Purchased a filtered shower head last week and the difference in my hair was immediate and dramatic. Hair is almost as soft as it was before I came to Korea (so I guess their was little damage to my hair but a crap-ton of build-up from whatever's in the water). Wish I hadn't waited so long to do this.

Office neighbor KT's phone just went off -- the ringtone is some death metal song. xD

This teacher is a very typical-looking Korean woman in her late 40s. She teaches science.

You can send some of that my way. I accept online transfers.
It would be my pleasure!  :smiley:
For the sake of expediency, I'll need your account number, passport number, SIN, all your passwords, mother's maiden name, and a copy of your finger prints.

Last week was my birthday and I told my students they could come to my office to give me gifts, as an obvious joke. Today, one grade 5 student (probs my favourite, she really puts the effort in to try and speak English) gave me a small notebook that she wrote "Happy Birthday Teacher, so sorry" on the front.

I don't know what the "so sorry" part is about but it was a nice little surprise.

I scored a date with a super catch of a guy in a couple weeks. Something came up and he has to go to a friends wedding but has invited me to go along with... is that serious? We've only met once before... nevertheless I am super pumped about it. Wish me luck~
I feel like being asked to go to a wedding can be seen as serious, but here, who knows. Either way, congrats and good luck! ^^

It's not necessarily serious. It's one of those events where you're usually expected to show up with a date here.

Actually I was told, by two different ladies, for two different reasons, it's not generally custom to take a date to a wedding in Korea.  Much more the norm in the west though.  Hell, one was my wife, and she told me that, seeing as I don't know the people getting married that it's not necessary or expected for me to do to the wedding, and that it's very normal for her family members to go to a wedding without their spouse.  I was also told by a girl I dated ages ago, and confirmed after that by another, that you don't take your casual gf/bf to wedding as it is often seen as 'this relationship is serious, and maybe it will be us getting married next wink wink'. 

Hopefully I was being led down the garden path as the casual girlfriend was one who told me and it sounds like a great excuse for her to not go to the wedding I asked her to.  That last part is the 'happy' of this comment, as I am happy she didn't go and later married.  Quite happy indeed.

What brand did you buy? I have been using a lot of conditioner, so my hair is still ok, but I'd like to get the extra boost of not crappy water too.

I don't remember, I'll have to look when I get back home, but I purchased a cheap one available in Emart -- they have two available in the Emarts in my area right now, and I got the one with the beads visible in its shaft.

I plan to order a nicer one from gmarket at some point, but the cheap one has already done wonders for me.

My afterschool class started today (despite the fact that I won't see them again for another three weeks because Korea) and although I was pretty spent from the day, I had them do a write-a-sentence-in-the-shape-of-whatever-your-sentence-is-about drawing activity and they just peacefully scribbled and it was quite nice, actually.

Ohhh, I forgot about that activity! We did that at my first elementary school here, and we have club starting Thursday.

Read this without reading the above comment. Sounded like a dildo. Class.

Even "I'm a little teapot" can sound dirty when it's out of context. xD


The brand of the shower head I purchased from Emart is Sokari.

Just enjoying the cool weather :) At least until it warms up again in the next couple of days but at least fall (or is it winter lol) isn't far off now.

Was in the hallway with my elem. coT when one of our students runs up to me to say hello and sneakily puts a piece of candy in my hand.  :laugh:

And on the bright side, since there are a lot less classes this semester due to tests and field trips, my main coT decided I don't have to make speaking tests anymore! One less thing to worry about!

One of my 6th grade students from my (semi-disastrous) first year came to school and gave me a coffee and talked about middle-school. I wrote off the first year due to troublesome colleagues and various culture-clashes so it was nice to have a student from that time seek me out. Sidenote: he starts HS next year... How long have I been here?! Am I going to see my elementary school graduates out drinking?  :huh:

I'm happy that after several pages of it, the whinge thread has finally moved away from people's anal probing experiences!  :lipsrsealed:

Grade 3.  They may just give me hope that this teaching gig is not as horrible and hopeless and it's begun to feel.  I like grade 3. Why can't kids just stay like that? They made me happy today just by being themselves.

Found out that I don't have to teach Korean teachers English after school. One less thing to stress about.

We were deciding which 5th grade class to use for our open class, and I wanted a certain class that can be a little rambunctious, but they're very enthusiastic and volunteer to answer questions. My coteacher wanted a class that is well-behaved, and while they're "good" they're too quiet and never volunteer. I pushed for the class I wanted but she ignored me and chose the class she wanted. Over the last week she's been stressing out a lot over the open class because this class just doesnít like to talk at all. She finally realized she chose poorly and she switched to the class Iíve been wanting for the last month. Hooray!

TLDR: My co realized the error of her ways and I got what I wanted.
