Getting my haircut :D

As you may have noticed from my picture, I got a haircut :D

A few weeks ago, I went to Juno Hair in Mokdong and asked to get a haircut. At the time, I realized I needed to get my hair re-straightened because it was growing in wavy and frizzy at the roots,

I gave the girl my iPad which happened to have a picture of Rihanna ( I look nothing like her but I love her hair <3)

I literally asked ” can you make me look like this :D?” She gave me a reassuring smile and said “yes!”

needless to say, I did not look like that lol She straightened my hair and cut it. I came out looking more like this

I figured it would look better after I completely straightened my hair with chemicals….and it has gotten better :D

I definitely don’t look like Rihanna but I am loving these bangs and haircut <3 I’m still getting used to them haha 

late night thoughts

So as I was walking around Myeongdong and shopping like crazy (because I clearly need more crap in my apartment) I was thinking ” Should I start dating again? Am I ready?”

There is a half of me that feels that dating wouldn’t be too bad. I mean, just hanging out and talking to someone would be kind of cool again ( y’know, as far as boys). I would really like to get to know other guys.

But then, there is the other half of me that doesn’t think I’m ready. Luckily I have gotten to the stage where I am definitely not missing contact with my ex and I’m fine with knowing nothing about him…at all! I still do think about  him and I tend to get angry or think about the good times. So I’m not sure I want to push it yet with dating.

I have talked to other guys ( AS FRIENDS!!!) and I get really into it because I want to know more about them, but I’m not sure if it would be the same with dating. This is a noodle scratcher right there.

I guess I’ll wait and see. I have tons of work coming up with my taking afternoon Korean classes at Sogang ( ;~;), work, and then gym time with my trainer xD Not to mention I will soon be traveling to Dokdo and then maybe clubbing sometime in the near future ( I haven’t gone since like May ;__;) Hongdae anyone?

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
