We were playing a game in teams, where each team had a mixed up sentence on strips of paper to rearrange into a correct sentence. First 3 teams to finish got points, so the pressure was really on. However, it's really hard to keep track of which team raises their hand first, so...things get a bit silly.
For instance, in the third round, team 4 was convinced, and I mean CONVINCED that they had been the second team to finish. As I'm scanning the crowd, consulting with my coteacher, I suddenly hear the piercing cry of a middle school student in the wild.
"언니!! Unnie! Unnieeeeeee!"
There's all sorts of classes, but my favorites are the ones who share my dumb sense of humor, the ones I can laugh and joke with. A great example happened just recently, in my 2nd period 2nd grade class.
So I won’t be along here much longer, so I thought I’d give this a shot. There’s plenty about Korea that I’m going to miss, without a doubt, and then there’s a fair amount of things I won’t miss about Korea. It would be fair to say the same about anywhere, of course. So here […]
It reads like sodomy… right? It’s funny… right?! Alright, I’m immature, I get it… Oh well.
I don’t know if this is more funny to me if I imagine (1) an energy factory fueling the world with donuts or (2) vegetation that produces edible donuts. English is a hilarious language sometimes, isn’t it?
Look at you with your smiles and shitty nappies, you are the world too me. You may not realise it as you are undoubtedly focusing on something you just saw and must now touch, but it’s true, you mean so much to me.
I am writing to you today as I wish to part with some advice. As you are young it is hard for you to understand much, and as you are young it is your natural inclination to believe that you are 100% correct about everything. If the truth be told you will not learn the fallacy of this until you are, well probably close to your own deathbed many years from now.
I don’t have a good caption for this picture. Sorry. This shouldn’t make me laugh, but it does.
This is a short narrative post I initially set out to write for Groove Magazine‘s “Share Story, Win Trip” writing competition. The call came out for ‘funny’ travel stories where a lesson was learned. The winning pieces would be read out loud dramatically. Frankly, there just aren’t enough of these kind of encouraging writing opportunities in Korea. I could say more but I’ll get distracted.
I started writing mine and about two paragraphs from the end I decided that it wasn’t a travel story. So I stopped writing. I came back about a week later and took another crack at it, tidied it up but left it loosely over the 500 word limit, which kind of left it for any kind of flash litt and too short to be considered anything else. Still it’s a good story. You’ll laugh. I hope.
Dear North Korea,
Here are 10 reasons you should postpone your rocket launch.
10. It’s too cold outside to watch a rocket launch- It’s cold in Seoul this winter. I wouldn’t even go outside to meet a naked girl with chicken wings. It must be freezing for the under-clothed, starving, rural North Koreans. Not feeding them is sad enough, but providing them with an explosion they won’t enjoy or watch (too cold outside) is unusually cruel. You should wait until it gets warmer to launch the rocket.
9. South Korea blocked all the good porn sites- Actually, this is a good reason for you to launch a faulty rocket. If we can’t look at porn in South Korea, explosions from crappy rockets are the next best thing.
Today, in a grocery store, I finally put the pieces together and felt like a dummy for not seeing it earlier. Korea has a huge number of vampires and they have infiltrated the government to hide the fact. It’s so obvious!
Was this a documentary?
, I found the weirdest mode of transportation- at the same mall.
There's this cool below ground mall in Seomyeon set within the apartment complex called 'the Sharp'.
Last weekend, along with finding the

Just a little funny for this Wednesday morning.
Adam and I were researching how much food to give Eunee (we can’t really read the back of the Royal Canin Mini Starter Puppy Food, it’s in Korean)
upon finding it sold on a European site (On the actual Royal Canin site it has been edited to be PC and says mother), we read the details and both had a nice immature laugh.
Now almost daily one or more of them will get really close to my face look into my eyes really hard and proclaim that my eyes are cracking. It's becoming one of their new favorite things.
I will admit I don't help matters, and kind of egg them on by going on to tell the kids that my eyes crack a little more each day and that one day my eyes are going to fall right out. Then I move my contacts around in my eyes and really freak them out.
They're not that used to seeing hazel eyes and my eyes do have weird patterns in them, but it's just one of those great things that only a child's mind could think of.
I don't remember exactly when this started in class, but according to my kindergarten students, my eyes are "cracking".
because I am in a fight with my dear friend writer's block, and feel like I'm about this
good at hiding from it:
Because it is Monday, and I feel like this:
