Shit vs. Spit

           vs.          

A lovely title, I know. Nevertheless, it’s very suiting to what I’m about to discuss, which are some of my pet peeves that I’ve encountered while traveling. As you are fully aware, I loved Argentina like it was my firstborn son. However, one downside of it was that you could not walk two steps in any direction without encountering a heaping pile of dog dung. So if you saw me walking with my head down, don’t think that it’s because I’m shy or antisocial; I just really don’t want dog shit on my shoes. Continue reading

I’m going to have grey hair by 2014

First off, I’m very sorry that it’s been so long since I’ve written, but the fact that I have been working from 9:00 a.m. to midnight or 1:00 a.m. every day is sort of putting a damper on blogging. 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

“I have flown a thousand miles to empty rooms and crowded isles.” (By Meg)

I am not quite sure what it is about this week, but I am just mentally not here. My emotions have caught up with me. I am not positive what is going on exactly, but I just feel indifferent about being here. I am not home sick to say the least, but I have a void I want to fill. I have noticed that if I keep busy I feel fine, but when I am home…that is another story. I urge for something. Something Korea just hasn’t provided me. Maybe Deputy was right after all. I am running from something, and searching for something else. Continue reading

A lot can happen in 3 weeks…. (Meg)

Come Thursday it will be 3 weeks since arriving in Korea, but tomorrow marks one month from when I left Virginia Beach. Needless to say, A LOT can happen in one month. I will save you all the massive details, but numerous people have come in and out of my life. I have begun my first real job. And, I have come to the realization you really do need an ARC card to do anything over here. (I am stuck in immigration limbo right now). Also…if you are traveling to another country just buy a stupid cell phone when you get there….don’t use ONESIMCARD. It has been nothing but miserable.

Anyway, I quite enjoy it here. I don’t think I would want to stay any longer than a year, which is why I am going to look into getting my TEFL once we start getting paid. I think New Zealand would be a nice place to live, lol. Anyway, I realized I have deprived myself of writing so I figured a little blurb would be better than nothing. For any of my friends from back home that do read this….I miss you all very much. XOXO
