Different Days and a Halloween Heart
After locking up my bike downstairs I came up to my classroom, filled my mug with some hot coffee from the pot, sat down and started going through the class schedule. I gotta say, life now sure is different than it was a year ago.
Not a bad thing at all. Change is good when you’re unhappy. Any kind of change; it’s better than staying still. Consistency is good when you got what you need.
I came to work early, found some time and I figured I’d post a little something for all you people hungry for excerpts from my life (sarcasm). Life is great these days. Simple. Got money for food, got a bike (just two days ago) for transportation. Jacob and I found an awesome bar and made friends with the people working there. Maru, Eric, and Mari! Can’t forget YaeEun, the blanket girl! (I realize this means nothing to you guys, but if you come up to Nowon sometime, you’ll see). I don’t have plans for Halloween yet but I’m starting to get into the Halloween spirit. I was thinking about it this week and what I really like about Halloween is that it, more than any other holiday (yes even a little more than Christmas), brings back the feeling of being a kid again. All the Halloween specials on TV, the Halloween music. Even some things that aren’t even related to the holiday like staying up late and playing video games. [Had to step out for a meeting] So I just got back from a quick morning meeting and totally lost my train of thought. Damn. Well, until next time, cheers.
[I have an iPhone4 on it’s way so when it arrives you could expect many more updates in the form of short video clips and photos. Perhaps (definitely) I’ll show you my students and how awesome they are. Back to work!]
Good morning party people,
Charlie and I want to get breakfast at hash house a go go, where they’ll serve you a bloody mary with a fuckin strip of bacon in it. Also, pancakes the size of your mom.
If anyone wants to join us, meet in the casino at 9:30. My number is bla-bla-blah
An email from back in January during CES 2010 (thanks for bringing this back to attention Annie!)
I think I need to find a way to go again next year.
I love that this heat is finally getting a bit tired of beating down on us. Take that heat, ya jerk! It’s been cooling down here in Seoul and I love it. There has also been a ton of clouds, overcast almost every time I look outside. But, I love the overcast, I love what it does for photography, I love what it does for my mood, it’s all good stuff. It’s NOT “gloomy”, it’s just calm. More on this later, I gotta get to work.
Sounds sad but I get pretty lonely around here. This area is really great and all, I just wish I knew some neighbors. People I could go for a drink with after work. Or just hang out on the rooftop some nights. Maybe go for a walk in the nearby mountains. Someone to explore the local restaurants with.
Been wanting to go to this PC 방 right next to my apartment for a while. For a number of reasons including photo editing because my netbook is a piece of junk, browsing gmarket because my netbook is a piece of junk, and playing some video games because my netbook is a piece of junk, but for some reason I’m afraid to. I’m not sure how they run exactly, it seems like the kind of place where the majority of customers are “regulars”. Do I pay first? Do I get some kind of time card? Do I need to make some kind of account? My Korean is pretty basic so I’m scared to get into situations where they use vocabulary I have never heard, like technical talk. Bleh… I should suck it up and just go one of these days.
[Btw, I posted a tidbit on my facebook but I fell in love with a girl at my local Lotteria! I will make this into a story, whether anything happens or not (probably not).]
I was really bored tonight so I spent the past 3 hours making a floor plan of my apartment. I borrowed a tape measure from my boss on Friday and tonight I went around my whole apartment measuring every wall and cabinet to make my floor plan to scale.
So, here’s what my apartment looks like right now:
And here’s what I’m hoping it’ll look like in a month or so once I get some furniture:
Things to acquire:
- TV stand
So revealing ey? Now you all know what it looks like in my apartment, weird.
This weekend I’m finally going to buy some furniture to fill this empty apartment.
I’ve been plotting out my room on some graph paper (I like doing this stuff), and I’m wondering whether I should go with a full size bed or get a single and save space…
(I have a lot of fun organizing my living space, I think maybe I’ll draft these up into an excel sheet and post ‘em later, maybe.)
So now I’m curious about ya’ll, for all of my Korea friends, do you guys have a single or a full?
