Students : Shocked and talking about my hair (Had a hair disaster. Hair is now weird silver purple and greeny gold orange?)
Co teacher: They are talking about your hair.
Me: Haha yeah I know.
Me to students: It's not finished yet haha.
Co teacher: They don't understand.
I'm sure there's a silver lining to your story!  :wink:

But yeah, hair disasters are great!
I remember wayyyy back in highschool, I tried dying my hair black using one of those "It washes out in two weeks!" deals. Dumped the stuff into my hair. Woohoo. Waited the requisite amount of time because I'm not a tard and know how to follow instructions clearly written on the box. Rinsed it out. Alright. Mission accomplished.
... so why the **** is my hair grey?
       Walked around like a geriatric for like a month. It's ok, no problemo, I have thick skin. I screwed things up regularly enough back then that this particular mess-up was just par for the course.

    Fast forward a year or so. Just graduated! Woot! Time to look for a solid summer job so I can not-starve during my first semester away from home at uni! Oh, and wouldn't it be great if I could dye my hair black properly?
...
...
... showed up to the interview the next day with bright blue hair because the black coloration leached out while the highlights did not. Awesome.  >:(

This sounds like a 'how-I-ended-up-in-Korea' story ^_^

I knew a guy my first year here who was completely grey from the age of 17, but he wore it well~

Mines like that, so I wanted the rest dyed to match my natural colour.

Korean hairdressers can be hit or miss I guess, I don't blame the guy toooooo much because he's apparently the best and my hair was a disaster to begin with.

Maybe you just lack confidence?

Or maybe I'm just a beauty-standard denialist...

*You’re* Amy Schumer in that you lack confidence in your hair to pull it off, *I’M* Amy Schumer in that I put the onus on you to pull the hair off without acknowledging impossible beauty standards foisted upon you by the likes of guys named Dave. Chinguetti is always just a little (too) schumy :lipsrsealed:

I can't be Amy Schumer, as I have no idea who she is. 

Thoughtless missed opportunity for a Mariah Carey meme.

You got a point, but I suspect that might be true of a lot of, if not most, names. :police:

****, dude.

I was trying to get something shipped to my school but Gmarket didn't like the address format, so I had to ship it to my apartment.

It got there while I was still in class but I ran home ASAP to get it.

Get to the door, it's gone.

Nobody will answer their phone so I can't get hold of my landlord to ask if she knows where it is.

On the plus side, by not having it shipped to your zoo school, you avoided the inevitable situation of your co-teacher opening the package and having the students urinate all over half the contents while stealing the rest for herself.

She gave me the info and called the landlord and tbh if she can find this box I will take back literally everything I've said about her, and also give someone my left foot.

Our Coupang guy (I assume itís one guy) puts our packages on the step right in front of our gate literally every time, requiring that we knock the packages off the stairs in order to open the gate in order to retrieve the packages.

Same?

Also, just got a message from the guy I ordered my air purifier from that, despite already forking over 15k for delivery at point of purchase from Auction, I will need to pay the delivery guy extra because the weight is more than 1kg. He didnít even specify how much more it would be. Feel like I should cancel the sale even though itís probably still cheaper than the next lowest price just to take righteous stand.

I ****** hate the nearby high school boys. They're lazy, useless, gross pieces of shit.

The ****** bus driver had to yell at them for one to give up his seat to a 90+ year old lady who was having a hard time even standing up straight let alone keeping her balance in the aisle. Why the ****** hell does anyone need to shame them into doing something like that? AND THEY ALL STILL ****** HESITATED UNTIL I MADE EYE CONTACT WITH ONE OF THEM AND BASICALLY ENDED THAT STANDOFF

****** hell. How can they all be so selfish and lack so much empathy for other people? I don't ****** care if they've got exams now, cramming during a test on the bus ride to school isn't going to help you pass, but giving up your seat to an old woman will make you a decent human being.

And I keep hearing these same guys complaining about not having girlfriends or being unable to keep one. Meanwhile, they treat people who don't benefit them in some way like shit and they try to rub their shoulders against my breasts or their crotches against my shoulder (if I'm sitting). GOD

Navigating sidewalks filled with people who don't know how to walk in a straight line or watch where they're going is awkward enough when they don't have umbrellas doubling the amount of space they take up. It needs to stop raining.

Ew. Gross.

And it's only going to get worse as they get older and become adults out in the world.

Pretty much.

What's worse is that at the beginning of each semester there are always a group of these type of boys who wait near my school gate around when they KNOW I'll be leaving for the day because they get it in their heads that if they tell me they're virgins that I'll leap at the chance to pop their cherries for them. And they don't grow out of this. I could be chatting with a guy in his mid to late 20s about thermodynamics, and he'll randomly state in the middle of all that that he's a virgin (normally a lie, but it's somehow common belief here among certain types of young men that this is a surefire way of getting women into bed). Like, thanks for stating that, but what does that have anything to do with traveling to Japan or what's currently going on in Daegu? *eyeroll*

These are the same kind of guys who go on to think that it's their looks that get in between them and girls. It couldn't POSSIBLY be because they're disrespectful, entitled, gross assholes. I just can't even some days.

Wait - what? High school kids are literally hitting on you that flagrantly? That's messed up. Like - extremely messed up. I'm not sure what other men's experiences were like when they were in high school, but I would've been too intimidated to pull that kind of thing with girls a few years older, nevertheless a grown ass teacher.

Do they creep this hard on other women that you've noticed, or is it just you?

It's just me that I've seen so far, and I'm pretty sure it's because they buy into the stereotype that foreign women are all sex-crazed and will sleep with anyone who compliments and expresses interest in them. And the fact that their school is located so close to my school is like an open opportunity for them, especially since they know I leave before my students do so they have a chance to speak privately with me (it's still safe, though, it's by a busy road).

It doesn't happen all year round, but it's literally at the beginning of every semester that a group of boys (never less than five) will slink around my school hoping for a chance to chat me up. If I don't manage to avoid them, and if I don't somehow manage to shut down their attempts before then, it inevitably leads into them telling me that they're virgins and that I'm very pretty. I haven't told my school about it because it only happens once or twice every semester, and it's always different boys, but I'm thinking that maybe I should. Sometimes I get discouraged about saying anything about this sort of thing, though, because people here are so quick to tell me that I'm probably only misunderstanding the situation. And also because I don't want to stress my coTs out over something that I've managed to handle on my own so far. xD
