a professor of environmental engineering at the University of Seoul, as saying.

Well, that may not be so far off. Cooking is a huge cause of indoor pollution.

This weather is very gloomy and creates an atmosphere of impending doom.

I bought a bunch of fresh cheese and was going to use it tonight for dinner, but now the weather is making me just want a big pot of hot ramen.

At least the rain is washing the air pollution out of the sky.

Ramen is terrible for health. I'd avoid completely if I were you.

Are you basedcowboy in disguise? Lol

You could also try putting cheese in your ramen.  Personally I think it's weird but I've known some 'muricans who fly like that.

I usually do and only partake a few times a year, but now my craving has stuck. Or indian curry...

Edit @yirj: I actually like the cheese too, but I bought fresh mozzarella and hickory smoked cheese, so that won't quite work.

I've got some shit going on back home so everything is exacerbated by that BUT:

Review time is the worst. I usually do a game the whole period and, of course, little more than half bother to listen/participate. And if whiteboards are involved it's constant TEACHER TEACHER TEACHER and some kids act personally slighted because I don't have 8 eyes.

The screaming. My god, the screaming.

The mocking. For the most part, this doesn't bother me because I can tell they're trying to model the way I say something and/or find it innocuously funny. But sometimes it feels straight up rude.

The old codger who thinks it's totes cool to pop headphones in and snore loudly after lunch as if he's not sharing an office with 15 other people.

I'm not even trying to put on a face today. If I hear "You don't look so good" or something in that vein I may scream.

Ooo yeah that'd be a weird medley of flavors.  Still, maybe you could have melted cheese in some fashion.  Could be nice, given this blargh weather.

Chili??? I have no idea actually.  That kind of cheese just makes me think of crackers and summer sausage

Add syrup with that cheese in your ramen, might balance out the medley.

That's how my brother does it. To this day I still don't know what gave him the idea to begin with, but he's been pretty loyal to it since forever.

Yes, that would be it. I've been trying to get him to change it up with something like honey or whatever, but he says that that "would never work." ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

They sell cheese ramen at some of the 분식 places too, it's not an American thing and actually pretty normal. You can also buy cheese ramen at the store...
