I wish I knew how to be sexy.

I was giving my sweet girlfriend kisses.  I told her, "I am Choi Tae-min.  Be my Park Geun-hye.  I have a special ceremony if you want to join my organization."  She laughed and told me that isn't sexy, it is funny.   :cry: :cry:

At least you made her laugh.

You know it!  8) I'm gonna miss this dude. He's transferring after the end of this year. All the kids love him too.

I'd say I wish he'd come to my school but I'm not staying here.

I told some new acquaintances the cliffs notes story of boss cot and they suddenly got all quiet and were like "wow...that's really sobering...I'm sorry you have to go through that" hahahah

she did give me a nice face mask the other day though (you know, to make yourself more beautiful. maybe it's because everyone sees me)

I'm considering going home for winter vacation, but I'm not sure if it's worth it. It would only be for two weeks, but I think of cuddling my cat (who is 19 and probably not going to be around much longer :cry:), and seeing my friends and family, and the thought of being able to bake is making my mouth water, but then I think of the cost...but I don't know what I would do if I stayed here. Hmm. I need to decide soon though before tickets get more expensive.

I used skyscanner and found a ticket back to the east coast for $830, not too bad. As long as you have a little flexability, use the prompts that allow you to compare the price of nearby dates. Good luck!

Also, always use incognito mode. They do charge more if they know you keep looking.

Anyone ever have to sit in on their own evaluation and then have none of it translated? Feeling stupid and crappy.

I think it's worth it, especially if you don't have alternative plans in mind. I'm visiting home in Feb, got round trip tix for around $850. Love my rabbit. Plus SO, family, friends. And food. Glorious food

If you're able, also consider leaving via different airport. I'm going through Busan this time instead of Incheon and it's a bit cheaper. Also just happened to have shorter flight times in my case. I also checked Gimpo

Lol, yes. Every time. It's lame.

Thanks for the reassurance, fellow sugar-hater.

Could you share the recipe that you used? There are a ton online, but I just don't want to waste all that cheese from something that is mediocre.

I'm drooling right now. I was planning on making it sometime this week and I am so looking forward to it.

I used this but halved everything since I didn't want a huge portion and didn't want to waste cheese if it didn't turn out well: http://allrecipes.com/recipe/238691/simple-macaroni-and-cheese/

I didn't have cheddar cheese but colby jack sufficed-- milder cheesy flavor. I might play with throwing in some pepper jack next time.

Also added garlic powder to taste. I am all about the garlic.  8)

Making mac and cheese is super easy. Making the sauce is basically just two steps.
Step 1: Make a roux
Step 2: Add shredded cheese and, optionally, milk until you're happy with the taste and consistency

If you don't have a cheese grater or access to pre-shredded cheese, just cut into strips as thin as possible so it will melt easily and evenly.

Of course, you should always use one hard cheese and one soft/semi-soft cheese for best flavor and consistency, but hard cheese plus extra milk is also fine.

Oooh I have garlic powder at home. I should do that, too. Where did you get the cheese? Last time, when I tried to make it, I could only find pizza cheese so it ended up being super stringy, which is fine, I guess, and it wasn't bad in terms of flavor, but maybe I didn't look hard enough.

I get blocks of cheese from Emart! And [cheese] graters can be super cheap. Def worth picking one up if you haven't got one already.  ;D
