I made 3.1 mill for years (on Jeju)  because of a base plus OT formula that saw me teaching 3pm to 8pm Monday to Friday and three hours Saturday morning (a hard noon out - stipulated). The money was the least important aspect of life on Jeju.

Don't chase money per se. I'm equally happy making a fraction of that on the mainland now. Unless you have a specific monetary goal to save up to, accept the job that suits you best! (I've been teaching here since '02 and have always been offered a 4th yearly contract (E-2  visa; didn't marry a local). I twice declined and twice accepted (on Jeju, yeah; didn't plan to in this farm town on the mainland, but COVID19 nixed my 2020 vacay trip to Malaysia, a change of locale to a position coastal and the spring 2020 "lay off" (no visa consequences thankfully) burning through my sayings. So be it. My academy plummeted, i teaching pre-pandemic just over 150 students and now... 47. So I have an E-2 paperworked-to-**** p/t job in Jinju with 25 more students.

Life's to live! Live! Breathe. Relax. Enjoy. Animals teach us to focus on family, friends and avoid danger. Get what you need and get along with others. That said, some rock the boat, but they know capsizin' it means they're sunk. Some sink, let's swim! The sea's big, great, but has undercurrents.


I don't think I would ever teach kindergarten kids in Gangnam...or Gangnam for that matter.  Too many coffeehouse mommies with nothing to do.   However, in a small town that would be happy to have someone come to their little school, even for a bit less, sure.

I took an extra math class (Probability & Stats), simply to be in a classroom with buds (not the woowork or metalwork crowd, and neither the home economics or independent study eager types).

The math works July 22nd to August 1st (22nd=1. 23rd=2, 24th=3,25th=4, 26th~5, 27th=6, 28th=7, 29th=8, 30th= 9, 31st=10,

Yes, your math works, but it's not what was advertised...being "10 consecutive workdays plus weekends". That would add up to 14 consecutive days, would it not?

Van isn't the sharpest integer in the equation.

Yes, i am fractional.

While I won the chess championship of my school, town, region and province, I have had my *** handed to me at the national finals and nowadays online. I was one of two (a male and a female every year, though they swear it's a coincidence) English Award winners in high school, a Dean's honors list my last two years of undergrad (about ten of us from hundreds) and a full-scholarship grad student (wherein my prof published a book, crediting me by name for changing his stance - the discipline is Philosophy, the topic: Argumentation - and i hate to argue! Lol). I have also won an award for headline writing (headline/lede, technically) when i ran a newspaper of David Black's in Western Canada (i didn't know the editor i worked for as a young reporter was Black's best friend from way back, so his recommendation of me helped a lot in getting the head editor gig. I loved it. But my high school sweetheart was in another province so after a year i bailed to marry her). You do what you have to do. **** happens. You adapt.

I'm not sure which context you are placing that question in.

I think it's referring to those 'Big Gulp' cups you can buy in 7-11 in the US, NutBuster. Popular with the obese.

I assume B.H. is an observer of the habits of the obese.
oo oo ahh ahh

OK...I really was not sure what to say to that.


I simply would not want to work in Gangam teaching kindergarten students, with so man mommies with nothing to do but hover over every little detail regarding their kids....or teaching in Gangnam at all. I've never met Van Islander but I can see his appeal for alternative locations.  I had an opportunity or tow, back in the day but I did not see the benefits then. 


It was a reference to Gangnam Style
