HARU HARU is a song by Korean hotties BIG BANG.. More spiky hair and eye makeup.. enough to make the hearts of little Korean boys green with envy and little girls swoon with the wonder of Boy Band? Boy band! I like Boy band!!!

haru haru means today today..or so translated my class. They can't get enough of it.. more addicting than the wondrous wonder girls.. they beg for them and actually behave the entire 45 minutes of class so the last fleeting 5 minutes can be saturated with big bang ness....

Tomorrow Tomorrow i will completew my rounds of tecahing Chuseok is like Thanksgiving. let's make a Turkey Lurky!!! It's been fun especially the part when the kids learn the Gobble Gobble sound.. I gobbled at lunch to this 1st grader and he nearly choke up his rice b/c he was laughing so hard. These and many more heart warming kindy moments brought to you by teacher who care!

I need to firm up plans on how to squander my 4 and a half days vaction without spending too much money.. Autobikes are ecpensive and though I love my PINKIE dearly.. she was a mint! So i'm considering having a sleep over, or going to a house party, or climbing a mountain and camping, or soliciting myself all over Seoul. It's like a choose your own adventure book all over again! God I love those things.

Tonight was spent singing karaoke and drinking soju. Some korean guys showed me and CLB some magic tricks.. later I swung by a drinking hole just in time to catch and share a part in the retlling of everyone's worst/best/mostawkward.most interesting/ sexually experience. For me in had to be that time I wanted to wear my letters... memories...

By the way: Happy Belated Bday K! I love You LANDON and ANITRA!! MWAH! Trifecta plus One lives on!!!

But not me... not anymore!

Today 2:34 pm

We all get called in to a meeting with our new supervisor of One week. I'm just thankful that she didn't turn out to be a fire breathing dragon! She is honestly a nice lady who is just as late as me every morning. She sits us all down and explains that our numbers of students are flailing.. obviously we aren't doing something wrong. The suggestions from the principal are to 1. Talk More 2. Be careful 3. Don't Use So Much Media and 4. Try to bond with the students.. so basically anything short of flipping tricks to keep the students a coming to the take you money palace.

My question is Do you really want English teachers or Side show ponies?? Nobody likes a teacher who actually teaches.. yes we learn but not it's not alwasy fun. On the flip side If we make classes a nonstop circus ( no offense mc mong) then how are we serving these children?? How is that helping their English skills?

The school principal has a crackerjack team with unbelievable skills in his back pocket .. how do i know? Becasue we've been operating with NO korean teachers and NO textbook and NO materials and still we've been beating out all the other schools and hagwons. Only 9 months later do we wane and only slightly... gimme a break.. this is for the birds... I wish the principal would take some of the cash spent on group dinners , soju and beer and buy us a box of textbooks.

Won Special Guy

Okay .... so my soju bomb went off a couple days ago... And he's the reason. I'm totally smitten for this guy and I think he could totally be me ..... I KNOW that he could complete get into me. The way i obsess over him and plan swooning to upon seeing him and worry about him and think about him is pissing even myself off. I know he's gotta be wondering why I'm so flip lately.

Ever heard the quote that the same thing that makes you laugh will make you cry?? Well those oh so sweet text messages that you NEVER dream of erasing b/c they bring you instantaneous bliss... y'know the ones... The also serve to remind me that this is yet another self induced mind fuck because we can't be together without problems..You know... the whole differences between culture and of course skin color comes into play when it never should. So he plays the we can just be friends card... I take the card at first but have been forever burning the edges. He's so perfect for me and I don't like the fact that i don't even get the chance, y'know.

Reality and many good friends say i should let go of my love luster for this guy and continue on to a more serious relationship with this American guy I've been hanging out with and talking to. He's a perfect package. He calls, he cares, he's fine ( mnn mnn yes he is), and he's military, he's funny and has a personality that entertains me and parallels my own - I should be throwing myself upon his combat boots!!

But I feel like I'm missing out either way, and I just don't like the feeling of not getting my way. Besides there are 4 other guys holding my slight attention besides these two main dishes. Don't get me wrong.. dating is sooooo much fun. I shouldn't be so sprung again so quickly cuz lawd knows that is NOT where i wanna be. I'm still paying my dues for the last 2 loves come and gone and now I'm banking on number 3! Today folks.. I'm punking myself! I am the only who chose to let go of loving and spend my life traveling and exploring.. sentiments would only slow me down. So yes I'm lamenting my decision now .. but i am resolved to do it my own way. But in a bittersweet epic poem's way of telling a tale: I love him but I can't be in Love with him.

Dentist's and Other Woes

So #2 Korean LOVE de mi vida set myself and friend up with dental appointments with a English speaking Dentist. What Luck! RIGHT?.....WRONG!!! After abbreviating our weekend we show up for the appt only to be thrown into a chair, slung back , and poked prodded and drilled to submission. Again I'm thinking: I"M JUST BEING PUNK'D! The whole messy bloody and painful scraping only process tok about 20 minutes and after that I was charged 70 bucks with a 10 dollar discount ..... so 60. See ya next year! I walked away dejected and a little more of my self and my virtue gone down the drain in a pulpy blur. How will I ever make it!?

Speaking frankly about what's been going on.. Everyone knows it's a small world.. well Korea is even smaller. So some people found my bloggie and I've been hesitant to write least I write anything that may or may not hurt some one's feeling, but it's all about me right? And of course I know all you anonymouses out there want the 411.. So here goes....

Even since I got here it's been a very relaxed atmosphere. I work, I clean, I doodle, etc.. But at night my restless spirit kicks ups.. The temptation to gain attention is too strong for me to resist. Luckily there are alot of foreigners in our small town who have form a good network that allows for partying for bdays going aways, incoming ppl, just visiting..etc.. Also you never have to look far for someone to drink with on every night of the week and twice on Saturday. There's been a few late night early morning trips to other cities in a raid for American food and other similar delights. All these kind of fun occurrences are the experiences you can't buy with money. You pay for them with time off your life I'm sure. I'm sure some of my soul is still shining down up to the sidewalk thru a korean sewer wondering why is this happening to me!?

But the friends made here have a delicate balance. Just like in high school there are the cool kids and then the not so much. There are people who refuse to participate "if you're going to invite so and so". There are the perpetually alcoholics, the people who always skip out on the bill, the people who are never there, the people who are always there, the aspiring alkeys myself included, the ex professional drug addicts, the group that talks about everyone behind there backs, and then there are the beautiful ones that are the glue that hold the crew together in it genuine and haphazard form. It's dysfunctional and perfect! I have to say that on some level I really like each and everyone of these people. I hope that we'd keep in touch after the sojourn here is completed.. but the reality of it is.. that we are dropped off here together and free to be our true self's( or what ever self you wanna be) for a year... maybe 2 and then it's back to your reality where none of us exists and none of this ever happened and you have no one to recall the memory with. It reminds me of military living .. I've had so many best friends that i've never spoken to again it's not even funny.But it's an ingrained part of the life of a military brat.
