Pecan, I hope that if you have the grand fortune of coming across my effeminate self -- with my eyeliner, jewelry and tattoos -- that such does not make you uncomfortable.

Perhaps it's a sort of nouveau masculinity? Just look at these KPOP boy bands!
Please don't misunderstand and conflate.  I don't have any hatred or the like.  It is simply an "instinctual aversion", if you will (like how certain things make your skin crawl).

Just look at this, for example:


If that doesn't make you cringe in discomfort, I don't know what to tell you...

I never thought I'd say this but....I agree with Pecan. WTF is that video?! They'll be protesting outside of Seoul city hall about that it's that cringe worthy.
Can I refill your eggnog for you? Get you something to eat? Drive you out to the middle of nowhere and leave you for dead?

If its any consolation, the douche in your avatar is of a similar level of cringe worthiness.

I am really enjoying how much an insignificant avatar bothers people.

Becuase we are on the subject of cringey things and Kpop seems to have a special talent for being so embarrassing I have to change the channel when it comes on. The lady/guy in your av exudes that certain something and it makes me want to claw my eyes out. That you can identify it in the video while at the same time having something equally as embarrassing tied to each of your posts points to a blind spot on your part.

I said I was enjoying how much it annoys people. I put that avatar up years ago, to have one, I would have changed it years ago, but I didn't really care one or the other. But now that it annoys people, it's staying.  :wink:

This thread (and Pecan?) seem to have become very entertaining as of late. 

Looks like I'm studying Korean at a university next month :D

What University, and are you doing so while still teaching?

Man, I really want to just study Korean. May have to become a student again. My school squeezes all the work they can out of me, so while I do study a good bit of Korean each week (after school, that is), I'm often too tired to feel as though I've studied a worthwhile amount. :(

PNU!  Nah, taking a good [forever?] break from teaching.  I've been wanting to go back to school for something for awhile, and studying a language seems fun.  I'm also not tied down to anything at the moment so carpe diem!

Yeah, at my last job I was kept fairly busy and honestly didn't have the energy/motivation to study afterward.

OK well compared to this cringemageddon, I might as well be Clint Eastwood. I couldn't make it through more than a few moments.

I may have to follow suit. My main motivation for coming over here was to learn Korean, but unfortunately I got the polar opposite of anything resembling an easy job here, and with Korean being as difficult and dense as it is, my current progress isn't where I'd like it to be.

PNU huh... hmmm I may have to look into that. Congrats on the temporary [permanent?] break from teaching!

Pretty grave omission there. Seems almost intentional.
Perhaps your co-worker was attempting to gauge your romantic interest in the science teacher by seeing how you would react to news of her untimely death.

Sitting at my desk thinking about my winter vacation and basically just googling random countries in Asia, hoping that I feel the urge to go to one of them.  Honestly can't be bothered though.

I know that travelling is good but the thing is, sometimes it feels like I'm doing it because everyone else does.  If you don't like travelling then what kind of monster are you???!!

I got a bit excited about Singapore but that quickly faded  :laugh:

So, C02, what is the name of the restaurant man? Maybe I can check it out if I ever got the chance...

On another note, students were freaking at the first sign of snow a bit ago. It snowed for a good 30 seconds  :laugh:

Yeah, my first year I was all gungho about traveling and traveled SO MUCH but now I just kinda feel meh about it.  Maybe just need some time w/o travel to feel the travel bug again.  Or maybe I'm just getting old  :laugh:

Still haven't been to Europe at all yet though, so that's on the list for the future!

I can relate.

I have little interest in traveling somewhere new during my vacation.  I simply want to get to my destination, so I can start my vacation and maximize my R&R.

Granted, I have traveled 25+ countries, so I don't feel as jazzed about exploring (been there, done that, sort of thing).

There are some countries my wife and I would still like to visit, but not just for a few days, but for like months, which isn't possible at the moment.
