Here's hoping we find our happy endings~
I've heard Thailand is a good place for that.

I want to take some kids by the shoulders sometimes and just shake them and say

 >:( No one, NO ONE, wants to hear whatever the FUK noise that was that just came out of your mouth. NO ONE

 :rolleyes: BAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH BAH BAH (at full volume and full vibrato)

Seriously. And nothing gets done from any Korean teacher.

Can these f*cking cavemen knock on the door before entering?

I'm getting pretty tired of having a mini heart attack every time these teachers barge in (probably to take something out the classroom), and get a fright that an English teacher is in the English classroom.

Classic.

The fire extinguisher dude did that to me the other day. After cleaning up my soiled underpants I said 'Hello' and he just ignored me so I gave him the middle finger behind his back when he bent down to check the fire extinguisher. Quite enjoyed it.

5:50am wake up well before my alarm to the sound of someone hacking up phlegm and what i guess to be a few rotten bits of cancerous lung tissue in the street below.
stomachache from the chicken i shared with my coteacher last night. she's probably fine but i'm basically pissing out of my ass. bathroom is freezing and still wet from last night's shower.
finish and turn on the shower again, a mosquito appears out of no where and after a few fruitless attempts to kill it, it's disappears into nothingness. finish shower, get ready and go outside.
inhale the crisp winter air - the smell of all my neighbor's morning bowel movements hits me smack in the face and i'm not even near a sewer. it literally smells like the insides of their intestines or something.
walk a little bit farther and the scent of (probably lung-hacking man's) piss wafts up from a wet spot on the wall.
i bury my face into my scarf and look down at the ground littered in "massage" business cards and oh look - an open and dirty brown pantyliner.
reach the corner to find a bunch of young guys huddled around smoking. not a breath of fresh air yet.
make it to the main road, an old man is peeing on the grass in full view of everyone. isn't he cold??
get to work, stomach still hurts. use the freezing bathroom again - not a single faucet has hot water. hands are frozen but at least clean.
sit down, mosquito bites on my neck and stomach start to itch. the office wont let us turn our heat on over 20.

i am so tired of this place i am counting down the days! i swear i will never take my previous lifestyle back home for granted ever again.

Where do you work?  :huh:

We also don't have hot water, makes washing your hands properly quite painful. And the heating is locked at 18 degrees. The hallways are like walk-in fridges.

We have dinner tonight, and I would really rather not awkwardly sit on the floor eating mediocre Korean food (can't we ever have something different?) for three hours listening to people fake laugh, but here we go.

i'm starting to get super pissed off about the lack of RAM in the computers here. no wonder they're so slow and grind to a halt anytime you try and do just about anything.

when my computer is idle, with nothing open, the RAM usage sits around 60%

it's insane. and that usage is probably all these stupid plug-ins and korean security programs you have to install, that can't be uninstalled.

Why don't you just download some more RAM?

Yea I teach at a poor school, we have no hot water and our heater is locked at 25, which doesn't help that much when it's -10 outside.
But the admin office so warm, meanwhile we're freezing our asses off everywhere else in the school. We're also not allowed to have individual heaters either, but I got one anyways and just gonna use it during desk warming since I'm alone.

On Tuesday, the principal let us leave early at 2:30 because it was really cold but my coteachers were really suspicious about it. This (new) principal is from Gangnam has been causing a lot problems, so no one really likes her lol. Anyways, according to my coteachers, later they found out that she had all the teachers leave school early because she had a better heater installed in her office and didn't want everyone to see/know.

It's the kind of situation where an American friend invites their more normal Korean friend and that Korean friend brings their socially ignorant friend just so they can experience hanging out with foreigners in Korea. It was kind of a big group, so I don't know why I got stuck talking to this guy for the majority of the time. This seems to happen a lot, maybe because I'm quiet and thus look open to conversation.


I seem to have that same "approachable" appearance or something.  Oftentimes if I'm at a public transit spot, and NOT even the only one there, somehow some [often elderly] Korean will decide I'm the chosen one they should ask questions about whatever.  Usually I don't know the answer so I can at least tell them politely in Korean that I don't know but then I notice they don't even bother asking anyone else at the stop.  :undecided: 

If only they knew I was actually a foreigner in unintentional disguise  :laugh:

Trying to get peace and quite in a jimjilbang is pretty much impossible. I had to get out of my house due to troubles with my wife. I went to a jimjilbang because it was cheap and i like the hot rooms they have. I have never heard such loud snoring and loud behavior in general where people are surposed to be sleeping. Also, who proceeds to set their alarm for 6am in the sleeping room and then sleep thorough it for at least 2 or 3 minutes. That happened at least twice. If you go, then take earplugs or earphones amd play music to block out everyone else or dont go on a weekend or get a hotel. Other than that it was quite enjoyable.

Korea and Japan played football the other day, Korea won.  The match is being shown now.  This is the 5th time i have noticed it being shown.  If Korea had lost, it would never again be shown.
