Episode #14: Frozen Dom

Translation Credit goes to Hyo ^^
So yeah…as I wrote the other day, Hyo had surprised me after work. It was just an awful day for me. Kids weren’t really on their best behavior and i had to get on them about their behavior. The homeroom teacher ended up making each student come to my office one by one to apologize. A nice gesture, but a bit overkill to me lol.

 

Anyways, I came home from work after she had texted me what I was going to eat for dinner. I was kind of suspicious because it seemed like she was probing for info for some reason. Actually when I got to my apartment, I thought about how funny it would be if she were there. Turned out to be a good evening and we had 닭계장 and 설렁탕. Very delicious. Anyways, I’m happy Friday is almost here. This week has been long. I will also buy a new Macbook this weekend as this one is 6 years old and showing its age. Hopefully it will allow me to make comics easier as this one slows down sometimes. Until next time!

Back Online

So the site is back online. I had the blog hosted on Blogger, but I started hating it because I wasn’t able to customize things easily like I can on WordPress. Had to transfer the domain name and a few other things from Blogger to WordPress, so there were some technical issues earlier today. So frustrating!

I can kind of get addicted to this stuff and not quit until I finish so I stayed up until 4am toying with and fixing problems. Just fun for me but I paid for it today. I was so tired but had a nice surprise when I came home as Hyo was waiting for me. I love those kinds of surprises. The day was long and rough, but that surprise completely turned things around. Scared me when I saw her, but it was all good!

Anyways, I hope there are no more technical problems. Good night and look for a new episode a little later in the week as I’m a little busy the next few days. 잘 자요!!

Episode #13: Stealing Chocolate?


So yes…I was pretty embarrassed when this happened last night. But my friend had been there before and when he told me to take a sample, I assumed that they just gave out samples all the time. And…it was a lot of chocolate on that plate.

I was also chewing gum at the time and when I took the chocolate, I went to spit my gum out when he told me it wasn’t a sample. If I wasn’t chewing the gum, the chocolate would’ve been gone into my mouth very quickly.

Anyways, it was a fun moment, and we all laughed about it later. It was a good night. For dinner we had some Peking Duck, and it was our first time trying it. It was pretty delicious. Can’t believe the weekend is already over (like I say to myself every weekend). Hope you guys had a good one. Also, I added a different system to the comments on this site (Disqus) so feel free to leave some and try it out. Until next time!

Episode #11: 오리 Duck

Mistakes like these are common and it’s pretty funny when they happen for both of us. But it also helps us learn as well. This was when my Korean was still not very good (still not that much better now IMO), but I basically learned from Hyo a lot of the phrases I say almost naturally now.

Episode #10: Hawaii

So yea…Hyo tends to keep me grounded sometimes as I am a very easygoing, go with the flow kind of person. I also like to think I keep her in the air, when she’s too grounded. It’s a good balance. This situation wasn’t funny right when it was happening, but looking back, it was pretty funny and silly of me not to see what was happening.

I guess I was just excited to be with her in Hawaii and was just taking the experience all in lol.

Anyways, this trip was good because at the time (December 2011), I had to go back to the states after my teaching contract ended. I had applied to come back to teach in February/March 2012, but I had no idea what city I would be going to or what month.

3 months seemed like a long time to us and it was (and I know some people in relationships who have had it worse), but we were able to meet in Hawaii in February 2012 and have an awesome time.

I ended up coming back in March to teach and in the same city as her…lucky us!
