Love?? All you need is meat and soju

Just met my ex and his friends for 항정살

너무 잼있었어!! Proof that good relationships can continue to blossom and flourish even after all the feelings have died :)

Samsara all day

This is a scene from the 2011 film Samsara which I would really highly recommend to everyone. It’s beautiful but a bit disturbing so be prepared. Truly one of my favorite films ever~

Interview of the Year?

So I had an interview today all the way in Suwon! I’ve always said if the conditions of the job are good I’ll take whatever location is dished out~ 

One of the interviewers spoke up “I’m thirsty. Got any alcohol?”

So the other interviewer goes to the fridge and pulls out this giant pitcher (more like boiling flask) of plum wine.

And then suddenly it’s no longer interview time.

It’s me eating crackers and watching two ahjussis getting drunk and talking about the good old days time.

I’d work there.

Moving to Beijing to make money to get plastic surgery


Yay more good news!

I successfully changed my visa a second time!

I was literally just waiting on this visa change before I can exit / enter the country.

Now that I have it I think I should visit my family / friends in the U.S.

Signing on with another academy or with another company involves not being able to choose my vacations at will or choose how many days I vaycay. With this visa I can visit the U.S. for a few weeks at a time that is convenient for me, come back, start a new job without having to worry about visiting since been there / done that. :)

My visa will be in-tact even if I leave, so it was really important that it processed. I’m really glad this all worked out. ^^ Although this trip to the U.S. will certainly cause a lot of money to fall into the drain… 

But I guess it’s necessary. I might not be able to visit again for… well, a long time probably.


My boyfriend works at pagoda. He likes it a lot because he's really outgoing and personable. He worked with kids for a year before that but much prefers adults. However, his schedule during the week is work in the morning, nap in the afternoon, and go back to work at night. He doesn't get much free time, and the time that he does is mostly spent sleeping because he's pretty tired. However, he always says that he likes working there.

Interesting!! Yeah, I’m hearing that the work is pretty satisfying. So that kind of draws me to the position. But… I have a lot of personal goals and projects that require time outside of work. If I’m too tired to work on them that would make me feel very depressed maybe. :(


which branch of pagoda?

Sinchon! It’s really nice~ The school looks chill and comfy. It’s next to one of my favorite cafes in Seoul and lots of wonderful things (you know Sinchon area - always a good place).


I got hired by Pagoda. Teaching adults is much more appealing to me than teaching elementary or kindy, mostly cause adults have an actual interest / motivation / personal goal in sight for learning English.

Now, I’m a little wary about this position… 

Cause it’s a split-shift. 7-11 am / 5:30 - 9:30 pm

I’m not crazy about that. I value having time to work on projects and essentially have a life. This schedule seems to deter from all of that. Plus two Saturdays are required a month.

It’s a very good location though and I could get a loft for myself with this position.

But I’d really like to hear from others first.

I’m not a big fan of quitting contracts so… Before I even sign, I’d love to hear from someone with split-shift or Pagoda experience. :)
