Now Playing Tracks

Hello hello!

I need to do a proper update at some point ;~; my bad guys!

Anyway, I got a haircut yesterday that was inspired by Rihanna but I feel l look more like the girl from the Ring ( Japanese movie) hmmmm. It might look better after I get my hair touched up this Saturday. I’ll post up a picture :D

Also…. I signed up for another gym!!! Excited!!! I used to go to a gym somewhat near my apartment but the owner kept trying to give me advice , which would have been nice if I asked for it or liked to have human contact while exercising….but I don’t. Actually one of the things that bothered me was that I always caught him staring at me and when I would run on the treadmill he would hop on the empty one next to me just to ask me a really random ass question. I tried avoiding him every chance I got. So when my membership expired he immediately asked when I would come back from the U.S. And if I planned on coming back =~=

So now I enrolled at a gym half a block from my apartment :) can’t wait to lose the weight I gained in two weeks from eating heavenly food from America!

Let me just say


I started blogging about moving to Korea in 2012. I had just turned 23 and after three months of job hunting for ESL jobs, ended up on a plane to Seoul. Scoured online for any sort of inside information and disappointed to not see much information for WOC teaching abroad. So, I turned my vacant…

I’ve been following this blog before I even applied to EPIK to get an idea as to what I could be in for if I decided to teach and live in Korea. I feel like this was the best blog that prepared me for what was to come before I got to Korea! I’m not black but I feel we brown people share similar struggles here. We don’t come with the privilege of being naturally beautiful in people’s eyes here. From finding the right makeup to dating, the struggle is real.

I’m just glad there are bloggers that tell it how it is :D They’re also the most funny/ interesting ones out there :p 

And I’m off to Korea

So I’m getting ready to head off to JFK to catch my flight back to Shanghai and then off to Seoul TT__TT

Not gonna lie, this time it’s harder to say goodbye to the people I care about than it was last year :O

But this will be my second and final year in South Korea :3 I must make the most of it and begin to make my plans for what I want to do when I come back. I will also enjoy this year to the fullest :D

And I’m almost done packing :D

So I am taking a much needed vacation back to the U.S. for the next few days! I’ve been counting down since I learned when I would have to teach summer camp!!!!

Excitement :D

Anyway, I’ll be taking a much needed break from Korea (which is awesome) and it will help me prepare for year 2 in Korea :D I am so looking forward to family time and maybe just as important…..American food!!!

Oh boy >.>

So last week a friend invited me to an outing in itaewon. I’m not huge with itaewon for anything besides food so I was a tad apprehensive.

I actually met some pretty cool people and had a lot of fun but I certainly wouldn’t go alone to the bars or clubs there
Anyway, a friend of a friend was there and he showed me how to play darts. It was pretty fun since I’ve never played before. It seems a little strange to me that he was really friendly and actually held my hand to show me how to throw.

Well after we finished playing with our group we decided to dance. That dude kept dancing with me, or trying to anyway. He was actually starting to make me feel awkward. He got way too happy when he found out I broke up with my ex boyfriend ( he knew I had a boyfriend because the first time we met I had a keychain picture of us dangling from my phone….like a 13 year old). So he asked for my kakao id.
After a while he kept trying to dance with me and hold my hips, so I wiggled away and thank god this one guy I started talking to, a new friend mentioned in the previous post, messaged me. So I kept moving away from this dude to message my friend.

At around midnight my friend, the girl who invited me, and I left the bar to head home.( We actually live in the same building) This dude grabs my hand and tells me not to forget his face. I think I twitched. I told him ” how can I forget you? You’re *****’s friend! Haha!” He just stared and I left.

I had to tell my friend that her friend was odd. And asked if he was drunk. She said he probably liked me. Ughhhh.

I had to tell her that he was by no means my type. He’s short, stocky and I think he’s bald =~= ehhhh I’ll pass. I told her I could be friends but nothing else. Besides I am no where near ready to date :0

Anyway, if he asks me out on a date i’ll have to pass. He did already did but I think he didn’t take the hint of no >.> I need more funtimes with friends and hanging out, not awkward dates.

And so it begins

Summer camp starts tomorrow!
Fun! =~=
I also have to buy souvenirs and go to a doctors appointment. Not to mention pack for my visit home and to move when I come back 3 days later. Ughhhh

On the plus side, I did start kakaoing 2 really nice guys that are really cool! Mostly about language exchange but we talk a lot about life and stuff. One of them is my age and other is like 2 years older? I dunno but the second guy is super cute ;~; and both have pretty good English! I would definitely like to hang with them when I come back to Seoul! I think we can be great friends :D
