Reunited and it Feels *so* Good!

After a long day of corrupting young minds...





In the immortal words of Sir Elton John, "the bitch is back!" Sort of. Despite the claim by some that dozens of unsecured wireless networks are floating around everywhere in Korea like the worrisome air pollution, I'm dead in the water in my apartment.






No doubt you, my multiplying fanbase, have been very sad in not recieving an update in so long. Well, this long hiatus hasn't exactly been a picnic for me either, for there's no one else in the vicinity to appreciate my subtle brand of humor.
I am teaching English (or at least trying on the illusion of doing so, at Ung Cheong elementary school, just outside of Ulsan city. The school has been around since 1922, and it's my aim to topple the pillars of history.



For most everyone else, presumably, they have just completed their second week of teaching. I just finished my first week, and reflecting upon my short time here, I am PUMPED! Certainly committed to becoming a better teacher. My kids are adorable and pretty malleable. Never in a million years will I learn hardly any of their names unless I take some drastic measures. What's with most Korean names having the same format and rhythm? Kim So-young, Park Min-su, etc. Still, the week in teaching went pretty well, as I know a lot of what to expect.




















Anyway, Despite my wish to write a more detailed report, I am forced to resign, because I, my friends, am at a PC Bang. (sigh).
Until later,

SUBISU

Adrienne, I get your brand of humour. You should post more and let me know when you update. I read a few of the past blogs after the most recently one; really satirical. Love it. And I think I may actually have a kid called Park Min-su. I hear the name a lot at the very least. I came by this way through the link on your Facebook so make sure you post the link there again for me to follow (or even on MY blog because I'll definitely get it that way).

Adrienne, I get your brand of humour. Good to see you're still getting 'round at the PC방s. And thanks for reminding me about the TimTam Slam Jam. I have (3) TimTams left but mum said she was sending me another parcel so I hope there's some more in there. Funny about the kid's names. I think I may even have a Park Min-su because I keep hearing the name at least. I think I have remembered two of my kid's names so far but I haven't tried to learn them or done any activities where they have to give me their name. I'll get there. I've heard Korean names before so it doesn't seem as hard for me. Make sure you let me know when you update this blog again; I like your satirical style of writing. Post a message on my Facebook. I'll be sure to get it that way.

LOL I'm not sure what's happening. Am I posting three times? First it asked me to log into Livejournal to post the comment and it erased my comment (or at least it seemed that way), so I typed up something similar and tried posting it again O_O. Luckily I'm so blindlingly beautiful that no one will notice and I can get away with this kind of stuff...
