Spring time in Seoul – 20 months later

26 Mar

OMG. I have been in Seoul for 20 months how nutty is that?

I completely forgot about you blog, I suck I know. I started my masters in September and since then time management has been a pain. Not to mention the endoscopy in November. 2 months of soberdom. Also, the fact that I have a Korean boyfriend doesn’t help. It will technically be a year since we met at the end of April. WTF.

How is that possible? Anyways Koreans and especially conservative Koreans are soooooooo much different than western guys. They are emotional, sensitive, sweet, nice, thoughtful. Their is a negative side though, they are not as manly, funny, cool, witty, lack sarcasm (probably the language barrier) and overall not as fun. Some Korean men are crazy funny cool dont get me wrong. Just my boyfriend happens to be the sweet, sensitive type. I like it though, it calms me, grounds me and makes me more in touch with my emotional side which did not really exist before him.

My new job I started in August is going ok, I have an amazing Korean co-worker named Becca who I would die without. She helps me, understands me, and isn’t afraid to say no. She works her ass off. If it weren’t for her, I would hate my school. Everyone else is meh. They’re nice but the lack of interaction and language barrier doesn’t really help. ALSO, the new news with my school, uhm they got caught having an English program in the morning which technically they aren’t because they are a government-sponsored Korean kindergarten. UH-OH. bad news. especially for me I might have to change schools again! My last school which I also loved closed their doors which is why i moved in the first place.

UGH. Not the best March ever. March is terrible in the teaching English world. I hope if I move to the sister school, I will at least get to take Becca with me. I am not to fond of their teachers.

Besides that, work, health haahha uhm still working out. got a kettle bell, makes me work out at home when in reality I should be gyming it everyday.

School is chill, I have my flow and schedule going so it’s not bad. I read after work or at work, I do my assignments at home, not to shabby.

OHHHH I am saving for Europe in the fall. Excited but realizing I will go alone. Why are people so scared to travel, move abroad, explore, get out of their comfort zone. I still believe travelling for a week during christmas holiday is fun but it doesn’t compare to uprooting your life and moving to a brand new country. What are people so scared about? It’s amazing.

What else is new…

Oh I need a new digital camera so hopefully I can start posting some good pics on here.

I have made a few new friends recently too, thanks to Holly meeting Suhong on a hike. His wife Juli, so sweet. Vanessa, a crazy amazing canadian who I can talk to about anything and lives in the same area as me, score! I just hope we keep in contact.

I have met a few other people but I guess people aren’t on the same wavelength or am I too judgmental? Maybe a bit of both? I really need to stop but Korea is brainwashing me a bit, I mean they are extremely judgemental people! How you dress, how you look, your hair, clothes, your EYES. hahah ughhh ok I will try to stop.

I think that is it for now. I will try to remember you blog. 🙂
