Found out today that last period has been bumped up to end at 3:50 rather than 4:40 and I am pondering sneaking out at 4:00...and when I say sneak, I mean strolling out, all casual like...lol. Would you do it? It was bumped up because the students have to clean the school and classrooms for suneung.

I kinda love the new red tab up top that says "I am Lost"  :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

Next to it should be a bigger red button that reads Who The Hell Are These People?

The contents within take on to an article entitled The Cencus of Waygook: How to know your CO2s from your Mr.DeMartinos -- And Everyone In Between!

But Dr. DeMartino is my sock account.

Mindblowing fact: Not only is DeMartino the sock account of CO2, but CO2 is in fact, the sock account of DeMartino.

The local 7/11 has started putting sweetcorn in those hotdogs.  :sad:

Kakao taxi app has been ruined by that new update. Firstly; it won't work without privacy settings turned on (which i never do to save battery and for privacy) and secondly they've made it so the language defaults to the phone operating language which on my phone is English but I prefer to use Korean cos it's more accurate than shitty English.

Just a nut. 

So I think this cake is meant for sharing but I'm totally eating it all by myself.   :evil:

Single size portion for 'muricans but def sharing size for Koreans  :angel:

I have definitely fallen victim to the misunderstanding of, "Oh... this is for sharing? It's hardly a single portion... at least... where I'm... from-- *hangs head in shame and weeps*"

Koreans will even share a single slice of cake among several!!  Madness. 

I am happier with smaller cans of soda poison beverages though.  I can actually finish one in a single go.   :laugh:

Nice! I'm quite happy with the cheaper cigarette prices. I can now slowly kill myself at much less the gut punch to my wallet :D

I like the small cans too. They ensure a super fresh rum and coke every single time. Either buy the little cans, or drink faster. I think I will buy the bigger ones for this afternoon. That last class was annoying.

There's a 6th grade girl at one of my school, who aside from being exceptional at English and really sweet and friendly, is a freak of an athlete. She's only just above average height and slim, but that girls already got some guns and legs that look like they can sprint up a mountain.

Today I taught comparatives and let the students do an arm wrestling contest, she managed to beat the strongest boy (he's just under 180cm and solidly built for his age), he didn't let her win either. I'm pretty strong myself and she challenged me. I
beat her quite easily, but it's definitely the most effort I've had to exert when beating a student.
On athletics day, I've also seen her destroy the other students (boys and girls) over the 400m relay. I give high fives to my students after class and they love it when I raise my hand really high so they can attempt to jump and hit it... This girl can actually touch the damn ceiling with her jump!

I'm going to be sure to remember this girl's name. I have a hunch I'll see her representing Korea in the olympics one day.

Our principal (nicest lady you could ever meet) just sent a bunch of us a message in Korean. Translated......

"Please stop making anonymous personnel who try to act as principal."

 :laugh: What the hell is going on? Is she being usurped or is this legit identity theft? hahahaha

Yeah, but it isn't the same as ice cream cakes from back home. When they say ice cream cake here, they mean ice cream in the shape of a cake (so no actual cake). Back home, there was ice cream actually inside of a cake. Just to let you know before you think you're in for a treat.

Speaking of ice cream has anyone tried the treats at the recently opened Dairy Queen in Taehagno?  Never really went to the back home, but if it's any good I'll head up.

Usually. To be fair, there's a pleasant amount of cakey crumbs dusted all over the ice cream "cake" I like to get.

I need a change. A big change, but not too big .... I don't want to move home, but I need to move, maybe to Busan, or Goeje, somewhere with a beach. But I am also lazy and don't feel like the whole, re-apply to EPIK to transfer provinces and potentially not get through the process and end up unemployed,  plus I am not sure they have a huge number of couple positions and I think I will be given my renewal papers by the end of the week so decisions must be made and right now I just really am hungry so thinking is hard. For a fleeting moment I thought about changing from public to the dreaded hagwon, but I let that idea go. Shit hours. Not enough paid vacay.

And now I want ice cream cake from back home ......
