Now everything will be on the new blog:


DN in Korea –


Moving update!

I will be posting on my blogger account on Blogspot.

That is where I originally wanted to post things and then I forgot.

I will make post there instead in a few days. The Money Diaries and everything else will be there.

Here is the new link. Please update your bookmarks.

DN in Korea

Long time no see…

Sorry. I have been busy.  I thought about updating but by the time I am able to I don’t have the energy.  I will give you a quick update of what has been happening.  Some can go into their own separate posts. If you want more information, just say so.

  • Met up with LBFAM#1 and LBFAM#2.  Been three years.  Picture up later.
  • Meeting a slew of cuties and nice guys. One is in marketing, the other a freelancer in urban development here in Korea (Korean American), another works in the wedding hall, and the latest one is an international trader in petroleum (tentative date when we are both available). We have exchanged numbers and ID’s to chat.
  • Unexpectedly, I have been asked out of the blue (twice by the cuties upon our first meeting another by a coworker because I was learning Korean and I like it here) if I would think about settling down here.
  • Lost 30 lbs.
  • Guy at convenience store asked me out, many times in fact.  Even asked if I had a boyfriend.  I am reluctant because of the language barrier and he may be learning more English because he can see that, because our last short conversation he asked me this without any Korean and no hesitation. Or getting more confident in speaking.
  • Taking Intensive Korean courses on Saturday.
  • Taking KPOP dance class but going back to belly dance. (DAMN IT SHINNEE!)
  • Got renewed at my school, so no moving this year. 3 bedroom apt… No, I technically don’t pay for it.
  • Finished a 30 day straight Hot Yoga Challenge.
  • My radar for Sexy, may be coming back.  Been wanting to go to this one place for awhile but it is kinda far.  Turns out he was there. I will go another day anyway, because I want to explore.

I officially graduated Ashford.  I now have a Masters of Arts in Education with the specialization of English Language Learners. Now to work on my Korean.

Yes, that last statement can be taken in multiple ways.



What kind of guy I want…

I want a guy who can get me going just by seeing him. 

He also has to fit the other criteria of being  nice, intelligent,  dorky, taller than me, respectful, have a job (preferably one he enjoys);there are a few more but those are the main ones.

Final Class

I finished my last class in my Masters of Education Online.  Almost passed out right after I turned in the final.  paid for a hotel for a few hours just to nap.  I needed it.  Now the stress will completely go away after I find out if I keep the A I have in the class right now.  That would mean I graduate and I am FREE! Which would equal more time for me to walk around and explore Korea again and meet new people.  That means more posts. Also, I can concentrate fully on my learning Korean. Give me 3 months. Soon, I will be able to meet the guy I have been crushing on for the longest time here. I am awesome and so is he and we two awesome people need to meet.

Decisions…. I have decided

I have decided.

I am going to make him drool when he sees me.

So Krav Maga and Cage Fit it is to lose that last stubborn bit.

Plus I developed a thing for Maxi dresses and long skirts.

Too hot to wear pants.

…It’s locked and tired coworkers

Came into work today.  The first door was locked.  Easy enough, I can just untwist the… key I guess (it’s a strange lock) and it slides on open.  Go to the next door, my office.  The door is closed.  I go to open it and …. it’s locked.

This door is never locked.

I clearly remember before I left for the weekend that the door was open and NOT locked.

My go to the office to see if they have a key.  They are surprised it is locked. I swear I got this look — O.o;;;

The office lady comes with a bunch of keys and NONE of them are for that lock.  These are keys to the school.

My co-teacher arrives says Hi and probably vaguely wondering why I was sitting at the students’ desk eating my breakfast.

Tries the door as I tell her it is locked.

Her: O.o;;; What?!

Her and the office lady have a conversation in Korean. Which I can vaguely understand, but I figured out a bit.

There is a key to that door.


It is inside the office. OUR office.  The one behind the locked door and the backdoor is locked too but it wouldn’t do any good. It is blocked off and their is no door in the opening. It is just a wall of blue with a door frame.

Well, we had a class in a few minutes, so we went to the other class and luckily those keys were in the main office. I wen up just as the maintenance man was lie “F*** it!”  and was proceeding to bust it open with a hammer and a book. 

Strangeness of the day…

Everyone was tired.  Teachers I mean and the principal.

We just got in and we are all about to fall asleep.  Actually, I may of nodded of a time  or two while standing and saying the ABC’s with the students along with the song and when I was sitting down doing the same in a different class. I know I zoned out during the game and zoned in in time for me to say the answer for them to repeat together as a class. 

I had to drink two packs of instant coffee in my Bi coffee mug to function in the last class before lunch.

Curious note…

I wanna know what is in that room where the locked backdoor is.  It is just a wall of blue in mu office with a door frame but in the classroom there is the door that is locked.

May not want to be doing that on my own after watching Cabin in the Woods with Tempie.

Yeosu Expo and New Set up

Went to the Expo with April (Pink Fashion Ninja) and Temperance (yokotempie). Where we stayed was cheap, very nice and clean, the owner was sweet and it was literally right near everything we needed.

Saw and heard KCM sing. (NICE!)

Next heard some group called the Nine Muses.  Not sure why when there was only eight on the picture and seven were at the EXPO. I don’t remember much about them except that they were wearing yeast-infection inducing jumpsuit things with no pant legs. I could tell that from where I was.

Then there was Park Hyo Shin.  Whom the Narrative has named “Mr. Panty Dropper”.  That name is well deserved.  He can blow and had the gall to make it look easy. Yeah, I may be going to his concerts too along with Rain.

… Rain comes first though.

Then here came Rain.  I got as close to the stage as possible and he saw me and waved back. 

He sounded tired and from what I heard (read) on the radio show, he was.

Hope he gets some rest.  Maybe I will stop by and drop him off a few Vitamin C drinks and energy drinks to boost him up. I have a friend who lives on the base who can help me.

I met them through another person by chance.


Loving the new school. Still no allergies.

I will be taking my new classes after I get my severance pay which I hope is soon.  I also want to get a new smart phone.

I got a new computer.  Much needed since the main ones (laptop and netbook) have had it.

I will post a pic later on


…Did I come across clearly enough?

New Job = ^___^

Co Workers = ^___^

Location = ^___^

Students (that I have met so far) = ^____^ (little psychopaths. Cute and fun though.)

No Allergies = ^_________________________________^

Now for the   (side eye)

Emailed previous teacher and got 2 emails back, but I didn’t really read before replying back like normal.  I sat down and actually read it and just felt the ire stirring when I thought about it.  Here goes the 6th sense again.
