Guys I have met…

Here are the men I have met in the past two weeks… Or has it only been a week?

GOB1- met him through his friend unintentionally on my part, but intentional on his. His friend spoke to me and got my number as friends (dude is married) and GOB1 messages me that night saying he wants to take me out. More on that date later in a different post.

GOB2 – met him by chance on the first bus to catch the second bus toward home. Total cutie. Lived in America for awhile. Might have been a chance for a date but I was too worn out from not enough sleep in the last few days to realize it. We have each others instant messenger ID though and can get in contact with each other easily.

There is another guy, but he isn’t korean and I don’t know much about him. No idea where he is from. We were just chatting and he gave me great info on how to get my teaching certification without having to go home. Not going to count him in this… As far as I know anyway.




Ya’ll are going to love this…Ankh

Been getting frequent signs, from the PTB, that I should have many boyfriends before I get with my Sexy for me.

Meaning I should be casually dating.

Took me a couple of days to open up to it, because I didn’t feel like going thru stupid crap, but I have to and figure out what I want.

Like with the first Korean boyfriend. Example #1 of what I don’t want. Disrespectful dudes, who don’t show up when they specifically asked you to come see them. Then have the nerve to message 6 months later and say they want to be friends.

Yeah… No.

Now, that I am open to casual dating, I have been seeing some nice to seriously good looking men popping up wherever I go and they are speaking to me or focusing on me.

Hanging out…

I found “hanging out” in Korea and the U.S. is different.

A guy and a girl hanging out doesn’t automatically mean that they are boyfriend and girlfriend by people who see them.  They are just out doing things together and are good friends or possibly close relatives.

Guy + Girl (hanging out) = good friends/ relatives

In Korea…

My birthday was Friday…

A few of the teachers I work with at the school threw me a little surprise bday party/ going away party for me.  It cam with piza and cake.  The pizza was ulike anything I had ever seen before and was pretty good. (I picked off the olives, I don’t like those.) The cake was delicious.

One of my students gave me index cards as a birthday gift and said “Teacher…study!” Their way of telling me to study Korean.

Days off and Winter Vacation

Stayed in Seoul at the usual place and went out with Little Bothers from Another Mother (LBFAM).

Max and John (blue jacket)

Max is such a gentleman and very sweet and John is a sweetheart too. Max is 25 and John is 26, that s why they have the little brother title. Apparently Max is built to. I didn’t know till John pointed it out teasing him. I won’t know till it gets warmer though. I only know he has good arms from the way his jacket fit his arm.

Here is some food that we ate:

Payday, bills, and whims…and a little bit on Cafe Guy and the Cafe

My hair is a little past my neck now. And I can put it up in a real pony tail and have a little bush. ^___^

Takes 3 hours to straighten though since I am natural and I think my hair has gotten even thicker. I am going to find a salon and pay someone else to do it.

Any way…

Today was payday. Some people were curious how much bills run here. Too pay all my bills in Korea it takes around $150 to $200. Depends on what I was doing. I was sick for a month and a half, since I was always cold I had the heater on high as well as an electric blanket. Now that I am better that should go down to half of what I paid this month. I had to pay 2 months worth on cable and internet because I inadvertently sent the bil back because the previous teachers name was on it. I didn’t realize it is the bill for the cable and internet. Here, you take over everything for the other teacher. If you want it switched or off you have to ask your Korean coworker, unless you are fluent in Korean. It causes less hassle. This month I paid around $300 for everything together and that is rounding up. I pay bills by the bill atm machine and it is so easy and I paid them all within 2 – 3 minutes. It is all in Korean, but I know what buttons to push. One day I will do a video, if anyone is interested in it. Plus, it is easy to send money home when you go inside the bank and do it. It goes faster if you done it before and have your receipt it cuts down time. They know me and they know around what date I will come in to send money and it takes about minutes to get it done now. If you miss when the bank is open you could transfer money to your overseas account by the ATM, but it is very complicated. Even the bank teller told me so and said it is easier and quicker to come inside the bank.


After all that I went to the movies in Suwon. The subway, metro and Mall is in the same building. Just go upstairs. I went to see Season of the Witch. It sucks and was boring (x infinity). I kept nodding off and so did the Korean guy next to me. Apparently, I can understand Korean when I am half sleep or not paying full attention, since I clearly heard his friend say “She fell asleep.” Was going to see Megamind, but I looked at the seats I could guess plenty of kids were in there and the thought of having my seat kicked…Umm…No. I’ll see it later.

Before the movie though, I went to the Cafe. It’s on the same floor as the movie theater so I don’t have to walk far to make the movie. I made a few observations, that I didn’t notice before:

    Cafe Guy wears a name tag, but I couldn’t read it without staring at him for a bit. I can read Korean but not that fast yet. I am working on it.
    There is a new guy there who watches me too. He is too young and too short for my taste. But he is a bit cute. I think this was his first day and he was nervous.
    There is only two pictures in that cafe: one is of fruit and the other is a painting of African Americans kneeling at a table with vases.
    I also noticed tall figurines of African Americans performing. THey are standalone ones that fit together. There are 4 men each playing a different instrument and the last one in the middle was a women in a red dress singing.

I am not sure if this is new or not because I usually sit on a different side. It was kind of busy today so I sat on the other side. The figurines are in the front of the cafe and displayed prominently along with the picture.

I am not sure if it has always been there or if it is because I frequent the place. I was distracted a bit. You understand. I am starting to notice more POC’s (especially Black) are being displayed in places I go a lot. I will keep looking.

Oh yeah, I bought a new computer because my main one is dying. I think I work it too hard. SO I will use my main for play and the new one for work…mostly and play.
