I’m a big girl now…kind of

It’s been a challenging, well, month for me as you might be able to tell. The constant moping that I don’t have a wonderful and dashing foreign husband by now (preferably a singing  Scottish one), Continue reading


May Flowers


First off I just want to say: feliz cinco de mayo! Now that that’s out of the way, allow me to fill you in on what’s been going on here in the past few weeks. I honestly think that the major occurrence that needs to be shared is the purchase of an insanely nice jacket. And dress. Not sure if you appreciate this news as much as I do, but it was a pretty big deal in my life. Which just goes to show that a whole lot of NOTHING has been happening in my life.

Crap, I AM American…

It’s been over a month since we arrived in Seoul, and my feelings on the matter are starting  to sway a bit. Don’t get me wrong, Seoul can be a good time. Today Meghan, our new friend, and I went to see one of the palaces here in Seoul. “Finally! Something cultural.

And I’m pretty sure that the exhaustion from it all is causing me to hallucinate, because today the brick sidewalk patterns started to look like Nazi swastikas. Anyways, I think I’ve been spoiled up until now in my work experience, because I am not entirely convinced that my coworkers are not actually robots. It’s the only explanation that I can come up with for how they can get everything they get done done.

Actually, I have no idea what they get done. I just know what they want ME to get done. Don’t get me wrong, Continue reading
