what to do

“Like, what should we do this weekend?”

As an English teacher in South Korea, when Thursday rolls around each week I usually itch for my upcoming weekend plans. I have learned to take full advantage of my weekend time in Korea and I hope to continue with this new approach to my free time when I return home. I love the tired yet accomplished feeling of a Sunday night following a jam-packed weekend of experiencing new things and people in Korea. When I find myself without plans midweek, I use the following 5 resources to find inspiration for weekend outings. I hope you find them helpful and please feel free to comment with alternative ideas. I promise, armed with these resources you won’t find yourself uttering the annoying answer to a friend looking to have a memorable weekend, “I don’t know, what do you want to do?”


An open letter to ATEK's new president

Dear Mr. Dolezal,

Congratulations on winning the ATEK presidential election, as reported in the Korea Herald (HT to Rob York - you guys really should sign him up to write your press releases) While I'm sure the news will be surprising to some, I trust that the members of ATEK will accept you through the democratic process that has been followed.


Your challenges are many, and I'm sorry to say that there are almost as many critics as supporters. Your job will be tough, but quite a bit of work has already been done. Contacts have been made, some battles have been won, and there are many opportunities to improve things. The road towards better treatment for foreigners in Korea is long - this is mile number 2 of a very long marathon.
