The best time to tell me  my 11:35 class has been moved to 8:50?

8:55, apparently.

I really should be used to this sh!t by now.  :laugh:



 :cry:

Don't know if we'll ever get used to it  :laugh:

Whenever someone tells you something like this, ask 2 questions:

Who told you this?and When did they tell you?  If the answer to the second question is anything other than: A few minutes ago.  Ask a third question: Why are you only telling me now?

Apparently testing for the fire drill includes blaring k-pop over the office intercoms. Guess it's time to put my earbuds in and blast Pig Destroyer until my ears hurt or the k-pop stops, whichever comes first.

Dude my school actually makes me sad when I walk to class. It's so poorly taken care of. Floor tiles missing or loose on the stairs, chunks of plaster gone from the walls, dust and dirt everywhere, graffiti all over the place, filthy windows... It's just crappy looking and I don't understand why. How is it this badly managed? How does anyone have any morale left when you're tripping over ripped tiles going down 4 flights of stairs. How can the toilets be BLACK inside because they haven't been cleaned? How has the bathroom sink been backed up with scummy water for days at a time? How?? Why??

The longer I'm in the building the more it starts to depress me. As soon as I leave I feel immensely better. I'm just so embarrassed that it's acceptable for a big city school to be in this condition.

Well you can't very well blame Korea. There must be some explanation.

I know I have trouble finding a good fit of running shoe as I have narrow feet and apparently all (ALL!) Asians have wide feet, making it hard to find narrow sizes. I'm guessing your problem isn't that they're too roomy but rather to small.


I also have trouble with 'ankle' socks that constantly shimmy down to about mid-arch, but I think that might be a (repeated) case of mistaking my wive's (sp?) socks for my own.

Where are you shopping?  I have wide feet, and most of the shoes I try here are too narrow.

I have wide feet, so I look for "Made in Germany/UK/India" some Korean shoes are OK, but it is hit-and-miss.

This is what I was told at a running specialty shop in Seoul called Fleet Runner. Many shoe companies don't offer multiple widths and Nike tends to run a little narrow, which is the brand I ended up buying last. Maybe my feet are just especially narrow (despite having mostly German ancestry, re: JNM's comment).

I always thought we had wider feet than Asians rather than the other way around.  I know they friek out over my "big feet".  I am just average size.  Size 10  - 280 but even tall Koreans over 6 feet seem to have smaller feet than me.  I can still find shoes in my size, though I had found some shoes narrow.  New Balance seems to be ok though or at least the pair I bought locally.  Had some Nikes a few years back that seemed a bit tight. 

Maybe like clothing Asian size?  Not sure why Korea even has that as there's a lot of 6 footers and chubby Koreans nowadays.  Just wear the American, it'll fit them fine.

Just come to the horrible realization that i've got something planned for every night this week and the weekend.

Next week i'll probably be complaining that i'm lonely but still. It's my last year not my first, I shouldn't have to be this social.  :laugh:

Also side rant: I hate that there isn't any healthy convenience food in most supermarkets here. (If not most then the one closest to my house / convenience stores)

I'm trying to slim down and be healthier.

On weeks like this where i'm busy I just want to buy already made food for a good price that's good for me but it's just such a pain in the arse here. I don't want to cook anything, I love cooking, but sometimes I just get sick of it.
 

It's a lot to ask, probably impossible, but it's pissing me off so i'll complain about it.

See if there aren't any "taxi driver" restaurants nearby. There used to be one near my old home where everything on the menu was 3,000 won, including a (eggless, unfortunately) bibimbap.

Like I mentioned though, I rarely watch movies at the cinema, or at home, they lack everything that anime and games have :P

You've got that in common with me too, then, haha. I watch maaaaaaybe four or five movies a year, and most of them tend to be school-safe movies I'm previewing to make sure I can show them to my students on movie days. Any time I have some extra days off, though, I'm at home watching some random anime series all day or playing a Bethesda RPG until it's waaaaay later than I realized it was.  :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

Yeah, usually post exams, near the end of semesters, is when I watch the most movies haha.
Unless it is a movie made from a video game I like, then I will usually watch it. :p

You tried meal prepping?
Cook a batch of meat and veg, once a week, vacuum seal it and refrigerate.

Carbs are relatively quick to cook and usually the biggest culprit for fat gain.
Keep your carbs as clean as possible, order some wild rice off iHerb and you're good to go.

Don't waste your time with too much cardio, it MIGHT put you in a calorie deficit but you'll lose weight (water, muscle and fat) and won't really alter your BMR, so it's not that useful for long term results.
Lift weights... heavy ass weights, and do compound movements (squats, deadlifts etc.). They'll change your BMR, kill fat, rewire your neurological system, build muscle and even help with depression and anxiety, lifting quite literally transforms you.

I've thought about  it. I've done it before in terms of soups and stuff obviously but never "real" meal prep. I think it's a great idea and certainly would make my life easier. Then Sunday rolls around and i'm either busy or it's the second one of the month  :laugh: Maybe one day.

As for cardio...Honestly I don't and I won't haha. I play badminton a couple times a week and I ride my bike, that's enough for me. Yeah I maybe I should lift or do weight training. I know it'll be good for me, but it just doesn't appeal to me much.
