Strange Sunday!

Sunday should be a time for relaxation, a time to unwind with family and friends. put your feet up with a cup of tea and just chill out (all the while trying to forget you have work on Monday). Well this particular Sunday had all of these promising traits; I’d had a significant lie in,Continue reading “Strange Sunday!”

I LOVE JAR JAR!

I hope this doesn’t offend too many huge Star Wars fans out there; you know the die-hard types that actually put “Jedi” down as their religion on important forms, and hope to one day actually construct a real light saber in their garage workshop. I mean no harm, but please hear me out as IContinue reading “I LOVE JAR JAR!”

KIDS MAKE ME SICK.

Kids make me sick. And, no, not just uncomfortable, or a little bit queasy – but down right, pit of the stomach, SICK. It’s just something that they do that can turn that “thank God it’s Friday!” feeling, into “thank God I didn’t eat a large greasy breakfast”…let me run you through Friday’s events realContinue reading “KIDS MAKE ME SICK.”

Scream Train

Public transport is a funny thing isn’t it? Not haha funny, but you know…weird. Odd. Strange. Often horrifying. That kind of funny – so not really funny at all I suppose, but still – often eventful… I find the Seoul subway is actually quite tame for the most part, perhaps because I am comparing withContinue reading “Scream Train”

Sex-O-Phone

It’s very common-place for a foreigner in Korea to be stopped, and chatted to by perfect strangers. After all there are many English learners, and even more individuals who are simply curious! And none are more curious than the elderly in Korea! Believe me! To be honest because of this it’s actually pretty challenging toContinue reading “Sex-O-Phone”

The Shit Sandwich

Sometimes life doesn’t go smoothly. No sorry…let me rephrase that –  life never goes smoothly. And you know what? That’s good! This is what makes life interesting in my opinion! The thrills, the spills! The highs, the lows! The laughter, the tears! All of this serves to add vibrant colour to life’s pages, and forges memories that makeContinue reading “The Shit Sandwich”

Arguments with Children

Arguments with children…I don’t know why I even allow myself to be suckered in – EVERY SINGLE TIME. Perhaps it’s some kind of vague ambition to truly educate, and make a difference…so that years in the future the now fully grown child reminisces and admits: “He was right! I’m so thankful he steered me in the rightContinue reading “Arguments with Children”

Poo-Poo Monkey

You know…the unfair thing about playing with kids is…well, it’s unfair.  You enter into the game like any other – thinking it will be a level playing field (because that’s how games should be right?!) but you quickly find it will be anything but. Like today I was instructed I was a “Poo-Poo Monkey” that was runningContinue reading “Poo-Poo Monkey”

Lost Child

Gotta tell you this one real quick…it’s a story I was told just yesterday – drama central over here trust me! So there’s a larger school near the kindergarten I work at…and the parents are up in arms at the moment – full pitchfork and flaming torches kinda deal (well you know, metaphorically!) …news travels fast hereContinue reading “Lost Child”

Alarm Clock Hock

I used to be awoken by alarm clock every day, like just about everyone the world over…it’s annoying little chime would rudely awake me from my peaceful rest in slumberland, and bring me back to the real world with a grunt and a grimace. However now this routine has became somewhat defunct: No longer needed!Continue reading “Alarm Clock Hock”
