I found this website. And there went my afternoon.
I did the whole laughing-but-trying-not-to-so-it-comes-out-sounding-kind-of-like-you’re-choking bit. Which works ’cause the Korean version of “hahahaha” is “kkkkk.” So maybe I fit right in?
(I was supposed to “work from home” today and tomorrow, but the vice-principal is the one who had said I could, and he’s out until Friday so he can’t give me verbal permission, so…this is what happens.)
Anyways. Some insights into what life is like here for those across the ocean, and a few laughs for those who live here with me!

Because they really ARE impossible to find when you need them.

Shopping in Korea really is this ridiculous
And I thought the passing-people-awkwardly deal ended after college. Nope!
Gotta get that food delivered on time!
I am DEFINITELY hunting for Korean restaurants first thing after I get back to the U.S.! They perfected the art of barbecue and all-you-can-eat-meat.
