the things you do just end up hurting me

Girl: Why is it that you only do things that hurt me?
Boy: Why is it that you place all the blame on me?

An older sketch, sadly still just a tiny bit relevant to my life.

But truth is, when you've looked at your past relationships, at least for me, after time passes I can see that both sides did wrong. So yes, I have some blame in everything. It's never wise to see only what you want to, because sometimes you want to be the victim so you won't have to face your shortcomings.

Soon I'll buy a proper scanner here, get some sketches finished and colored so I can finally have another tag aside from 'sketches.'

shouting korea redux

I was jarred awake from my slumber this morning in a manner I have never quite experienced. My whole apartment SHOOK from the force of every single person in my building screaming at the same time.

I have explained that Koreans take their sports series, and this World Cup is definitely no different. But the game was on at 3 AM this morning so...

When they scored their first goal, everyone cheered. At 3 in morning. At the same time.

My reaction, of course, was, "What the fu--"
Oh, Korea.

Shouting! Korea!

Wow, I'm actually in another country for the World Cup.

And Koreans are INTENSE.
They shout things like, KOREA! FIGHTING! Or SHOUTING KOREA! all the time on tv.

I only really care because I had to lay money down for who will win at work. COME ON KOREA!!

Oh how sweet life is.....

mom's touch of AWESOME

I made hamburgers for dinner and while I was cooking a Canadian cooking show came on the TV (subtitled into Korean, but who cares?! I love cooking shows).

Grabbed some fries at this place Mom's Touch behind my apartment for a side. You know what's wicked? The ajumma gave me my fries in a cup, which she put in another larger cup that was filled with ice and soda. It is like the coolest thing that came from fast food EVER, and all for 2,000 won.

Served with Heinz. You will never be able to take all the Pittsburgh out of me, and my devotion to Heinz is proof of this.

Life is awesome.

And I'm choosing to be happy.

phew let's take a break from miss emo and talk about miss titty

Ah, contrary to latest posts, my life is actually quite enjoyable. We all need a mechanism to cope, mine just happens to be typing on a computer. But hey, at least I'm not drowning my sorrows in copious amounts of booze and vices.

What's really pulling me through right now are the kids. They've been really trying, but God help me I can't help but love the little buggers. Ah, I'm going to sound like one of those moms that obsess over every thing their child does. But I have over 20 instead of one!

It's been hot here in Busan (finally) and I work a sleeveless t-shirt to work because, let's face it, it gets stuffy packed in a room with hyper kids. I teach one class of second grade girls science on Fridays, and today Ruby tells me, "Teacher.... you have titties!"

And my jaw just dropped. WTF. A million things cross your mind at that point, "Where did she learn that?" "Does she know what that means" "Do I laugh?" "Do I yell?"

So I just cross my arms and say, "Don't look!!!"
Caught her! She blushes and goes, "I don't look!!" Very embarrassed. Ahahahah!!!! And yeah... today I've actually been groped by a lot of students. Boys AND girls. The hell? Like Jenny just reached up and honked 'em. Woah. But then I just have to laugh.

And in another science class I taught the students about optical illusions. This class is more of a beginning English class so it was more challenging BUT-- what made it awesome is that I taught all the students to say 'illlllluuuuuuuusion' like Gob does from Arrested Development. Fuck yeah.

And one day, when you run into a Korean that says 'illlluuuuuuuusion' and then breaks into 'Final Countdown' you can thank me. THANK ME.
