Its been raining in Seoul. Instead of the humid, steamy sort of rain that makes the garbage reek, its been a cool, fall-scented rain. I’m still sporting summer clothes and this is the first time I’ve felt “cold.”
Anonymous asked: how about a couple selca for the followers?
YES :) I will post it when I talk about what we did for 100 days
100 days was reached~
This sad mess. Really I don’t even know why I’m sharing this. Do I popcorn this sad mess and watch it? Or do I shudder, ignore it and live playfully in my happy bubble where these assdicks (for the most part) don’t exist? Actually, guys in Gangnam are not normally like this at all. Maybe I can popcorn it.
LOL. The singing was so bad and so off-key on this live studio recording promotion for Caffe Bene that they skipped to another song.
Anonymous asked: any advice for someone from Europe who wants to live in seoul? like is it even possible to get a job there? ( I also never went to uni so I don't have a degree in anything making things even harder then they already are )
It would be really, really hard. Does your country offer a working holiday visa? That would be the only option I can think of, that or coming here as a student. The advantage you’d have being a student is access to internships and job fairs. To get a job, really, you do need a degree for most visas. That is their requirement. But if not, you should speak Korean fluently.
Had a Korean study session with the boyfriend today~ He’s kind of a Burger King fan and he’s been raving about this quatro cheese whopper they got going on. We must have either come at the none-of-the-employees-give-a-shit time of day or the worst Burger King in Seoul, cause everything about the food was just 100% crap. He, who’s tasted every quatro cheese burger he can get his mouth on, didn’t finish his burger. It was really sad. =(
Also took part in the #happyseoul project~ It’s the Seoul version of Pharrell Williams’s “Happy” and it looks sick so far! And went rummaging around 명동 and 가로수길 for neat finds. Found some ❤ with kaylakangaboo's help of course!
On Thursday I mentioned I went to a symposium on assisted living care technology? Saturday was kind of a continuation of that, only this time we had hands-on experience with what it’s like to be old. We were told to wear these clouded, yellow glasses. They simulate cataracts vision. Another pair simulates glaucoma vision. While wearing those we had to guide ourselves using canes. We also tried out brain exercises for people with dementia.
Another point was seeing all the technology made to help seniors. The spoons and forks, some of them have sponge handles for easy gripping or are angled to help with arthritis. Other practical things too like self-rinsing shampoo and remote-controlled furniture.
After all this we went to Heyri Art Village where we tried pottery making. Ohh, this…. dang it’s so much harder than it looks! I couldn’t get the clay to stay steady. I guess they knew~ ㅋㅋ Cup decorating was much easier. ♡
At the time I thought the senior experience was bizarre, but now I’m kind of in that chin-stroking mode of thinking “Good call.” It’s not as if I had any idea about all this before. Learning new things ought to be my everyday goal~
The ceramic cup I decorated today in 헤이리 문화예술마을~ Simple. But it’s what I’m feeling these days. 어때요?
